Please welcome a new member of my perfume family – Aromatics Elixir by Clinique! 🙂

I am very happy with it 🙂 and even if it is eau de toilette, the longevity is fantastic. It does need a little bit of time to settle on my skin, while something cold and herbal (maybe it is the note of chamomile?) evaporates… But nonetheless, I love this smooth, woody, earthy perfume on me… And am very glad with this addition to the collection 🙂

I placed it in the picture together with Opium (EDP, by YSL) as they are quite similar to me.

Which of the Aromatics is your favourite? 🙂

Last Chance to Get Serge and Annick

Collector alert!

New Friend at the perfume table | ©BonjourPerfume

Just a quick note to folks traveling to / near Dublin – House of Fraser store in Dundrum Town Centre (exit 13 off M50) has a very few sales items left, including Christmas gift boxes. But the ones I would recommend you to seek and grab while they’re still there are Annick Goutal and Serge Lutens perfumes. Majority – half price.

The store is discounting the older version of Serge Lutens fragrances, all 50ml, price raging between 70 – 80 euros.

From Annick Goutal range I noticed a couple of bottles from Les Absolus collection, priced at approx. 100 euros for 100 ml (down from 200 euros), also some other of her bottles, like Petite Cherie, Songes, Sables.

Anyone still on the look out for these beauties, anyone collecting, or really craving for a true niche perfume experience that you maybe couldn’t afford before? Head to Dundrum shopping centre! Once they’re gone – they’re gone!

P.S. Prices are correct at the time of writing the blog post, 18 January, 2018.

Magic Potions

Manor of Pakruojis (Pakruojo Dvaras) – a magic potion land….
I would like to share with you a few pictures from my recent trip to this Manor in Pakruojis, Lithuania.
It is a beautiful mansion with its rich history and a special room for the in-house perfumer… I recommend to reserve a whole day for this beautiful place – it is amazing any time of the year!

Another day at the office 🙂 Scent of the day – Timbuktu by L’Artisan Parfumeur.

Borrowed from my husband’s stash… I used to think it was too strong for me, too powerful, too manly.. However, I love it now 😀 and I don’t think he’ll mind too much if I spritz this beautiful balsamic woody African beast once in a while…. 🙂 we can share! 🙂

Thank you, Bertrand Duchaufour! I am heading to check out Patchouli Patch and Nuit de Tubereuse right now! 🙂 ❤

New Year – New Beginnings

Happy New Year to you all! And thank you for coming back to this tiny blog; sometimes put aside but never forgotten.

I was blessed with the chance to visit my home country last year, spend some quality time with the people I haven’t seen for so long… A lot has changed in that country… Not only architecture and prices, but also it’s nature and people.. I probably am repeating myself about that change however it is the most visible and most perceptible thing I happened to experience during my trip. And – change is good! I am so happy to say from my own experience that not staying in one spot is always a million times better. It might take time to notice the benefits but they are definitely there 🙂

So today, with this first post in 2018, I would like invite you all to start whatever you were always afraid of starting. I invite you to be the change. Because the first step is always the hardest. And because I might also be the one who is afraid to make it…

Happy New Year, my dear friends! May it bring happiness and love around you all.

Stay safe and warm! ❤
