During the past 10 weeks I had enough time to go through my perfume bottles and samples, making an inventory of a kind. I ended up playing like a little kid with perfume and desert sand, and just sniffing certain fragrances made me close my eyes: I traveled in time and space to deserts I long for, or the ones I’ve always dreamt about.

I wanted to share them with you, and maybe inspire you to do the same, so here are the 5  desert-themed fragrances I wore the most this spring! I’m not (never) saying that these are the TOP5 ever or anything like that – you’ll make your own choices. I’ll try to explain why I singled out these five, and what makes them special.

I hope my newsletter finds you well and safe at home! My home router is showing signs of life again, so here I am with more thoughts&musings, useful information, and brand recommendations! Shaken, not stirred…and going on! Because…I need beauty in life now. I do, perfumes bring me joy and I love to share it!

Here comes my second #sprayathome #sprayitforward Newsflash: I hope you are all at home and well. Times are complicated but our love for perfumes unites us, so I’ll keep sharing news that small perfume brands have sent me. We’re at war. The enemy is invisible. I truly believe that we should all share our resources with the community, and support each other in times of need. I hope you’ll find something for yourself: if you’re looking for a perfume to make you feel better, help you endure or make you feel glamourous,  make sure to shop online and from niche/indie/artisan brands!

Spring is in the air, although the first day of spring and the March equinox is still a couple of weeks away. Technically, earlier than usual – equinox falls on March 19th this year, for the first time after 1896! I hope you are already enjoying the healing power of first tree blossoms or primulas, various messengers of spring, snowbells, and violets hiding shyly in grass turning fresh green or maybe protruding under the snow.

Hello, early spring! Let’s spritz and chase the winter away!

Pensive, meditative, soulful, abstract, and inspiring perfumes of Pitti, plus two bonuses from Sweden: I started my Pitti Fragranze reports with Roses, moved to Scents, Tastes, and Heritage of Mediterranean, and now it’s time for my last Florence 2019 report.

This took a bit longer than usual because I’ve been busy writing a couple of reviews in the meantime, traveling a bit, procrastinating a little, handling my regular work tasks, and generally slowing down as Autumn rolls in.
