How does one return to blogging after an absence of several months? How does one return to perfume blogging without being utterly and totally sucked in (some might laugh at this but it is indeed a thing to fear)? How does one blog about perfume from a different hemisphere, of all things? Such questions have been roaming through my mind lately. I suppose I can say I’m well settled in my home country by now, with a fair amount of culture shock still present. I’m also unemployed and happily so as I have the privilege to reside in a most peaceful spot amongst slender pine trees, constant bird chirping, and village chimney smoke. I do, however, long for a creative outlet of sorts, and while perfume in general doesn’t quite cut it, writing about it comes the closest. You might wonder what I mean by this and rightly so. The five-year obsession as such subsided last summer, right around my trip to New York for a mini-Sniffathon with Miss Colombina. In its stead, a sober, critical observer emerged. This observer feels more or less ready to come out of slumber. In other words, if you’re still out there, dear readers, stay tuned for my random occasional ramblings, if you so desire. I will be posting when I have something to say. Your questions/comments are welcome, as always.
