“The biggest successes on the market are all linked by quality,” Fremont continues. “If you take Beautiful by Estée Lauder, for a very long time it was the most expensive fragrance oil and it stayed at number one [for years], and it’s still a top-selling fragrance. I believe that at the end of the day consumers see the quality of the fragrance. Fragrance is such an intimate product, something you put on your skin; you wear a fragrance the same way you wear a dress. If you make a product that [consumers] like, they will buy it again and again. To do that, quality is key.”

This feature was originally published in the September 2010 issue of Perfumer & Flavorist magazine. The P&F version, “Comparing Notes: Quality is Key,” contains additional technical information on specific ingredients.
