This is just a short entry to wish you all a great weekend and remind you that you've got until Sunday night (UK time) to enter the draw for a sample of any one of the eight SoOud perfumes.
If all goes according to plan, Sunday will also see the publication of a (fairly long!) post in which I attempt to get to grips with the notion of an objective assessment of a perfume's merits. Come back then and share your own thoughts on the subject.
Some of you may also be interested to learn that in the next few weeks I hope to upload reviews of several fragrances from Dior's new La Collection range as well as L'Artisan Parfumeur's Traversée Du Bosphore and Guerlain's two Arsène Lupin scents. And I still need to write a bit more about Paris!
As far as my personal perfumery is concerned, I'm pleased to be able to say that this week I've managed to have several productive sessions with my lotions and potions. My current idea - essentially based around the concept of a particular place - is slowly coming along, but as I think I've mentioned before, I now need to increase the number of planes on which it operates... which involves much more than just chucking a whole load of spices into the stew.
Oh and finally - just to end on a gloriously prosaic note - the date for the two-week destruction (and, fingers crossed, resurrection) of the bathroom has been set... and it's only a few weeks away. How many sprays of Tauer do you think I'll need to mask the odour of unwashed Persolaise...?
Have a wonderful weekend, everybody.
