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?
With the beginning of 2021 I decided to start a project of revisiting my perfume collection and writing a post about my findings. It might take me a while but I think it is necessary I do so.
First of all, Bonjour Perfume blog was created for this particular reason – it was meant to be like my diary about fragrances. And second of all, as much as I love niche perfumes, I realized how closed off and limited I became – circulating probably only among ten bottles, forgetting and pushing aside all other fragrances in the collection just because they were designer scents, easily available in stores, not niche…
With a very heavy heart, I have decided to close down my blog.
It hasn’t been an easy decision, but it is for the best…
For the time being, I would like to thank everyone who stayed here with me through the years, who didn’t mind crapy pictures and were kind enough to like and comment on the posts. Thank you, from the the bottom of my heart ! ❤
I would like to share with you a new series of posts. And this time they will be dedicated to the perfume show Esxence, which took place in Milan just recently, in the beginning of April, 2018. This was the tenth anniversary of this show! 🙂 I was so lucky to attend it, and would like to share this experience with you during the next couple of weeks. Continue reading “Esxence Milan 2018”→
After a late night at the gym, all I could think of was a very hot long bath… A little ‘me’ time to let the muscles relax and put all negativity aside – how unfit / slow / weak I am if compared to others… Water is my element. I could bathe and shower for ages! I could swim in lakes and swimming pools, and paddle in the sea without ever getting bored… It is such a mood booster! Water helps me to get back to my own self…
I brought this beauty with me and today was perfect for it – the rain felt very heavy, nearly like lumps of snow, but it was warm enough and I needed something refreshing yet warming at the same time. Continue reading “Bonjour Project – Day 2”→
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. Continue reading “Cashmere Sweater”→
