I reckon nearly all UK-based perfume-lovers are aware of London's Les Senteurs, which is why I haven't felt it necessary to sing the shop's praises. But just in case there are still a few people out there who haven't made their way to Elizabeth Street (or, indeed, browsed the shop's comprehensive website), this is a timely opportunity to state that stepping into the place is like walking into the most welcoming little perfume world where the staff couldn't be more helpful and the goods on offer couldn't be more enticing. Most importantly, there isn't the faintest whiff of pushiness in the air and you're allowed plenty of time to spray on blotters, make notes and think.
It is thanks to Les Senteurs that I'm able to offer a sample of Like This to one lucky Persolaise reader. If you'd like to enter the draw, please leave a comment on this post.
