    Default If you were God of perfumery for just one day...

    What would you decide to do?

    I would make Guerlain's (for men) just a tad less syrupy/sweet. I would also produce a Kouros pure perfume oil.

    Hehe, that one is hard to beat. I'd have any natural they overregulate growing out of their ears and noses.
    Also, a number of excessively popular synthetics would turn into all-natural skunk juice.
    On a positive note, the Sahara would suddenly be flush with sandalwood forests housing musk deer and civet cats, the coastline would be made of pure ambergris.

    Get myself, all Basenoters and all of my friends and people close to me unlimited supplies of their fave frags

    After that, revert any reformulation of frag classics and make sure that, even after I lost my superpowers the next day, the original formulation is completely immune against any reverting and thus stays vintage

    And, of course, make sure that the "compliment getting" frags are no empty promise any loner, in fact, that almost any frag one might put on will have more immediate effects than any Hai Karate commercial would dream about

    Lastly, make sure that at least for this one day, all frags manufactured, bottled and sold during this day come in bottles of purest crystal and with caps made of the utmost precious metal

    I'd make the first commandment: "Thou shalt not overapply"
    It is known that there are an infinite number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near nothing as makes no odds, so the average population of all the planets in the Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that the population of the whole Universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely products of a deranged imagination.

    I would get rid of that heavy, cloying, stuffy powder note found in most old English frags and replace it with something more subtle. I don't know what yet. I'll know when I get my super powers.

    I'll bestow the gift of perfume appreciation on every single human so nobody would ever call perfume collecting 'gay' and nobody will have to put up with the reformulations and the crap mass market fragrances that design houses keep producing and marketing at ridiculously exorbitant prices.

    I would transform the goal of most perfume houses from monetary profit to making the world smell better and appreciating it! That would automatically reduce the costs of everything, and put the focus on artistic development and craftsmanship.

    In the game Atelier Iris: Azoth of Desitiny there are mana that control the elements of the world. Basic ones are wood, water, fire, air... and there's specialties likemetal, poison... and the senses illusion and sound elements. I was surprised to have a fragrance mana appear in the game.

    Her name is Aroma and is close to being a perfume god.

    In the morning I would instantly re-introduce Patou pour Homme, Jacques Fath´s Iris Gris, Coty´s Chypre and Guerlain´s Djedi. After that, I would meet some great perfumers like Patricia de Nicolai, Bertrand Duchaufour, Andy Tauer and Vero Kern for lunch and in the afternoon I would recreate all those fragrances damaged by the IFRA, and label them "UNESCO World Heritage". Being comfortable with my day´s work I would open a bottle "Amarone" in the evening and enjoy this wonderful wine and my wonderful perfumes!
