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!

Winter Woods in Summer

Catching the last rays of today’s sunlight through a bottle of aromatic winter.

Winter Woods by The Burren Perfumery

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.

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.

It has been the most amazing week last week as I discovered Stella by Stella McCartney!

Long Lost Scents – Si Lolita

I wore this fragrance on St.Patrick’s Day this year as my “something green” for the parade 🙂

Well, there was no parade, of course! And I don’t think we did anything else that memorable.. It would have been fun to bring out my little one to town and see the parade, but I suppose we’ll have to wait till next year… or the one after that.

It’s a Beautiful Life – La Vie Est Belle

What a beautiful spring we are entering here now in Ireland. Sunny days with loads of trees and early spring flowers are blooming around. The traveling restrictions are being lifted a little bit, and it feels so much nicer to just walk out of the house without a fear of being caught crossing a 5km zone..

Sampling Memo Paris – French Leather

Sampling is a great way to try out a perfume on your skin and see how you feel about it and how you enjoy wearing it at different times of day and in different moods.

Changing of the seasons affect the fragrance chemistry with your skin, too. And what you would love wearing in cold winter months, you might not be as elated to choose in early spring….

Long Lost Scents – Penhaligon’s Peoneve

The other day I realized that it’s been years since I touched Penhaligon’s Peoneve last time. Well, mainly because it used to play tricks on me and I never got to enjoy the scent properly…
