Olvier Cresp, creator of the fragrance Flash Back, has origins in perfume tracing back to the 12th century in France. He was literally born into perfume. His father would bring back samples such as jasmine, rose, and bergamot for him to bathe in. Cresp's most renown work is 'Angel' for Thierry Mugler and 'Light Blue' for Dolce and Gabbana. He describes his style as figurative in that it is the idea that counts above all.
