Dearest Guerlain Powder Puffs
I did so enjoy our talk last weekend on the subject of deceased scents that we’d like to see re-instated.
So much so that I thought…
Let’s do it all again!!
Not the same subject, bien sur, but another fragrant forum.
Sunday will be the first after the Feast of the Epiphany when, according to the scriptures, the Magi arrived at manger-side to see the baby Gee and realised his, well, shall we simply say, somewhat influential future.
What has this to do with aromas dearest waffling Dandy?
Well, in the millennia since then an ‘epiphany’ has come more generally to mean a moment of illumination or divine realisation.
That time when the scales fall from our eyes (or in this case nose) and the truth, finally, is seen (or smelt).
So, to this weeks questions…
What epiphany moments have you had when it comes to perfumes?
About which scents have you changed your mind and realised that in fact you loved them when before you found them a bore or worse?
Or are your fragrance judgements infallible?
Are you the pontiff of perfumes?
Now I have a few fragrances towards which I’ve altered my attitude over the years and will be happy to share…
If you tell me yours I’ll tell you mine.
