Developing a Fragrance for Patou and Relaunches



 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 Attendue and Colony. When I’m working on this formula, I have to make sure that I’m keeping the spirit of the fragrance…”

Relieved to hear Patou doesn't conduct consumer testing. I've never smelled the original Vacances, but of the reissues, it's the one I most want to try. Hope its journey to the US doesn't take forever...
