Maurice Roucel entered the Chanel laboratories as a chemist in 1973. This self-educated man defines himself as an "explorer that walks through formulas". Already then, he starts breaking down then studying each formula, each raw material with this half aesthete half chemist look, that still is his strength today. His generous writing is often based on musk notes, white flowers or amber. That is how he obtains this opulent sensuality that is his signature. Maurice Roucel's strong personality allows him not to follow trends. That is how he creates Musc Ravageur a perfume that trumped the fads of the time, a forerunner of all the new orientals that emerged in 2001.
