Persolaise Is Two Today


Today is the second birthday of Persolaise.com, so I couldn't let the occasion go by without a brief, celebratory post. Thanks very much indeed to all of you for continuing to read this blog and for supporting my scented endeavours.

I'll be spending most of the day on the Top Secret Writing Project, but I'll also make some time for my FiFi judging duties which, at the moment, require me to assess a selection of perfumes about which I know nothing whatsoever: they're in plain bottles labelled only with a code number. I've always found 'blind' testing a curious experience. Perhaps I ought to write about it one day...

I've also had an initial sniff of MDCI's new Chypre Palatin and I wonder if Bertrand Duchaufour (yes, him again) intended it as an homage to Lauder's Beautiful. A full review will appear here in due course.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend,

Persolaise.

  3. Happy blogoversary, P. And do write about blind testing at some point, it must be really weird and fascinating. Yet, it makes perfect sense in relation to judging quality and originality without being lured in by fancy packaging, pr or brand loyalty.
