  1. Awwww, thank you both! I've had a terrific day. My 17month old daughter has not been so exhausted since her own birthday and went down like a dream tonight so fingers crossed I'll get a good night's sleep too.

21 scents in 21 days - a journey through my sample box

by Hebe on 21st August 2010 at 10:37 AM
I've been spending a bit of time on the 43things website. Basically you can enter your goals/to do things, and update them. Other people can "cheer" your goals and you can do the same for others. Half the pleasure is in scanning "zeitgeist" and seeing what everyone else wants to do. It was doing this that led me to a goal of doing 21 things in 21 days, the one I saw was for trying 21 different teas in 21 days.

So, you can imagine where this is leading - straight

Rhubarb rhubarb rhubarb

Comme des Garcons Sherbet Series: Rhubarb to be precise.

I caught the dregs of a tester of this at the Basenotes Lunch in August, snatched in my last few seconds in Liberty's. It was tantalisingly faint and faded within seconds, not helped by all the stronger scents that I'd be sampling. I finally ordered it last week, and here it is today.

First off, this appealed to me in many ways before I'd even taken the cap off. The packaging is gorgeously simple. The tiny white

Charmingly cheap! - Guerlain Insolence

by Hebe on 10th November 2009 at 07:01 AM
Today I'm sampling Guerlain Insolence EDP, courtesy of the lovely ubu and an embarassingly slow UK postal service.

This scent makes me smile. It makes me think of Emily Lloyd as the teenage strumpet in Wish You Were Here, with its minxy brazen hussy-ness. It puts me in mind of all those British euphemisms for girls having fun - cheap, easy, the village bike and there are plenty more that escape me this early in the day. It reminds me of the girl in every 6th form who had both the grades

I love Mr Hebe!

by Hebe on 29th October 2009 at 05:01 PM
He's been working in London today. Having quietly established that he wasn't working near Les Senteurs, I got on with my day.

Phone call 1: "Guess where I am?"
Me: (hopefully) "Outside the front door?"
Mr H: "Sorry, no, but I'm outside Penhaligons and would you like anything?"
Me: (hopefully): "A sample of Amaranthine please, if they have any".
Him: "ok, gotta go"

Phone call 2, 5 minutes later:

Corrupted memories

by Hebe on 17th October 2009 at 11:55 AM
So. We're talking about Ormonde Jayne Frangipane Absolut, one of my first informed fragrance purchases. I took it on my honeymoon (with one other fragrance) and loved it, wore it to work (loved it), wore it at weekends (loved it). Then, due to an error of packing and judgement, wore the tiniest spray to the hospital where my father-in-law was recovering from a heart attack. My lovely memories are now tinged with those of a sad and stressful time, with the added memory of my father-in law making
