    Nice! So interesting to read what a perfumer has to say about the process and the industry. I ate it up. :-)

    I really like the annotated style of reporting here—you not only recount the thoughtful questions and illuminating answers but also describe the contextual nuances of the interaction (e.g., head shaking, moments of silence, the company representative's nods of approval, etc.). These details make for a richer and more honest and revealing story. Thank you.

    .. just to add to the praise and to what mnaonbn mentioned; indeed this was a very nice short story not just another interview. Fabrice Pellegrin sounds like a sincere and down to earth person, the kind that is nice to encounter now and then in perfumery. Reading this short story I thought that there were nuances distinguishing a master perfumer from wannabes. I would like to read more stories like this. Thank you Persolaise!

    I would love to show this to the sales assistants in Diptyque boutiques who insist until they're blue in the face that all their scents are 100% natural.

    Great interview!

    I sense another book coming. Interviews with Perfumers. Off you go!

    Hi everyone, thanks for all the positive comments. Much appreciated :-)

    Nukapai, I love your idea... but I wonder if many other people would... And as for the Diptyque SAs... maybe you should show them this article next time.
