I know I’m lagging behind a bit with writing about perfume. I want to do a real review of Bal d’Afrique because I think it deserves it and I’m somehow lost in the crossing between winter and spring. I cannot seem to find spring in my perfume wardrobe so today I did a bit of sample classification and put florals and those that seem spring-like and green close to my hand so I can put them on when I need something of that sort without having to go look for them.
I find it really strange that I have full bottles of stuff that is for winter and also for summer (autumn comes in between and is never really a problem) but when spring comes, I get lost and don’t know what to wear.
I don’t know if anyone noticed, last spring there was much talk about lily of the valley and lilies in general for spring. This year it’s mostly about narcissus and hyacinths. And not only that there is much talk of it, I also feel this year I want to wear those flowers (again, am I that susceptible to trends?)
One of the things I’d like this spring seems to be Amaranthine. The more I think of it, the more I want it. You know where this is leading, don’t you? 😉
In my search of spring scents, I tried again Lolita Lempicka original. I just can’ see the appeal. And honestly, I get completely lost in the samples of LL stuff I have. How many flankers are there?! I’m never completely sure which one I’m testing. I also have L de Lolita Lempicka (I find that one better than LL) and I also have Fleur Defendue (I still have to try that one).
One of the things I realized this spring is that I enjoy tea in my spring scents (I’m planning a post on that soon).
And a thought to finish with, I finally get the Parfum de Therese and Une fleur de Cassie by Frederic Malle. And when I say I get them, what I actually mean is, I love them and need them in larger quantities than a sample.
P.S. I bought Cadjmere by PG quite some time ago for my boyfriend who doesn’t seem to appreciate it, so it is MINE now. 🙂 Yes! Yes! Yes!
