Happy 2011! I hope that this year will brings lots of happiness, health and fortune to all. For our perspective, I hope that we will have many new interesting perfumes to smell and will enjoy another interesting year of memorable discoveries.
What did you do for New Year’s Eve? Do you have any specific New Year’s Eve celebration traditions that you follow?
And more importantly, with what fragrance did you greet 2011?
While our friends braved the crowds to see the ball drop in Times Square, we stayed at home and had dinner near the fireplace. We watched Peter Sellers’ The Party, while making tortellini and a gingerbread trifle. While we had to wait till the next year for our dinner to be finished, we had lots of champagne to tide us over. Lately, these kinds of laid-back, simple celebrations are my favorites. I wore my new black and pink dress and L’Artisan Parfumeur Traversée du Bosphore. I selected it both for its vibrant blend of roses and violets on a plush base of smoky woods and amber and for its name. There is something very alluring about crossings of all types. Let our crossing into the new year be a special and memorable one!
