I am facing a very busy week with lots of projects ahead of me, so PST will be taking a break till Tuesday, June 10th. Before we go though, I would like to have a prize draw, the entries for which will be accepted till Sunday, June 8th. If you would like to win a set of samples consisting of: Hermes Un Jardin Apres La Mousson, Montale Red Vetiver, Vanilla Extasy and Ginger Musk, Comme de Garcons Monocle Hinoki, Micallef Aoud, Gaiac, Patchouli, Note Vanillee and Royal Muska, Editions de Parfum Bois d'Orage, Etat Libre d'Orange Rossy de Palma...leave us a comment!

Have a great week, everybody!

Please take the obviously necessary break (during which your daily blogging will be missed). Please enter me in the drawing as well, and I believe that you dated the end time for it incorrectly (you wrote "May" instead of "June").

A comment... it's the end of the schoolyear and I just feel like going out of the classroom and walking around for hours. I want to get into perfume shops and smell the summer scents. I want to go far away to a place that smells so very different to mine... But I must be patient. I must wait. (and I'll wait for the draw too if you count me in!)

I don't imagine you want to send prizes to the UK (postage - ouch!) but I wanted to show solidarity during your busy time ... and this will give me time to look up "sillage" and "aoud":-)

Hope your projects work out well. I'm in Houston for a client, where the humidity is shocking. I brought Prada Iris, which is doing a good job. Holds up well and isn't overpowering.

M. I have been in a horrible crisis. I have heard of this happening to people before but I never thought this would happen to me. I have lost my passion for fragrance. Oh, I still wear it and love it but it seems that for the past 6 months, I haven't found anything new to excite me. I am literally in a FUNK! I was telling Tom that I have tried several times to review things but realized that they would come off mean spirited and hateful (my $50 worth of Neil Morris samples for example...hated them!). I just felt that if I didn't have anything nice to say, well you know how it goes.

Please enter me into your contest. Who know, something may knock my socks off!
