    Very nice!
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    Thanks. No Kindle version on amazon yet. Must have been a difficult translation job.
    FYI: I spray all fragrances on clothing, never on skin.

    It's a funny thing: I miss it a lot, and that is precisely why I'm not going back. I've been doing a lot more reading of late, without the check-the-media interruptions.

    Very happy to hear that! I think that's a way of taking care of yourself. I look forward to reading the first perfume guide you published. If you ever come back to Twitter, please post pictures of your beautiful cat :')

    Great! But I'm missing -

    • Your blog
    • Your columns (Style Arabia, another one I can't recall - was it Woman's World)
    • Still awaiting the release of paperback / hardcover version of the 2018 Guide (unless I'm missing something, this is yet to be released)

    Hmmm, interesting!

    What are the main differences between this original edition and the Guide that came out in 2008? I'm assuming there must be at least some degree of overlap.

    Practically none: 1994 was the end of the Golden Age of perfumery, few things had been reformulated, many of the fragrances no longer exist, etc. It’s a time capsule of a bygone age.

    Thanks for askimg!

    Blog: not enough columns to make a book
    Style Arabia: ditto.
    2018 Guide: paperback available everywhere, no hard cover edition planned at the moment.

    I lack your perspective but to me, this period today is the golden age of artisanal brands.

    Could not agree more. The 80s were the sunset of the big brands.
