“In creating a scent there is an entire process, I give attention to every last detail from concept, formulation, design, packaging, marketing and PR to ensure that dilution does not affect this perfect source of energy.” Her interest and passion for all that is fragrant began in India where she discovered, through exotic flavors and colours, the power of layering scents. She had an intrinsic early awareness that fragrances have the power to evoke emotions, and can be associated with a place or person to awaken memories and feelings. This drive and vision has already won her six coveted FiFi awards and has heightened her profile. Her expertise and knowledge is highly sought after, and she has been featured in numerous publications worldwide including iD, British Vogue, Marie Claire, Marie Claire Italia, WWD, US Vogue, Wink, Another, Grazia, The Independent Magazine, The Observer, Elle, The Sunday Times, GQ, ES Magazine, The Telegraph, Tatler, Harpers Bazaar, NY Times, Cosmopolitan, and Woman’s hour on BBC radio 4 and many more.
October 2015 saw the launch of an exclusive collaboration with leading luxury retailer Harvey Nichols. Under the moniker, The Perfumer’s Story, Azzi launched 11 limited edition men’s, women’s and unisex perfumes from her previously unreleased back catalogue. The first time that Glasser, who is known for her ground-breaking fragrances and iconic client portfolio, had made these scents available at retail.
