Professionally a scientist. An avid perfumista. Obsessed with the subjective side of perfume. Originally from Athens, Greece, currently living in Geneva, Switzerland. Fellow blogger Ari of Scents of Self was kind enough to interview me for her blog so this is who I am! Birgit kindly interviewed me here.
Perfume is genderless but this blog displays views and reviews from a man’s perspective. Any gender specific mentions are only used to emphasize that perfume is genderless.
This is not a blog with perfume reviews of the latest releases. This is a blog about fragrances that I like and make me feel passionate. My perfume reviews are not based on facts but are a product of my life with these perfumes, my memories of them and their impact on my life and the way I have evolved to experience perfume. There is the occasional rumbling about novelties, curiosities, vanities and obsessions. Most of all please keep in mind what my friend Suzanne of Eiderdownpress has so eloquently confessed. It applies to me so I copy with respect and admiration:
“Qualifications for writing about perfumes: Absolutely none, other than being a smitten fragrance fan. The reviews in my perfume journal are based on my subjective olfactory experiences. (In other words, don’t take my word for it: always sample first!)”
All reviews are based on skin wearings of perfumes that I own unless differently stated. My reviews are not promotional. Promotional samples are welcome but this does not mean that they will be reviewed favourably a priori.
