Midnight in Paris – Customers who you like this, also like…. (April 18, 2011 New Fragrance Listing)

I love my music, from Frank Sinatra to Florence and the Machine, but there’s so much out there, that it’s hard to know what you’ll like, and how to spend your money and more importantly, your time. So I’ve become a really big fan of the “Customers-who-like-this-also-like….” feature that some websites have because they lead you to new ground and they are a real help when deciding what to read, what to listen to or what to cook for dinner.

Diorella – And the mystery note is…

Diorella poster

Yesterday was bright and sunny, the kind of April day that’s cool and warm at the same time – the kind where you still need a coat but feel kind of silly wearing it. I needed some panache, some flair, some je ne sais quoi, so one quick spritz of Diorella, and I was out the door.

Folravril – It’s spring somewhere (April 11, 2011 New Fragrance Listing)

My teenage son just started a summer job. Watching him go through the whole process of hunting for a job, landing a job and working at a job reminded me of some of the jobs I had when I was a young woman.
Why, I remember all the good times I had and the great friends I made, while I was a cashier at a grocery store, or stocking shelves at a bookstore or when I was an inventory control clerk. I was young, smart and slim - unencumbered by the responsibilities of adulthood. The world was my oyster and I its pearl.

The Nosey Bunch – An Invitation for you to Participate in a Scent Gathering

Daniel Joffe, a really great guy with a great nose, puts these events together and has organised a gathering on Saturday April 16th, 2011 at Noor Boutique, 176 Cumberland St. in Toronto and you are invited to attend! Here are the details:

We have a new perfumista in the family!

Kay has a new granddaughter! She is devoting the day to celebrating and being with family, so we won’t be posting about fragrance today.
