    Last weekend I made a trip over the hill to take in the sights, sounds, and smells of downtown Santa Cruz, CA. Santa Cruz is best known for its boardwalk, surfing, and the University of California at Santa Cruz. The downtown area is appropriately youthful and bohemian with import stores on every block and street musicians on every corner.

  5. Is There a Future for Chypres?

    One of my favorite perfume genres (perhaps my very favorite) is the chypre, characterized by bergamot in the top note and oakmoss and labdanum (and sometimes patchouli) in the base. It is one of modern perfumery's most brilliant discoveries and is represented by some of the finest and best crafted of perfumes ever to find their way onto the market.
