Somewhere Between Europe And Asia

This blog will be quiet for a little while, because I'll soon be rummaging through the wares on offer at Istanbul's Grand Bazaar. Wifi permitting, I might upload a few posts about any interesting fragrance finds.

In the meantime - and in keeping with the spirit of the orient - I'd like to take a moment to mourn the passing of YSL's Opium. Apparently the company's purchase by L'Oreal has brought about a change of the bottle and of the legendary formula. One of my strongest childhood memories is of my mum applying a few dabs of the potent stuff whilst sitting in her bedroom in the south of Iran. Sad to think that scent will be gone for good.
