Christos, a Greek perfume lover and blogger is a scientist by trade who recently moved across Europe from Athens to Geneva, Switzerland, which is why his blog, Memory of Scent, is seldom updated these days. But when it is, it is always a fantastic read and his archives are well worth exploring. I admire Christos’s approach to perfume as well as his amazing photos.
A good day starts with… a cup of good coffee. And Toupée, my cat waking me up to be fed.
I’d never leave the house without… Perfume, what else? Lately I am making sure I also take an umbrella.
I always feel good when… I have something new to work on and something I expect in the mail.
My favorite thing in the world is… not a thing.
The next thing I want to buy is… Nasomatto Hindu Grass.
The place I always come back to is… having recently moved to a new country I try not to think in these terms.
My personal style is… intuitive.
My favorite perfume… changes according to the situation I am living. Currently, Jacomo Silences.
When I travel I always… feel frustrated. I need to have more 50ml bottles.
To relax I need… time for myself.
When I have a bad day… I need to switch off.
I like to gift people with… things they like but not need.
I find my inspiration… analysing why I feel what I feel.
Something I would never want to miss… moments spent with people I love.
My last mistake was… something I have already forgotten about. Mistakes are only deviations from the original course and sooner or later we are back in track.
In my fridge there is always… Swiss cheese.
On my nightstand I keep… my mobile. It has my music in it.
The perfect weekend starts with… sunshine.
My role model is… I am not very much into roleplaying.
Something I always want to be asked in questionnaires like this is… something I am afraid to be asked (the mistake question was a bit scary…)
I am getting the feeling that being a perfume lover and having cheese in the fridge at all times must be closely related. (A question for our dear Undina perhaps? 😉 )
A cat called Toupée is beyond cute and I can very much relate to the good feeling when something is due in the mail.
Thank you , Christos, for sharing your answers with us.
Do you know Christos’s blog? Do you always have cheese in your fridge too? 😉
