My intention was to review David Yurman’s eau de parfum this week. I purchased a 30 ml. bottle recently and my initial tests revealed that it was pretty good for its genre and that it got a bum rap from Tania Sanchez in the 2nd edition of the Guide. But I kind of ran out of time and I also wanted to put it up against other rose chypres like Estée Lauder’s Knowing and Paloma Picasso before I rendered my final judgement… so I promise to get back to you all about it next week.
I spent most of my free time this week putting the finishing touches on a presentation that I’m giving at a local library on perfume, notably its history and classification. I’ll be passing around scent strips while I’m giving the presentation so that people have an idea what I’m talking about. I’m up to 20 perfumes! It’s so hard to keep the number down because I love this stuff so much… I want to show people what I am smelling. And so… my post today is a request to my readers. If you have ever attended or given a perfume presentation… how did it go? What went really well and what wouldn’t you do over again given the chance? Which perfumes are absolutely necessary when talking about perfume and which, although popular or well known, don’t really add to the discussion. I have about 10 days left before my presentation so feel free to send your comments or emails (normandtpc at hotmail dot com) so that I can incorporate your suggestions. I’d really appreciate it!
Thanking everyone in advance… and have a nice week!
