There’s yet another fascinating article in The Australian dedicated to the house of Chanel, its resident perfumer Jacques Polge, its deputy perfumer Christopher Sheldrake (also the nose behind most Serge Lutens creations), and the new Les Exclusifs. “The creators at Chanel have complete freedom, whether it’s Karl Lagerfeld in fashion or Jacques Polge in the fragrance world, Sheldrake says. “The creation leads the business, not marketing, so there is never the likelihood that we are going to come up with a compromise”. I don’t know about you but I’ll most likely rip out my hair if Les Exclusifs disappoint.
P.S. It looks like I’ve come down with a head cold, and my nose is barely functioning. When all is clear again, reviews of the Etat Libre d’Orange fragrances will follow.
