Perfume thoughts

Unfortunately, lately I sense a definite lack of time in my daily routine. Have no idea why suddenly there are so many things requiring my attention, but the only thing is to go with it, it also will pass. If not sooner, when I leave for my (well-deserved if I say so myself) vacation.

So, experiencing a serious time problem, the only thing I have time to write about are sentence or two about scents I’ve tried recently.

Foremost in my head is the fact that I’m heading down the new bottle road after reading a review of Chanel Cristalle edt by Vetivresse (July 9) – I tried it yesterday, and it hit all my buttons. One of the loveliest green scents I tried in a long time. And I so wanted to try and save my money… Or at least not spend so much.

I finally got my hands on Tea for two by l’Artisan and although I loved the opening (I’m very much into tea in any manner it can be experienced), the drydown was too sweet for my taste. It’s not actually that sweet, but I’m more of a salt person, so too sweet for me is probably normally sweet for everyone else.

I keep saying how much I love Lucky scent’s sample packs, and I’ll keep saying it. 🙂 They are great. My last one contained samples of Amouage Reflection masculine and feminine. I really liked Masculine version, it smells like a male version of Amouage Lyric. Which is good because I love Lyric (not so much the price though). The feminine Reflection is some aquatic, light thingy that left me completely cold and not impressed.

Yesterday I was contemplating how much my nose has changed during the last year. I’m nowhere near having even an average knowledge of perfume but I seem to enjoy more different scents than before, and appreciate notes I don’t find wearable but that seem to be well incorporated into a scent. I know I tried L’Artisan Ete en douce last year and dismissed it straight away (I’m not going to say what I though of it then), yesterday I tried it again and found it lovely. I’m still not sure I’ll be wearing it anytime soon, but it seems I’m on my way.

Picture of what I wait to see in person in 2 1/2 weeks. 🙂
