holiday fragrance wishlist

o.4569Picture 1Being a perfumer, there are many days I come home and want little to do with scented products. If all of the bath products I had were unscented, that'd be fine with me. But despite my tired nose most days, I can't help but think that fragrance is just the ultimate luxury - an invisible puff of air that just smells good. Lately I'm into extremely powdery scents. Vanilla and tonka bean laced with incense and patchouli to cut the sweet, lingering and full and reminiscent of older times.
