I have a philosophy for vacations. Rather than exploring a country, or even a city, I advocate settling into one small space. Pick a neighborhood and walk out to the bookstore or the bakery or the museum or the gallery - whatever makes the neighborhood what it is. Any vacation that doesn't allow time for sitting for two hours over lunch with a book is a mis-planned vacation.
So I've been spending much of my perfume exploration in specific perfume "neighborhoods". The classic or classically-styled greens. Most everything by Parfumerie Generale and Serge Lutens. Tea scents. The Crazy. (Exemplified by L'Artisan Dzing!, Lutens Tubereuse Criminelle, BPAL The Malignant Dreams of Cthulhu in Love, Aftelier Cepes & Tuberose.)
I enjoy this, and it will always be my main mode of perfume exploration. But I sometimes think that I should try the equivalent of the ten-cities-in-seven-days tour, for at least one Perfumed Court order, and catch up on some of the perfumes and houses that I've ignored.
