    Delighted to say that I won the 2010 Jasmine Literary Award for writing about perfume (or fragrance, or scent, or as one girlfriend called it -- the relationship didn't last -- "expensive frivolity").  The prize is sponsored by the Fragrance Foundation and was for this piece in The Independent.

    Having been captivated by perfumes since my first trip to Grasse when I was 6 or 7, I am absurdly chuffed.

    I just read your article on the destruction of eastern Jermyn Street and the construction of the 'St James's Gateway' [or 'The Licence to Print Rental Income Money from Skyscrapers in the Name of Dr Bollocks'] and think that it is spiffing and wizard, old bean; spiffing and wizard and just my cup of tea - and then I recalled that you're the journo who taught a monocled Prussian friend of mine (the late Christoph Schliack) how to lunch on Guinness Because It Is Good For You, in between pen-caps of F&T Old Paris snuff.
