Good morning, perfumed friends!
Now, this is it for 2012. In fragrant retrospect I can say it was a Guerlain year for me. Through and through! January brought Sous le Vent into my life, Vega in April while in Paris. Both have joined the cave hoarding league chez Larimar.
I also intensified my love with Jicky considerably, equally split now between the EdP (more in warmer climate) and the Extrait (in the cold), which in the end joined the heights of Tabac Blond in my perfume love. I remember a clear bout of Caronista-hood in late summer, when I finally decided to get Acaciosa, which is not likely to be produced ever again. Other houses I focused on were Serge Lutens and Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier.
Today I am wearing Boxeuses, which I have grown fonder of recently, but its low sillage still leaves me unclear whether to get it again. I revsited some wax samples yesterday and must say I was smitten by Douce Amere. I had marked this as 'not like' in my brain, but definitely wonder whether I had ever sniffed it. Anyway, I think I'll need this in my life... something addictive going on there.
Plan to play around with the wax samples of the Bois series during the day. I will see the new year in wonderfully preserved 1960s L'Heure Bleue Extrait, a case study for a very rich natural musk base. Hugs and kisses for everybody, for my special darlings, who know who they are. ^^
Wishing you a splendid start in 2013! Heal your paws, roast in front of the open fire, drink champagne (that's the only thing I drink all night) and be happy! xxx.
