What’s in a name?
Have you ever purchased a fragrance (or a sample of a fragrance) just because the name appealed to you? I have…and here are a few examples.
I’ll be giving a talk on classic perfume bottles for the Brooklyn Brainery on Thursday, June 11, 2020. It will be offered online, via Zoom, so it’s a bit of an experiment.
If you’re curious, see the Brainery website for more information and registration details.
Hope to “see” a few of you there!
Hello! Last week was my 10th week of isolation/lockdown/work-from-home and I’m taking more walks outside to do local errands, etc. (wearing a mask!) but it’s still a very small and solitary radius of activity for me. I’m missing my favorite haunts (and the people who share them with me) more and more.
If you spent time around me between September 2019 and February 2020 (life before lockdown!), there’s a good chance you caught a whiff of Régime des Fleurs’ Chloe Sevigny Little Flower. It was my most-worn fragrance over those months, not to mention my most-complimented.
Reading: Still getting through Colette’s Claudine novels. Also, dipping into some coffee-table books about perfume bottles.
Audio: A Lloyd Cole “listening party” on Twitter, organized by Tim Burgess, with Mr. Cole himself! I’m definitely going to “attend” more of these.
Video: Finished Season 5 of “Schitt’s Creek” and Season 1 of “Broadchurch.” Two very different moods!
Thank you for your kind anniversary wishes last week!! I hope you’ve found some happy memories and future wish-plans of your own to enjoy over the past few days.
Other than my nostalgic dip into Caron Bellodgia, what have I been wearing lately…?
Today my husband and I celebrated our 13th wedding anniversary. We both took the afternoon off from our work-from-home schedules and enjoyed a leisurely walk around our neighborhood and a local park (the sun was out!), take-out dinner and dessert from a local Italian restaurant, an exchange of small gifts related to the traditional anniversary motif for this year, and the conclusion to a mystery we’ve been watching on Netflix.
