founder and CEO of AMATRIUS®.
She received her degree in Business Administration from the Vienna University of Economics and proceeded to pursue a career in advertising. She was recruited as Head of Advertising at Netway AG, Austria’s first internet provider. She followed this as Director of the Central and Eastern Europe region for the communications agency MediaCom, where she consulted major brands for nearly a decade, designing and managing strategies for their market entry, establishment and development.
Her enthusiasm for her profession notwithstanding, the associated travel was a considerable burden for her young daughters. They dealt with their mother’s absence from home by cuddling with T-shirts that smelled of her perfume. This smell calmed and relaxed the girls. Nora was able to achieve her personal work-life balance by spending as much time as possible with her family and by taking walks in the forest behind her home to enjoy the scent of the forest as an effective and natural means of relaxation.
Nora Rosenblat was fascinated by the beneficial influence of smells on the human psyche. She began to think about the targeted use of scents as a means of creating harmony and inner balance and began exploring how this could be done.
She teamed up with experts, Geza Schön and Hanns Hatt, and discovered in them the ideal partners to help her create a new, revolutionary approach to the use of fragrances by applying science and creativity. Together they have developed scents that actively and directly address and systematically stimulate wearers on an emotional level.
Nora Rosenblat is the initiator of the idea and the inspiration behind the four initial AMATRIUS® fragrances – the world’s first active fragrance series for men and women.

As Professor of Cell Biology at the Ruhr University Bochum, Hatt is one of the world’s most renowned olfactory researchers and is among the most distinguished cell physiologists in Europe.
Hanns Hatt’s research work makes an essential contribution to human olfactory perception. His pioneering work on the structure and function of olfactory receptor proteins has consolidated his international recognition.
Hatt, the “Ambassador of Smell”, is the author of numerous books and has been published in scientific and journalistic media for many years.
His comprehensive findings provide the scientific basis for the effectiveness of the AMATRIUS® Eau de Parfum series.
With an international reputation as a revolutionary in the fragrance industry, Geza Schön is one of the most sought-after perfumers in the world.
His iconoclastic creations disregard the traditional “fragrance pyramid” composition of a scent, as well as the constraints of the global perfume market. With the active fragrances developed for Amatrius, Geza breaks with the common perception of scents and creates the world’s first scientifically formulated active fragrance series. These fragrances are not only pleasing to our olfactory senses, but also specifically work to make their wearers happier.
