It’s spring! FINALLY. I had the flu for over a week and by the time I felt like going outside, there were pink blossoms everywhere. It was like coming out of hibernation. My senses are still rather dull but I have a craving for pretty pink perfumes.
Since I still can’t really smell anything, I thought it would be a good time to launch a feature that I’ve been wanting to write. Instead of writing an extensive guide to perfumes with a predominate note (like this… Continue reading | 12 Comments
Fruits of the Tree of Knowledge (formally known as “What Katie Did on Friday Night”) by 4160 Tuesdays is, as you’d expect from its glorious title, is a fruity fragrance.

Raw Silk and Red Roses is like a dusty rose. It’s dry rose petals with stone fruits. I also get a cedar which seems fitting when we’re talking about raw silk. It’s like a silk slip stored… Continue reading
One of the things that I’ve learned is that coastal towns of the same latitude are really similar despite their political boundaries. Now coastal “touristy” towns are even more similar. The shops are the same. The restaurants are the same (always fried fish and potatoes). And the candies are usually the same. It’s something sticky and sugary either it be taffy or candy floss.There’s typically some sort of dinky arcade and rides. Now I’m in Washington and the beaches here are lovely but… Continue reading | 4 Comments
