Thread: Blog jump start

    Default Blog jump start

    My blog (linked in my signature) has always been very occasional, but I've now increased the pace and would welcome your distinguished presence and commentary to liven the place up. There will be a great bottle giveaway next week as well, which will hopefully cause some agitation. Drop on by, if you're in the mood.
    Thanks
    Tom

    the_good_life, I use your discussion of Creed and 4711 all the time whenever people start talking about the fake histories of 4711, D'Orsay and Creed. Granted hype and fluff are a part of perfume advertising, and there is no need to conjure up a false lineage of noble patrons and founders.

    Great blog!

    the_good_life, keep up the great work on the history.

    I like a little romance in the advertising, like the silliness of some Guerlain ads (like the fanciful tale around Jicky, and the poetry about the inspiration of Chamade).

    This is NOT, however, like stating you have been making perfumes since the 18th century, ignoring that most of your business was bespoke clothing for wealthy and noble patrons, holding out out a faux Prince of Wales coat of arms, or conjuring up a company in 1908 and having the nerve to print "1830" on your perfume boxes.

    Guerlain has a real lineage and does not have to make up claims to noble patrons.

    They can concentrate of the imagery of twilight (L'Heure Bleue), the beating of a heart in love (Chamade), or the red colour of the traditional hunting coat (Habit Rouge).
