What is your pet peeve when it comes to perfume?
Is there anything in Perfumeland that irks you?
Are there certain fragrances, houses or marketing techniques that set your teeth on edge?
Is there something about the world of perfume that bothers you? Irritates you? Makes you angry?
What I hate when it comes to the world of perfume these days is the massive overload of products. Too many launches, too little quality, creativity and character in the juice hiding behind a wall of marketing, publicity and business strategy.
Endless trends mindlessly copied (I need only three letters: oud), indistinguishable juice as characterless, bland and unidividual as a Borg drone (Hey there, fellow Startrek Fans!), naked ladies smiling vacantly next to a bottle bearing a very long, but utterly senseless name and finally there is the third flanker of a flanker of a flanker.
Maybe not a very positive way to start the week, but a little rant can be good for the soul. So please share yours!
What are your fragrant grievances?
