Thinking Of India + Grossmith Sample Set Winner

Now that the weather's getting colder, my mind seems to keep getting drawn back to thoughts of the summer in Mumbai: raucous rain, sweltering heat and, of course, the perfumers of Muhammed Ali Road. With their soft-spoken geniality, they seem a galaxy away from the cybernetically-smiling, bottle-wielding battle clones of Boots and Debenhams, itching to jump on you with a spray of the latest 'pour hhhhhommme'. Maybe someone should open a niche store in the UK based on the 'Indian model': lots of comfortable chairs, plenty of uncluttered surfaces for blotters, books, pens etc, and sales assistant who understand that the amount of time and space they give their customers is directly proportional to the likelihood of making a sale. Wishful thinking...

But let's not start the week on a miserable note. How about putting a smile on someone's face?

Thanks very much indeed to everyone who entered last week's draw for the sample set from Grossmith. I'm pleased to announce that the winner is:


Congratulations! Please send your postal address as soon as possible to persolaise at gmail dot com so that I can get the samples off to you.



  1. I love your "Indian Model"- sounds especially comfy in all this Alpine ice and slush. Wrote to you today,

  2. M, I couldn't agree more. When was the last time you stepped into a perfumery that could be described with the word 'comfy'?
