  1. A Picture from the blue

    A friend of mine was on a fight to Dubai recently and noticed one of the cabin crew was wearing a name tag with the same family name on it as mine. He took the man's picture and emailed it to me remarking on the strange coincidence. Of course, the flight attendant was from the same part of Spain, Galicia, as my parents, but it led me to think about some things I hadn't considered for a long time.

    Here's what I wrote to the friend who emailed me that picture:

  2. Thinking on it

    I have a lot of time at work when slow to think about fragrances and why I wear them. Or why you wear them. Mainly, I wonder why we have so, so many. I am speaking about a lot of us here on basenotes. Our bottle counts are huge. It is so strange. I am going to babble on maybe why I do. Feel free to join in.

    I used to think I just liked them. I just bought them on whims and whenever I felt like it. I didn't know people did not usually do that. One bottle was enough for them. Their ...

    I love flowers and photography. If the flowers are fragrant AND I can photograph them I am a very happy person.

    Jardin D'Amalfi

    Lemons blaze, hotter than the white heat on the green grass.
    Sleepy, wafts of tangerine and juicy neroli, roll by.
    It's time for a walk in the sunny garden.
    Dreaming in the daze of warmth,

  5. Packing scents for a trip (from a post to the Men's Fragrance board)

    My history of packing fragrances to take on a trip has changed quite a bit over the years. Early on, I packed quite a variety. Once I went on a week-long cruise and packed a different day and evening scent for each day, and then threw in a couple more, in case I changed my mind.
