I began to wear perfumes in my teens and since then it has been part of my daily routine - I am the sort of woman who feels undressed without a scent! Make-up I can do without, but not perfume : )
Over the past 40 years family and friends have complimented me on my 'sillage' - the trail of perfume I leave behind. But I cannot remember a complete stranger coming up to me, asking me what I am wearing. That is exactly what happened to me a couple of weeks ago at the Vincent van Gogh museum in Amsterdam when a young man approached me. It was a lovely compliment and it certainly helped to make my day!
Perfume is the theme of my second book, Joy's Story, which is a sequel to my first book, The Hawksley Pearls. Both stories are published together in The Scent of Success. If you love perfumes like I do, I am sure you'll enjoy my book!
