The Smelly Vagabond is hosting a conversation on credibility and perfume writing with reference to Persolaise’s article on the same topic. There are some great comments from some great people. I thought I would add to the conversation with this piece that I prepared for The Smelly Vagabond’s site. This piece is really a comment that was too long to post as a comment.
Futher Reading on this topic is at:
