Everyday is Birthday?

There are many sayings out there that tell you what kind of attitude we should have towards our life. You know those quotes like “live like there’s no tomorrow”, “live like every day is your last one”. But why nobody came up with this one – live like everyday is your birthday, huh? Wouldn’t it be nice to have a reason to celebrate on a daily basis? Since birthday is a special day to all people I think we would be much happier and in a better mood as mankind. On the other hand this would probably devaluate the importance of birthday celebration… And while birthday is just once a year there’s absolutely no reason to not try our best to feel happy and optimistic 365 days of the year.

Today is the day when I turn 31 and as long as I am healthy & happy, this is just a number that won’t affect my life in any negative way & I hope it will stay like this as long as possible so I don’t have to worry about it. It’s become a birthday tradition that I treat myself to a new perfume on this occasion but for the last few years I’ve proven to be very indecisive and I’d make my final decision few months after my birthday. But not this year! This time I actually made up my mind on time and my new treasure, a stunning bottle of Ormaie L’Ivree Bleue came to me on Monday. If you need a reminder of how it smells like please go back to my review. I’m glad to add it to my perfume wardrobe.

What else could I wear on my birthday than Prada Amber Pour Homme, a perfume that ignited my perfume passion? This flacon here is almost empty but worry not, I’ll get another one later.

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!
