Goon gambit backfires as the perfume blogosphere rallies to defend Coifan’s freedom of speech. (Par parenthèse, avocats, it’s not like you can’t dig up Coifan’s now-deleted posts from the Google cache in about 15 seconds.)
Meanwhile the knuckleheads at Guerlain end up generating even more unkind commentary about their products and business practices. Here’s a taste from The Non-Blonde:
Guerlain and its owner, LVMH, have been getting a lot of well-deserved flack for destroying the wonderful tradition of the once family-owned house. They’ve been churning one mass-market scent after another in tastelessly expensive packaging that seem aimed at a very specific crowd, from the Russian mob to oil nobility.Ouch.
