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…

Some became my favourites instantly, the others I will be hardly coming back to just yet… Unless, a few months later my nose will crave for something new to re-discover… 🙂Continue reading “Winter Sample Stash”

White florals…tuberose…and honey… Sweet, so sweet… So rich, so thick… The scent that will always be remembered…
To all the ladies in the whole world!
Let us celebrate the International Women’s Day! 🙂 may it be full of joy, colors, sunshine and fragrance 🙂 be happy! 🙂
