Linda Sivrican is an award-winning perfumer, formulator, and the founder of Capsule Parfumerie in Los Angeles, California. Sivrican’s Vietnamese name, Thuy Huong, translates to ‘gentle fragrance.’ She suspects her mother — herself a floral designer and chef — must have known that her daughter’s destiny would entwine with the world of perfume.
Since 2012, Linda has composed and formulated a range of small batch, hand-blended, premium scents under the Capsule Parfumerie umbrella. Primarily self-taught, her work has been lauded by industry experts and publications such as L'Officiel, Vogue, Oprah, Allure, and the Wall Street Journal. Each brand — 8 to date, with a ninth on the way — prompts a special opportunity for Linda to draw upon aspects of her spirit and sensibility, ranging from the coastal to the cosmic. In her work, Linda is especially drawn to potent raw materials and the discovery of new aromatic frontiers, and is forever inspired by the diversity of her surroundings. As with any art practice, she melds precision with the freedom to explore and evolve.
In October 2016, Linda opened the company’s first retail store in the West Hollywood neighborhood of LA. There, she showcases her handcrafted perfumes alongside an array of independent, artisan-led brands, and hosts workshops for all who feel drawn to the profound practice of perfume-making. In September 2020, Linda won The Art & Olfaction 2020 Artisan Award for her creation, Nimbis.
