About the Instructor:

Hiro Nakayama is the founder and project director behind Project Felicia. She has been a long time collector of perfume, but she only came to fragrance as a profession 10 years ago after her divorce was finalized in court. During the process, she almost lost her sense of smell.

As she walked out, however, there was a farmers' market with flowers and vegetables, and she thoroughly enjoyed the strong fragrance from the plants, as if they were expressing themselves. With her desire to share such a fragrant joy, Hiro founded Project Felicia.

She started serving as a freelance consultant to niche brands, actively participating in fragrance events, and successfully assisted brands in expanding their businesses to international markets as well. She is also a Certified Fragrance Sales Specialist by the Fragrance Foundation in New York.

Hiro is Japanese-American Fragrance Globe-Trotter, a New Yorker, born and raised in Japan, currently residing in Singapore and enjoys scent travel in Asia Pacific in search of new fragrance brands and ingredients. She occasionally writes articles in professional magazines.
