A rather long film about natural and synthetic perfume materials
There are so many conspiracy theories bouncing around the internet about how perfume contains some dreadful secret ingredients which are going to murder them in their beds. Usually they are started by brands who want to sell something new, and think that the way to do it is by spreading fear about their rivals' products.
It never seems to cross those people's minds that everyone who works in perfumery wants their customers to be safe and happy, and to live long, healthy lives. Nor do they bother asking if perfumers - who work with these materials every day - are mysteriously dropping like flies from unidentified ailments. (We aren't.) But yet, they spread silly stories about "chemicals" and "toxins" when we're all made of chemicals and toxins are made by plants.
So Arthur and I made a film full of facts, and some opinions too, which you might like to watch when you've for a spare moment or several.
