Last Week In Perfumeland – Weekend Link Love

This Sunday the entire Olfactoria family is piling into the new gigantic slightly larger than usual car to drive to the country. A visit with my parents to show off the car the kids is the plan.

I am looking forward to good food and the drive itself (for once young P. is exited to get into a car). What are your Sunday plans?

If you have a little time to relax and read a few good posts this weekend make it these, here is a little tour through Perfumeland’s Best from last week:

Ines of All I am – A Redhead is doing what we all dream of – going straight to summer with a tropical perfume to make us dream of palm trees and blue waters.

Dee of Beauty on the Outside was on the road this week, but once a fumie, always a fumie, even on business trips. Check out her exquisite fragrant finds in good old Texas. And while you are there, take a look at the perfume that made a Queen out of Dee!

Tarleisio of Scentless Sensibilites has been busy writing up perfume briefs for a certain undisclosed entity, but she also had the time for a wonderful review of the most awaited release of 2011 (so far), Serge Lutens’ Jeux de Peau. For a totally different take on the same perfume check out my review from Thursday.

Suzanne muses about the certain age it takes to appreciate certain things, like Paul Giamatti and Breath of God. Head on over to her Perfume Journal read how these two are connected.

Olenska of parfümieren has taken on a taunting and exiting project. The month of March is to be filled with Serge Lutens reviews. For starters we’ll take Ambre Sultan, please.

Victoria of Bois de Jasmin is such a resource to all of us. Her knowledgeable and well-written posts are the first I look to every day. In her series about notes and materials in perfumery, “Perfume Vocabulary”, she takes a close look at one of my favorite plants, the very versatile bitter orange tree. A helpful must-read for every Perfumista!

PST has been taken over by the love for New York City this past week. Many great posts were written by almost every contributor including yours truly.

Don’t forget to enter my Atelier Cologne Giveaway, if you haven’t already. The draw ends Wednesday morning (GMT).

I am looking forward to hear about your Sundays, your favorite posts or other pressing thoughts!

xoxo 🙂

    Enjoy your trip to the country! That’s a lovely way to spend a Sunday.

    We have no plans for the weekend, so I imagine I’ll dive into a book (Avery Gilbert’s What the Nose Knows) and catch up on Downton Abbey. I have some decanting to do for swaps as well. Looks like I do have plans after all!

    Have a great day!

      You have no idea how much I would like not to have plans for once. But the kids nessecitate we do something, starting at 5 in the morning. I need a vacation! 😦
      Enjoy your weekend, Joan Elaine, your book sounds lovely.

    Have a nice visit with your parents this afternoon, I’m off to do the same thing after a very lazy morning.

    I loved your NYC post on Perfume Smellin Things yesterday and Victoria’s post on Fragrance Layering on Bois de Jasmin (I think BdJ has been doing some really interesting articles lately). I also appreciated the link to Bela’s website “Frag Name of The Day” which is great for people like me who can’t string two words together in French. When I went to buy Cuir de Russie I pointed at the bottle and said “can I have bottle of this one please” LOL!

    • Olfactoria says:

      Back from our trip now, I am soooo tired. 🙂 I hope you had a lovely Sunday, Tara!
      Frag Name of the Day is a really practical blog, I read french at school, so mostly I am fine with the names, but sometimes it is good to make sure! 😉

    Have fun cruising in your new car to your parents’ place! Your Sundays always sound so homey and nice, and I think you’re building great memories for your children. One of the best parts of being a child is that feeling of being comforted and spoiled with love by one’s grandparents.

    We are on the receiving end of a deluge of rain here today, so my Sunday will be spent catching up on blogs, doing some house-cleaning, and maybe going out to the movies. I finally got to see “The King’s Speech” yesterday, and it was so good, I’d like to go see it again!

    • Olfactoria says:

      Hi Suzanne,
      your rainy Sunday sounds very cozy and nice to me, I wish I could just stay in with a good book and good food for a day and be “unreachable” for everybody.
      But I should not complain we had a lovely, if exhausting day. The boys are asleep already, and a book and a hot bath are waiting for me now. 🙂
      I hope I get to see The King’s Speech soon!!!

    I love your end-of-the-week posts. You really highlighted what I loved about the week. 🙂
    I hope your Sunday was a truly relaxing one and you had a great time.

    • Olfactoria says:

      Thank you for your kind words, Ines! We have the same interests, it seems! 🙂
      Enjoy your Sunday evening, I am looking forward to our next week in Perfumeland!
