Cinquecento! The Perfumed Dandy is 500 Today!

Dearest Fluff-bundles

The Dandy is 500 today!

Not years, you understand, though sometimes it can feel that way, but posts.

Who knew?

Certainly not I, until yesterday when the number 499 loomed as I popped up the poll for today’s perfume.

So that means 117 Hit Parades, nearly as many scents of the day, interviews, selections, musings, photographs galore and by my reckoning over 130 scented letters too… yes all adding up to a great quincentennial.

By way of celebration today’s perfumed picked by your fair hands will be subject to an especially speedy epistle and the scented letter will be with you tomorrow!

How’s that for super fast service?!?

But what will it be…?Ā  That news to follow soon.

In the meantime I may just pop a cork or two…

Here’s to many hundreds more!

Yours ever

The Perfumed Dandy.

    Congratulations, dear Dandy!! I raise my mug of green tea & ginger to you. Valentine’s Day is coming, up, and that will be your one year anniversary. I have enjoyed every single one of your many scented letters and posts. Here’s to many more! xo

    p.s. A big, fluffy, scented (((hug))) to you!

  3. Congratulations! Here’s to the next 500!

    Congratulations!!! So glad I found your brilliant scented letters.

    Congratulations Sir T.P.D. – I so enjoy your posts, long may they continue!


    oh happy day, The Hardworking Dandy! šŸ˜‰

  7. Congratulations, my dearest Beau! The mighty Brummell would be proud, albeit a bit bewildered by this display of industriousness and effort. šŸ˜‰

    I cannot wait for your review of Champagne/Yvresse. A most suitable scent to mark the great 500!

    BTW, I sent you an email to the address that you use to post with on my blog. Some random ramblings, primarily about Chanel.

      Yes Mr Brummel would wonder at such a display of effort though, the proverbial swan, beneath the effortless display, below the waterline I’m sure even he was paddling like crazy.
      Champagne and JOY in one day… good golly that might result in ‘an early bath’ for M. Dandy.
      Yours ever

      PS I shall look again, but nothing so far in the inbox…

      • I sent it to the email address that starts with the letter “a” about 9 days ago, so perhaps it ended in your Spam folder. I have just re-sent to both email addresses that I have for you. Hopefully, one of them will work out. šŸ™‚

    Congratulations – long may you reign!

    Mr. Dandy,
    I can’t think of a better day to turn one than Valentine’s Day. I’d say you’ve had an effect on me like fine champagne. So to you I toast to your staying power.

    Congratulations, and looking forward to many, many more lovely posts!

  11. 130 scented letters – this is the number. Those “hit parades” are cheating! šŸ˜‰ But still congratulation on the round number. I’ll toast for the next 500.

      I might have known you’d be a stickler for statistics! It was the the number 499 appearing on WordPress that prompted the impromptu celebration… and besides I think that photo essays, interviews and selections should count top.
      Besides, we’ll all be busy with other things when The Dandy’s actual birthday comes around!
      Yours ever

  12. Great milestone Mr Dandy but I will wait until 14 February to congratulate you properly on an entire year’s output instead of this fluffy duffy ‘almost a year but not quite’ interim milestone. You confused me! Lol with Undina.

    Now, having jovially and with some jocularity, said that, I have checked my own posting abilities and find only 205 posts (and a further 235 drafts; let’s call those concepts or even just post titles!). As we launched on the very same day I will indeed doff my hat right now to such consistency of output, the 500 posts, extremely high design standards and impeccable content. You are making this world, including the webbed parts, a better place. Write on…

  13. My dear Mr Dandy

    Congratulations on being 500, you only look 499! I jest of course. Your blog is a unique hub in the fragrant firmament and your gracious manners refresh the soul, harking back to simpler times. I will always be grateful for the interest you have shown in my musings, and your kind encouragement. In fact, you gave me some wriggle room to make my blog last longer by creating the “1001 scents” idea when I’d completed a year. Having your acquaintance “instructs delightfully” to paraphrase Alexander Pope.

    Just for you I shall wear a dandy scent today- Guerlain’s Chamade.

    Now do excuse me, I have a very difficult customer demanding scrambled egg and soldiers.

    Your friend
