© What We Do Is Secret Quiz: Whose desk is it? Previous Post Next Post 15 Comments kuri June 28, 2006 at 10:44 am/ No idea! But nicely lit offices. Is that a YSL Baby Doll bottle in the picture on the left? Maybe it would help if I could identify the flowers, but I can’t. Sacre Nobi Post authorJune 28, 2006 at 11:29 am/ Good guess, but looking at a wrong bottle. Marina June 28, 2006 at 12:54 pm/ I can’t figure out what the big bottle is, and it is driving me insane Is the smaller one next to it Chanel? Looks like a woman’s desk to me…are the perfumer’s initials S. G.? Sacre Nobi Post authorJune 28, 2006 at 8:50 pm/ The big bottle is supposed to be the key, but now I’m not entirely sure if it’s what I think it is… I think the desk (in New York) looks clean but lacks character. SG’s home is in Manhattan, and her desk at IFF New York looks very SG. The thick black leather binder notebook – definitely an oldschool (the perfumer never uses email to communicate), but one of the most prolific. Marina June 28, 2006 at 11:13 pm/ All right. Another attempt. Are the perfumer’s (male this time) initials C. B. and has he created one of the 7 Deadly Sin scents, namely, Pride? Sacre Nobi Post authorJune 29, 2006 at 8:32 am/ Last hint. CB is as prolific and as elegant as the perfumer in question, but CB’s home is in NYC. Also he is very quick in response with email. The desk in the picture was used only once in a while when the perfumer came to New York from Geneva. Marina June 29, 2006 at 10:06 am/ I would have said, based on that, that it’s either Thierry Wasser or Alberto Morillas, but aren’t they at Firmenich? So I am going to say Dominique Ropion and then I give up Sacre Nobi Post authorJune 29, 2006 at 2:27 pm/ Sorry, you missed winning my ‘candy box’… Marina June 29, 2006 at 7:36 pm/ Hrmph! lilybp June 30, 2006 at 9:41 am/ Guessing Alberto Morillas, since Marina didn’t! Sacre Nobi Post authorJune 30, 2006 at 11:17 am/ Atari ! (you got it right) You can see him working at the desk here. I will send you the candy box if you could email me your mailing address to madebyblog at gmail.com. lilybp June 30, 2006 at 11:23 am/ Yay! I’m so excited–I never win anything! Mailing you right away! Victoria June 30, 2006 at 5:45 pm/ The bottle is Lancome Miracle, no? Sacre Nobi Post authorJune 30, 2006 at 6:12 pm/ lilybp, thanks for the info. It will be mailed to you tomorrow morning. Victoria, I’ve never checked, but I believe it’s Miracle. kuri July 3, 2006 at 10:47 am/ very elegant!
