Mysterious Musk by Mugler

Alien Musc Mysterieux by Mugler was a total blind buy and definitely not a love at first sniff…

And just when I thought I hated musky scents (because they make me cough and are drying out my throat), I chose this Alien version totally by chance – and loved it!

Long Lost Scents – Opera Classic Dzintars

For the last week I have been wearing Dzintars Opera Classic every day. It is such a delicate fruity / floral perfume that I cannot get enough of… 🙂

According to Fragrantica, the top notes are Neroli, Orange and Red Berries; middle notes are Gardenia, Magnolia and Pink Peony; base notes are Honey, Blackwood and Patchouli. I think it is the magnolia, peony, and red berries that make me want to dance, and I feel so feminine when I wear it… The scent is refreshingly sweet and lasts 6+ hrs on my skin.

Also, I think I am more emotionally attached to this perfume and the brand itself, because Dzintars is the closest thing to a Lithuanian perfume in my collection… And as years go by, I am finally beginning to find something from the fragrance world that has a strong connection with me…

I purchased Opera Classic in 2017. It was the last time I got to walk the streets of Riga, Latvia. It is such a beautiful city, I have great memories from that trip. You can re-visit my short blog post about this holiday here 🙂

Dzintars, the Latvian cosmetics giant, declared bankruptcy in 2019. But by the looks of their website and social media channels, they are still operating, only with a much smaller produce, selling mainly sun creams and body care products, no perfumes unfortunately. They do deliver to European countries, so it is worth checking out if you are interested.

Have you heard of Dzintars before? Or maybe you have a favourite scent? 🙂

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?

Saturday Snippet – Eau des Merveilles by Hermes

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… 🙂

Long Lost Scents – Stash SJP

Stash SJP by Sarah Jessica Parker is an ideal summer scent in Ireland for me.

As we are approaching the hottest days this year, 25 C degrees is not that hot compared to other countries…. However, it is scorching for people who are not used to this kind of heat. A win-win situation – spend your day at the beach and wear your best summer fragrance! 🙂

And my choice is so perfect for just that. Stash SJP as an aromatic woody scent has a vibe of sunscreen lotion and oud! I feel like swimming in a bath with coconuts and other fruits, eating ice cream, and enjoying a breezy, refreshing woody aromas…. Yes – fruity, creamy, cooling and warming at the same time – Stash SJP has it all.

I remember purchasing Stash SJP as it just came out, so must be somewhere around 2016 – 2017. It is of great quality after all these years, and for the fraction of the price compared to other designer brands.

According to Fragrantica, Stash SJP “begins with notes of fresh grapefruit, black pepper and aromatic sage. Its heart notes include Atlas cedar, patchouli, ginger lily and pistachios, laid on the warm woody base of olibanum, massoia wood, vetiver and musk”. So no coconuts or oud there, I am afraid! 🙂 But I think it definitely performs better on a hot day…. 🙂

Three days in a row with the same scent – it is a winner for me after all 🙂

Have you tried Stash SJP yet? What are your thoughts?
