My Dad was in line at the PO for me recently to mail some international sample packages, and the guy ahead of him tried to mail a live snake! A python, no less. Makes mailing perfume look tame, lol. 🙂 Luckily for the poor snake, they did not let him mail it.
I’m taking a break from mixing batches of scents to give my wrists a rest but am taking care of lots of little things. The new sample spray vials are ready to add to the site and I’ll do that within the next day.
Here’s a link to a nice review of Ambre Noir that talks about the way we associate music with scent. I catch myself sometimes thinking I have to “listen to that part again” when I’m formulating and need to put on a fresh dab to revisit the top or heart notes.
Also, there’s a great drawing going on at the new blog by perfumer Dawn Spencer Hurowitz. You might throw your name in the hat. Her blog looks like a fun read!
