Last Week In Perfume Land – Weekend Link Love

This Sunday is  spent in great exitement at the House of Olfactoria. Not because of anything scent-related though.

My husband has fallen in love with a car. Not a small sports car as could be suspected, thank God, but a big one! Yesterday the four of us, children’s safety seats and all, went for a test drive in a big, black Landrover Defender.

Great fun was had by all! 🙂

My husband is so enamored with the car, he even wants me to scent it! I should use the Annick Goutal Room Spray in Noel, so the car “always smells of trees”. Isn’t that lovely?

Well, he doesn’t have to ask twice, it will be my honor to make this the best smelling car in the city.

My only gripe is that is doesn’t come with its own parking space, which is not going to make my life any easier. 🙂

Now let us have a look at what was up in Perfumeland last week, many great posts are to be found, here are a few of my favorites!

Tarleisio bewitches us all with her writing skills, her latest addition to a series of great pieces is about a favorite perfume of mine – Andy Tauer’s Incense Extreme.

Krista of Scent of the Day takes a look at my favorite high tea – Serge Lutens Five O’Clock au Gingembre.

Persolaise is reviewing new Guerlains, always interesting, if not always as satisfying as one would hope (the Guerlains, not the review ;))

Olenska finds new love in an old perfume. As always, she provides us with a story beautifully told.

Suzanne’s Perfume Journal is a wonderful resource you should bookmark. Her latest review is also a Guerlain – Vetiver.

My friend Dee of Beauty on the Outside is on a lipstick kick – something I can absolutely relate too! For all of you who can use a little break from perfume, take a look at lovely lipstick on lovely Dee. 🙂

    Congrats on the new car Mr O! Noel is a great match 🙂

    That Land Rover looks like a lot of fun, B! I’m not sure I would like to park it, but that car just begs for some trips out of the city and onto the backroads!!!

    Hm, is the Land Roover really the most suitable car for Vienna ?
    Anyway, there won’t be much of them running around in the city, so when I see one I’ll think in the future ” most probably, that’s Birgit on her way…”

    Thank you so, so much for the mention, B! Another one is on the way, but it’s been causing a good deal of morning, noon and night sickness…;)
    I have to say it, that is a very nice, very…large…car. And all I aspire to is a humble VW Beetle…For one, they’re a bit easier to park! 😉

      You are very welcome, dear T! I am looking forward to your next review! 🙂
      I totally agree about the parking issue, also the Beetle has this undeniable cuteness factor (Hug it? Drive it? Hug it? Drive it?), but I am falling for the Defender too, it is so big! 🙂
