François Demachy says that "Cologne is the ultimate challenge in Perfumery, because it follows the strictest style codes. It is impossible to cheat. The olfactory signature must be clear and immediately recognizable. The quality of the fragrance is entirely dependent on the quality of the ingredients used, citrus ingredients in particular. So, of course, I sought out the most fragrant notes I could find."
The perfumer did not cheat, he simply lost the bet. Totally uninspired, unfinished and useless, this is not couture. French perfumers should learn one day to give up the cologne style and rethink their references.
