Do you sometimes take time off from being a Perfumista/fumie/perfume lover?
Are there days that are spent completely unscented?
Are you a regular “user” or does your obsession come and go?
I long to take a break now and again, and today is Pentecost and a Holiday in Austria, so that is what I am doing.
Although I don’t stay unscented, taking a break from anything blog-related (testing, researching, thinking about my particular angle of how to write about a perfume, just being aware of what I smell and how at all times) is welcome now and again.
Just wearing a perfume that I want to wear, without schedules or an agenda is lovely.
Don’t get me wrong, I still love to blog, and I mostly enjoy the attendant, fragrant trial and error journey, but to be passive and let the perfume just be, is something I really enjoy as well.
I’m taking only a small number of decants to the cottage every weekend and try to enjoy and wear those without thinking about them. This weekend and for today’s Holiday, I brought Guerlain Mon Precieux Nectar, Amouage Beloved, Dior Patchouli Imperial and Guerlain Pamplelune.
Not wearing a perfume at all? There must be a major reason. Either extreme physical discomfort or a situation that doesn’t allow me to (thankfully that is not happening often).
What about your vacations from smelling? Do you take any?
