The very first time I tried it, it must have been around 2013 or so.. And I got such a punch in my nose from it! I hated it, to be honest, as it was too overpowering! It was giving me headaches, and I couldn’t understand what all the fuss was about… Continue reading “The Many Faces Of Black Orchid”

Today was the very first day I ever saw the thermometer bar reach 30 C heat in Ireland… After ten years, I can hardly remember what that feels like… Our usual Irish weather would be a balmy 16 C, rain or shine.. ok ok, sometimes we would get an odd 20 C, but only for a day or two… This time, the record breaking heat wave is set to stay with us for another two weeks!

Esxence Diary – Renier Perfumes

There are scents which I still love since my early days. Like a scent of rain on a hot summer day.. Or a scent of freshly ironed, steamed clothes.. Or a smell of freshly picked raspberries from a forest… Or that weirdly attractive scent at the shoe repairs… πŸ™‚ Also, I’ve always had an attachment to water colours, and painting in general. And for me as a kid, the best time to paint was when it was raining.. (Now, let me remind you, that was the pre-computer, pre-smart phone era…. πŸ™‚ when apart from going to school, and a couple of chores at home, kids had pretty much all the free time to play outside… πŸ™‚ )
