Bertrand Duchaufour Is Bugging Me
Bertrand Duchaufour is popping up everywhere. Now, according to Lucky Scent, he's the perfumer behind Ann Gerard perfumes.
I'll openly admit to being pissed that Frapin 1697 - what I perceived as a great Duchaufour masterpiece before I put it on my skin - fizzled out like a firecracker that never ignites. Dud City.
Perfume should never be better on paper than on skin.
Note to BD: Just because you can, doesn't always mean you should. Stop whoring yourself and churning out one just-above-average perfume after another for every perfume house or designer that will contract with you. Take a tip from Jean Claude Ellena, arguably the greatest perfumer of all time, and show a little restraint. Maybe the quality of your perfumes will improve.
Wow, little miss cranky pants feels better now.
