Wandering around, sniffing

Lately I ask myself quite often what do I do with my time because I can certainly say there is a definite lack of it in my life. So, I didn’t have time either to smell something for a proper review or even to read a book yet (that is definitely stressing me out) so I’ll talk today about what I’ve been smelling the last few days.

Last Saturday I was at a vintage (grape harvest), and it’s been a while since I actually walked through a real type of a village. You know, the one where there are farm animals and barns? It doesn’t smell nice but I can tell you, I really enjoyed smelling something so different from my everyday life. 🙂 Vintage itself is an experience I adore. Although I slept like the dead that night. 🙂

Now, on to my lack of time. I barely managed to try two scents this week that are on my list lately because they’ve started appearing on blogs. I read last week a lovely review by Divina of Boss Orange and been meaning to try it since then, but I only managed to do it yesterday and that was unsuccessful as it turned out. It seems the SA sort of missed most of my hand when spraying it on, so there was nothing to smell after some 20 minutes. I did like the fruity opening (the apple is lovely) but now I have no idea what goes on next so I’ll have to repeat the experience. Oh, well, with the rate I’m going, it will be sometime next week. 🙂

The other thing I wanted to try was Si Lolita and although I plan on trying it again just to check, I think a bottle is coming my way. 🙂 Though it makes me wonder how come it didn’t come out before summer because I can definitely see myself wearing it through the summer with its opening of childhood memories of sunscreen (was it Coppertone that had that particular smell?). Someone mentioned on one of the blogs I follow regularly the name of that particular molecule/note but I forgot (as usual). 🙂 Oh, well, I’ll find it again sooner or later.

    Heeeello sweetie! I really really like Si Lolita and the bottle is simply adorable. I had not made the suncream connection, but now that you mention it, YES, I can totally see that!! I was completely zeroing in the patchouli as a point of focus, but the overtone is indeed, summery! Good one.

    Hey Carol, I'm glad it has arrived (after reading your thoughts on it). I can't wait to go try it again and take it home with me! 🙂

    Dearest Divina, I'm actually ashamed now, I didn't get far along after the sunscreen note (I was running around town trying to do everything on time so I forgot to smell it afterwards). I completely missed the patchouli. 🙂 Well, at least I have a good excuse – getting lost in childhood memories straight away. Now that I wrote that, I kind of think that is not the image they are trying to project. 😉


I love hearing your thoughts!
