Evening! Or maybe you’re reading this at some other time of day, in which case ‘Hi!’
I’m ridiculously tired and I’ve used a lot of energy today to do random research (and also a very exciting job interview) so I’m going to give my brain a break and just post a list that I have on my computer- and maybe you’ll enjoy it. (I think you will, especially if you’re a perfume person).
Have you ever asked yourself, “If I had to pick only one perfume house to wear for the rest of my life, which house would I pick?”

And then I went on Facebook Fragrance Friends and discovered (GASP) that my fragrance wish list document is missing. Let me just say that this document was the pinnacle of my perfume evolution.
