Perfume thoughts

I have a really good excuse for not writing more often since I got back from my vacation. It’s not that I don’t sniff perfumes every single day and write notes, it’s the fact that my home laptop is broken so once I get home, the chances of me writing a post are practically non-existent.
Hopefully, that will be remedied very soon so I’ll try and write more often.

In the meantime, I’m in the throes of a terrible shopping madness and want to wander around doing just that all the time. Of course, that means that after work, I head straight home, especially taking care to not go near any perfume stores. And I cannot tell you how much I want to go into one and sniff all the new niche things they acquired in the last few months.

If you know me (from reading my posts this last year and a half), you can probably guess I won’t be able to hold out much longer. And I’m preparing a list of things I want to try – some in Viktor Koncept and some in Institute Parfumeur Flores.

The problem is (yes, I am a shoppingholic) I can’t walk out empty handed. First, chances of trying several scents that I know are on the list because I read good reviews and not liking any of those enough to want it are again practically nil, and then finding something I really like and not buying it?! Impossible.

Have I recently mentioned how I’m trying to save money (or not spend so much)? I’m just very lousy at it so maybe I should stick with stuff I am good at – like spending money. ๐Ÿ™‚

Anyway, I seem to be going through a period where almost all the things I try I like very much so I have several scents I am going to talk about soon.
I noticed how once I loose my momentum (or things fall out of schedule), it is terribly hard for me to get it back. It goes for everything, writing, pilates, my eating schedule. So, I’m trying to learn some self-control.

While I’m doing that, I’ll try and write more often to get more practice.

    Do you like Womanity too or was that ad just a very apt illustration of the compulsion to buy?: – )I must say it smelt of popcorn to me, a bit like one of the Miroirs.

    FS, I didn't see the ad for Womanity. Maybe better it seems.But I did try it on Saturday (I was in Austria, as far as I know, it's still not available here, at least I haven't seen it) – I don't like it. Actually, I hate the opening, it turns my stomach, then later it's ok. So, on average, I don't like it. I also tried the new Paco Rabanne, 1 Million for woman, and I think that one might sell quite well although not to me. ๐Ÿ™‚
