London Calling, Katie Answering




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.

  4. Katie Puckrik + London, England = a perfect match! Perhaps one might be so bold as to suggest you take a sniff at the new Stella McCartney L.I.L.Y.?

    1. One may be so bold. I'll pop it on my "to sniff" list.

    2. Yay! I know it was recently launched in the UK and won't be available in the US until September or thereabouts and I guess it'll be even longer before it hits the shelves in Denmark. Therefor, I thank thee, Puckrik, for the oppertunity to smell vicariously through you.

  9. If you are going on a smellathon in the west end area, make sure you go to the Parfums de Nicolai shop if you have never been: it's on the Brompton Road, handily placed between l'artisan parfumeur and the chanel boutique. It's my favourite perfume shop by far.

  18. Hope the climate shock was not too great and that you are prepared for all our weathers (in one weekend, even!)

    I am sure you will feel right at home in your old stomping grounds. : - )
