Dame Kylie Minogue as the Green Fairy
The loveliest thing happened yesterday. My dear friend Hilary asked me to stop into Barney’s yesterday on my way downtown to my dinner and movie date with friends. She said she had a special present for me.
When I wrote my review of Al Oudh by L’Artisan Parfumeur: http://sentsmemory.wordpress.com/2012/11/05/i-dream-of-genie-al-oudh-by-lartisan-parfumeur-paris/ Hilary who represents the perfume house at Barney’s sent the review along to the powers that be at L’Artisan Parfumeur headquarters in Paris. It turns out they loved the review and sent along a thank you present just in time for Christmas.

I was gobsmacked by the gesture and floored when I opened the gift. The lovely people in Paris sent me a 100 m bottle of Fou D’Absinthe and to add to this delight they included a bottle of the Gel Parfume pour la Douche bath gel and Lait Parfume Pour le Corps bath milk.
I hugged Hilary and was quite frankly rendered a little tongue tied and speechless. What a lovely thing for the people at L’Artisan Parfumeur to do just because I wrote a favorable review for there perfume. So you can bet I will be sending them a thank you note filled with gratitude and love.
An unbiased and clearheaded review is in store for Fou D’Absinthe, but I need a few days to clam down!
What a perfectly lovely Christmas and birthday season this has been. Thank you Hilary and L’Artisan Parfumeur.
