    I can retake it but the failing score counts into the average exam score and it may influence if I get scholarship or not.

    Looking forward to getting to know you (maybe following you around a bit too.) You've got an amazing collection!

    Hi teardrop!

    I did see all your Alien reviews - very nice! It's good to know I can skip Eau Luminescente and Aqua Chic, but I'm afraid I'm still going to be needing that scrumptious Caramel Alien in a few months. And now I'm waiting for your review of Essence Absolue, but it's sounding rather promising so far. I'm already getting the feeling that it's going to be the crowning glory of my Alien collection.

    Btw, since I discovered how well they compliment each other, I've been wearing Lemon and Beach together, and with great success. I've garnered several compliments with the duo, which naturally results in much confusion when I try to explain what I'm wearing, lol! Seriously, it would be a lot easier if I could just say "Alien Beach Lemon."

    Hi teardrop, thank you for your Samsara tip from 2011-11-26. It is perfect - took my no-1 position of all time fav !! and got me started on the wonderful journey of anosmic buying

    No, I haven't tried the Liqueur de Parfum yet, but I have been tempted since I seem to love all the Alien flankers! The next one on my want-list is "Caramel Alien" lol, but I can at least wait for autumn for that one.

    Funny you should mention those - I think of you every time I reach for Samsara or the two Alien flankers I've been hooked on for the last two months, Sunessence EDT Eau Legere, aka "Lemon Alien" and Sunessence Or d'Ambre, aka "Beach Alien", lol. Have you tried those? Of course I must congratulate you on that new purchase ...but honestly, it's about time!!

    I hope you had a great birthday!

    Hey teardrop - Happy Birthday!! Wishing you many happy and fragrant returns of the day! Cheers!

About teardrop
Having loved perfume from an early age, l finally discovered the world of "perfumistas" in 2008 when researching gardenia perfumes online. My boyfriend at the time commented that he loved the scent of gardenias, & so do l, having sniffed them many times on my travels in Greece. l stumbled across basenotes, started reading reviews & blogs & was bewildered & fascinated by all these niche brands l had never heard of. That relationship ended, but since then l have fallen in love many times, with perfumes! And l will always be grateful to him for being the catalyst that started me on this wonderful journey of discovery. l have now sampled & made notes on over a hundred different scents, my collection of full bottles is getting out of control, l'm hopelessly addicted & eager for more!

My Other Half Part Two; a Sniffing Trip!

by teardrop on 21st August 2011 at 03:11 PM
So yesterday l managed to get my BF to accompany me to our local city centre branch of Boots for a little sniffing trip! Having poured with rain in the morning, it had turned into a beautiful sunny, warm afternoon, & the parks were as green as they could be after all the rain we've had this week, & smelling wonderful.

Our local football team were playing at home, (& winning!) there was a trial bike competition taking place in the square, & everyone seemed happy to be

On Discussing Fragrance with my Other Half...

by teardrop on 24th July 2011 at 05:40 PM
Last night an amazing thing happened; my bf & l actually sat & had a most enlightening conversation about fragrance! lt must be said first of all that he is a very "manly man", & up to now he seemed embarassed by or uninterested in my perfume obsession. The most l usually get out of him is "that smells like old ladies" or "that smells okay", & his eyes glaze over if l start talking about notes or anything in more detail. lt used to bother me, & l

Too Special for Words

by teardrop on 7th July 2011 at 11:13 AM
Have you ever had a perfume that was so special, important or beautiful to you, that you put off writing a review, because you simply couldn't put it into words? l have, & l decided to attempt my first blog post on it, instead of trying to fit the story into a review.

For me, that perfume is Estee Lauder Private Collection Tuberose Gardenia.

ln 2008, after being into perfume pretty much all my life, l was seeing a guy from California who told me he disliked my "old
