Jean Claude Ellena wrote a short olfactory tale some years ago describing his impressions at Christmas. Au Féminin has reprinted it....
You can read the perfumer's evocation of Christmas smells here (in French). Don't you think that the Ellena family's habit to slip a flacon of perfume in the napkin of each guest is a great idea to enhance the celebration? I am thinking of surprising my guests in the same way.
