New Post On Ça Fleure Bon: Perfumes Fit For A Future King - And Queen - And The Sweet Smell Of Succession...

I am travelling in Germany at the moment - on a trip of such modest proportions and relative logistical ease that I felt it didn't warrant the designation "bonkers" this time. And meanwhile over on Ça Fleure Bon my latest post appeared yesterday, a day earlier than scheduled, but it happened to coincide with the Queen's actual birthday, if my memory serves me, which seems rather fitting. My royal-themed post is a bit of a monster this month word countwise, so you may wish to make a drink and a snack before sitting down to read it.

I am just off now to meet in Lüneburg, so I daresay the subject of perfume will inevitably come up at some point...! And there will also be a sniffing report from Berlin's finest emporia when I get back, and possibly also one from Düsseldorf, asuming I make it down there tomorrow before the shops shut. : - )

Pity you're so far up north... Please let me know if one of those trips happens to take you anywhere near Switzerland or Baden-Württemberg (Mannheim / Heidelberg / Freiburg, that area). Would love to meet up! Have a good trip!

Hello Vanessa,

I'm hoping that you're enjoying German Easter treats whilst you're there.

Take care, and Happy Easter:-)

cheerio, Anna in Edinburgh

Hi potiron,

Just heard word while I have been away that at least one of the target companies in my study is in Switzerland, so I may well take you up on that!

Hi Anna,

Thanks for that! As it happens, gave me a chocolate Lindt bunny as she was seeing me off at the train station. Most remarkably he has withstood the incredible heat today and yesterday - meanwhile, I have to report that my emergency bar of Penny Markt chocolate is looking a trifle floppy.
