Writing for Life – Towards the greightness

I might be a bit late to the party but let’s say hello to July together and hope it’s a good month for us all. Every time when June comes to an end and first days of summer unveil the number of possibilities on how to spend your holidays (or simply your afternoons after work), I immerse in my very own thoughtfulness. 1st day of July has a super special meaning to me because that’s when Chemist in the Bottle was established. On Wednesday it’s been 8 years since I started writing.

After all these years I still treat written words very seriously and to me they are more personal way of sharing own sensitivity towards beautiful things than anything else. I still haven’t met so many of you who keep supporting me throughout the years but I think that apart from meeting face to face, the words that I’m using in my reviews are the closest to telling you what kind of person I am. Or at least I hope so.

Those 8 years have been a great lesson for me. It was, and still is, a journey of understanding myself, discovering my perfume taste as well as polishing my writing and smelling skills. There were many doubts if continuing the blog makes sense, especially in 2019. But here I am today, still going, although in a slightly different schedule and with lowered motivation due to Covid-19 pandemic and being unable to try many new scents. Cancelled Esxence and Pitti hit me hard.

On more positive side, eighth anniversary is a perfect opportunity to say thank you to each and every one of you. Thank you for watching me grow, for observing as I become an independent adult who’s striving to make his dreams come true. Future must hold something great for me, its just waiting for the ideal moment, right? I feel so lucky that Chemist in the Bottle has such a lovely family of people coming from different ends of the world. May we stay together for many more years, I wouldn’t want you to miss the moment when I become a shooting star, aiming towards ‘greightness’. I love you all and please remember that you mean a lot to me. You’re my brothers and sisters in l’eau.

Lucky 7, Lucky Strike

All signs in the heavens and on earth show that as of today it’s officialy July. Half of 2019 has passed and for me it has been an intensive time during which daily work was entwined with some other events that added a lot of excitement to my life. I wish I knew what the final outcome would be but perhaps it is still a little bit too early. For now we should focus on what a new month will bring.

July is a seventh month of the year and by total coincidence this day, today, marks 7 years since Chemist in the Bottle appeared in the online universe of blogs. It’s been so many years and just like I said in my The Reason I Write post, I didn’t expect to continue for so long. On a day like this I feel proud of such achievement & I remind myself that every one of you is a part of this success.


Having you around, reading and commenting my articles, makes me feel so lucky and blessed – as if I hit a jackpot of triple 7 at one of popular casino games. Your words give me courage and purpose to write another perfume review. It’s fantastic to be surrounded by a group of people who share passion with me and who enjoy reading what I have to say. Big thank you to you all!

I don’t know what the future holds for me and my blog. But I can assure you that as long as I can find happiness in writing and as long as there are fragrances that I find interesting, I will continue keeping Chemist in the Bottle alive. For now I’m wishing you a wonderful 7th anniversary, my dear blog. Happy birthday to you and to my readers for this is the reason for all of us to celebrate.
