    That was the best interview I've read in a long while. I love the story about the daffodil oil.

    Interesting interview, thank you Eric!
    Of course we are getting a bit sceptical these days.
    So I try not think how Louis Vuitton could have inspired this if he wanted to.

    Lovely interview. So now, Thierry Wasser is carrying the torch. He seems quite capable. But I think his job is getting harder than ever before- to create something memorable and also something that sells. Especially in this new era where he has to compete doubly hard for Guerlain to rise above the desiger and niche market as well.

    A great interview. Makes me wish Guerlain Homme smelled better to my nose, but I still think it's utterly superfluous.

    Yeah but you think heritage is crap .

    I was interested to read how GH was originally farmed out and then came back "in house" to a certain extent. I am slightly dubious about the whole ringing up JPG and moving from there to house perfumer and don't we get on brilliantly thing.

    Sad story about JPGs granpa..

    So according to Wasser, Guerlain is first and foremost about sourcing the best natural/raw materials, and then learning about 19th century techniques suchs as tinctures and infusion-methods....hmmmmm.....sounds oddly familiar..

    I'm just hoping there's no emerging controversy about dates of any Guerlains. I'm really enjoying being able to talk about all my scents!

    Thanks to you eric for posting the link. These guys are really not saying much of anything concrete it's a real puff piece IMO.

    I like how Wasser keeps popping up in these staged interviews, yet when it comes to actual Guerlain frag announcement he rarely gets a mention ...
