What do Canadians know?

The comments to this misinformed CBC article about ambergris just about sums up the attitude of Canadians to perfume and the art of perfumery... I'm still on the fence as to whether this means I should keep working harder, or just give up because of the lack of interest in the art. Argh...

That article sounds to me like they're trying to promote/sell their new substance, facts be damned. Even in grade school we learned that sperm whales were hunted for the spermaceti in their heads; ambergris was never mentioned.

I have a friend who knows I'm into perfume send me that article; I e-mailed her back that it was sensationalist and mis-leading. Definitely annoying to read something so inaccurate.

I get that feeling too form this article.

The article was brought to my attention by a friend as well - very misleading and uniformed.
