Bunch o’ limited edition collector bottles (& some other stuff) 2017, part 10

More limited edition collector fragrance bottles, with the usual disclaimers: in most of these cases, the juice is unchanged, just the bottle is “special” (or not, as the case may be), and some of these may not be available in the US. Today’s post includes special edition bottles from Lolita Lempicka, Yves Saint Laurent and Azzaro, plus a new Extrait de Parfum version of Maison Francis Kurkdjian Baccarat Rouge 540.

Lolita Lempicka 20 ans

Top 10 Summer Fragrances 2017

I love summer. Yes, I’ll complain about the heat like everyone else, but I’d rather bake than freeze any day. Plus, the fruit! Even if you don’t like summer, you have to admit that the abundant variety of fresh fruits (that haven’t been flown in from another continent) is worth a little extra sweat on your brow. Here are 9 reasonably new-ish (all came out within the past 5 years, and most of them within the last 2 years) fruit fragrances to help keep you feeling cool and lighthearted, plus one veg, because you have to have your veg…

Top 10 Winter Fragrances 2017

I tried not to get too Grinch-y over the holidays, and I did pretty well, considering the world events of late 2016 plus the fact that I was suffering occasional bouts of Instagram ennui. So many exotic vacations, so many artful table settings, so many #thankful embraces scrolling past my eyes; you may know what I mean.

I’m happy with my own lot in life, truly, but sometimes I worry — not on my own behalf, but on yours, dear readers. My taste in perfume may be glamorous, but my life is pretty quiet. I hate to let you down. Still, rather than fabricate some picture-perfect fantasy life, I’ll just come clean and share my own mundane activities, with the fragrances that I wear to dress them up a bit.

Just a regular day at the office: Byredo Rose Noir. This was my most-worn fragrance of 2016, because it’s a “no brainer” for me: a blend of citrus, rose and modern patchouli that doesn’t come on too strong. It’s my olfactory equivalent of my many basic black dresses…

Winter Lists : 5 Books and 2 Perfumes

There is nothing especially winter-like about my list of books (and perfumes). It’s mainly about enjoyment, with a dose of something high-spirited. Some may call it escapism, but I see it as a way to recharge and tune out the world long enough for me to find my balance and plunge back into the routine. Moreover, high-spirited, entertaining […]
