What is your vision of the future of fragrance?
“The fate of fragrance lies in the hands of its creators and guardians. A prosperous future is dependent upon the courage, savoir-faire and integrity of those authoring the next chapters. The authors can choose to prolong the ills of commoditization, and succumb to the frenetic pace of artificial newness. Or they can choose to celebrate the enchantment, authenticity, and beauty of craftsmanship. The former would serve to repeat the present, while the latter would serve to rebirth the lost art of fragrance.”
