    He had a bone to pick with Chanel No. 5:

    I feel like there must be a huge hole somewhere filled with Chanel No. 5 because I never smell it on anyone. To me Chanel No.19 is far more iconic. Chanel No.5 survives on a myth.

    Thanks for this - I didn't realise he had overseen the re-make of Yohji Homme. Still haven't tried the new version, a friend sent me a bottle when it hit the Yohji store in London but some f***** at British Postal service must have taken a fancy a to it, they sent him back the empty packaging - "too dangerous to fly".

    I met Pescheux here a couple of years ago when Diptyque were launching something he had done - he didn't have much to say. My guest at the launch party was the Head of Fragrance from Guerlain and he just took one look at her card and said 'oh, so you are in the industry' and then more or less fled. Very strange.

    Thanks for posting, furrypine - interesting point - No.5 is rated #78 in fragrances on the Product page here, 84% positive by those members who have reviewed it.

    It's not legal, or safe, to ship perfume from the UK anymore. They snatched a bottle of Versace Green Jeans that I had posted as well. I then proceeded to make a claim, months ago, and never heard back.
