Gattefossé, René-Maurice (L)
René-Maurice Gattefossé (1881-1950) was the brother of Jean Gattefossé. He also wrote about Atlantis in the 1920’s. He was a chemist by profession and is credited with the coining of the term ‘aromatherapy’ in 1937. He had an interest in a number of esoteric subjects and was probably one of the first to suggest that a very ancient civilisation had existed on Antarctica that subsequently spread to Atlantis, which he identified as a large island in the Atlantic. He died in Morocco at the home of his brother, Jean.
