Normal Service Will Be Resumed

Have you noticed an infrequency of posts over the last few months? If so, I apologise for my scarcity. 

It's been a busy few months for me and Odiferess has been temporarily neglected in favour of doing something that I've wanted to do for a long time - specifically, be somebody's besotted girlfriend! This has unfortunately also included spending a fair bit of time on trains and doing things that I didn't do very often before such as washing my hair and generally being a bit less sluttenly lazy.

He wears Givenchy Gentlemen. I'm pleased about this. 

I've been limiting my fragrance wear to predominantly a couple of scents in the hope that he will associate a special smell with me instead of the usual schizophrenic contents of the sacred scent drawers. I selected Robert Piguet's Calypso for my first date and continue to wear this rather grown up and glamourous feeling chypre for my evening dates. Serge Luten's Fleurs D' Oranger accompanies me for perky daytime optimism in the sunnier moments of our weekends.

I promise to dedicate myself back to Odiferess in May and resume normal service. I've not gone away. I just got pleasantly distracted. 

In the meantime, and in honour of the upcoming event of May Day, I'd like to direct you back to an article I wrote this time last year where I discussed one of my favourite springtime whiffs - the wonderfully peculiar scent of Hawthorn.

See you soon.


  1. I saw that pic of you and your beau in Beaumaris, or wherever that was, and thought 'What larks!' and how pleased I was that you were evidently being so pleasantly distracted. Blogging can wait. I also like the idea of your being less schizophrenic with your scent choices - I seem to be going the opposite way and wearing two at once. That may be ill-judged.

  2. It was indeed larks and I had no idea that Anglesey was so bloomin gorgeous. have you been? Lots of windswept beaches and isolated brilliance. I love caravans, they bring out my inner gypsy.
    I think this weekend I may need to introduce a third regular smell. I'm craving Vol de Nuit. I hope your wrists become anointed with a single whiff soon.

  3. The reason you had for NOT posting on your blog is much better than regular reasons other people have - work/stress/sickness/etc. - so I'm happy to read about it.

    1. Heehee!
      Thanks Undina. Work and tiredness have also played a part though they are not as much fun to read about. x
