“A really good perfume needs to mature, to macerate and the more ingredients you use the longer it needs… it’s a little like bringing a big bunch of people together and they all have to get to know each other before you’re quite sure it’s all going to work out: it can be a small party or a Wembley Stadium full of people.”
