    Hmmmmmmmmmm. Professionally; selling perfume in general, launching brands, marketing, research, copywriting, the 'house' of XXXX (brand name soon to be revealed, which is a new brand-within-a-brand of perfumes I'm working on with a lovely team right now).

    As a perfume nerd - I guess the obvious choices - Guerlain, Lutens, Chanel, Dior... and Elizabeth Arden (only because I used to work for them ).

    I'm currently hoping to sample more of TDC's creations. I've tried the bergamot and it is indeed divine. I own Charmes & Feuilles and love it more each day.

    I own more than a handful of several lines but the two houses I seem to be best aquainted with are Guerlain (an effort on my part to get to know the history, helped along by the two very well informed ladies at the Guerlain counter here) and the other is Editions de Parfums by Frederic Malle.

    I was fortunate with Malle at the outset in receiving numerous samples (mercifully atomisers not 'dab tubes') and have since bought several and also spent time with the few that I would not personally wear. I was attracted to the way there are portraits of the creators at both counters here and have enjoyed looking into the 'back-story' of each perfume and also using that as a springboard into getting to know the work of the indiviudals concerned. For those interested, when Federic Malle was here a couple of months ago launching the candle range he mentioned that there is a scent coming from Carlos Benaim and I wonder if it might be an oriental or a gourmand given the two more impressionistic candles they developed together, Saint de Saints & Coffee Society? It would be interesting if an idea conceived for a candle were to evolve into a perfume. He also mentioned he 'continues to work' with Dominique Ropion so let's see what happens there . . .

    Also pretty well aquainted with Parfums de Nicolai, Amouage, L'Artisan, Goutal, Lutens and the earlier TDC releases.

    Fascinating Mr. Reasonable.
    I really would like to know what Frederic Malle and D Ropion are working on.

    Thank you, Nukapai, for the "insider" view of things. Of the most of one house that I own, it is probably the Guerlains. I like the fact that no (or very little) faux history is involved with the house. (Such as the naming of Jicky...)

    I've smelled the whole Frederic Malle line, many of which on my skin, wore the content of several vial samples, and bought one, which now I dislike
