Things I did not do this week: I did not finish the second part of Things I wish I'd known as a newbie perfumista. Nor did I finish the follow-up post to Perfumista tip: on lists of fragrance notes, why they matter & why they don't. I did, however, watch most of the first season of Flight of the Conchords (any fans?), and I made serious headway in clearing out untried perfume samples. So the week was not totally wasted.
Still, here we are on Friday with nothing to post, again, so I'm taking a suggestion from reader Santemon for a poll topic: describe the custom fragrance of your dreams, and name the perfumer you'd choose to have develop it for you.
I've already mentioned one of my dream perfumes. It's a "very green jasmine, bright and sparkling and just a bit indolic, over masses of dusty incense and a tiny dollop of dark woods". I am really torn on the perfumer choice, but after much thought I've decided on Daphne Bugey.
