A Quick Trip to Lithuania

Lithuania is my home country… Even though I have lived in Ireland for more than ten years now, it will always stay in my heart as home… With its fields (flat as the back of my hand), its green forests (full of wild mushrooms, delicious blueberries and raspberries, and hazelnuts), also many sky-blue lakes and rivers…

Esxence Diary – Sylvaine Delacourte

For the last couple of nights I’ve been falling asleep with Sylvaine Delacourte‘s fragrances from La Collection Muscs. This is a collection of five perfumes, each embracing a different relationship with musk. I find them calming, soothing.. Just perfect for testing and a good night’s rest…

Magic Potions

Manor of Pakruojis (Pakruojo Dvaras) – a magic potion land….
I would like to share with you a few pictures from my recent trip to this Manor in Pakruojis, Lithuania.
It is a beautiful mansion with its rich history and a special room for the in-house perfumer… I recommend to reserve a whole day for this beautiful place – it is amazing any time of the year!

Bonjour Project – Day on Ice

Hello my dear readers,

I hope you’re all enjoying this lovely time of the year, wherever you are. Days in Lithuania are very different from one another. I am used to this from living in Ireland, so nothing can surprise me anymore.. unless it is snow! 🙂 I love snow 🙂 especially when the ground is freshly covered with a nice thick layer of it.. and as you walk, you can hear it crunch underneath your feet…. 🙂 everything around then looks so peaceful and festive… ❤
