Yours truly has a guest star spotlight on the incredible Alexis Karl’s blog, Body Made Luminous! Not all my writings are perfume blogs, so when I was asked if I would like to contribute, I was thrilled beyond measure for a chance to be a little freer and looser than I usually am. Find it here:

See you there?
…Of my guest blog for Penhaligon’s ‘Adventures in Scent’ is now up:
A Journey Down the Phial – Part Two
Please leave a comment, let me know what you thought, did it get your imagination going?
Are my days as a perfume writer now over? :-)
In a fortituous series of serendipitous occurrences, I was asked some time ago if I would like to guest blog for Penhaligon’s blog ‘Adventures in Scent’. I believe this had something to do with my review of ‘Amaranthine’…;-) Now, the time is nigh, as they said in all the best serial stories…
So then, ladies, gentlemen, and fellow perfumoholics…read all about a letter found in a Scent Library, a runaway bride, and the allure of an exotic location in 1893…
A Journey Down the Phial
The story will be concluded in Part Two to follow later – and I’ll keep you informed when it does!
