It is like saying "a painting is a blend of colours" and "music is a mixture of sounds".
Which of course is true, but only on a very superficial level. But just like painting and music,
perfume must have life and feeling. There is a synergy in the mixture of materials that tells a story or
maybe reflects personality and character. Yes, a perfume is a picture painted
in smells and has notes and tones like music and art.
Luca Bossi believed that perfumery is a living art.
