This is a subject that has been troubling me. I have always been a straight-down-the-line Chanel girl: Allure by day, Coco by night. I scoffed at a former colleague, a self-confessed perfume slut, who agonised daily over which perfume to wear. Life’s too short, I told her. Lots of perfumes is like lots of handbags – it just complicates matters.
