Clarification is required, as I have received queries and it is important to be transparent here.
My previous post about Serge Lutens may have wrongly given the impression that I am promoting his perfume and the company Shiseido. This was not my intention. I simply wanted to introduce everyone to Serge as an artist.
Shiseido does test its products on animals and for that reason I do not recommend this brand or any of its subsidiaries - including Serge Lutens' fragrances - on this blog. Hopefully one day the situation will change and Shiseido will start using more advanced, animal-friendly technologies in the production of its cosmetics.
