Hopping with joy – Happy Easter 2018


Today right after work I’ll be heading back home for Easter. It’s not a long trip for me, only around 1 hour and 20 minutes, it will pass quickly. I’m sure the train will be full of people who, like me, will be going back to their families to celebrate. Since my parents were in Morocco for the last week, there was no chance to start doing Easter preparations yet. Maybe it’s better that way – we’ll have only one day to cook so we’re not at risk of making too much food. Considering that Easter festivities are only 2 days long I think it’s fine if we don’t cook a lot. But I can imagine being busy anyway.

That’s why I’d like to wish you a wonderful Easter today. Please do your best to spend some quality time with your families, wind down, relax and enjoy the meals you prepared with your dear ones. I will be taking a break for these couple of days. I still hope that the weather will become nice enough to have a possibility of going for a walk. I’ll also use that time to prepare for my Esxence trip. Have to sort out a general plan for 3 days I’m going to spend there. I’m truly looking forward to experiencing it for the 5th year in a row. We’ll be in touch during the fair. For now – Happy Easter everyone!

28 days, 28 years, 28 perfume


February this month is an especially creative and entertaining month thanks to Undina and a Month of Irises project she started four weeks ago. It’s a fun thing to do but it’s also a challenge – to find 28 perfume with more or less prominent iris, so that you can wear a different scent on each of twenty-eight days of February. Wasn’t an easy task for me but I think I’m doing outstandingly good & I didn’t repeat any perfume yet. Community projects like this one not only bring us closer together but it also helps us to appreciate iris as a note even more. Not to mention that we learn from each other. That study of iris I wrote earlier this week was also a great ‘practical’ lesson of how this precious raw material is produced.

Did you notice the importance of number 28 in here? Due to February having 28 days we’re all encouraged to wear 28 different iris perfumes. To me this number has an additional meaning this year because today I’m turning 28 years young. I’m going to have a little family celebration today – there will be some cake, a wine toast and maybe even some presents. But otherwise it will be regular, calm Saturday. Luckily it’s not that age yet when you suddenly start to think you’re old. I have some birthday wishes this year but for now I’ll keep them for myself. If any of them comes true, you can be sure that I’ll share some of my happiness with you. Thank you for being a part of me.
