Rich & Famous
Artist, financier, politician, industrialist, philanthropist, lover, and above all—parfumeur—François Coty revolutionized the fragrance industry during the first thirty years of the twentieth century. The genius visionary behind such legendary scents as Chypre and La Rose Jacqueminot, François Coty rose to extraordinary fame and fortune during his lifetime, following his extraordinary “nose” to exalt women with his innovative luxury products.
With the help of personal letters, his contemporary journals, never-before-published photos, and numerous quotes from Toole’s personal correspondence, author Joel L. Fletcher recalls his friendship with Toole—known as Ken—during the early 1960s.
