It seems that’s all I do lately when it comes to perfumes. I think of them, ocassionally dig up a sample and sniff and write about it even less. I think it’s all connected to my perfume samples scare from the other day (which is when I realized it, I think it lasted a bit longer).
I love reading what other perfume bloggers are sniffing and thinking about possibilites of me trying so many different things, but it lately all remains in my head. Which is not a good thing when one is writing a blog. Kind of defeats the purpose. 🙂
So today, first I decided to go in search of some summer decants I have accumulated and put everywhere (we are having summer temperatures these days, which are going back to spring for the weekend). And while I was locating them and just sniffing the openings, I got an idea.
Well, it’s more like defiance against all my samples. And it will force me to write more regularly and to learn more effectively.
I’ve seen many SOTD posts, and even though in my case they will get called the same, they will actually be sample of the day. That way I will go through most of them in some kind of an organized manner, even if all I write is a sentence. Or two words. Ok, that has never happened before but you never know.
We’ll see how it goes. Being constant in my obligations is not something I am known for. 🙂
I like what I wrote 🙂 I mean, I think this is great way to actually focus on what you have (cca 300 of them haha)and in the same time you practice your observations and your expression…
Thanks Bellatrix. I figured out this is the only way to make myself smell them consciously.
I think that's why folks do the SOTD thing…well, that, and a kind of bird call across the forest to others in the flock. ("Hey! I'm green today! You?")If you haven't seen Sakecat's Scent Project yet, you should. She's not very active these days, but there's a virtual library of impressions there. PLUS, you can see a) contextual information, and b) addendums/second and third go-rounds, which show an evolution in impressions for some of them. Which is not to say that is what I hope/want YOU to do, Ines…I look forward to wherever your mind takes you, and us!
ScentSelf, I did see Sakecat's Scent project and I would love to see more of that. 🙂 I actually had the same idea without reading her project but then it just seemed, well, taken. :)I decided to do this because first, I'd like to write more regularly and second, I do write these things in a little notebook, but I'm on my second and it's kind of difficult to find what I'm looking for. :)Btw, the rounds sound good. Although some things are not going to get another go.
"Although some things are not going to get another go."LOL! Fair enough. I have to play that way with some of them, too. 🙂
