Archivist's note

There are two interviews of Annette Green about the Fragrance Foundation. The first one was done in 1993, likely by Estelle Ellis, while the other was done by Carol Poll. The second was likely meant to be a part of a separate series of interviews on the Fragrance Foundation, however no additional interviews conducted by Carol Poll seem to exist for it, so it has been added to the original series conducted in 1993.
