  1. I am generally quite anti-celebrity fragrances. (Using celebrity as a marketing tool for something so incredibly personal as fragrance just seems so sad). I believe niche fragrance houses are the ones who really respect the "essence" of wearing perfume.

    However. From a marketing viewpoint, I think an Annika fragrance is genius. There's a huge, generally untapped demographic for this celeb.

    I live in Miami and wish that I was going to be in town this weekend to meet her. (I don't like celeb fragrances...but I love golf!!!) too too bad.

  2. Oops, sorry, I missed your comment for some reason.

    As you can see, I have no issues with celebrity fragrances on this blog :) I think it's a sort of sociological phenomenon that it is interesting to record and observe. I don't know where it leads us, but it is there.

    I agree in general with your statement about niche perfume houses, but only in general and up to a point. In reality there are a number of very good and creative fragrances in the mainstream market as well. Niche perfumers have studied the classics that were released in the mainstream market, perhaps at a time, granted, when perfume brands operated more like today's niche perfumeries. I think it's a complex and evolving topic and I would tend to privilege a case-by-case approach personally although I think some generalizations are possible.
