So happy for you! Xx
It is good. I am relieved!
Of course it is. Can’t wait to see it x
Wow, congratulations!! When do the rest of us see it?
The release date is the 21st of March. I hope you like it!
As we say in the Middle East, Mabrouk!! I can’t wait to read it!
I. Can’t. Wait.
Who is the publisher? Can we pre-order on Amazon? Will there be a book tour? Details, please!
I know – I should be much more self promoting! Must be enforced
Japanese modesty or something. Further details later!
Excellent, can’t wait! Especially nice to have something to look forward to in late March.
Stoked to buy a copy!
Congratulations on your creation!!
I can’t wait to devour it from cover to covet.
There was a very famous french-american 19th century salon celebrity, Nathalie Clifford-Barny who said, I quote: “ I believe in production, not in reproduction”. Famous last words!
Anyhow, I’m so happy to read you for real in the paper flesh.

Congratulations and will definitely be ordering it in March. ✨
Thanks. I will order yours too, when you have one out!
OMG! Congratulations Neil! I can’t wait to order this when it comes out. I have no signature scent as I have 300+ bottles of perfume and may never have one (although I do maintain a “top 25” list that rarely changes). I will order this book just to savor your writing and your views on perfume. I’m so happy for you!
Thanks Renee. I have always loved our exchanges. I do think this is probably best as a book for someone who knows nothing on the subject – a friend or relative you want to introduce the topic to, but it is still nice to just have in your hand and have a browse. As the title says, it is just ‘in search of’ – I am trying to ignite passion on the subject rather than create the guide to end all guides (which is impossible). I am sure you know way more perfumes than I do. I just want to revel in the SENSUOUSNESS of it all with the reader.
Bravo!! (We saw it in Vegas at the show but couldn’t buy one yet!)
YOU SAW IT IN VEGAS?!!!!!!!!
MY GOD. THE COLOURS OF IT ARE SO FITTING FOR THAT CITY!!!! HOW DID IT LOOK?
Well, it looked terrific. I picked it up as nonchalantly as possible, and said in my most jaded voice “Oh look…Neil’s book is out.” Which of course made lots of heads snap around to look. Then I just strolled out. It was perfection. Our rep will be here next week, so we’ll place our order then! Woo hoo!!
Thank you so much. (and kind of hilarious xx)
I might order myself a copy as well, just for the meta of it
Congratulations Neil! I can’t wait to read it and hope it’s readily available in the U.S.
It’s on the Amazon site, available for pre-order. I just ordered mine. SO excited. 256 pages of bliss. But the UK Amazon site says it’s 272 pages. Is there content deemed too scandalous for your American readers?
Congratulation Neil! Can’t wait to read 🙂
You are in it!
Well done! It must be such a thrill to receive it. Will look out for it.
Thank you. I’ve just pre-ordered my copy on Amazon US. We get it a tad later — April 2.
This is very, very exciting and I am SO relieved that you are happy with it. Was talking to a couple of my friends about it just the other day. X
I have pre-ordered already.
Great! Hope it also has wild and naughty bits in it! Will buy it the minute it is sold. I so very hope it‘ll be a great success: keeping my „thumbs pressed“ here in Germany.
The Narcissus is wilder, for sure.
And I will GET wilder, too.
For now, this jacketed trinket house will do.
Wonderful! Really look forward to reading it in March and I hope it’s all been worth the slog for you! I’m sure it will be for us, and that it will be a characteristically fascinating read. Many congrats!!
Well done, Neil. I really hope it sells well for you.
Congratulations!! I’m a long time very loyal reader, but not, I’m afraid, a commenter. Your writing slays me – genius! I’ve especially enjoyed the tales of your travels recently. I just pre-ordered your book from Amazon. Can’t wait! I’m an obsessive perfumista with a ludicrous number of perfumes collected over several decades, so I don’t expect to find a signature scent, but I know without doubt I’ll relish every word you’ve written. Thank you!
And thank YOU for saying this. In truth, I would have liked it to have been three or four times longer. But there are natural and commercial parameters – and hopefully it is still something of a mini treasure trove for the person who is interested.
I can’t wait for this book. I hope it’s in brick and mortar bookstores when I visit the USA at the end of April.
Definitely buying this. Congratulations!!
Ordered! How could I not?
thanks G – it has its moments
Just pre-ordered my copy from Amazon!
It’ll do for a toilet book ! Thanks for taking the plunge !
