My DSH package

has arrived the other day. I didn’t order much but what came in it made me very happy. Then I started smelling what was in it and I was no longer that happy, I was quite distressed. I know I ordered sampled according to notes I usually like, but I didn’t expect them to smell so nice that I decide I need those in larger amounts, and I only tried 2. There are 3 more left!

Notes for Nourouz:

I don’t know how many of you are familiar with Pomegranate Noir by Jo Malone but once you smell that, you’ll recognize pomegranate anywhere. I love it here! It smells like the real deal, so juicy. It made my mouth water. The other thing I realized except for that top note, I get lost in the wonderful smell of the DSH perfume. Don’t ask me if I got the other notes, I just smelled my wrist and wondered how much more money was I going to spend on DSH site. 🙂

Notes for Cimabue:

For those of you who might not have realized it yet, I’m a total clove fan. I grew up smelling it each winter when my parents made hot wine and lated, tasting that same wine and smelling those wonderful aromas. Actually, while at university, I tried the Swedish variant (glög) and that’s where I learned I liked the smell of cardamom as well.

But on to Cimabue. I smelled it before reading the notes (you can get lost in them, there are really many) and straight away I got the nice sweet smell of clove. Then I went to see if I was imagining it these days and saw the list of noted. It is not listed in the top notes but I guess all those citrusy fruits are the ones that made me not think of clove in terms of hot wine. I tried my best and only managed to catch whiffs of cinnamon, the rest was again lost in the wonderful smell that emanated from my wrist. In the end, I got some vanillic undertone to my clove but I’m sorry to say, my nose wasn’t able to distinguish much else.

The good thing about my new infatuation with DSH is the fact that they are going to have a holiday sale! And it will be starting this weekend! Yeey!

20% means I’ll be able to squeeze something more in the package for the same amount of money. 🙂

    Ines, I think you've made a problem for me. I've only ever tried "Prince" by DHS, and, while it gave me a run for my money, and I experienced things I've never experienced elsewhere, I didn't exactly LIKE it. So I've pretty much left her alone after that.Now, from your descriptions, and the fact that both cloves and pomegranates are two of my very most favorite things…. well. You see the problem.

    Carol, I couldn't wait for the sale to start officially so I used the code HOL9 (which is already active) and ordered small bottles of the 2 I already mentioned and Sienna. And a lot of samples. :)After reading your review of Minuit, I had to see (smell) that one as well.

    Rita, it's good you wrote this before I sent the package, I'll put those 2 samples in it and you can see how you like them before ordering. I already ordered them in larger amounts and I plan on using them all over Christmas holidays – they seem just right for it. P.S. I just love Christmas season – however hyped it may be. 🙂

    Btw, Rita have you tried Pomegranate Noir by Jo Malone? I love the way it smells on a strip but spraying it on, not so good.
