There once was a man from Nantucket
who wore a pretty smelling toilet water that he kept in a bucket.......
I am a simpleton
my fragrances are won through low bids on ebay, but hey!..
maybe one fine day my low priced scents will help me find a gal like Kate Middleton........
Adidas, Byblos, Kanon and Bel Ami...........liquid smells w/various notes like vetiver from the isle of Haiti..........some I have come to love and others I will just sell,

Lovely unexpected mistake when working on a new fragrance today, picking up a recently delivered vial of ginger oil instead of what I was expecting to.
The ginger adding a refreshing spicy dimension to the delicate sweet floral frangipani I was working with.
Might have to rethink the perfume style I was working on.
What are your aromatic & floral combination favourites?

Can't believe I found a stockist in sleepy Perth that has his perfumes : )
Planning a trip out there on Saturday..really want a bottle of At the beach, and maybe Snow? Going to sniff them all until my nose gives in
Its a boutique called Meg and Wally..which could be lethal to my credit card
Who needs food anyway LOL
