Feels like a special day

Although on the outside it looks like a normal summer weekend’s day. But for me it feels special.

After a long time, I finally feel enthusiasm regarding a new perfume release. I’m blaming Cookie Queen and Tara for this one. But I’m already in love with the idea of that perfume. I love the name, I almost love all the notes, and as it’s a Chanel Exclusif (I love several of them), I don’t think this one will disappoint. I can finally say I’m eagerly awaiting to try a new perfume.

And then, in the middle of reading that review, I receive a post pingback. That hasn’t happened in a long time. It turns out my Shalimar habit stuck with Undina and now she has a post up about other possible nightly perfume habits we (perfume lovers) might have. You can go and take a look at what other people think of wearing perfume to bed.

To end my perfume-related day, the cake I made for a friend’s birthday turned out great. I’m mentioning the cake now because I received the recipe several years ago from another perfume blogger.

That is why it feels like a special day – everything today seems to be saying it’s time to enjoy the perfume world again.

P.S. Now that I look at my post it seems to be all over the place. πŸ™‚ But who cares, it’s a perfume-world day for me.

        Let’s hope it lasts. πŸ˜‰ Oh, I’ll find the Chanel, I just have to wait a bit. πŸ™‚
        I think it was Sigrun who gave me the recipe. It’s chocolate genoise with a mascarpone cream into which you can put strawberries or raspberries, whatever you have on hand. There is also a video where Julia Child has a guest who makes this cake (with different decorations). It kind of looks complicated but it actually just calls for time and concentration. And tastes amazing.

    You see how it happens?! Our friends’ posts influence us and stay with us for years πŸ™‚

    It’s always great to see you around – whether you write about perfumes, books or cakes… Speaking of which: don’t you think you just have to tell us more about that recipe? πŸ˜‰

      That is so true! And sometimes you don’t even realize they’ve stuck with you until a thought suddenly pops out in your mind.
      The cake is a combination of chocolate genoise and mascarpone cream and feels like a true cake when you make it. I have several quickie recipes that always work but don’t feel like making a real cake. You know, taking the time and doing it with full focus.
