Welcome to SCENTURY,


the very first online magazine for perfume storytelling, founded in 2013.

Our goal is to redefine the way you speak and think about fragrance.

SCENTURY was initiated by Helder Suffenplan and since then has become a reference in the world of perfume — for industry insiders, aficionados and all other humans interested in all things beautiful and sensual.

With the help of creative writers and visual artists SCENTURY translates perfume into stories and images — a language everyone understands. A global network of creative innovators and fragrance experts helps us keep you up-to-date with everything fragrant.

SCENTURY is also a platform for the creative personalities behind the brands — perfumers and founders — who share their passion for fragrance with you in interviews and collaborations.

We hope you like what we’re doing — may the scent be with you!
