    Exactly Where I Should Be


    Oh Mona is a beautiful looking lady and talented. :) Thanks for this article. Sad her original perfumes have been discontinued though. Very interesting to hear her thoughts re. IFRA - from a perfumer's perspective.

    Great interview, and what a sympathetic person she is, now I'm even more happy how much I like her perfumes. I loved what she said about blogs and critics. Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks. No big deal, but so far I haven't perceived any signs of Roudnitska in these compositions. I think Pierre Bourdon was the only true protégé of Edmond Roudnitska.

    I'm so thankful you asked her the last question. It's a very important question for us all to know. IFRA, UGH. :angry:
