I’m so honored to be in your blog today Alice! Thanks very much for sharing details behind the amazing article you wrote about me for The NY Times.


Great piece, you have a great and fun writting style. By the way, liked your comment above about the length of time a perfume lasts. I do not want to be enveloped in the same scent for eight hours. it gets boring.
Thanks for the good read.

Hi Ross, Thanks so much for the comments. For me, as a wine writer, it's a disaster to have something on my skin that has a competing scent, so natural is totally the way to go. Enjoyed looking at your blog. I often need some olfactory rescue!


Mandy! Thanks for stopping by, I'm honored, you have it wrong.

My Photo
I'm hunting the Leon Trotskys, the Philip Roths, the Chaucers and the Edith Whartons of the wine world. I want them natural and most of all, I want them to speak the truth even if we argue. With this messiah thing going on, I'm trying to swell the ranks of those who crave the differences in each vintage, celebrate nuance and desire wines that make them think, laugh, and feel. Welcome.
