Birthday Perfume… but it’s 3 months later

When I turned 30 at the end of February nobody was really talking openly about some virus spreading all over the world. Yes, you could hear about happenings in Wuhan but everyone’s thoughts were like… “China? That’s so far away, we’re safe”. To celebrate my 30th birthday I wanted to treat myself to some special perfume but I just couldn’t make a decision between the contender fragrances. And then Covid-19 happened in Europe, arriving in Italy and reaching Poland soon after. My mind was occupied by other, more important things, and I kind of forgot about that gift to myself.


Things slowly begin to look brighter here, the personal restrictions are being reduced so that we can move and go outside more freely (although I think that face mask will be obligatory for quite some more time). The economy is also being gradually restored, some shops and galleries are running again since mid May and hairdressers & beauticians are back in business since this Monday.

Few weeks ago I found a bottle of Love Mimosa from Amouage at a really great price. This perfume wasn’t even in top 5 on my list but I was like “is this is? Is it going to be my forgotten birthday perfume?” I don’t need 100 ml of any perfume so I contacted my two perfume sibilings – Undina and Hajusuuri, who also like this scent and we decided to share the bottle. Their decants have been posted today and I hope they will bring them joy very soon. As for me, I’m still not 100% convinced if this is my bday perfume or not. I’m itching to buy something new, you know…

PS. I got some new interesting fragrances to try this week, so a new review is coming really soon!

    In these dark times, I think that something that looks so much like sunshine is an ideal choice. I hope it smells good and helps you feel happy when you wear it. The scent of mimosa – the flowering shrub – always makes me smile.

    I’m glad we did it!
    I liked the perfume and almost bought it a couple of months ago… but I didn’t need 100 ml, even at half the price. So, it’s great that we decided to share it.

    I don’t think this counts as your BD bottle. You should wait until you find perfume that you’ll know you have to have – that will be your special treat for yourself.

      This split makes me happy too and it was such a great deal.

      I think you’re right! This Love Mimosa just happened to be an occasion hard to pass by. Hopefully something else will speak to me 🙂
