Back from vacation and into the perfume social whirl of San Francisco Fumantics! Last night at Books Inc. on Van Ness Avenue just north of our Belle Epoque inspired Beaux-Arts Civic Center author and blogger (Yesterday’s Perfumes:http://www.yesterdaysperfume.com/ ) Barbara Herman came to read from her book Scent & Subversion: Decoding A Century of Provocative Perfumes. The event was a smashing success and Ms. Herman was a delight. Gallons of vintage perfume was sniffed and a ton of books were sold. Here is my video blog of the event.
