Marian Bendeth, fragrance expert, consultant and contributor to Bois de Jasmin (please see her Signature Scent article) is taking us on a fascinating journey in her recent two part piece on the excellent perfume-dedicated website Basenotes. Interview with Christophs offers a glimpse into mindset of Christophe Laudamiel and Christoph Hornetz, while The Smell of Flesh, Life and Death presents Marian’s thoughts on Thierry Mugler’s Le Parfum Coffret. I read both pieces a few times, and I know that I will return to them again and again.
For my take on Thierry Mugler Le Parfum Coffret, please see the article I published in November. Photo of Christoph Hornetz (left) and Christophe Laudamiel (left) is courtesy of Marian Bendeth.
