Live Coverage Of 2017 Fragrance Foundation UK Awards - But Will It Be Twitter Or Facebook?


By the time this post pops up I'll be on the way to London for tonight's Fragrance Foundation UK Awards ceremony. I hope to bring you live coverage of the event, but as I write these words, I don't know if I'll be using Facebook Live or Twitter. My preference would be the former, but it requires a strong mobile data signal, so if the technology lets me down, I'll revert to Twitter and the #TFFAwardsUK hashtag (see the widget below). Whatever happens, I'm sure you'll all find out who the winners are.

And speaking of Facebook Live, please joint me for the next instalment of Love At First Scent this Sunday, 21st May, at around 5 pm UK time. You should be able to watch it on my Facebook page (please click here).

Coming On Sunday: Love At First Scent Episode 3

You have been told

All being well, this Sunday, 21st May 2017, at around 5 pm UK time, I hope to broadcast another Facebook Live stream: the third episode of my Love At First Scent series. One of the goodies I'm hoping to unwrap is an exciting new release from Clinique. And if the postal service doesn't let me down, I should also be able to present the latest Private Blend from Tom Ford. Fingers crossed! I hope you can all make it. (UPDATE: The Private Blend has arrived... and it's all I can do to stop myself from spraying it!)

While I'm in social media promotion mode, I should also mention that I hope to bring you live coverage of Thursday night's Fragrance Foundation UK Awards. For more info, please look out for a post that's scheduled to pop up tomorrow (ie Thursday) at 10 am UK time.

Persolaise Review: Azurée D'Or from Estée Lauder (2017)


It's hard not to succumb to a sense of ennui at the interminable parade of flankers presented to us by mainstream brands these days. But when a company leaves a gap of almost 50 years between a perfume's initial release and the appearance of its first bona fide follow-up, you can't help but experience a measure of curiousity. Cue: Azurée D'Or, the brand new companion to Azurée, which has been in Estée Lauder's catalogue since 1969. (Okay, strictly speaking, we did have a coconut-heavy, limited edition in 2007, but that was very short-lived and can probably be pushed to one side for the sake of today's argument.) A span of almost half a century provides a compelling opportunity to consider how certain scent codes have changed. In other words: how do we alter the style of a late 60s leather composition to bring it in line with contemporary tastes? In this case, the answer would seem to be: flush the toilet.

Persolaise Love At First Scent Episode 2 Is Now On YouTube


Last Friday's episode of Love At First Scent is now on YouTube, so you can watch it either by clicking above or going to the YouTube site (please click here). I had great fun with this particular broadcast, not least when we touched on the subject of Bat from Zoologist and I got some chuckle-raising comments from viewers. Amongst the other perfumes I sniffed were: Persian Saffron from Zegna, Gelsomini Di Capri from Carthusia and the gorgeous new Ylang Ylang from E Coudray.

The original video is still on Facebook (click here), which is where you'll find the comments left by viewers during the live stream.

Persolaise Love At First Scent Episode 1 On YouTube + Next Facebook Live Is This Friday!


The Facebook Live broadcast I streamed on Friday is now on YouTube, so you can watch it right here (see above) or if you prefer to watch it on the YouTube page, please click here. I managed to cover quite a few scents, including the new Oud Essentiel from Guerlain, as well as Andy Tauer's Hyacinth And A Mechanic, which forms part of his intriguing Story trio of fragrances. You'll have to watch the video to find out why I say "intriguing"...

The video is still on Facebook, so you could watch it right there, of course, especially if you'd like to see the comments and discussion it generated. Click here to be taken to my Facebook page.

Technology and gremlins permitting, this Friday will see me deliver another Facebook Live broadcast, this time at around 3:00 pm (UK time). I wasn't planning to do the next one quite so soon, but I'll explain why I've changed my mind during the broadcast.

Hope to see you there,

Persolaise
