  1. Thoughts on Perfumes as an Obsession

    Thoughts on perfume

    Beware, this is not an essay containing good structure of thoughts, nor will it bring enlightenment to anyone, it is merely a long personal train of thoughts.

    After pursuing perfumes for now more than 3 years I find myself thinking about what they mean to me.
    How comes that I spend most of the money I have to “spare” and sometimes even some that I cant really spare?
    What is the point of having so many fragrances that ...
  2. Very good fortune

    I just need to share some very, very lucky news
    If you are sensible about bragging you might want to stop right here.

    Let me begin at the start, I'l try to make it short :

    About a week ago (end of April) I happened to check my spam filter by chance and, again by chance, opened a newsletter from AusLiebeZumDuft or FirstinFragrances as I think it's called internationally.

  5. In Paris - .......... - with a cold. I dont friggin believe it!

    SO, since yesterday I'm in paris, for the first time in my life.
    I was and am so excited about all the great shopping opportunities. But the plane air conditioned air didnt do my immune system well, apparently, since I think I must be coming down with a cold !!
    My nose is blocked and when I visited the Maison Guerlain I could smell all scents only very faintly.

    Derby, what a fougere it is, even the bit I could smell. Soapy, mossy, leathery. Amazing!
