Perfumery is evolving. [W]e have seen great creations. We have seen a fantastic work of cooperation between chemists and perfumers, only hindered by the bureaucracy of “political” institutions that “brightly” warn us against many things. However, let me return to optimism by saying that this fantastic cooperation between chemists and perfumers has allowed us to make tangible so many beautiful fragrance creations.

These great fragrances—fruit of this creative cooperation between chemists, perfumers and, let me also say, evaluators—are like a subtle, delicate and fresh shadow in a burning environment that makes it possible for our souls to live in splendor without pretending that we reached the end of the path. This kind of oasis and its soft shadow bordered by an unfriendly environment, is blessed by the breeze that conveys the auratic breathing of the beguiling scents of jasmine sampac, champa, kewra, gul hina, rose, lily of the valley, violet, gardenia, magnolia, orris, freesia and frangipani.
