Hello, my perfume lovers…
1. and 2. As there was no #SOTD today (OMG, I know! 🙂 ), I went to my beloved Kristiana and sampled first two perfumes that attracted my eye, so here you are, two beauties and two little discoveries:
Jeroboam – Insulo.
A beautiful bottle, love the font too, reminds me of something Arabic. The fragrance itself is extrait de parfum, however after 6-7 hours I cannot smell anything on my skin.. (yet, it could be me…) Perfume notes are: vanilla, jasmine, musk. It was quite sharp as I recall it. It might sit better on a man, but who am I kidding, even young men now wear Chanel no.5 parfum! (have seen today with my own eyes!) Insulo didn’t transport me anywhere.. However it is a pleasant enough perfume. 30ml for 99eu… I’d say try before purchasing… 🙂
Rance 1795 – Eleonore.
Now this oriental vanilla is a different story. It started off as citrusy flower bouquet…and then changed and changed and changed.. amber-patchouli-vanilla-sandalwood… 7hrs on, and still there is a gentle touch of it on my wrist… Funnily enough, it actually reminds me of my first ever deodorant that I got as a present from my God Mother.. I never thought I still had that memory in me… That strange orange-amber smell, I always thought it was orange..maybe because its can was orange colour… Anyhow, Eleonore settles down into a calm, gentle, and peaceful vanilla incense… A very lady like perfume, very easily likable. 50ml bottle for the same price as Jeroboam..
3. Something to be thankful for
You know, I might be going too deep into philosophy when I am on this project… And I find myself observing and evaluating life around me in a more intense manner than, let’s say, at home… But I am beginning to realize more and more each day that nothing is given to you in life without a fight… Don’t take me too literally. By nothing I mean – everything that you hope for, wish for, anything that you imagine for your future… And by a fight I mean – hard work, putting long hours in, or to some it could even be with a price of a broken heart.. So, whatever it is you want in life, you will have to put your heart and sweat in….
As my friend says, a prince on a white horse will not come looking for you if you’re sitting there in a bathrobe, all messy and dirty, thinking – ‘whatever is meant for me will find me’… 🙂 you might be not worthy of that prince just yet… 🙂
So here I am.. thankful for this project…as it projects some different light in my life.
Good night peeps, until tomorrow.
