when you brought the Saudi prince who magically bestowed upon me my Percheron 6-hitch (Fougeuse) and mornings on the terrace, watching the gardeners weed the flower beds (Diaphane).. But I now love you more than rubies. You have brought me a lily. A lily I can wear. Bless you, darling....

So no perfume review for this week. I will review the gel: very effective in delivering heat with a "nice clean" smell that's an eye-watering eucalyptus. But as I mentioned, I can stand upright and use the clutch on the car without whimpering. I hope by the weekend to be back in the...

Okay! On to perfume. Folks are always surprised that I love soft Spring scents. Hey, knife-wielding psychos can like The Pretty, too, y'know. Now that I can smell iris I am falling head over heels with all sorts of variations on the theme, from chilly 28 La Pausa to the rooty-carroty...

I went to a Perfume Only state, blissfully spritzing on a bare canvas. Until recently. It started about 2 years ago – Lovely Nancy, who introduced me to my Summer fave, Agraria Bitter Orange, sent along a little sample of the shower gel. Bliss. There's something about surrounding yourself...

I wrote about 1000 Flowers perfume months ago on Vitamin Daily, but I recently stepped into Lark (an awesome clothing store in Vancouver) and the shop smelt of their Reglisse Noire perfume, which was so wonderful that I thought it merited some additional coverage here on Searching for Style....

By this, I do not mean "perfume etiquette" – e.g., whether it's polite to offgas Dior Poison at the opera, although frankly I find people slowly unwrapping cough drops and hard candies far more annoying in that situation (crinkle crinkle criiinklle). No, I'm talking about the myriad ways...

Everyone ready? I'm sending perfumed hugs out to all of you lovely Posse peeps. In lieu of a perfume-centric post, I'm going with something (nearly) equally dear to my heart — lipstick. I don't wear much makeup these day, except for special occasions, but I do love a great lipstick,...
