Our thirteenth Blog of the Week award goes to the brilliantly witty perfumista (and TV presenter of ‘The Word’ fame) Katie Puckrik of the eponymous ‘Katie Puckrik Smells‘.
Katie’s a blogger that truly knows her fragrance stuff. When she bashes scents that she doesn’t like, she does it in a tongue-in-cheek, informative way. When she says that she really likes a scent, you wholeheartedly believe that she truly does – and all of this is presented in her own fantastically left of the field way. She’s knowledgeable, incredibly funny, and is always a great read after a particularly sluggish day. And being a TV presenter her videos are not only eloquent and informative, but delivered in a very confident and witty style.
One of the things I love most about Katie as a blogger is her use of words. I’m as much a sucker for the flowery way she describes the arrival of spring as “nature’s shy little riot”, as I am her brutal and spot-on snarky honesty when describing a scent as having a “shy uptick of rose and amber amidst the killing fields of soap, soap and more soap (that) does signal the beginnings of a personality, if not quite a spine”. Brilliant.
Our favourite post of all time here in the Escentual offices has to be Katie’s first-time try of the infamous Etat Libre d’Orange Secretions Magnifiques. It’s a definite absolutely love or absolutely hate scent – but Katie’s reaction is priceless! Take a gander at the hilarity right here.
If you’re into your fragrances, Katie’s blog is an absolute must-read. Take a look at Katie Puckrik Smells right here.
