What are you sniffing at?

December 5, 2009

Sometimes I get to do silly things in the guise of interviewing people, like hang out at a department store sniffing perfumes, which is one of my favourite frivolous ways to while away an afternoon anyway. (See?)

Ok, that only happened for an interview one time, and it was for this story in today’s paper about actress Patricia Fagan and her playwright husband Adam Pettle and how we hung out and talked perfume because of the current Soulpepper production of Parfumerie, which is the Hungarian play upon which the wonderful Ernst Lubitsch film The Shop Around the Corner is based. (Also, the less wonderful You’ve Got Mail.) You should go to see the play, because it will charm your pants off.

We had a lovely time sniffing perfume, and if anyone wants to buy me a very expensive Christmas present I would certainly not sneeze at a little bottle of Annick Goutal’s Petite Cherie. Just saying.
