BDK PARFUME TUBÉREUSE IMPÉRIALE - 2ML
Nonchalant, she walks with regular strides. Her headpiece and the swing of her hips are well rehearsed. She doesn’t want to seem to pretty in her white headdress. Sovereign, she faints ignorance while passer-by’s stares cover the light coloured turban that unfolds in a corolla. Her frail silhouette sways proudly under the weight of this crown of sunshine: the envy of all flowers.

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH DAVID BENEDEK... An exclusive interview with the founder of BDK Parfums
avid benedek What initially inspired the creation of BDK Parfums? BDK Parfums is inspired by the tradition of modern French perfumery. It comes from who I am and the city in which I grew up, Paris. My passion for perfume comes from my childhood as I spent so much time in the perfumery shop of my parents. Then, when I graduated from French Institute of Fashion, I definitely thought I would want to express my vision of what can be alternative luxury perfumery today. What was the thought process behind the name of the brand? BDK comes from my family name, Benedek. As the brand is really related to stories and words, I wanted to create a brand with an acronym. There are not so many brands with 3 letters so that makes us different. Itâ€™s sharp and modern. 38
Which scent from the range have you fallen in love with? Absolutely all of them, they are all very special to me. Each BDK creation is different but with the same signature. I have a special mention for Bouquet de Hongrie because it pays tribute to my roots and especially my grandmother Edith. Right now, I’m wearing Crème de cuir which is my latest creation.
Each bdk creation is different but with the
When did you discover your passion for fragrance? When I was 8-10 years old I would say. I used to spend a lot of time in the bathroom of my grandmother. She used to have so many perfumes! Collectors ones I would say. She was the one who first taught me the history of perfume. I then researched, and when I graduated from Economics and I entered French Institute of Fashion, I understood clearly that this is what I wanted to do. What do you consider the most important aspect when it comes to choosing a personal fragrance? Take your time first. A fragrance is something that will end up your silhouette or allure so it’s very important that you have to feel that the fragrance suits you perfectly.
b k d How do you think your fragrance background has inﬂuenced you when it came to creating BDK? You know, I was really surrounded by perfumes since I was very young but that was in Paris. So I would say that I have a very French background. You can feel it in the BDK Parfums collection. The way we build our olfactory structure is triangular always with top, heart and back notes. But now, I’m also interested in building more linear perfume, more round.
How long did it take you to create each of the BDK fragrances? Depends. Some of them needed 3 months of work, other ones needed 1 or even 2 years! It depends on the complexity of the formula, the raw material you use and the message you want to deliver!
How do you overcome the conﬂict between your own personal preference within scent creation and the tastes and preferences of the audience? Take your time first. A fragrance is something that will end up your silhouette or allure so it’s very important that you have to feel that the fragrance suits you perfectly.
What is on the horizon for BDK? BDK Parfums is still a small independent maison for now. It has been 3 years since we launched the brand and day after day, there are always new challenges. It’s so exciting. My dream would be that BDK Parfums keeps growing in the same way, always keeping in mind that we are here to propose beautiful creations. We hope we will open a boutique in Paris soon and we are launching two new perfumes next September and a new collection in 2020.
We wanted to deliver more than the average beauty box. Simply put, we wanted to be better. To offer quality brands that people would love and feature products that were more substantial than a hand scrub sample. So we Launched Cohorted in 2016, with a passion to provide premium products that you could actually experience and fall in love with… Fast forward to today and Cohorted has become the go-to discovery destination for consumers that want to connect with both new and established premium beauty brands that can offer them something new and different to their beauty regimes. We advocate “Be You Be Beautiful”. Because we believe in encouraging individuality and embracing beauty in all forms. We believe in empowering our customers by providing a platform to celebrate new beauty trends and movements. As a company, we value our environmental footprint and strive to be as sustainable as possible. Our Beauty for Conservation® movement champions sustainable beauty and supports charitable efforts that help us all take a step closer towards a more sustainable future.
OUR NEW VISION Our Beauty for Conservation® movement aims to raise awareness of our environmental impact as consumers and guide us as a socially responsible business to help address the sustainability challenge that we all face and experience as contributors in the beauty industry.
THE CONCEPT THE CHALLENGE THE CHANGE
With an ongoing focus for the well-being of our planet, we believe that creating resilient, sustainable and environmentally conscious products is key to ensuring our resourceconstrained world is not accelerated further. Our Beauty for Conservation® initiative aims to address some of our planet’s sustainability issues, by bringing forward products which are increasingly sustainable, produced with ecological awareness in mind, helping us move closer to a cleaner planet.
Every day we are challenged by factors of the modern world which contribute to the erosion of our beautiful planet; nature is being destroyed at astonishing rates. The shocking statistics that follow highlight the challenge we face and the need to turn things around, urgently: • Every day close to 8 million pieces of plastic pollution find their way into our oceans • 100,000 marine mammals and turtles and 1 million sea birds are killed by marine plastic pollution annually • Every 2 seconds man destroys an area of forest the size of a football field • 28,000 species are expected to become extinct during the next 25 years • More than 120 billion units of packaging are produced every year by the global cosmetics industry, the majority of which are not recyclable The recent shun of single-use plastic is just one example of a step in the right direction. Here at Cohorted, we believe that together we can all make a small difference, which could lead to big changes. We encourage our customers to become conscious cosmetic consumers, by choosing well and considering a products full life cycle and environmental implications. Our Beauty for Conservation movement strives to aid conscious purchasing, by offering products which our customers can feel confident about. We’re committed to lowering our environmental impact wherever possible. Cohorted has also pledged to support sustainable organizations and charities which share the same ecological goals and champion the same aspirational message… Together we can make a difference towards a more sustainable future. 47
