|An empty crib at Maison Persolaise|
Still, I mustn't complain. As always, the Christmas break provided a welcome opportunity to relax a little bit, take stock of the last year and think about the future, particularly in relation to this blog and my overall perfume-oriented plans.
In order to make the transition to post-holiday existence a little easier, I've decided to wear a new perfume today in preparation for a review. My choice is Bertrand Duchaufour's much-lauded Traversée Du Bosphore for L'Artisan Parfumeur. Perhaps its sweetness will cheer me up over the course of what will no doubt be a pretty tiring day.
