My Favorite Things

I don’t care for subtlety. Understated elegance is fantastic, but for me personally louder is better in the three F’s: fragrance, fashion, and flavor. I’ll pick up on the virtues of quieter things when I can, but if that’s more your taste then keep my bias in mind when reading.

    Scentsate,
    Fun reading this and I see that you have marvelous taste. Yes, bold and stong, but some eclectic and interesting as well. Would you care to share two favorite books, or even genres – aside from perfume and fashion, of course!
    Thanks. It is always an education to read your posts.
