Helder Suffenplan studied art history and design in Cologne and Düsseldorf before he moved to Berlin in 2003 to work as an independent creative consultant focussing on publishing, arts & culture and luxury goods.

His work for clients as diverse as Neue National Galerie Berlin, 4711, Swarovski and Hotel Du Cap Eden-Roc has won many prizes and has been published in books and magazines around the globe. Helder has been fascinated by fragrance since his childhood days. In 2013 he created SCENTURY in order to share this passion with others. SCENTURY is an online magazine for perfume storytelling that strives to redefine the way we speak and think about fragrance.

2018 marks the second year of Helder Suffenplan's participation in the Art and Olfaction Awards. He will be judging the second round in the artisan and independent category.
