The past week I made some very nice discoveries in my sample box. I am rather chuffed at the fact that I have now a very comprehensive collection. When I need something, chances are not bad it is in there somewhere, if only a few tiny drops for reference. (Of course I realize there are still huge gaps, but I don’t need to have everything. I don’t delude myself thinking I am a museum.)
The scope of my sample box being as it is, is mostly due to my lovely friends out there all over the world, Perfumistas are such a generous and caring bunch!
I love to discover perfumes anew that I thought wouldn’t work at all, and those discoveries range from hot-pink (Malle Lipstick Rose) to dark green (Ormonde Jayne Woman) and many shades in between.

Ines of All I Am – A Redhead smells fall in the air…
Persolaise reviews the new Annick Goutal perfume, Mon Parfum Chèrie par Camille. I am hugely unhappy that I am not able to enjoy this, as I completely agree with Persolaise that this kind of old-fashioned chypre is a must-try.
The Candy Perfume Boy is in his element – Mugler and candy, that seems to be a collection just made for him.
Lucy of Indie Perfumes has started a very interesting project – perfume and writing based on a story, Clarimonde. There is a giveaway too…
