Luz Vaquero, Global Fragrance Creative Director at Iberchem, inducted into the Academia del Perfume

Luz Vaquero figures among the six new Academicians inducted into the Academia del Perfume

She was inducted during a special ceremony held earlier this month in the Auditorium of the University of Alcalá de Henares. This recognition is a testament to her dedication and significant contribution to the art and science of perfumery. This year, five women and two men joined what is considered the world’s elite of Spanish-speaking perfumers.

As the tradition goes, the academy assigned an armchair to each of its members. The Academicians are then invited to name their armchair after a raw material used in perfumery, resulting in an analogy to the perfumer’s organ. “Tuberose is an enveloping white flower, inspiring and with a narcotic effect,” said Luz Vaquero. “It enhances a fragrance but without becoming the protagonist. It is not the queen of flowers, nor is it present in all perfumes, but it represents that special touch that rounds out a composition, that silent luxury that provides quality. In a similar way, the perfumer is that silent luxury behind a perfume. For these reasons, I chose to name my chair Tuberose“, Luz Vaquero said.

Following her appointment, Luz is now part of the “elite” group of perfumers recognised by the academy, which includes great names such as Alberto Morillas and Olivier Cresp. With her knowledge, experience, and reputation, she will continue to be an influential leader and source of inspiration for the perfume industry. Her experience and passion will enrich the legacy of the academy and will contribute to the continuous advancement of the profession.

Luz Vaquero is known nationally and internationally for her extensive experience within the industry and her dedication to perfumery. She has signed hundreds of creations around the world, from mainstream scents to niche perfumery. Her experience and passion have left a significant mark on the industry, inspiring generations of perfumers and aficionados alike.
