Today was my birthday and one lucky reader is getting a fabulous gift!
First, thank you for all the wonderful messages and well-wishes here, on Facebook, and by email. I took a much-needed day off and thoroughly enjoyed myself. There was great food, perfume, shopping, and cuddling with kittens. As a last act of celebrating perfumer Mandy Aftel and I are holding a prize draw for one of the most luxurious body products on the market: Aftelier Ancient Resins Body Oil & Hair Elixir.
Ancient Resins was originally created for Leonard Cohen, a fact that by itself thrills me to no end. Leonard Cohen is such an important part of my cultural and emotional makeup-- the music, lyrics, and memories.
To be entered you need to be a US resident, 18 years of age or older and leave a comment here and tell us about a fragrance that is linked in your mind to a song, a musical piece or a musician. Or if you can't think of any, just tell us which Leonard Cohen song is your favorite.
Winner will be announced either Sunday night or Monday morning.
