WATCH Ep 2 of Roja Dove’s Tour of Harrods' Perfume Diaries Exhibition!

06 September 2010

You may recall that last week, we started showing you our series of videos that we had filmed with perfume god Roja Dove as he gave us a guided tour of Harrods’ incredible new fragrance exhibition The Perfume Diaries.

Today, we give you the next instalment of his ultimate history of perfume - the 1900s , the decade when the fragrance houses began to realise, as perfume legend Francois Coty said; ‘a perfume needs to attract the eye as well as the nose’ – enter jewellery designer Rene Lalique and whole new era of beautiful perfume bottles.

But we’ll let the exhibition’s curator himself explain…

[oh, and once again we feel we should warn about the erm, 'reportage' style camerawork, but do stick with it, because Roja is raaather fascinating).
