I can understand that Russian and German perfumers are not understood in New York at MAD (The Art of Scent Catalogue), that Jacques, Ernest and Edmond are not happy, or that American School in perfumes starts around Clinique in 1971, but the perfumers of her Majesty???? That's a surprise in the year of the Jubilee.
I wrote on many occasions about the British art of perfumes since the XVIIIth century and I know a man very sad in this moment. His name is Septimus Piesse (1820-1882) author of "The art of perfumery" and many things.
Sic transit gloria mundi ... per-fumum.
Perfume as an art starts with many, many, many readings, a solid base because top notes go like champagne.
