Hello beautiful humans..
It has been rather an eventful day today but, what concerns fragrance, I had made a mistake on choosing Feminite du Bois by Serge Lutens as my
I woke up around 5am and felt like Miss Dior Le Parfum… but it must have been too early or God knows for what reason I went for Feminite du Bois… Do not get me wrong, it is a lovely perfume! However, it didn’t give me pleasure or excitement that I was expecting, purely due to its longevity and sillage.. Dior’s Le Parfum would have done the job, mainly because it is one of my favourites and I know it… Well, I’ve made my choice and had to deal with the consequences…. I will give Feminite du Bois another go at some stage, maybe on a more quite, romantic day… 😉
2. Little discoveries of the day
Milk in Lithuania tastes different from one in Ireland.. It is way sweeter and not as tart…
I was passing by a chocolate factory in my hometown…and it definitely does not smell the same as it used to when I was growing up…
But the hospitality of a Lithuanian family is still the same great. There’s a table already set with the best china on it at your arrival. There’s the best homemade cake on it, too. And then the conversation just flows naturally because you know you’re welcomed there…
3. Something to be thankful for
I took two train rides today and, as the wifi was acting up, I was quite happy to put all the gadgets away and open a book…. Not a kindle… An actual book 🙂 …This rarely happens, and I sometimes forget how much I can be attached to technology… I am thankful today for the simple things in life. Simple, yet powerful.
Also, I am beginning to realize, the more kindness and generosity I notice around me and start feeling thankful for it, the more it multiplies…. Could this be a magic trick?.. 🙂 ❤
Finally, I am closing this day with another fragrance from Serge Lutens – Ambre Sultan… Just a beautiful dry, balsamic amber to fix the first misfortune… It worked 🙂
