Round-Up: Best of the Blogs July 11, 2006Posted by scentbloggers in The Scented Round-Up: Best of Blogging.
A round-up of the best in perfume blogging:
Bois de Jasmin takes a tour of Paris and interviews perfumer Ralf Schwieger, the creator of Hermes Eau de Merveilles, and Frederic Malle Lipstick Rose, amongst others:
“To be a perfumer, one must have curiosity and discipline. Being open-minded is a very important trait, and so is being able to take risk. Most importantly, one must not be overcome by frustration, which is an important part of a perfumer’s life,” notes Mr. Schwieger.
Estee Lauder’s Azurée body oil, made under the direction of Tom Ford is deemed lovely over at Perfume-Smellin’ Things * :
It is an indolent scent, sensual in a lazy sort of way, the smell of beautiful, tanned people, pleasantly fatigued by the sun.
