I wonder if anyone's talked about the exoticising rhetoric that's not uncommon among indie perfume retailers? I think that in the perfumers' cases it's probably fueled more by their general tendencies to emphasize the romantic and mysterious elements in everything, rather than any deliberate Othering, but I see how it could be off-putting to some people who are already sick of their culture being depicted as the Exotic Whatever.
