it turned out that the really, really expensive scents were far less
problematic than the mass-market ones. At the time it wasn't proven,
but was speculated that the expensive stink is derived from natural
substances, gently treated, while the cheapo stinkums are artificial,
perhaps petroleum based, and so on, often having components closely
related to pesticides and other nasties.


Going back to my prior post about natural fragrances, this is
something that has been understood for years by those of us involved
with homemade personal care products. The natural components are
expensive when compared to the synthetics. A good example is the
individual who mentioned Tea Rose perfume. I did a quick check and
found a number of such products on the market, all costing less that
$15.00 an ounce. This price means that they are all or mostly
synthetic. I could probably put a true rose oil in front of that
individual and she would not have the problems (at least physically
based problems). The catch is that the amount of Rose Otto essential
oil required for that one ounce bottle of perfume would cost over
$40.00. Now that's just for the oil, which is generally only 20% of
the volume in a perfume.

TW tie-in?

Like so many things in life, there is usually (though not always) a
direct connection between price and quality. While it is easy to
charge a high price and falsely claim high quality, it is very
difficult to charge a low price and actually produce high quality.
