This entry is intended to be a polite nudge… or three nudges, to be precise.
Nudge #1: You’ve only got until the end of today to enter my give-away draw for a full bottle of Tauer Perfumes’ Orange Star. If you’ve already entered, you may be interested in reading everybody else’s comments on the subject of secrecy in perfumery. They’ve certainly given me ideas for at least two blog posts.
Nudge #2: You’ve got until Wednesday to submit your votes for the 2011 Basenotes awards. Categories include: Best Perfume Of 2010, Best Perfume Of All Time (now THERE’S a question) and Best Perfume Blog. If you’re a UK-based Basenotes member, you can also vote in the Best Niche Perfume category of Britain’s prestigious FiFi awards.
Nudge #3: I’m still taking ideas for subjects to raise in my upcoming interview with the Director of IFRA UK. So far, I’ve received many excellent suggestions… but there’s definitely room for a few more.
I’ll leave you with a question (which I also asked on Twitter and Facebook yesterday): how many of you have a list of your all-time top ten favourite perfumes? I was asked for my favourites the other day and I had to confess that I haven’t got a list… which is a bit odd, considering that, as a child, I was constantly engaged in the very boyish activity of compiling Top 10s of all kinds of favourites: TV programme theme tunes, songs that should have made it to Number 1, Doctor Who villains… you name it. I suppose I really ought to make a perfume list… right…?
