"Twas the night before Christmas" - Niche style

In 2011, Gwen and I had a lot of fun writing our version of the beloved Christmas poem by Clement Moore, Twas the Night Before Christmas.  This seasonal classic is a favourite of ours, one which we read every Christmas Eve without fail to our children when they were young, following the tradtion set by our own parents. We hope you enjoy reading it as much as we had fun writing it!

I don’t know why, but all I want today is Mitsouko. Maybe it’s the overnight arrival of cool weather, maybe just last night’s crazy dreams, maybe it’s just me revisiting memories, but the new fragrances sitting on my perfume shelf are going to have to wait to have their stories told, because today it’s just Mitsouko.
