      Good to read this. This can only be good news. This seems to mean to me that Designer Parfums takes Patou seriously and want to make decent quality fragrances. This, as opposed to Proctor and Gamble and conglomerates that just take....take....take.

      Well, time will tell what comes out of Patou. I'm hoping it is good.

      One nose; three houses. Busy fella! Hope he can uphold the Patou tradition of originality and exellence.

      Congratulations! Right then, get to work and bring back the Patou classics such as Moment Supreme and Que sais-je?... I want the same high quality as in the 1980s for their re-launch!

      Curious. Along with the brand, did P&G sell all the old Patou formulas to Designer Parfums?

      But what did the previous nose, Jean-Michel Duriez, at Jean Patou? Patou almost never releases new fragrances...

      Hope there's some substance to it. Few perfume houses had the quality of Jean Patou.
