You know what they say about waiting for buses? Well, I think the adage could probably be applied to my appointments diary for the week beginning 11th April. After a recent dearth of perfume events, I'm about to go into headless chicken mode. Not that I'm complaining for one moment! After all, it isn't every day that one gets to meet Francis Kurkdjian, the man who gave us Fleur Du Male and the ever-so-naughty Absolue Pour Le Soir.
After my evening with him, I've got the IFRA interview, which you all know about already. (It's not too late to send me some more ideas for questions, by the way.) Then I'll be spending some time in the company of the inventive marketing people from Penhaligon's, who are going to unveil details of their releases for the rest of the year. And then - as if all this weren't enough - I shall be donning cummerbund and bow tie to attend... the FiFi UK awards. What's more, I'll be tweeting from the ceremony, so if you're interested in finding out who picks up the trophy in the Best Niche category, then you'll need look no further than my Twitter page.
I'm sure that's far too much excitement for one week... but I know I'll enjoy every moment.
Please don't forget that you've got until tomorrow night (UK time) to enter the draw for a sample of MDCI's La Belle Hélène. And I'm very pleased to be able to let you know that on Tuesday I'll be posting my review of Tauer Perfumes' brand new Zeta as well as offering a sample of the perfume in a draw.
I'll leave you with a (slightly) silly Sunday question: what would be a good perfume for me to wear to the IFRA interview? Naturally, it'll have to be a vintage juice, and I guess the obvious choice would be Mitsouko... but perhaps one of you could come up with something more subversive...
Have a great Sunday,
