Financial Times Article on “Vintage” Perfumes


Financial Times magazine features an interesting article on “vintage” (or special harvest) fragrances, alluding to Hermes, Givenchy and L’Artisan Parfumeur as the companies that have embarked on this trend. The article (on pages 29-30) describes the new upcoming Givenchy Organza Harvest and L’Artisan Narcissus (to be launched later this year, although the exact date is not given). Thanks to MC for a link.

  • Lisa: Organza Harvest? I do hope organzas are not endangered, are organically farmed, and that the peasants plucking the organza from the organza shrubs are unionized. April 3, 2006 at 1:13am Reply

  • Laura: I like this idea, though I didn’t the think the actual l’Artisan orange blossom LE was memorable enough to be worth the hefty price tag. Still, I look forward to trying the narcissus one when it comes out. And the Givenchy ones, too. April 3, 2006 at 8:21am Reply

  • BoisdeJasmin: Lisa, yes, let’s hope for that. 🙂 April 3, 2006 at 1:25pm Reply

  • BoisdeJasmin: L, I feel much the same way. I really liked Fleur d’Oranger, but when I think of the price tag, its appeal is less strong. In the case of Givenchy, the increase in price is less shocking. It is only 20%. April 3, 2006 at 1:26pm Reply

  • BoisdeJasmin: Now, that is some reaction! 🙂 April 3, 2006 at 11:29pm Reply

  • risa: …narcissus? oh dear, oh dear me…
