  4. Re: Addicted: Wearing Whatever I Damn Well Please

    Thank you for a wonderful article! I myself pay no attention to the way a scent is marketed, and thoroughly enjoy wearing "men's" as well as "women's" scents.

  8. Re: How Shiseido succeeded in Europe (SERGE LUTENS

    Thank you for a very interesting article. Even though it is company promotion, it is informative nevertheless.
    An unusual success story. There must be a lesson to be learned in there somewhere.

  12. Re: Update on reformulation of Mitsouko and Shalim

    Yes, it's true. I too read about this in Luca's blog and I wrote to Guerlain. My email bounced back because the mailbox of the recipient was full!! They must have been flooded with complaints.

    I hate to say it, but this is most probably a matter of individual taste. For me, Mitsouko is the perfect great-for-all-occassions scent, but I know that many other people can only wear it in the...
