Good Breath

Inhale deeply through your nose, expanding your stomach, for a count—one, two, three, four. As I’m readying myself for the day ahead of me, I don’t know what I’m going to wear before I pick it up and spray (or dab as with Lutens’ cloches, or roll (as with the bespoke blends made for me at Fragrance Shop New York). Sometimes the residue of what I wore to bed inspires me, or reflecting ... Read full article: Good Breath from Fragrantica Perfumes and Colognes Magazine.

Sunday Firesides: What Would My Best Self Do?

An old friend just died, and his funeral is few states away. You’re thinking about going, but the flights are really expensive, you’re slammed with work this week, and, you know, you hadn’t been in touch with him for a while anyway. You’ve decided to break up with your girlfriend, and you’re trying to decide whether to tell her in person or just send a text. Doing it face-to-face would be an appreciated gesture, but it’ll probably be super awkward, and the relationship really wasn’t that serio...

Acqua di Giò Absolu Instinct Review

The Armani Privé line debuted in the same year that Code was brought on the market; niche strands of mainstream fragrance brands are commonplace ...

Niche Perfumery and Perfumery in General

Lately I have been coming across negative comments regarding niche perfumery per se with an alarming frequency: Some say that niche perfumery will die out soon, others claim that niche perfumery is nothing but products from unskillful amateurs, or that niche is plagued by inert boredom, etc., etc. Fragrance industry expos often serve as catalysts for new rounds of such complaints.   NICHE P...

So You Are The Wali, Now What?

The way most Muslims (as well as conservative Christians and Jews) live, a man asks for a woman’s hand in marriage from the father. The father is not just a turnstile who has to say yes. He is a “wali” or protector and guardian of his daughter’s rights. So he will be asking some serious questions that would be awkward if the woman had to ask them. Furthermore, in the Muslim community today esp. in the West, there are many converts that seek out a wali because they have no male relative wh...
