happy tax time kiddies!i hope uncle sam is good to you and gives you a big refund check to blow on perfumes (or silly frivolities like rent and groceries).if you’re one of those tea baggers, disregard this message and put on a pot of earl grey for me.
I would like to talk about bottles for a minute though.Perfume bottles are perhaps, these days or maybe they always have been, as important as the contents they house.Bottle collectors are a breed of their own and are happy to dump the contents of a beautiful flacon down the drain.Sometimes a brilliant bottle is enough to justify a purchase.
I am happy to admit that I am quite sensitive to smells.I would venture to guess that most people drawn into collecting or making fragrances probably are.This is both a blessing and a curse.While I may notice a particular scent more readily than someone else, I’m also more prone to be irritated by something you may not be aware of at all.I am speaking very generally here, of course.
Mymother has worn the same perfume for as long as I can remember.Actually, she’s worn the same perfume since 1984 – Yves Saint Laurent's Paris in the EDP. It might not sound like it makes a difference, but the EDP definitely has an edge up on the EDT.
Perfume lets me experience all sorts of things I don’t get to enjoy in real life.In fact, I’ve never been to any of the places in the Leisure Cruise collection.I remember Isaac Mizrahi, in the documentary ‘Unzipped’, saying that he didn’t have to go to Australia to do a collection about it – he could just watch a Flintstones episode about it.
I can’t think of a more famous perfume than Chanel nº5.Just look at its staying power – the stuff went on the market in 1922 and hasn’t been off it since.When Ernest Beaux mixed up the formula for Ms. Chanel, he did something quite novel at the time and over-dosed the scent with chemicals known as aldehydes.
we hope you brought your passports, cause smell bent has gone international! the new smellies have arrived in port and boy do they smell wonderful.
