Decline and Fall

Courtney Humphries has an excellent article in Wired about the devastation being wrought in the perfume industry through IFRA’s craven submission to the EU nanny state’s regulatory absolutists.

Thanks very much indeed for the link. It's an important article that needs to be read by anyone who considers themselves to be interested in perfume.

You're welcome!

Various people have spotlighted the shameful rollover of the IFRA/industry complex, but the accounts I've read all leave one question unanswered: Why did the industry not push back? Therein lies a tale for another time . . .

BTW I think Courtney Humphries is making a name for herself as a fragrance journalist.
