Persolaise Is 5 Years Old!

Help yourselves

Well, well, well, talk about taking me by surprise: 5 years have passed since I published my very first post here on Persolaise.com. It's a cliche, but I honestly don't know where the time has gone. I can still remember the day when I stopped uhmmm-ing and ahh-ing and decided that, yes, I would have a go at this perfume blogging lark...

Quite a bit has happened since then (off the top of my head: the publication of more than 700 posts; the appearance of my perfume guide book; interviews with some of my favourite perfumers) but I'm pleased to say that my appetite for the subject of scent remains as sharp as it was in 2010... even during those times when the demands of the Day Job mean that putting together the next post is almost impossible.

Part of the reason my enthusiasm hasn't diminished is YOU, my wonderful readers. Your comments, notes and emails make all the hard work worthwhile, which is why I want to mark this anniversary by expressing sincere gratitude to each and every one of of you. Thank you so much for your kindness, generosity and support.

I'd also like to thank the brands, industry figures and fellow scribes who have embraced what I try to do on Persolaise.com and have appreciated the importance of independent, unbiased writing.

Finally, I have to say a special thank you to Madame Persolaise. If it weren't for her patience - and her very tolerant nose! - this site would have dwindled into nothing ages ago.

The only thing left to say is: let's see if we can manage another 5 years!

With warmest wishes to one and all,

Persolaise

  9. Your writing on perfume is like that bowl of porridge that is 'just right' and one could eat it all! Perfectly judged and a pleasure to read, regardless of whether I agree with your opionion on a particular perfume or not. I read every post.
