AN ANNIVERSARY ~ Scents Memory Celebrates!

happy birthday chanel

Well can you believe it? Scents Memory has been up and running for a whole year now. My Paper Anniversary. I want to thank all my 163 readers for following along on my olfactory journey.  It has been so much fun and work and then fun again and we will be going on to more reviews and assorted memories in the future.

However, it is Summer here in San Francisco so that means time to bundle up and put some logs on the fire and take a bit of a vacation.  So for the next few weeks I will be off doing some rest and recuperation and charging my creative batteries. So in the meantime check out some of my blog links for some good reading. Everything from Victoria Gent up in Sunny Seattle on EauMG though the delightful musings of Portia and the gang down south in Sydney at The Australian Perfume Junkies and of course my darling Vickie Lester at Beguiling Hollywood. And no blog jog would be complete without a pop over to London to for tea and a chat with The Perfumed Dandy. And for you fashionistas please check out Garance Dorés delightful blog and her husband Scott at his blog The Sartorialist.  There are lots more to check out so just look to your right and scroll down for more links.

So for now a nice warm scented bath and then off I sail in my barge of gold for my little stay at home vacation.

  See you all in a few weeks!

Love Always,

  20. Happy Anniversary, and congratulations on a year of great writing and much pleasure for your readers! I hope you enjoy your time off. I never understood about summer being the cold season in SF. I need to visit SF before I get too old and need a walker. I suppose I could wheel up and down those hills in my motorized wheelchair. That’s a thought. Anyway, thank you again, Mr. Lanier, for all the great fragrance reading! Best wishes. L.

  21. Happy anniversary! I wish you all the best and new, great stories! It is really a pleasure to read them.

  22. You had a BIRTHDAY!! Happy day. Congratulations! You are amazing and I wish I could write even a quarter as well as you Lanier. You are so inspiring.
