Lazy weekend poll ~ stepping back from the edge, episode 6

Crater Lake

It’s our sixth annual ‘stepping back’ poll: can this group of shameless enablers help each other not buy perfume? Let’s find out.

Name a perfume you’ve been itching to buy but suspect you might not need, and tell us why you think it might not really be a good use of your money. Maybe everyone will talk you out of it. Or, maybe not so much.

If you participated in this poll last year, tell us if you ended up buying the fragrance anyway…

Absolutely objectionable

And that’s one of the things for which I’m extremely grateful to Arden/Revlon [Ed note: the holder of the fragrance license for John Varvatos]. They use me as part of their brand, and it’s a very open and well-known thing. It’s basically the only brand in international perfumery that has used only one perfumer. And that has become part of its DNA. John Varvatos comes to me and says, “What’s next, Rod?” There are a couple of brands out there that have very officially asked for the perfumer not to be mentioned. I find that absolutely objectionable and anti-ethical and very ungrateful. I’m saying it on record. They know who they are.

— Perfumer Rodrigo Flores-Roux talks to Persolaise about brands that refuse to acknowledge their perfumers. And about all sorts of other things — read more at "Your Claims Have To Be Honest" - An Interview With Rodrigo Flores-Roux.
