Here are some sample cards from my quick visit to Brown Thomas the other day.

I had a chance to finally try these, and two days later the scents still linger on very strong.

[I must also say, the fragrance community is very influential 😀 ]

And here are my favorites from the trip: 🙂
Maison Lancome – Parfait de Roses, Oud Bouquet
Tom Ford – Cafe Rose, Noir de Noir

It is amazing how weather can affect your sense of smell… Especially, skin’s chemistry with perfume…

Perfume Portraits – Grand Soir by Maison Francis Kurkdjian

Hello Spring! 🙂 What a delight it is to finally have you with us 🙂

The unexpected treat today was +18 C and blue skies in Ireland. At the end of February it is rather impressive 🙂

#scentoftheday undoubtedly was the majestic balsamic amber – Grand Soir by Maison Francis Kurkdjian. I love its smoothness and warmth…

Perfume Portraits – ROADS

New Year – new beginning – new themes on the blog! 🙂

Introducing Perfume Portraits – the new heading for 2019! And to kick start it – a little duo from Roads.

Roads is an Irish niche perfume company. I have noticed them stocked at Harvey Nichols store in Dundrum Town Center in Dublin. And luckily enough I managed to snatch these babies at a local TK Maxx store for a fraction of a price.

Roads – Graduate 1954. Parfum, launched in 2014.

Tell Me More About Barcelona…

This morning saw the end of another storm in Ireland. It was still wet and very windy, even though the worst was already over. I blind picked a sample, spritzed it on my wrists, and ran off to work…

Olfactive Voyages – Jo Malone

– What was my fragrant journey with Jo Malone’s perfumes like? – I ask myself. And yet I cannot answer, as there has never been a proper beginning… But the perfume, it was always there.

My Midnight Burberry

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…

So, this late night when the moon is bright like never before, I reached for My Burberry shower oil.img_1794 Continue reading “My Midnight Burberry”

Collector alert!

Just a quick note to folks traveling to / near Dublin – House of Fraser store in Dundrum Town Centre (exit 13 off M50) has a very few sales items left, including Christmas gift boxes. But the ones I would recommend you to seek and grab while they’re still there are Annick Goutal and Serge Lutens perfumes. Majority – half price.
