  1. Why don't scent supermarkets stink?

    Something bizarre happened in a scent supermarket the other day. I was in there checking something out when two guys came in and one of them started spraying himself heavily with Bleu de Chanel.

  5. The Birth of a Legend

    The story is simple and I personally know all the details. It happened at Chiris, where my father was lab manager.
    The client already knew the company director, they had met on the Côte d’Azur where he had tried to convince her to launch a perfume.
    She was hostile to the idea but agreed to visit his factory.
    In the creation laboratory, she was seduced by the flacons of rare essences. The chief perfumer let her smell them and told her how a perfume is made with such materials. ...
