    Oh nothing in particular! I've always been very interested in the supernatural. Ghosts especially! When I first saw "canwll corfe", I was hoping it would mean something interesting. Since I was reading a book about hauntings, I'd figured I would. I've always been interested in culture and language and it had it all! Corpse candle? Harbinger of death? Old welsh? It was so unusual and foreign. I've used it as my username on every site I've joined since I read it.
  2. Hi Jaime, Thanks for accepting the request.

    I gotta say I love your taste in fragrances Jaime, I've made a checklist out of your five star rated ones because all the ones I've tried so far out of them have been fantastic

    The "guy in the chair" is actor Henry Cavill from "The Tudors." He is also the model in many Dunhill fragrance ads and commercials.

    JaimeB, this poem is for you...

    Alone And Drinking Under The Moon


    Alone and Drinking Under the Moon

    Amongst the flowers I
    am alone with my pot of wine
    drinking by myself; then lifting
    my cup I asked the moon
    to drink with me, its reflection
    and mine in the wine cup, just
    the three of us; then I sigh
    for the moon cannot drink,

    and my shadow goes emptily along
    with me never saying a word;
    with no other friends here, I can
    but use these two for company;
    in the time of happiness, I
    too must be happy with all
    around me; I sit and sing
    and it is as if the moon

    accompanies me; then if I
    dance, it is my shadow that
    dances along with me; while
    still not drunk, I am glad
    to make the moon and my shadow
    into friends, but then when
    I have drunk too much, we
    all part; yet these are

    friends I can always count on
    these who have no emotion
    whatsoever; I hope that one day
    we three will meet again,
    deep in the Milky Way.

    Oh, uh, thanks! It's actually from a TV show I used to watch (Red Dwarf) =)

    Reviewing a fragrance is an art, and obviously you're an artist in this domain, very poetic, accurate and pleasant to read.

A Picture from the blue

by JaimeB on 25th March 2015 at 03:02 PM
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:

Thanks for

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

by JaimeB on 4th February 2015 at 03:48 PM
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.

Homeland Security and TSA regulations soon put an end to that kind of extravagance. For a while, I tried to pack more carefully. I made sure to put scents into checked luggage, still taking at least four or

November in Europe, Paris Part One

by JaimeB on 3rd February 2015 at 08:06 PM
When we returned from our trip to Europe toward the middle of November, all four of us were sick; it was some cold that was going around Italy that got all of us. We all got sick at different times, one of our traveling companions first, who later ended up with walking pneumonia, and I was the last, but our complete recovery took a couple of weeks. Of course, we’re all perfectly fine now.

The trip was glorious. We started with three days in Paris.

We arrived in Paris on

November in Europe, Paris Part Two

by JaimeB on 3rd February 2015 at 08:06 PM
Returning by the rue St-Jacques, we passed the Lycée Louis le Grand, the setting for Judith Rock’s historical mystery series set in the then-Jesuit seventeenth-century school. Rock's sleuth, Jesuit scholastic Charles du Luc, is one of my favorite literary detectives. Back through the Île de la Cité and along the Right Bank quays, we trudged the rest of the fifteen-and-a-half miles we had slogged that day. That evening, on our way back to the Place des Vosges for our dinner reservation at La Place

November in Europe, Rome

by JaimeB on 3rd February 2015 at 08:05 PM
Early the next morning with bags repacked we were on our way to Rome. The Lufthansa flight from Paris to Frankfurt was pleasant and polite; we were amply fed and cosseted, in good German fashion. In Frankfurt, we were to connect with two friends flying in from home and continue to Italy for the rest of our trip. Their plane was late, we were waiting for them in the wrong airport lounge, and we practically ran through the large, unfamiliar Frankfurt airport to catch up with them and find our gate,
