Perfume News – Wild Rose by The Burren Perfumery

At the start of 2020 none of us could have predicted the extremely different year ahead. A year of a lot of uncertainty, pain, and sorrow. But also hope, kindness, and desire for change. Only through the hardship we tend to evolve, though. So, as this year is nearing the end, I am certain, each one of us have been through their own hell and back, and now more than ever we have learnt the most about ourselves, as single individuals and as a society.

Perfect Spring Scent – Splendiris by Parfums Dusita

Recently, my nose has been acting up and for a very long while I wasn’t able to enjoy many fragrances as much as I usually would… The very few scents helped me get through this time, and one of them was the wonderful creamy perfection dedicated to iris – Splendiris by Parfums Dusita.

A Quick Trip to Lithuania

Lithuania is my home country… Even though I have lived in Ireland for more than ten years now, it will always stay in my heart as home… With its fields (flat as the back of my hand), its green forests (full of wild mushrooms, delicious blueberries and raspberries, and hazelnuts), also many sky-blue lakes and rivers…

Esxence Diary – Kajal Perfumes Paris

This week I am taking my first steps into Arabic / Oriental scents with Kajal Perfumes Paris.

The Arabic world has fascinated me since my early days because it is so different from everything in the mainland Europe. Sand storms, intense heat, camels…where do I even begin?

Winter Sample Stash

It was quite an unusual November and December in relation to perfumes. I kept going through my sample stash, trying out new scents. Some became my favourites instantly, the others I will be hardly coming back to just yet… Unless, a few months later my nose will crave for something new to re-discover… 🙂
