    Default Arnault beats Bill Gates to second richest in world

    Very clearly a case for corn flakes and classics

    Very interesting, thank you
    FYI: I spray all fragrances on clothing, never on skin.

    Was just a matter of time.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    ....and he did it with perfume. Partly, anyway.

    I recently watched a two-part documentary about the house of Dior and its transition to a new director of couture, whose name I have already forgotten... Maria Something Italian.

    Arnault appeared in it a few times, always appearing to descend into the working throngs from some celestial height, always with a very chilly hauteur, and was spoken about in hushed tones. The one or two times he spoke on camera he seemed positively constipated, uncomfortable and not the least bit happy.

    Guess they are going to have to edit that article and cover since it says he's the third richest behind Gates and Bezo.

    After Bill Gates donated....35 BILLION to charity.

    Bill Gates would always be number 1 on the list but for his great charitable initiatives.

    This is the feeling I picked up from the article -- he is obsessed by time as though there wasn't enough of it ---- a very driven person but cold and detached and a bit paranoid.

    Maybe he had. Chances are he hasn’t or we’d have heard of it by now. He’s not exactly the type who shuns the spotlight.

    Not a hater, but you can't take it with you. Hope he's using it to donate to good charities.
