The Culture of Fragrance
Take note: When someone insists that a perfume has universal appeal, they are selling you a line. And probably a perfume. The truth is our scent preferences are too emotionally charged and deeply rooted to win favor across the board. When we interviewed fashion and beauty experts from around the world, we discovered that fragrance is pretty heady stuff, with potent connections to spirituality, geography, and history.

"Ethiopia has many tribes, with different languages and traditions. I think the one thing that we share absolutely in common is fragrance. Everyone in Ethiopia burns frankincense. I identify so strongly with it that I'm drawn to perfumes with woodsy, earthy notes. I love Tom Ford Sahara Noir. I have three bottles because I don't want to run out. [Editor's note: A wise move - the fragrance was recently discontinued.] When I travel to Ethiopia three times a year, I always bring frankincense home with me. But it's never enough."
