Oh, I love Perfumes: The A-Z Guide -- and I'm not even particularly interested in perfumes! The descriptions read like prose-poems ... witty, quasi-bitchy prose poems.


p.s. You've read "Perfume" by Patrick Suskind, right? I find stretches of it tedious but the sections in the Parisian perfumerie are catnippy and great.


Yeah, I've read Perfume. You know what, CAAF? It only just occurred to me that it may not be the perfumes themselves I'm intrigued by, but the words used to describe them...

Issey Miyake Perfume

It amazed me how wrong I was thinking thinking the topics of perfumes was shallow before I started diving into it. Now I am hooked and can't get enough.

Ooh, thanks for the link to The Posh Peasant! I just added one of their sample sets to my Christmas list. :)


Oh, you have to tell us which one you want, Steph!
