Nostalgia is a funny thing
08/12/08 11:03 AM

I'm rather resistant to the idea that people were much different fifty or a hundred years ago -- classier, smarter, etc. I think the majority of people are just as vulgar, silly, nasty, etc., as we always were -- of course I do read Austen a lot.

I recently read a couple of articles at Basenotes deriding the idea that one can wear too much scent, and I was a bit put off. Of course one can! I ride crowded subways on a regular basis; it would be incredibly inconsiderate of me to overdo the perfume. I went to school with a woman who had asthma attacks when people wore strong fragrances around her; I saw her mid-attack once, and it was awful. I don't think the modern concern about personal space is unreasonable or silly at all. I'm exploring fragrances for my own enjoyment; I don't want people to be able to smell me until they get quite close. That may not be the way people wore perfume in decades past, but what of it?

My leather samples from TPC came today (finally!) and I'm trying out the extrait of Tabac Blond. Perhaps this is the reformulation? I love it, whatever it is.

Reddish brown hair, pale warm-toned skin with freckles, green eyes.
