At times what I do for a living can be emotionally draining. Several years ago my job began to take its toll, making me irritable, anxious and short fused with my family at the end of each day. I decided that it was time for a change in perspective.
Recently I was gifted a perfume bottle of vintage Chloe in pristine condition. I wondered what thoughts would be conjured up upon smelling it…
Soccer season is in full swing for my three children. Historically this has always been met with trepidation on my behalf…
Laurie Erickson, the perfumer, has taken an unusual turn with vetiver, pairing it with a succulent blood orange and the soft florals of jasmine sambac and osmanthus absolute…and catch my while I faint, Mysore sandalwood.
The Fragrant Man is very pleased to introduce you to Amer, our new guest writer. Amer is Greek, and when not working as an architect, he is an amateur explorer in the art of perfumery – we found him in the comments section of the Fleus de Web post, where he delivered an extraordinary review of Multiflore.
Μετά από αρκετή σκέψη -και μια κριτική πάνω σε ένα άρωμα που δεν υπάρχει στ’αλήθεια- αποφάσισα να επιλέξω το Eau de Gentiane Blanche σαν θέμα της πρώτης μου κριτικής στο “The Fragrant Man” (Ο Ευωδιαστός Άνδρας).
Perfume is completely about olfactive memories….ones that were created and ones that are yet to be created. Nothing can trigger my emotional buttons as intensely as scent.
