Long Lost Scents – Si Lolita

I wore this fragrance on St.Patrick’s Day this year as my “something green” for the parade 🙂

Well, there was no parade, of course! And I don’t think we did anything else that memorable.. It would have been fun to bring out my little one to town and see the parade, but I suppose we’ll have to wait till next year… or the one after that.

Moonlight in Chiangmai – the New Fragrance from Parfums Dusita

Just before Christmas 2020 I received a sample of Moonlight in Chiangmai, the tenth creation by Parfums Dusita.

That extra time I took to test the fragrance helped me tame it.

Long Lost Scents – Penhaligon’s Peoneve

The other day I realized that it’s been years since I touched Penhaligon’s Peoneve last time. Well, mainly because it used to play tricks on me and I never got to enjoy the scent properly…

Long Lost Scents

With the beginning of 2021 I decided to start a project of revisiting my perfume collection and writing a post about my findings. It might take me a while but I think it is necessary I do so.

First of all, Bonjour Perfume blog was created for this particular reason – it was meant to be like my diary about fragrances. And second of all, as much as I love niche perfumes, I realized how closed off and limited I became – circulating probably only among ten bottles, forgetting and pushing aside all other fragrances in the collection just because they were designer scents, easily available in stores, not niche…

Perfume News – Wild Rose by The Burren Perfumery

At the start of 2020 none of us could have predicted the extremely different year ahead. A year of a lot of uncertainty, pain, and sorrow. But also hope, kindness, and desire for change. Only through the hardship we tend to evolve, though. So, as this year is nearing the end, I am certain, each one of us have been through their own hell and back, and now more than ever we have learnt the most about ourselves, as single individuals and as a society.

Issara – Little Treat

Elevenses – my favorite time of day…
When the morning rush is over it’s time for a little treat.
It always comes paired with a delicious mug of tea, something sweet, and a scent which lifts me up. That’s a moment of peace, time to gather my thoughts and move on with the day. Like a ritual – extremely important.
