May PM you about this down the road: I've got three new swaps coming to me at the moment; any more and they'll get trampled underfoot.

Trying out SergeLutens Serge Noir today. After 3 days of Fumerie Torque I can officially categorize it as a letdown.
Strangely, L'Artisan hasn't really taken hold of me. Dzing didn't grab me, Navigateur left me cold, and Patchouli Patch was too close to warm Dr. Pepper for me to wear it and not feel sticky.
But, as for the industry: sales are falling, but the larger houses seem to be able to weather the tide. Out of curiosity I pulled annual reports of a number of firms (Lauder, LVMH, Arden, Shiseido) - they all made some money in fragrance in 08 but not a ton.
