    Default Guess which Basenoter has bought a perfume house, and which one?

    A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of meeting one of the Basenotes members over breakfast. He told me that he had bought a perfume house!

    Anyone care to guess who, and which house? I'll add more clues as time goes by....

    I have no idea, who is it? Why the tease? Just tell us who and which one. I am sure all of basenotes members will be willing to support the effortss of another member!

    These are my wild eyed "off the wall guesses" of potential business partnerships in the works:

    1) Cairomerta has been very active in supporting the distribution of Xerjoff perfumes. It wouldn't surprise me if he acquired this brand to help them grow and compete. Thats just purely a guess.

    2) Hednic seems to invest in enough inventory so that he might as well purchase the whole company of a brand he likes a lot. Hednic might buy Parfums d' Marly or M. Micallef as these seem like brands he would enjoy developing.

    3) Jack Hunter (sorry for mistype) has been such a loyal supporter of Murdock's fragrances that it would surprise me if he acquired this brand with the support of a venture capital offering to fund expansion of the retail side of their business to the U.S.A., Austrailia, New Zealand and Europe.

    My wild guess would be Chris Bartlett who already has his own range of fragrances. But which house, that's a mystery.


    I myself did make a offer to Murdock to buy their shops but I was told politely to take a hike.lol

    Apart from Chris Bartlett, either Kerosene or Michael Storer (as they both had and most likely still have Basenotes accounts).

    With all the disturbing Montale talk I believe a consortium lead by Pierre Hednic & Pierre dougczar could set matters right to get that house back on track.

    I like Jack Hunter leading Murdock's presence stateside with help from FSUGRAD being the point man in the America's.

    Darviant & Alfarom taking over the prestigious O'driu perhaps?

    It's not a member that previously was running a house, which rules out people like pkiler, ChrisBartlett, kerosene, smellbent etc

    Interesting thread! I really look forward to learning the answers. Preferably soon. Patience is vastly overrated.

    Really, Jack buying Murdock and Hednic buying... well just about anyone... are some great ones and they wouldn't surprise me in the slightest. TN Blue - Pierre Hednic does actually suite him very well

    But my vote goes to Christ Bartlett, although I am really at a loss as to what company has been bought.

    Come on Grant, suspense is killing us here!!

    Hednic's ruled out imho - if he buys it won't be just 1 house...But if he did, i think he'll start with Marc De La Morandiere (Genghis Khan fame)...

    Deadidol & Slumberhouse seems to be made for each other - however, knowing Josh, I think he wouldn't sell it; not even a minute part of it.

    Ok, now i'm officially out of guesses...

    I don't know who but would hope somebody bought Montale and straightens out that whole mess.

    OK, my guess is hednic buys Montale and as an act of kindness sends me a bottle od Kabul Oud because I have asked him ahout it ao many times.

    This is like perfumery Cluedo!

    Surely it must be a smaller house? If it was a large house, we probably would have heard before now? My gut instinct says Dougczar. Who he bought? I don't know.

    PalmBeach

    I don't know why, but whenever I think of the business side of fragrance and basenoters, he's the name that comes to mind first.

    My original guess was hednic, but something tells me it wasn't him.


    This is very interesting though. I can't wait to find out who it is.

    Alfarom, perhaps. I always enjoy his reviews.

    It is hard really to judge a persons net worth by their fragrance collection except maybe Hedonic so that's another fair guess.

    Hednic-Montale, first guess before seeing these responses.

    Cairomerta-Xerjoff, second guess.

    Those would be my guesses if I didn't already know that PEARL and Hedonist222 bought Serge Lutens, I wish you all the best as well, we've made it.
