Brigitte Witschi has been fascinated by scents her entire life. Now she creates her own special perfumes in her atelier in the Swiss capital of Bern. “Already as a child, I had an affinity for scents,” says Brigitte Witschi. “I experienced the world around me through my nose: freshly cut grass, dry wood, the young sheep on a farm and much more.” Besides, one of her neighbours worked as a perfumer. Witschi remembers: “When she developed new creations, she always had her windows wide open and I could smell from far away which mixture she was creating.” Witschi was allowed to help her with bottling, binding meshes and sticking the labels. The fascination for scents has accompanied her for her entire life.
