I don't like posts like this.
I hate the politics of natural & botanical perfumery. Just fuckin' hate it. People who were once on the same artistic plane have begun to chuck each other out the windows to please someone else whose coattails are a bit longer, fit more people, move faster and spread more ego-borne bullshit.
No matter how many black holes the so-called outcasts fall into, talent, integrity & honesty will win out.
