Jean-Claude Ellena Winner + My Book's Arrived!


Many thanks to all of you who entered last week's draw and left such interesting, thought-provoking comments. It's always fascinating to discover how other people approach the 'art vs craft' debate in relation to perfumery.

I have sought the assistance of Random.org and I can reveal that the winner of the signed copy of Jean-Claude Ellena's new book is

Magnus

Congratulations. Please send your address to persolaise at gmail dot com, and I'll post your prize to you as soon as possible.

And finally, in the photo above you'll see something rather special that arrived at Maison Persolaise a few days ago: the advance copies of my very own labour of love, Le Snob: Perfume. I can't tell you how exciting it was to be able to hold them in my hands. Needless to say, I'll post more about the book in the weeks to come.

Persolaise.

  6. How fantastic... I cannot wait to get my copy. I believe your blog is the best one available and I read quite a few. Intelligently written, informative and a wonderful resource for everyone from the most sophisticated users to the novices eager to increase their knowledge. I sense in your writing a true passion for your subject and the ability to express that passion with elegance and clarity.
