SCENTSPY
for perfume reviews and interviews, by Huda Jaber

Aside from being the coldest month of the year (it certainly feels that way at least), February is also the month of St Valentine, and therefore a month to be romanced, or in any case a month to romanticise. I’ll be ignoring the usual Hallmark appreciation day festivities, and instead discuss a couple of perfumes that lend themselves the theme of romance. From simple things like the romance of white flowers (try to give your loved one a bunch of tuberose this year, and skip the roses), to harder intangible fragrances that sought to capture the addictive nature of female sensuality, I’ll be posting what I think romance and perfume mean.
