You’re going to get sick of reading this pretty soon, but yes, the Invasion Of The Day Job is still going strong. I’m hanging on in there… and using lots and lots of samples for sustenance.
Several weeks ago, I’d hoped that today would be the day when I’d be publishing a post about a talk given by Mandy Aftel in London. Sadly, a certain Icelandic volcano recently decided to make its presence felt, which prompted Mandy to cancel her trip, which in turn meant that the talk never took place. As if that weren't enough, I've also been denied the opportunity of a neat link with a give-away, so I have no choice but to resort to a clunking non sequitur and announce that Scent & Sensibility – which now stocks a selection of Aftelier scents – have kindly offered samples of some of Mandy’s work to one lucky Persolaise reader. To enter the draw, please read the terms and conditions below and then leave a comment on this post on the subject of disrupted travel plans; on this occasion, I won't reply to each individual comment. [The prize is a sample of the edp of Fig, Cepes & Tuberose, Candide, Shiso and Tango as well as a sample of the extrait of Fig.]
Please remember to come back on Tuesday to find out who my next guest blogger is; I’ll whet your appetite by revealing that her post is about a revered classic that’s going to be 100 years old next year.
And if you’ve got a few moments to spare, please head on over to Penhaligon’s blog to read my Father’s Day-inspired article there. I'd really appreciate it if you'd consider leaving a comment on it.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend,
