Lovely unexpected mistake when working on a new fragrance today, picking up a recently delivered vial of ginger oil instead of what I was expecting to.
The ginger adding a refreshing spicy dimension to the delicate sweet floral frangipani I was working with.
Might have to rethink the perfume style I was working on.
What are your aromatic & floral combination favourites?

Can't believe I found a stockist in sleepy Perth that has his perfumes : )
Planning a trip out there on Saturday..really want a bottle of At the beach, and maybe Snow? Going to sniff them all until my nose gives in
Its a boutique called Meg and Wally..which could be lethal to my credit card
Who needs food anyway LOL
I never owned Dior's Fahrenheit, until today.
I used to know a guy who wore it and it was a time in my life that I don't particularly want to think about. It's such a distinctive scent that I knew it would bring back memories, but I do remember that I liked it, so I finally gave it another chance.
I tested it on a strip and it smelled nothing like what I remembered, nothing! So I read about it some more and read reviews, and some people did say that it wasn't all
Well, if IFRA would have been lucky, you would now be reading one of my most well-argued pieces ever written, in defense of their latest video.
Unfortunately, the crashing server ate it.
100% lost in cyberspace. I kid you not.
Is the universe trying to tell me something? Who knows.....
However, I intend to rally to the cause one more time. Come back later - for a link to a re-created version!

(a renewed sense of optimism!)
A new release from Valentino, Valentina is to be launched in September. It sounds like something that I would love, floriental described (by the PR anyway) as 'sensual', I even like the pinky girly bottle. But listed in the notes is strawberry...
The last time I can remember smelling strawberry was in a The Body Shop product a decade ago. It didn't smell bad at all, but for some reason as soon as I read that my interest waned. In the interest in not shutting myself off into perfume
