Oh where, oh where, has our perfumista gone?


Cape Lookout, August 2010


Just a quick word, Dear Reader, to assuage any lingering doubts you have.  I am coming back.  My new laptop arrives on Wednesday, allowing me to regularly write again.  I have so many perfume-y things to tell you!   It just may take a few more days.  Thanks for your patience, and I promise that in exchange I'll have hilarious and wonderful stories and even a drawing to make it up to you.

Until then, I'll leave you with two things -- a couple of photos from my recent trip to the beach, and the following horoscope, which was written for Pisces (which I am) a week or two ago by Free Will Astrology's Rob Brezsny. It is a LOL and a half!
Allure magazine sought out Luca Turin and Tania Sanchez, the women who wrote the book Perfumes: The A to Z Guide. "What are the sexiest-smelling perfumes of all time?" they asked. Turin and Sanchez said Chinatown was at the top of their list. Their explanation: "If wearing Opium is like walking around with a bullhorn shouting, 'Come and get it!', Chinatown is like discreetly whispering the same thing." The Chinatown approach is what I recommend for you in the coming weeks, Pisces.
Chinatown!?!  First of all, Bond No. 9 has some waaaaay nicer scents.

Secondly, I'd be more inclined to listen to you if you had not INCORRECTLY IDENTIFIED Luca Turin AS A WOMAN.

Lastly, and more philosophically:  forget it, Astrology man.  I'm going with Opium -- it's go big or go home in my world.

See you in a few days, dear readers!
