  1. I love Mr Hebe!

    He's been working in London today. Having quietly established that he wasn't working near Les Senteurs, I got on with my day.

    Phone call 1: "Guess where I am?"
    Me: (hopefully) "Outside the front door?"
    Mr H: "Sorry, no, but I'm outside Penhaligons and would you like anything?"

  2. Antaeus: The Scent and the Legend

    I recently decided it had been far too long since I last wore Antaeus, Chanel's famous release of 1981, the one that put the now famous nose Jacques Polge on the map.

  5. A Chat with DelRae Roth of Parfums DelRae

    I was extremely fortunate today to spend a half-hour or more chatting with DelRae Roth, the motive force behind Parfums DelRae. She was spending the afternoon at Barneys, San Francisco, showing and discussing her six meticulously planned and sparklingly sophisticated perfumes, and dropping intriguingly vague hints about another to be introduced in the spring of 2010.
