With a heavy heart I must admit, I have been away for a long while, not able to write another post..
Though there rarely has been a day without perfume, however, the biggest struggle was putting the words together. To be honest with you, I feel like I have lost that enlightenment, that sensation of joy when a new perfume comes out. I have lost the desire to know what it would make me feel like that day.. This was partly because very many perfumes, especially new releases, started smelling nearly exactly the same…overly sweet lavender caramel… 🙂 But this inability to write also got me thinking..
At the end of the day, people when asked about their ultimate goal in life tend to look for happiness. However, there will never be a big chunk of it sitting and waiting at the end of the road.. The little pieces of happiness, I think, we pick up every single day. It is the matter of learning how to keep them, let them build up, so that we could be happy with ourselves every single day throughout the journey… And the hardest part for me at that moment was finding that happy place hidden inside, and sustaining it.. A place of inner silence where I would know – the outside world is only the reflection of my thoughts and my state of mind…
We grow and learn and move on through struggles, challenges, and experiences. However, that part of learning from experiences and moving on we tend to forget.. So, here I am, moving on…
Finally, on a lighter note 🙂 , yesterday I uncovered a long forgotten beauty – George Rech Muse Poudree, created by perfumer Thierry Romeo. It helped me awaken that quiet feeling inside.. 🙂
The fragrance itself, if you haven’t tried it before, is powdery sweet, with tones of bergamot, violet, cedar, and over time developing into a soft vanilla / musk skin scent. For some reason I always associate it with a baby pink cashmere sweater 🙂 I have seen Georges Rech perfumes in Ireland only at TK Maxx stores, and they are not that dear (www.allbeauty.com lists Muse Poudree at 12£ – 15€ for a 100ml). However, I am still amazed that Fragrantica has a very small database about this brand, especially when the perfumes are so lovely.. 🙂 ❤ Check out Parfumo Community for more information on Georges Rech fragrances 🙂
It is a beautiful autumn outside, a sunny and warm day today, and I am so grateful for being a part of this wonderful world around me..
Sending love to you all,
