Saturday Snippet – Eau des Merveilles by Hermes

A quick snap of one of the most refreshing summer scents in my fragrance wardrobe – juicy, spicy, fruity, woody – Eau Des Merveilles by Hermes. I always feel like with a box of salty bitter oranges in my face when I wear it 🙂

What is your favorite summer fragrance?

Take me to the Woods, Xeryus!

Here is something I have never thought I would write: green, aromatic, woody freshness and sweetness – Xeryus from Givenchy took over my hot summer perfume choices this week.

Feels like a walk in a forest on a dewy summer morning. Fresh and peaceful.

Masculine? Quite, yes. But as masculine as Eau des Marveilles by Hermes, or Pomelo by Jo Loves… Or any other salty, aquatic, woody scent… The heat in the air smooths it all out..

Are you a fan of opposite sex perfumes? Do you still read the labels anymore? 🙂 And if so, would you go for something totally different (fragrance wise) if it wasn’t for the label?

I am very curious… 🙂

Take me to the Woods, Xeryus!

Long Lost Scents – Stash SJP

Stash SJP by Sarah Jessica Parker is an ideal summer scent in Ireland for me.

As we are approaching the hottest days this year, 25 C degrees is not that hot compared to other countries…. However, it is scorching for people who are not used to this kind of heat. A win-win situation – spend your day at the beach and wear your best summer fragrance! 🙂

And my choice is so perfect for just that. Stash SJP as an aromatic woody scent has a vibe of sunscreen lotion and oud! I feel like swimming in a bath with coconuts and other fruits, eating ice cream, and enjoying a breezy, refreshing woody aromas…. Yes – fruity, creamy, cooling and warming at the same time – Stash SJP has it all.

I remember purchasing Stash SJP as it just came out, so must be somewhere around 2016 – 2017. It is of great quality after all these years, and for the fraction of the price compared to other designer brands.

According to Fragrantica, Stash SJP “begins with notes of fresh grapefruit, black pepper and aromatic sage. Its heart notes include Atlas cedar, patchouli, ginger lily and pistachios, laid on the warm woody base of olibanum, massoia wood, vetiver and musk”. So no coconuts or oud there, I am afraid! 🙂 But I think it definitely performs better on a hot day…. 🙂

Three days in a row with the same scent – it is a winner for me after all 🙂

Have you tried Stash SJP yet? What are your thoughts?

Lovely Day For Rose Prick

Well… it is my favourite 🙂 Along with rose – oud… 🙂 Whenever I divert to other perfume notes, overtime I still circle back to my basics. And Rose Prick has hit the spot in my day today 🙂

Visiting Morocco – Tauer Perfumes

There are days that have moods. And then there are perfumes that fit those moods. Choosing a wrong perfume could ruin a lot… On the other hand, choosing the right one feels like it completes the picture – and you wouldn’t have it any other way.
