In January I gave a lecture on classic perfumes from 1950 to 2000. It was organized by Think Olio and hosted by ad agency Chandelier Creative at their SoHo headquarters, as a follow-up to a lecture that I’d given in November covering famous perfumes from 1890-1950. It was a wonderful opportunity to share my obsession with perfume history and its intersections with fashion, art, and popular culture, and I enjoyed every minute.

Chandelier followed up my lecture with an interview (also about iconic fragrances) that they posted on their website. I posted a link to Part 1 a few days ago; you can read Part 2 here.

I was joined by lots of smart and curious people who wanted to know more about iconic fragrances and their social context. We had fun, if I dare say so myself!

So, although these aren’t really new projects, I do seem to need a fresh website right now, and here we are.
