It seems like I've missed a few things while I was busy stuffing my face with pastry. Somehow I've managed to be out of the country every year during NY Fashion Week in September. I'm starting to think it might not be such a bad thing considering some of the individuals that troll our streets on Fashion's Night Out:
Also, last Thursday just as I was sitting in the conference room of Serge Lutens Salon at the Palais Royal and savoring the place and the stories, Octavian of 1000 Fragrances was busy announcing Uncle Serge's retirement. I'll talk about this more later in the week, but all I can say is that I wouldn't worry. And, by the way, De Profundis wears beautifully on my skin.
And last, while the newly launched Perfume Magazine is a welcome addition to the perfume online conversation, the first issue includes an article about perfume blogs by someone who doesn't seem to have actually read any. All I can say is that as long as the mainstream industry keeps churning dreck on a budget I will keep calling the perfumers out on it. I don't know if the issue is even worth dedicating a full post for this particular article (I'll see how much interest this gets), but you're very welcome to join the discussion on Facebooks. My friends and I will be thrilled to hear from you.
I'll have stories and photos from Paris in the coming days; Is there anything else I've missed?
