I was very happy when Carol
invited me to join her blog project which came about when she discovered the Weber collection and a little stash of bottles containing perfume she named Mystery 6T.
I’ve been spending a lot of time with it this last week and I still feel a bit lost when the drydown comes and all the flowers envelop me. The flowers are like my little lost friends that I know but cannot name. And I’m going about this all wrong. 🙂
Let me start at the beginning.
Mystery 6T will remain mysterious for me because I will never know for sure what are the notes. But I will forgive my little mischievous marvel because I don’t mind letting it keep some mystery for itself when I get so much joy when it envelops me.
It’s been on my mind for some time now, the smells of the seaside, especially down at the middle and southern Adriatic coast. The ambiental smellls there are different than on the northern part. The soil smells different, the plants are different, the air is more saturated with heat, it just smells different than the north where I spend my summers these days.
And that is where Mystery transported me – to the south of Adriatic, to a beach where air is saturated with heat and the smell of Coppertone, while there is a salty sea breeze carrying whiffs of spruces and firs under which people take cover from the sun.
I suppose this is quite a strong hint that I like my little Mystery? 🙂
And while it lets me have some fun in the sun, after some 45 minutes, it’s time to get out of that sun and lay in the garden. The salty breeze can be found amid the flowers but it’s the sweetness of flowers that brings joy now. Who are my flowery friends? I seem to know you but I’m guessing at your names? Rose? Iris? Jasmine? I don’t really care as long as you stick around on this sweet cloud you have me trapped on.
I don’t think I’m transporting anyone near me though. Not that I mind, I like some solace when enjoying the company of such a mysterious friend.

And, if you are interested in having a little Mystery bottle yourself (and believe me, you are interested) post a comment on any of the participating blogs as to why you should have a bottle of this rare , unreleased parfum and we will choose the most creative reply as the winner of a 15 ml , full bottle of Mr Webber’s parfum 6T , one of the 22 bottles in existence !!
P.S. I just have to say this – this is where I found in existence what an aquatic note should smell in my opinion. Not that ozony, terrible thingie (I apologize to all those who enjoy Cool Water and the likes) but this salty summer breeze.
