When you are reading this, I am either building a sand castle, hunting for sea shells or loading my plate with delicious antipasti. 🙂
This last week warrants one more look back, since several great posts made Perfumeland the wonderful place it is – a place full of creativity, adorable and intelligent people, excellent writing, caring relationships and of course lots and lots of gorgeous juice!
Dee of Beauty on the Outside takes a look at Mandy Aftel’s creations.
Tarleisio on Scentless Sensibilities reviews an old faithful (and favorite) of mine, Ormonde Jayne Tolu.
Ines of All I Am- A Redhead really is whetting my appetite for Mona di Orio perfumes, one of these days, I’m going to succumb to the temptation and order some samples. Until then I’ll stick with her enticing reviews, this time it is Vetyver.
Undina on Undina’s Looking Glass reminisces about childhood memories of Miss Dior and a great find.
Persolaise published a London Shopping Guide, I will certainly take that with me on my next trip! A Perfumista must-read (and must-print and must-take with!).
Suzanne’s Perfume Journal reviews and gives away a bottle of Sharif, Abdes Al Salaams newest fragrance that makes me shiver with anticipation!
Should you have missed my Summer Favorite Things – here they are again, don’t forget to read the comments, it is so interesting to read about everybody’s favorites. I’d love to hear yours!
I hope you all have a great Sunday, looking forward to “seeing” you again soon!
I wanted to thank all of you who read Olfactoria’s Travels regularly, or even take the time to comment and make this blogging venture into an interesting dialogue and a really comfortable place to be. It means so much to me that what I am doing finds an audience. I appreciate your loyalty. I wish I could hug you all! xoxo, B
Thanks for the link. 🙂
As you can see, I’m still not yet sunbathing, obligations follow even when I leave but that’s what enabled me to read your lovely post.
I feel the same way about this community of perfumistas. 🙂
Have a great vacation! (and please, if you build a sand castle, show us a photo) 🙂
Good to hear fom you once more before your vacation! Enjoy yourself! Many hugs! 🙂
I hope you are having a wonderful time, Birgit! (And you too, Ines 🙂 I am very glad I discovered your blog. I have learned about lots of fragrances I most likely wouldn’t have read about otherwise. Thanks for sharing your fragrance experiences with us. Hugs to you.
Thank you, Jim! I am very glad to have you as a reader and commenter! Hugs.
The feeling is mutual, friend.
Enjoy your vacation!!!!
Thank you, BF!
It’s a great weekend when two very lovely perfumistas can practically wave to each other across the Adriatic Sea. Happy vacationing, Birgit and Ines — and happy remaining weekend to everyone else!
Also, thanks for the link love, Birgit. Some of your readers have signed up for the Sharif drawing, and I’m very grateful. ❤
I hope that you are enjoying some fine Italian wine with that antipasti!
I wish I could really wave over to Ines! 🙂
I’m happy you get some traffic from me. The Sharif drawing is great, I dreamt about that bottle recently! 😉
Birgit, with you and a couple other blogging friends on a vacation or on a move August promisses to be a slow, lazy month in my part of Perfumeland. Enjoy your trip and come back rested and with new ideas and stories.
Thank you to the link to my post!
There are many posts scheduled, you won’t know I am away, Undina! 🙂
Thank you for your well wishes!
Yeah, yeah, “they all say that”… Won’t know? Sure… Where is my… (ok, technically, it’s yours) Monday Question this week? 😉
Lol! Sorry! 😉
Definitely Persolaise’s perfume guide should be mass emailed to all London visiting perfumistas 🙂
