    Neil my darling, let this be just one out of the many, many awards you will (and should) win. In this day and age when Guerlain and Caron have sunk to the level they have sunk to, pandering muck to the masses, you are a beacon of light and creativity. I feel you are what a parfumeur should be, in the way of the great innovators of a century ago. You create things that are not only au courant, but things that could be sent back in a time machine and adored 40, 50, even 90 years ago. You have realized a perfume does not have to be weird, nor funky, nor smell like a rotten pair of undies to be cutting edge; you give us beauty in a bottle, something great in its uniqueness and its simplicity...yet never regarded as simple.
    Bravo my love, bravo!!!!
