Sofia BardelliNose of In Astra
Having always been passionate about perfumes, Sofia has shaped her education in order to pursue her dream. Having graduated in pharmacy, Sofia moved to Grasse, the world perfume capital on the French Riviera to attend the Grasse Institute of Perfumery, promoted by Givaudan. Studying and training in Grasse taught her to love the best quality raw materials, which often inspire her creativity and are recognisable in her olfactory signature. Immediately after graduating, she was headhunted by a major French company in the sector. In 2019 she returned to Italy to work as creative perfumer for a fragrance house, where she has composed perfumes for international and Italian perfume brands.
Sofia draws inspiration for her creations from her unique sensitivity to everything surrounding her: the natural world and its flowers, travelling to faraway places, meeting people and listening to their stories.
