Last Week In Perfume Land – Weekend Link Love

After almost two weeks absence I am hopelessly behind on reading my favorite blogs. It is impossible to catch everything, but some posts just have to be read, some voices are so interesting and unique, it is a pleasure to come back and discover such treasures.

What struck me most in the past week was a non-perfume related piece of writing by a blogger we all know and love – Muse in Wooden Shoes. She posted an excerpt from her novel. I started reading and couldn’t stop. Take the time and a cup of tea and read her Letter.

Multiple offender Tarleiso of Scentless Sensibilities always secures her spot in these posts by writing such hauntingly beautiful posts about equally haunting perfumes, this time it is a DSH creation – 1000 Lilies.

Persolaise seemed to have a good week as well, despite being on vacation himself. His review of Tauer’s Pentachords makes for an interesting read.

Dee of Beauty on the Outside tells it like it is, in her post about a new niche line offering three perfumes, A Dozen Roses. Does she like them? Go on, and find out!

Another Perfume Blog had the inspired idea to publish a fragrance shopping guide for San Francisco, great! Now I only need a plane ticket! 😉

Liam of Personal Odour wants to become a perfumer, to do that he has risked a lot already, he follows his dream and to make it happen in the real world he had a wonderful idea. Take a look!

And finally my beloved evil scent twin Tommy of The Candy Perfume Boy is part of an interesting project this week and he reviews one of my first niche loves, Ambre Narguilé. I fear for our scent-twin-dom, too many shared loves are coming to light… 😉

The next week is still not back to normal for me, no work, no Kindergarten, and hopefully nice weather.

What are you up to? How are you? I’ve missed you! 🙂

  1. Thanks for the link love Birgit! I will have to start review more Mugler just to restore our evil-scent-twin status 😀

    Until about 40 minutes ago, it was raining cats and dogs here–a sheeting, tropical rain and a very dark dreary sky. So I used my morning to catch up on some blog reading, including a number of them that you’ve included here. There’s been an interesting mix of feelings about the Pentachord series, rather fascinating to read about them across the perfume blogosphere.

    Well, now the sun has come out and everything’s bright and shiny again. Going for a run. Hope you and your readers enjoy the rest of your Sunday!

      Somehow I long for a cleansing summer rain, the air is so fresh afterwards, it lifts my spirits. 🙂 Tara sent me her sample of white after she reviewed it here on OT, and I must say I am not in love, not even in like (yet). But Tauers and I need time…

      Enjoy your run, Suz! Have a great week!

    Hello, Birgit! Summer break is over for me, so I am trying to position myself as well as I can for a full-time teaching position. I think what I will mostly be doing this year is working as a substitute at several nearby schools. I hope I will be called on a lot as I would love to have the experience and as big a paycheck as possible 🙂 I hope you have a wonderful week! Much love.

    Welcome back! I’m glad your back, even though you were nice enough to schedule reading for us while you were gone. 🙂 Thanks for the link, too!

    Thank you Birgit for the link yesterday. It’s great to have you back 🙂
