Spend just a few minutes going through some of the world’s most-respected perfume sites, and you’re bound to see countless references to everything from vinyl to velvet. For instance, Neil Chapman, Jasmine Award winning writer of the Black Narcissus blog, believes that "many perfumes are redolent of textures and fabric: both grace the skin and the body, and they complement and amplify each other to beautiful effect."
I'm excited to let you know that the cover story of the latest issue of The Scented Letter was written by yours truly: it focuses on the subject of how and why some fragrances and ingredients remind us of certain fabrics. Naturally, it features references to lots of fascinating perfumes, but as ever, I won't say what they are here, because the magazine is available only to members of The Perfume Society.

Oh, and before I go, a quick reminder about the next episode of Love At First Scent, my Facebook Live event: it'll be on my Facebook page (click here) on Friday 29th September, at 3:30 pm UK time. I hope you'll be able to tune in!
