So, following on from my post yesterday, I have a few ideas for the year ahead. Nothing mind-blowing original mind you, but something slightly different to most of what I posted last year.
I'm thinking of starting the year by running a series of musings (or whatever one might like to refer to it as) on perfume notes. It's not as if it hasn't been done before, but I'm interested in writing in more detail about perfumes I have tried within a genre and see where it takes me.
I think I will start with rose, which is one of my favourite perfume notes, then move on to (not necessarily in this order) vetiver, amber, oud, chypre, fougere, incense, woods, spice, perhaps floral (a difficult one for Mr Alpha Male ;-) ) and then who knows - quirky, strange, odd, whatever.
As an aside, I wore our dear Uncle Serge's Miel de Bois again today, for the first time in almost a year. Cor blimey, but it is a difficult perfume to wear! I've mentioned its freaky strength and longevity before, but I kid you not - one small spray at about 10 this morning and it is still firing away on all cylinders at 8pm, 10 hours later. One thing I've learned is that with this one, less is more, or at least, better.
