It was too good to resist. When Brian of I Smell Therefore I Am (and the collaborator in the Tableau de Parfums series with Tauer) mentioned some interesting finds on Soft Youth Dew (an offshoot of the classic Lauder, experimented with during the 1970s) and its eventual progression (?) into Cinnabar, my antennae went right up, twitching with intense appreciation of the situation.
Now that Brian has composed an essay on what he found out and the saga of the two Lauders is under way, it's a good time to link through to his post and offer a public service announcement. This is a case for the books; reader, go visit.
