Virgile Sylvaine Delacourte Review

In modern perfumery, it's not easy to find a fragrance that is unlike anything else. When any successful fragrance is analyzed and then replicated by several brands at once, when thousands of new products are released every year, unique fragrances among them are like a needle in a haystack. (OK, let's say, unique and interesting.) Fragrances to which we would say, "There is nothing to compare ...

Thanks for not breaking our heart.

I set out in the snow to do my sunrise run, and I made it to my vantage point, which looked like this:   No sun to see. 100% overcast. And the snow wasn't stuck to the trees, so no "winter wonderland" effect. Just deep snow on the ground, making the run something of a trudge. But as I approached my vantage point, down along the shore, I saw a man and woman up ahead, and they'd slowed down and were slowing stamping about.  I had to overtake them, and my normal method is to get as far ...

Lost touch: how a year without hugs affects our mental health

Humans are designed to touch and be touched – which is why so many who live on their own have suffered during the pandemic. Will we ever fully recover?There’s only so much a dog can do, even if that is a lot. I live alone with my staffy, and by week eight of the first lockdown she was rolling her eyes at my ever-tightening clutch. I had been sofa-bound with Covid and its after-effects before lockdown was announced, then spring and summer passed without any meaningful touch from another person. I...
