When I’m not writing about food, I write about perfume. I’m not even going to try to be humble about this one – I won a Jasmine Award (one of the beauty industry’s most prestigious gongs) yesterday for this article, and my feet absolutely haven’t touched the ground since.
I plan to spend the rest of today sitting very still and looking at my trophy.

Congratulations! That’s a great article. Savour your victory.
Hooray for you!
I can’t help wishing I had had a Stinkor to play with when small…
Well done, great article! I didn’t realise you wrote about opera too… I’m currently writing my 2nd opera.
Anyway, well done again!
Nice one – congratulations!
A quick glance at this post title had me imagining you basting a lovely golden chicken.
Your sense of smell is obviously as highly developed as your taste buds.
Congrats and that.
Huzzah! Here’s to you and here’s to Stinkor!
Thanks very much, everybody! And as Cait says, hurrah for Stinkor, without whom and all that.
Oh, cool, I didn’t know you wrote about perfume! Nice article. I like musks, but I am strangely anosmic to some of them – I can’t smell Musc Koublai Khan at all. Sigh.
Do you find a lot of crossover between your appreciation of perfume and food? I tend to pick up a lot of fragrance notes in wine, which can either be fantastic or slightly weird.
Congratulations on the award!
My favourite line: ‘velvet, suede and ostrich-feather type of brothel…’
You did win after all!
Well done and congrats 🙂
