Model, Stripper, Playboy Centerfold & Perfumer

I’m trying to think of any other perfumers I would like to see naked.

Still thinking.

Wait a sec, I have to turn my Jean-Claude Ellena bobblehead around. It’s making me self-conscious.

Still thinking.

OK, I’ve got one. Make that two. But obv I can’t tell you who they are.

Wow, that wasn’t easy. Fragrance evaluators is a different story. Several hot ones leap to mind. Why the difference?

Thought experiment for tomorrow: smell scientists I want to see naked.

Ha! Perfect post. :D

Love the pic, she seems so engrossed in the sniffing she has stuck her nose on the blotter. At least she holds it the right way up (this sounds naughty)

This post is so funny! I've been thinking about the ever-expanding niche bubble: everyone, it seems, is now a perfumer. Just pull up some juices and start stirring...

Well, like they used to say in the Teamsters locker room next to the fragrance compounding lab: "She got a good sense of blotter." And not afraid to get up close and personal.

Indeed. It is increasingly difficult to tell the poseurs from the noseurs.

Back in the day perfumers were working stiffs. I'd sit at the lunch table with them and we'd talk about the Jets game. Now everyone wants to be "the most interesting perfumer in the world."

Big niche in a little pond.

Dear Avery and Shera,

a few months ago I posted 2 articles called the Trouble with the Curve - there i exposed my ideas about the issue. Would love to see what you guys think of it. It was a direct message to a certain new niche brand of a certain self taught perfumer...but the hat fits many.
As to seeing people naked: is it because I mentioned the word commando in one of our emails???
