Fashionista has an interesting interview … Jean Patou Perfumer Thomas Fontaine Describes the Pressures of Developing an Exclusive Fragrance Fontaine talks about the process of developing a fragrance for Patou, his work on Joy Forever, and some other news: “We’re relaunching old fragrances. This year we’re doing Vacances, L’Heure The rest, please…
Hey, it is time again for the Perfume Sample Fairy Godmother for April 2015. So here’s how Fairy Godmother works – this post will be open for the entire month of April 2015. I’ll start a new one at the beginning of May 2015. For those of you new or that need a reminder of how this works – in comments you can list one or two things that you are yearning for and can’t seem to get – a perfume sample is the easiest wish to grant for me. Or you can wish for a full bottle, decant, vintage perfume or discontinued perfume you can’t find. If someone has it and can help you out, they can reply to you in comments and then you can arrange to go offline through e-mail to work things out.
Please don’t post e-mails in comments unless you spoof them somehow, like this – patty at perfumeposse dawtcawm (spelling the dotcom at the end that way prevents robots from finding it as easily). Caveat Emptor and all that, don’t send people money, check out their references on MUA or Basenotes or the Facebook groups before you send something in a swap, if you wind up doing a swap. We have some amazing Fairy Godmothers that show up every month, granting wishes right and left. If you’ve been the recipient of some kindness, do give back when you can. I know people have gotten wishes granted, and every month they comb through the posts trying to find one or two people they can help out, and it just makes my heart happy. If it’s a gift, send away. I should note that it’s more likely that a Fairy Godmother will happen along if you are a fairly regular commenter on The Posse and people recognize your name. I’ll sometimes play Perfume Posse Fairy Godmother and go through the list and grant some perfume sample wishes. I’ll pick from ones that nobody has been able to help with – I’ll spin my random.org wheel – and send them The Precious.
So what is it that your heart desires? (pulling out wand from the back of the closet and blowing off an inch of dust)
