Tag Archives: birthday


I like the fact that my birthday falls at the beginning of the year, so lately it started to feel like my new year starts with it.

I’m feeling very positive and optimistic regarding the year ahead, January has passed (it feels like a dead month to me), we are experiencing spring weather here (in the middle of winter) and I’m supposed to be getting a Kindle for my birthday (in a  few days). It really feels like a good start to a new year for me. 🙂

So, I want to celebrate it with you with a little give-away of some of my latest acquisitions – 5ml decants of SL Boxeuses, Shalimar Ode a la Vanille and Worth Courtesan for one lucky commenter.

Celebrating year one with a give-away!

I can’t believe it’s already been a year since I started with this blog. 🙂 It is definitely one of the smarter things I did in life – the happiness and friendship that run through the blogosphere are incredible.

I want to thank everyone who found their way here during that year, for reading and commenting and enjoying my perfume journey with me. I just know there are better things to come for all of us.

And in order to celebrate this first anniversary I want to give away the following:

1. A bottle of PdN Eau Turqouise with some 15ml left (I will not decant this but send the bottle).

2. 10ml decant of Ambre Gris by Balmain

3. 10 ml decant of Tanglewood Bouquet by Crown perfumery
If you have a preference, please say so in the comments, and this will run for a week (meaning until next Saturday, 27 March) when I’ll announce the 3 winners.
I want to wish you all a wonderfully scented spring and here’s to another year of new perfume discoveries!

Happy this year

First off, join me for a glass of champagne while I talk about the passing year.

It’s been a year since I turned 30 and that birthday wasn’t the one I felt the need to celebrate. I was actually quite depressed (even though my friends kept telling me it’s the best decade to be in) and I didn’t feel happy and didn’t really celebrate much.

Consequently, the year was difficult and I am sincerely glad it is behind me. I am looking forward to this year being the starting point of much better things to come so I am celebrating it with everyone, and that will include all my wonderful virtual (blogger) friends.

And since we are here in the middle of the winter, it’s snowing and it’s going to continue snowing for the next 5 days, I am starting to fantasize of all the warm days to come so I want to give you something to remind you of warmer days to come: a 10 ml decant of PdN Eau Turqoise, 10ml of Kenzo Peace and 5ml of both, The Six scents series 1, No. 1 and Givenchy Organza 2008 Fleurs d’oranger.

Just comment to enter (until end of Sunday, 14). 🙂
