Radio silence on Katie Puckrik Smells for the past week has been due to preparations for temporary relocation to London, England. It's a tad contrary for this sybarite sniffer to abandon Los Angeles just when February temps in the 70s have triggered an olfactory paradise of mock orange trees and star jasmine. But duty calls -- duty in this case being nudging a handful of professional prospects into full flower. But let's not be coy -- I'll cite any excuse to justify time in one of my most beloved cities with some of my dearest friends.
I'll be here for three months, and as well as continuing to report on my perfume findings via words and vids, I'll also be launching another blog to cover my style and culture discoveries. Details forthcoming...
Thank you, dear fumies, for being stowaways on this next adventure.
