It was quite an unusual November and December in relation to perfumes. I kept going through my sample stash, trying out new scents. 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”
This morning saw the end of another storm in Ireland. It was still wet and very windy, even though the worst was already over. I blind picked a sample, spritzed it on my wrists, and ran off to work…

Hello, my dearest perfume lovers,
I have just come back from a short day trip to London, which was a very pleasant surprise/ present from my husband. With very little time and so many things to see, I was very lucky to have also visited two perfume boutiques that specialize in niche fragrances – Les Senteurs and Bloom Perfumery. A separate post is yet to follow 🙂
