I still haven’t gotten back to speed since getting back from vacation. Besides fighting 2 days of jet lag and then moving right into the busiest 2 weeks of the year at work; getting back into my regular blogger groove has been impossible. Thanks to the New York Times, I could bypass getting back to my regular musings to provide a link to a great article about Denyse Beaulieu and her book “The Perfume Lover: A Personal History of Scent.” As an added bonus, The Scented Hound as well as other bloggers (The Candy Perfume Boy, Perfume Posse and Bois de Jasmin) are cited and hyperlinked along with some other perfume resources. The article is entitled “Revealing a Lot, Aromatic and Otherwise.” Be sure to check it out!
I promise to get back to normal soon (OK, at least as normal as I can be :))!

Congrats on getting mentioned! That’s so wonderful. Now that you’re famous I hope you don’t forget us little people. 😉
Make sure you get your rest because it’s easy to get run down and get sick with all you’ve got going on.
You always find the cutest dog photos.

Cute dog photos are easy to find 🙂 As for being sick, the last few days of rain and warm weather have exploded the pollen and I am now popping Allegra like Milk Duds. Getting old is hell!

I’m still buried with snow so no pollen yet. I’m not looking forward to that part of spring.

A huge Congratulations on the mention. YAYYYYYYY!!! I think that’s absolutely fabulous and may it be the start of more people finding your wonderful blog.
Get some rest, sweetpea. One doesn’t travel halfway around the world and trapse through numerous diff. African reserves from the wee hours of the morning, and then just pop right back into one’s usual schedule back home. No-one expects anything from you other than more wonderful, glorious photos at some point later down the line! I hope the next two weeks at work go as smoothly as possible.

Thanks Sal… you are always so sweet. BTW, was wearing Habanita last night. I was feeling crappy with allergies and that made me feel oh so much better!

That’s wonderful! Congratulations on the mention – The New York Times, no less! I hope your workload eases and you get to enjoy a little bit of downtime in the coming weekend.

Thanks Haja… perchance are you doing Sniffapalooza in May?
March 22, 2013 at 11:02 pm
I thought about it but ultimately, I think I will be overwhelmed by the sheer number of perfumistas! Will you be participating? I may still change my mind and/or more seriously consider the one later in the year if another one is being planned.

I was thinking about it but it appears the Bergdorf breakfast is filled so I won’t be going. Maybe in the fall?

Well done on that mention!!
I’m sure you’ll be back in the swing of things soon enough and look forward to more of your wise words.
