My resolution for the coming year in fragrance is that I am allowed to purchase one bottle a month, and only one I had a crush on for more than a month. In this series of monthly posts, I will proudly present that bottle.
The month of January saw the advent of a new bottle I had been craving for quite some time – Armani Privé La Femme Bleue.
For February I was planning on adding Chanel Coromandel to my collection, but a friend (Thank you, E.!) generously sent me a decant so that purchase was pushed back. Instead I got lucky and found a full bottle of Hermès Santal Massoia, the newest Hermessence on eBay, I pounced and a few days later my big and beautifully greige bottle arrived from France.
I need to learn to make better photos though… please try to ignore all the fingerprints, I didn’t have the chance to do them over.
I’m happy with Santal Massoia, it has a back to the roots feel for me, since Ellena and his creations were my first love and a huge part of my way into Perfumeland. Also it is a wonderful perfume for sick days, of which we had many in the past weeks.
The next months are already filled with ideas for my next additions to my collection. We’ll see what March has in store soon…
And now for the Giveaway:
I will pick one lucky reader to win samples of La Femme Bleue (1ml) and Santal Massoia (5ml). The winner will be drawn among the commenters, who let me know what would be the perfume of your dreams and why.
Comments are open until Wednesday, February 29 midnight and the winner will be announced on March 1.
