    Default If You Were Royalty......

    If you were of the blood and a King of all the realm and keeper of the faith.lol What fragrance house would you give the ROYAL WARRANT to or your royal seal of approval.

    You can only choose one house and they will produce any scent that your highness desires.

    For me I would choose Fredrick Malle as he has a track record of getting the best people to make unique fragrances.

    Arise Sir Malle you have been choosen............lol

    Designer- I'm not sure whether the entire house of Armani, since sadly Armani has become increasingly commercial (and I don't mean economically sustainable/economically successful, I just mean extremely commonplace), but definitely Armani Eau pour Homme, more precisely the perfumer responsible for this masterpiece- introducing Roger Pellegrino- would get the ROYAL WARRANT (although I'm unsure, whether this important document was ever issued for only ONE fragrance, rather than the entire house)

    House? My Warrant? How small!

    As a BaseNoter King i would know better than to bestow a "house" with my Warrant, when i can "persuade" the master perfumeurs themselves into my exclusive service (servitude, in private). Mr Chong of Amouage for 2010, and perhaps Messieurs Polge and Sheldrake as well. Anything they require would be at my royal disposal.

    I would buy Serge Lutens, including his house in Marrakesh. And I would FORBID him to reformulate anything.

    I'd give it to Creed. They wouldn't even have to change their packaging ;-)..

    ROTFL! Hmmm...if I was a real royal, I would research all the "faux" perfume houses out there--making claims of royal or noble patronage.

    Guerlain. But on contingency that Jean-Paul Guerlain in partnership with Patricia de Nicolai were creating scents. Also, IFRA guidelines would be completely overruled for my own products.

    We are not amused at the notion that only one house would be our purveyor of fragrance. It is our decision that Houses of Guerlain, Luten, and Hermes shall care for our fragrance needs and we shall request Jean Claude Ellena to oversee personal fragrance creations. In this realm oakmoss will be included in those fragrances for which they were originally formulated. Mitsouko shall be considered our most favored fragrance.

    I remember reading somewhere that Prince Charles wears Green Irish Tweed. I guess that my choice would be Clive Christian especially if it meant that I would get them for free!

    Maison Guerlain
    - A spritz of Caron may be quite continental, but (a flacon of) Guerlain is a perfumisto's best friend...

    Shiseido! Especially considering that they technically preside over Serge Lutens...right?
    I'd force them to
    1: Make a stronger concentration of FdB and reintroduce it
    2: Make them reintroduce Nombre Noir
    3: Destroy Miel de Bois
    If fragrance has a gender, so does all art.

    Seeing as I AM Royal, it would have to go to Guerlain and they would have to release some real classics with totally authentic formulations.

    If we're considering houses, Histoires de Parfums' house style seems most suited to my tastes...

    But if we're considering perfumers, there are a few I would love as royal parfumers:
    Jacques Guerlain
    Jacques Polge
    Bertrand Duchafour
    C Sheldrake
    JC Ellena
    Dominique Ropion
    Calice Becker
    Francis Kurkdjian
    Maurice Roucel

    I would have to be Prince of Oman first to have total control over all olibanum bushes. (Some of the harvest will be traded againd ambers, oudh, Sandal and other rare goodies). I then would grant asylum to Serge Lutens (the person) and Pierre Montale so they can mix anything they would not be allowed to mix in France any longer. The only thing my perfumers must observe: to use chemicals only as means to enhance natural fragrances. (Amouage will use Coifan) as permanent consultant. Next to Sheldrakes, we shall offer a little palace to Francis K. equipped with everything he may need to turn his ideas into perfumes the world has not known before!

    EU/IFRA will end up regretting their huge errors made in the past years...
    ps.: BN members will get 20% on all Amouages - permantly.

    Re another post: if the Prince of Wales was really as devoted to environment as they say, GIT is not enough of a statement. He should sit down in his greenhouse and make beautiful natural perfumes for Camilla and his mother !
