Just to say that an article I wrote recently on my beloved Guerlain Vol De Nuit, an in-depth look at the perfume and the thematic and olfactory connections with the novel by Antoine de St.Exupery that the scent was based on ( it is such a curious, haunting and diffident creation, and one of the most enigmatic, difficult and beautiful perfumes ever made in my view), has just been published in issue three of the prize winning Odou Magazine: the piece I wrote in issue One, Perfume Haters, won the 2103 Jasmine Literary Award this year, much to my extreme delight.



It looks like it will be a very interesting issue, and you can either order a ‘physical’ paper copy or digital version at the website.
