  1. Confessions of a Perfume Dork

    One night right before Christmas, I got online to review the differences and compare the bottles of Lolita Lempicka versus LL Midnight. Why?

    It all started with Dune. I discovered it on the arm of a fellow sixth-grader, one who was trying ...

  4. On Pleasure and Its Detractors

    All the previous history of the universe has led to this moment. Considering how much struggle it's been to get here, I feel the least I can do is enjoy it.

  5. Sharini Graines de Paradis


    First up is Sharini's Graines de Paradis, a perfume created by Sharini Parfums Naturels in the south of France.
