    Ah it also dispels the myth that Bois Noir was cancelled due to bad sales. It was because they cancelled the menswear line..or rather renamed due to marketing purposes..

    interesting read!

    Great link! Man, I come away from that interview blaming the American market for Bleu's lack of balls. I think it's clear that Polge would be doing something more our style if he had the choice. Clearly it's the economy. Chanel needs a new frag that sells in places that barely like fragrance. And the relationship of cultural fragrance preferences to "before" or "after" is very apt. Though he left out Japan, where the answer would be "both".

    I am DEFINITELY buying a bottle of Égoïste now! It's Polge's pride and joy!

    That Egoiste commercial is one of the best one of all time.

    That's just sad. But I suppose if you have this mega-ton ship you've got to keep it afloat somehow. Thanks for posting the link, castorpollux. I enjoyed the read.
