This blog is a great way to write quite freely; to indulge in longer articles and anything I get excited about. I am grateful that you, the readers, keep coming back, even though you’ll never quite know what to expect.
It is fair to say that the likelihood of perfume featuring here is quite high, and this year I am delighted to be in the illustrious company of some of Britain’s best fragrance bloggers on the Jasmine Blogger Award shortlist! Congratulations to everyone who has earned a nomination this year – it is brilliant to see good fragrance writing celebrated in this way, and best of luck to all nominees.
The Fragrance Foundation is uploading the shortlisted articles here, bit by bit, so do check them out (it’s a good opportunity to read articles in the print categories as well).
The award ceremony will be held at the BAFTAs on the 18th of March. I’m looking forward to cheering my friends along again. It’s going to be a really fragrant day – I am going to a BSP lecture about the mechanism of olfaction by Charles Sell that same evening. Look out for a write-up about that here afterwards.
