    for example tommy girl is perfect scent, but so terribly synthetic, that i just cry when i put it on!!! suffocating.....natural smells if beautiful smell 3 dimensional , synthetic may be the same smell but you still notice the difference in texture and longevity!!!
    thats why chanel will do good iris is not banned!!

    And even more restrictions. Several synthetics are on the allergen list, which may well be increased. Although if material is on the allergen list it doesn't mean it is banned. similarly an IFRA restricted material is not a banned material. It just means it can't be used as a non restricted material.

    My comment was a little tongue in cheek. I can't see any future but synthetics in perfume now. What with the restrictions and perceived allergies, not to mention the costs and time involved in distilling and extracting, all the Houses will succumb eventually.

    I had left the interview for weekend reading, perhaps unconsciously postponing the revelation of the horrid news of Bandit's upcoming reformulation. To be fair, oakmoss is not as essential to Bandit as it is to other chypres, and Futur's reformulation is good. But Guichard is known for Angelic stuff, so the risk is that he'll take the occasion to turn Bandit into an Angel child, as he did for Visa's reissue, which has nothing to do with the original.

    But let's forget about the bad stuff and concentrate on the funny things. I loved when Garces said that Asian people are delicate and like diluted stuff. This conjured the image of a screaming Chinese prisoner tied to a chair, surrounded by a group of Gulf Arabians performing their customary 15-spray nebulizations...

    If I ever go to East Asia, I'll make sure to bring along (unreformulated) Bandit, ELdO Rien, and a vial of Boadicea Complex for the special occasions...

    pluran, hopefully it has been read by many. Myself, I had nothing to add, so I just read in slack-jawed wonderment.

    One comment? Hardly seen anything more interesting on this site in a long time. All these phenomenal classic fragrances, the Piguet guy talks about reformulations, at least aware of the fact that IFRA wants to destroy perfumes. Aurelian Guichard is the perfumer for the house. Great to know all of it. Thanks.

    I found the talk of Bandit's reformulation (another one) depressing. When IFRA finally ban the mosses rather than just severely restricting them ( and it's going to happen soon) they will have destroyed classical perfumery forever. No more Chypres or Fougeres. No Jicky, no Mitsouko, no Cristalle, no No. 19, no Polo, no Chanel Pour Monsieur. I hope they are proud of themselves.
