    Couldn't agree more! At a time when 'traditional' advertising is becoming less effective than it used to be, 'friendly expert' endorsement has the potential to become more powerful and influential than ever. You're absolutely right: the very fact that CB is recommending these perfumes is a form of marketing.

    Still, as you say, that doesn't make the idea any less intriguing or endearing.

    Agreed. I sometimes get exasperated by how much people believe fragrance marketing, even here on BN (ESPECIALLY here on BN). Time for a positive paradigm shift!

    Splendid idea - hopefully Burr’s high profile will mean more people will re-think their approach to fragrance a little.

    In my mind the more people who judge fragrances on what they smell like, rather than what marketeers say about them the more interesting the market is likely to get.

    It is not exactly a "blind sniff" because Chandler Burr describes/advertises the scent in this introductory video. Check this out:

    An interesting idea, but at the same time I wasn't sure I wanted to go through all the stuff, and give out all the masses of information that Open Sky requires of a person, so was unable to find out anything further about this on their site.

    30 Roses, as soon as I typed my comment I thought, "Oh. Yeah. Blind sniffs!" Shoot, I've even participated. Thanks for the reminder. I am suitably chastened. (;

    Very interesting. He's putting into action something I've always wondered about, the woo factor in scent marketing.
