"Compared to other things I do, creating perfumes is relatively painless. Sometimes you kill yourself for designs, a shirt that's gone in a season and then the collection is over and you have to think of something new. There's something nice about the permanence of fragrance. Think how great the guy who developed Opium must feel -- it's still great, it's still out there, it's still going."
Note: Jean-Louis Sieuzac created Opium in 1977.
