Persolaise Turns 8 + Love At First Scent & #Smellfie

Exactly eight years ago today, I published my very first post here on, so I wanted to mark the occasion by saying a larger-than-Karl-Lagerfeld's-ego thank you to each and every single one of YOU. If it hadn't been for your support, your encouragement and your ceaseless ability to bring a smile to my face - be it here, or on Facebook or Insta or Twitter or YouTube or wherever - this blog would have died a quiet little death long before now. So...


Your comments and feedback and interaction mean more to me than you can imagine.

Right, that's quite enough gushing from me. Time to change the subject.

The fates permitting, I hope to broadcast the next episode of Love At First Scent on Facebook Live this Friday, 16th March, at 6:00 pm UK time (2:00 pm New York time). Please do try to tune in, not least because I've received a sample of the brand new Frederic Malle - Music For A While - and I'm going to do my very best - arrrrggggh! - not to smell it until Friday!

And finally, a word about the spectacle below. The somewhat dubious image is my attempt to join in this year's #smellfie campaign, as organised by The Perfume Society. The aim is just to have a bit of fun and celebrate our mutual love of all things perfume-y, so to take part, post a picture of yourself - and a perfume you love (in my case, one of my favourite leathers ever, the impassioned Lonestar Memories from Tauer) - on Instagram or Twitter and be sure to tag it with #smellfie and the relevant Perfume Society handle on whichever platform you're using (on Twitter, they're @Perfume_Society and on Insta they're @theperfumesociety).

Have fun!
