Egon Oelkers


In the world of fragrances, the name Egon Oelkers stands for understated luxury, beauty and harmony.

His work as a perfumer has taken Egon Oelkers to Cannes, New York, Geneva, Paris and Hamburg, but he has been shaped primarily as an individual by his travels to Asia. Here he has repeatedly encountered the sophisticated spices, fruity aromas and rare woods that subtly recur in many of his fragrances.

The qualified chemist began his training as a perfumer at the veteran company Haarmann & Reimer in Holzminden in 1967. Since then, Oelkers has achieved fame not only for his creations, but also for his parallel dedication to the training of a new generation of perfumers.

Oelkers’ compositions stand out for their discreet luxury and fine balance of fragrances.

Long walks in the mountains are his most frequent source of inspiration.

Egon’s style: extremely sophisticated yet reserved and opulent compositions.

Always finely balanced between fruity, floral, spicy and woody notes.

He is currently a senior perfumer at the prestigious Symrise, but in the professional environment he is not so much known as a perfumer, but as an excellent teacher who instructs future perfumers.
