      Editor's note: This interview was held in March by Mia Clarke, founder of Estellana, who has kindly shared it with us here.

      In March I had the pleasure in meeting with Michael Edwards at this years Esxence in Milano to discuss the wonderful world of perfume and the 28th Edition of his perfume guide Fragrances of the World. Michael is known as an expert in the business with a background in the industry since the 1960s. He spends his time between his homes in Sydney, Paris and New York in order to meet with perfumers regularly to discuss new fragrances to be launched. He can then work on their classifications for the next edition of what is known in the industry as the Perfume Bible.
