Bruno Delavigne learned the art of perfume making at a young age from his grandfather Xavier while living in the Montmartre district of Paris. After witnessing his grandfather's tragic death in an unfortunate fragrance-related explosion, Bruno vowed to honor Xavier's memory by becoming a perfumer. It was during these early years that Bruno suffered a terrible accident himself in which he lost the use of his nose.
Despite this, he persevered and after years of blood, sweat and tears, Bruno eventually expanded his grandfather's tiny shop into the Delavigne Corporation: one of the leaders in the high-stakes world of cosmetics and beauty products. Bruno was helped by his best friend and confidant Horatio Oléré in this endeavor, and to this day the two are inseparable.
Bruno, whose romantic status remains murky, divides his time between San Francisco and numerous other exotic locales. He takes an active role in the continued development of his business but makes sure he pursues his other passions in life.
Bruno travels regularly, loves interacting with his San Francisco-based staff, and has recently taken up surfing. Bruno can be found every year in Pamplona for the infamous running of the bulls. Bruno is also an avid supporter of environmental causes and charities. He is particularly dedicated to promoting awareness of fragrance fire prevention.
