    YOU WANT TO HEAR THE TRUTH AND HONEST OPINION ABOUT THE FRAGRANCE INDUSTRY. IT IS THE MOST DIFFICULT BUSINESS TO GET INTO, PEOPLE WILL TELL YOU ANYTHING TO MAKE YOU BUY WORTHLESS INFO. I KNOW BECAUSE I HAVE GONE THRU FOT THE PAST 20 YEARS. HOWEVER AFTER LOOSING THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS, WE HAVE OUR OWN BRAND OF PERFUMES. NOW I KNOW WHAT I WOULD HAVE KNOWN I WOULD HAVE TAKEN SHORTCUT AND SAVED ALL THE MONEY I LOST. WITH MY WAY IT WILL TAKE YOU ONLY 5 YRS TO MAKE IT. WRITE TO ME ONLY IF YOU ARE SERIOUS.
