„Dance is poetry made visible, the fragrance is a dance of molecules invisible.“ Precision and Grace!
My story about dancing dates back to early childhood.

One day, a seven-year-old, freckle-faced, green-eyed girl with thick and long braids asked her mom to take her to ballet lessons. It was something other girls talked about, elegantly raising their arms, swirling around, pretending to be ballerinas performing on stage.

PUREDISTANCE WARSZAWA.

The way your lips move when you pronounce its name…
Quite a mouthful sounds so grand, happy, and sad at the same time.

How can I possibly grasp them all? The quantity led me to pull away, shy away, retreat to my safe zone of familiar scents. I didn’t write for some time, I was happily enjoying my collection, wearing perfume, and not even looking at any of the new releases.
And then, a kind of a wake-up call happened. I was so happy to sample Le Jardin Retrouve perfumes, and I enjoyed them!

I look at all the fabulous photos my friends posted on Instagram and Facebook on the first day of Advent: creative, fun, colorful or minimalist, candles, and decorations. So, what is missing? Scented Christmas candles, of course.

I wonder…how these homes – smell? Is the scent complementing the visual effect? Does it conjure the atmosphere and enhance the occasion? I wonder…
