    See, I didn't even know the quote was from there.
    I only know it from this brilliant commercial.
    The music is Prokofiev's Dance of the Knights.

    Spring makes its own statement, so loud and clear that the gardener seems to be only one of the instruments, not the composer.

    Hi Jaime,

    I've recently been experimenting with fougeres and had read some of your blogs about the 2010 Fougere Royale. It is something I might be interested in buying at some point. I was wondering if you might be interested in a sample swap if possible. I have some samples that may interest you. We seem to share a love of more classic scents (Patou pour Homme, Patou pour Homme Prive, etc). Let me know what you think.

    Yours Truly,

    Brian

    PM me when you get a chance

    I think you should give scent tours of your collection! That is so impressive! I think you need a stepped system to make it look like one of those "Scent organs." I am finding a lack of accessories for collectors.
  5. Hi Jamie,
    Just dropping in to say hello. I hope you are well and smelling good.
    Regards,
    Nora :--)

    Everybody can be great. Because anybody can serve. You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You don't have to make your subject and your verb agree to serve.... You don't have to know the second theory of thermodynamics in physics to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love. ~Martin Luther King, Jr.

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

by JaimeB on 4th February 2015 at 04:48 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 09:06 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 09:06 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 09:05 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,

November in Europe, Florence Part One

by JaimeB on 3rd February 2015 at 09:04 PM
The next morning held our last remaining moments in Rome. Alas, Enzo was not on duty to hail us a cab, and the concierge on duty was of a distinctly inferior sort. We needed a taxi that could hold the luggage of four travelers, so he counseled us to drag our bags the short distance to the Piazza Barberini where we could find a cab with a trunk big enough for all our stuff. We found one and were off to the Tiburtina station, where we were to catch our train to Florence. We rode on the Freccia Rossa
