    Thumbs up Re: Article in Smithsonian mag on Celine Ellena

    Mike, you've done it again. What a wonderful piece - thanks so much.

    LOVE her remark that our earliest fragrance searches are for God - and that you have to have a "bad" character to be a parfumeur....and that we Americans are more "romantic" (ingenuous?) than the French...

    ...enjoyed this tremendously!

    Mike,

    Either you have a lot of time on your hands at work, or you're an excellent researcher, or maybe both?

    At any rate, thanks for the great articles you post. Keep up the good work.
