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!
