During the past decade there have been many changes in the perfumery industry which are not so much due to the discovery and application of new raw materials, but rather to the astronomic increase in the cost of labour required to produce them. This is reflected more particularly in the flower industry, where the cost of collecting the blossoms delivered to the factories has gone up year after year, so much so that most flowers with the possible exception of Mimosa, have reached a cost price which has compelled the perfumer to either reduce his purchases of absolutes and concretes, or alternatively to substitute them from a cheaper source, or even to discontinue their use. This development raises an important and almost insoluble problem for the perfumer, who is faced with the necessity of trying to keep unchanged the bouquet of his fragrances, and moreover, to ensure no loss of strength and diffusiveness. Of course, this problem applies more especially to the adjustment of formulae for established perfumes, because in every new creation the present high cost of raw materials receives imperative con- sideration before the formula is approved.
Born a compulsive liar, John overcame his disability whilst shipwrecked on a desert island in the 1970s. Upon his triumphant return to blighty he was awarded a medal, given one of those flowery necklace things you get in Hawaii and reclaimed his position as head of international development for Fat Frank's Bacon Butty Shop & Frothy Coffee Emporium. Now, after a glittering career in a series of shit jobs, John Spacey has made the cynical decision to ask people to pay him to read stuff that he's already given away for free on the interweb.
