  2. Tea For Two - I made a mess.

    (Original post here.)

    L’Artisan Parfumeur has a reputation for being daring, innovative, and completely unique. I’d heard enough good about Tea For Two and Mechant Loup (review forthcoming) that I selected both of them for sampling from Luckyscent. In short, the scent lives up to the name. The opening is smoky and mildly sweet, like tea steeping. In this phase it’s rather interesting, and a somewhat rustic scent in an unusual use of the description.

    One of the more ubiquitous sights on Basenotes is a thread to the effect of “Given what I already have, what else do you all recommend I get?” I just commented on one of them a few minutes ago, and I’m responsible for three or four of them myself. One of them had several people suggest Antidote by Viktor & Rolf, the same perfumers that make the ladies’ hit Flowerbomb. Now, these recommendations were from members whose opinions I value quite highly, so I ...
  5. Things to do

    Sometimes it seems all I do is write lists. Then rewrite them. Then write them somewhere else. In my filofax. In a pad. On my Mac.

    Then there are lists that aren't lists really. Like all the starred emails in gmail. Like the folders (both real and computer-based) that are full of stuff to add to the directory.

    I can't seem to get organized. I've tried various apps to help (see Things, Remember the Milk, Omnifocus, Toodledo, the much-missed I Want Sandy - and so many ...
