Eats & Treats: Salty Road’s Bergamot Salt Water Taffy

Drink: Cocktails made with the rose liqueur that my friend N. recently gave me!

Garb: I get more compliments on a navy blue, long-sleeved, buttoned-to-the-neck Uniqlo dress that I purchased last spring than on anything else I ever wear. So funny.

Pleasure: Meeting some independent perfumers and other true scent-lovers at some recent events around NYC.
