  1. Fille en Aiguilles by Serge Lutens: the first impressions

    Last Saturday I decided to leave an idyll of a French country and to visit a local city Vichy to remember how does it feel to be among people again. Vichy is famous by its thermal baths and sources from the times of the Ancient Rome. But I was there just to walk on the streets of Vichy, to admire the glory of its architecture, to try some sweets and of course to visit some perfumery stores. Because in French perfumeries you can find fragrances that are not available yet in Netherlands. Well, I found ...

  5. Wild Things

    by , 14th September 2009 at 01:31 AM (My nose is growing)


    My wild weekend started Friday, when I smelled skunk on the way to work. I was in my car on the highway and Im pretty sure the skunk spray had happened well off the highway. With no danger, with the smell diluted, and knowing that Id soon be out of range, it struck me that it was interesting and kind of nice. That got me thinking about animal scents that used to be used in perfumes.
