This article from the July issue of the New Statesman argues that perfume is the form that all art aspires, its ephemeral nature forging a link between "materialism and free will." While I don't necessarily agree with the thesis presented, it is nonetheless an interesting read.
Seek not the favor of the multitude; it is seldom got by honest and lawful means. But seek the testimony of few; and number not voices, but weigh them. - Immanuel Kant
"The House of Creed is even more stable [than Guerlain]. Founded in London in 1760, it relocated to Paris in the 1850s, and remains family-owned today. One can as easily wear Fleurs de Bulgarie, created by Henry Creed in 1845, as Neroli Sauvage, created by Olivier Creed in 1994."
He really knows his stuff ! LOL.
