It was a little over a year ago when I traveled to the south of France with a desire to learn more about perfume and the history behind it. I asked my my friend and colleague Kelly to come along with me because I had no clue about Europe. She'd been all over the world and was always down for a trip. We spent 12 days traveling to Nice, Grasse, Cannes, Monte Carlo, Ez, St.Tropez, and Provence. A year later and more passionate then ever about perfume, I booked my flight to Paris!!!! Outside of Grasse,which offers a historical perspective on perfume, Paris is the place where perfume, fashion, food, and culture, intersect. It's a must visit for the perfume aficionado and I sureley can't wait until May 2013!!!
*Side note: Two years ago I wrote my short term goals on a large sticky note and hung it on a wall in my bedroom. My goals at the time were, trips to Grasse and Paris, create a perfume blog, start a LLC, attend fragrance related events, join social media, network with other perfume lovers, and freelance for a perfume company. Today, all those goals are met, except one (the LLC).
Paris will be an entire different experience for me. I have no doubt I will return home more inspired and passionate then before!!!! In preparation for the trip, I plan to engage my twitter followers and readers some how! I have six months to plan but do stay connected to see what's in store!
