Late Weekend Poll – Wishful Thinking

Here it is, the very first weekend in 2019. I’m quite glad it came so early, after only three days at work. My Christmas break lasted 12 days so as you can imagine I wasn’t super excited about going back. I had a calm return to my job duties and many people are still on holidays until 7th of January. I had a great chance to rest during that time, had a lovely time with my family. Watched movies, read books and didn’t have to worry about things. For New Year’s Eve I just sat with my dad to watch a live concert from Warsaw and we had some drinks. I went to bed around 1 AM that night – after midnight toast and fireworks of course. I hope that you also had a chance to take a couple of days off work to relax, spend time with family and enjoy yourselves.

I don’t do new year’s resolutions but on the second though instead of resolutions I might have a couple of wishes for 2019. So here is a question – if you could wish for just 1 thing for yourself and 1 for the perfume world, what would they be? I know these are no easy questions & hopefully writing a wish doesn’t mean it won’t happen. For myself – I wish for success in my current endeavors. For the perfume world – for more creativity and discovery of new & exciting ingredients to use.

    My wish for myself (and my SO) would be to stay healthy. For the perfume world i would like that the exclusive lines would have smaller bottles for decent prices.

    For myself – I need to make some adjustments in my nutrition, so I’m wishing for the proper willpower to keep to them. For the perfume world, slowing down the breakneck pace of launches to perfumes that are truly different and exciting!

    My sister will be moving here with me and my wish is she finds a job quickly so she feels less stress. For perfume I also wish for smaller bottles. I would love to be able to have more choices but prices for large bottles rule it out completely.

    I have to agree about the small bottles! Hiram Green I heard got rid of them. This is often how I fall in love with a pefume. 10-15 ml are larger than samples and enough to really wear around, and then commit to a larger size. Also great for travel. So more large bottles. And frankly: lower the prices. When I’m purchasing oud from Areej le Dore–I totally get the price. I’m fine paying more for hard to find sources, but a lot of firms are awash in cheap chemicals. Even great houses, ones I like such as Zoologist, etc are using relatively inexpensive synthetics (Tom Ford, MFK)–a little whoa on the skyrocketing prices.

      He did, that’s right. He wasn’t making any money on those.
      I would usually opt for a travel size if I liked the perfume but felt that I don’t need a big bottle.
      Agree about prices – too much hype and artificial raises.

    I wish lots of health and stability in my job this year.
    My wish every year for the perfume world is the same: I would like to see a breathtaking Chanel release, a perfume that could become a classic like the amazing ones the house already has. The same goes for Guerlain. I am still keeping my hopes alive.

    Can’t quite think of anything right now – head still full of other stuff. But would love fewer releases, especially of all the smellalikes, and for the use of imagination and creativity in the more accessible (cheaper) ranges. Also world peace, and health and happiness for all my friends and family members.
