The recession has affected a lot of things – the real estate industry…the layoff rates…the foreclosure rates…the mental health and morale of American citizens…. But did you expect it to reach all the way into the fragrance industry?
It has, says CosmeticsDesign. These days, perfumes are much more likely to be made up of one or two components, making them simpler than they were in the good old days. In addition, female fragrances are getting woodier and muskier as scents previously associated with the cologne industry change sides. Apparently, not everything the recession touches with its death grip turns out bad.
