“Joy, beautiful spark of the gods,
Daughter from Elysium,
We enter, drunk with fire,
Heavenly One, thy sanctuary!
Your magic binds again
What convention strictly divides;
All people become brothers,
Where your gentle wing abides.” – Friedrich Schiller
Oh, what a joy: Friedrich Schiller for a read, Beethoven for my ears, Klimt for my eyes…and Atelier des Ors White Collection for my nose!
Every time I think about Barcelona I hear Freddie Mercury and Montserrat Caballe (Barcelona! It was the first time that we met…Barcelona! How can I forget!), see broken pieces of colorful ceramic tiles forming a big lizard, I feel sea salt touching fingertips of Christopher Colombo high up on his monument and hear parrots nesting on a palm tree.
Gold and scented pixie dust!
Just a week ago we were impatiently heading towards the Esxence Milan 2018 edition, in anticipation of all it has to offer…ah! Sweet and fragrant memories!
While I was in Milan with my team, attending Esxence – The Scent of Excellence, The Fragrance Foundation Awards Finalists’ Luncheon was held on Friday, April 6, 2018.
I was informed that The Plum Girl site is a The Fragrance Foundation Awards 2018 – TOP 5 FINALIST!
I got the mail. I cried. I laughed. Danced. Simultaneously. I found out that I’m in the TOP 10!
The Plum Girls goes to Esxence 2018 in Milan!
All the lucky stars have aligned themselves in a perfect constellation and yes, I will be there! Finally.
With a little help from my friends, I plan to conquer The Mall 😀
