For the last week I have been wearing Dzintars Opera Classic every day. It is such a delicate fruity / floral perfume that I cannot get enough of… 🙂
According to Fragrantica, the top notes are Neroli, Orange and Red Berries; middle notes are Gardenia, Magnolia and Pink Peony; base notes are Honey, Blackwood and Patchouli. I think it is the magnolia, peony, and red berries that make me want to dance, and I feel so feminine when I wear it… The scent is refreshingly sweet and lasts 6+ hrs on my skin.
Also, I think I am more emotionally attached to this perfume and the brand itself, because Dzintars is the closest thing to a Lithuanian perfume in my collection… And as years go by, I am finally beginning to find something from the fragrance world that has a strong connection with me…
I purchased Opera Classic in 2017. It was the last time I got to walk the streets of Riga, Latvia. It is such a beautiful city, I have great memories from that trip. You can re-visit my short blog post about this holiday here 🙂
Dzintars, the Latvian cosmetics giant, declared bankruptcy in 2019. But by the looks of their website and social media channels, they are still operating, only with a much smaller produce, selling mainly sun creams and body care products, no perfumes unfortunately. They do deliver to European countries, so it is worth checking out if you are interested.
Have you heard of Dzintars before? Or maybe you have a favourite scent? 🙂

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 🙂
Catching the last rays of today’s sunlight through a bottle of aromatic winter.
The Burren Perfumery and its masterpiece – Winter Woods. This fragrance is so versatile! It is at the same time warm and cooling, herbal and woody, so I find it very easy to wear at any time of the year.
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.
02 L’Air du Desert Marocain by Tauer Perfumes carries a strong, masculine tone. It took me a while to find the right mood for this scent.
