Oh, goodness. Is it REALLY April 27? Where did the month go and wow! the Antiu draw results are way overdue. I’m sorry about that.. (And I hope that I haven’t given anyone a tick waiting for me to tell you who won). So, without further ado, first things first:

Now on to today: I’m on my way to NYC to start my ‘sniffa week’ which includes presenting new designs at Sniffapalooza Spring Fling 2001 on Saturday as well as catching up with lovely friends and family while I’m there. I can’t begin to tell you how much I have been looking forward to this… if nothing less than to enjoy New York in Spring time, which is truly one of my favorite things. The City and Central Park are at it’s loveliest, I feel, in April and May. Just thinking of it makes my eyes glow with warmth and brings a smile of delight to my face. There will be some great surprises in store over this weekend and I can’t wait to share them with you, since one of the great things about traveling is that although there are many wonderful distractions to occupy and inspire me, it’s nothing like the many, MANY distractions of the studio and regular life. So, I am looking forward to spending some extra time here with the blog and sharing great (and horrible?) new scents from this weekend. I hope that for others, my new launches (Vert pour Madame, Bancha Extreme – the all-botanical sequel to last Spring’s Bancha, and a preview of 1,000 Lilies eau de Parfum) will be among the highlights of the weekend.
And as an added bonus, I will certainly let you know if ‘scout’, my brother & sister in law’s cat, loves or hates anything in particular. She has a knack for choosing the quality from the dreck; eschewing was doesn’t please with a sneer of her snaggletooth and turning her butt toward the offending aroma or coming closer and attempting lick the sensuous delight from your wrist or fingers or arm with relish. She really has an incredibly discerning nose and is funny, to boot. One day I will make a video of her judging perfumes, which is hilarious. She is my true friend and, in some ways, a kindred spirit.
More to come from my old stomping grounds… and Spring time love to everyone! oxo~ D
