Christophe Laudamiel is a French perfumer who has worked in the fragrance industry for over 20 years. He created fragrances for brands such as Azzaro, Balenciaga, and Yves Saint Laurent.

In 2006, Laudamiel left to launch his own perfume brand, Phaedon. His first fragrance for the brand, A Kind of Blue, was inspired by the work of artist Yves Klein. He has since created several other fragrances for Phaedon, including In Bloom (2009) and Midnight Sun (2010).
