Weekend Poll – Vacation Perfume Packing

neroli-dore

I think current week is beating the record of being one of the hottest this summer. There was only one week in June when termometer bar was showing a whopping 38°C. The season in Poland was extremely dry & hotter than usual. Fruit, veggies and cereal products got more expensive due to drying or withering crops. This week though is more violent and unpredictable, with short but intense storms. Increased humidity doesn’t make life easier when it’s so hot so I felt unable to wear anything else than light and refreshing citrus. Sotd included Eau de Neroli Dore, Komorebi, Infusion de Mandarine, Clementine California, and Boy so far.

Speaking of perfume, the date of my vacation trip is fast approaching & I already started preparing some things for my voyage. Of course holiday is a break from everything – work, everyday problems, a bit of an escape from tech world. But it’s not a break from wearing perfume. I just can’t imagine not wearing any fragrance at all at that time (unless I was at the seaside, swimming and sunbathing all day long). My Alpine trip will last 10 days, how many fragrances would you pack for this kind of vacation? I was actually thinking of 10, possibly less but definitely not more. What say you?

Gifted… with Friends and Perfume

One of the best things about becoming a part of perfume world, next to the possibility of smelling countless new fragrances, is the opportunity to talk to many different people who share a common interest with you. With most people it’s mostly about chatting & exchanging comments online. Some might get lucky and eventually meet in person if they live in similar area or attend events like Esxence. No matter which way of interactions applies to you, there’s always someone that you feel more connected to compared than the others. Sooner or later you start to think of them as friends.

jillie-giftOver the years of being present in this scented universe – on various blogs and websites at first (Now Smell This mostly), then through Chemist in the Bottle I made a small group of friends too. We’re connected through perfume but it feels like our relationship levelled up a few times as our perfume tastes are also incredibly similar. I never met them face to face, I haven’t heard their voices yet but they are my friends nonetheless. It is my wish meet them in person and give them a big hug (and then smell perfume together).

We have a tradition of our own, that once in a while we exchange scented packages. We swap samples from brands that are harder to find for both sides, or perfume we wrote an article about that was so good that it made us want to try it. Sometimes no scent is involved when we simply want to share something with one another. Birthdays, Christmas or Easter are our main occasions to send something. Recently I sent a gift to Jillie and got one from her too. Inside I found a gorgeous iris card, a couple of samples and Neroli Iris body milk from Korres. To Jillie I sent samples, tea and a bar of chocolate. Any time I receive a package I feel blessed. Blessed with friends and perfume.
