Here comes the obligatory pre-vacation question for you:
What do you take with you on vacation?
Do you bring decants? One beloved full bottle (or seven)? Samples only?
Do you rely solely on your perfume shopping at your destination?
Do you bring a wide selection fitting every mood or do you set a theme for the entire time with a select few scents?
How does your perfume hobby influence your travels?
Usually I bring one bottle that I declare the bottle of the year and a few samples or small decants to provide some change when needed.
I do plan to smell and possibly buy perfume when abroad, so I know I always end up with more bottles on the way home than I leave with.
This year I will probably make either Hermès Eau de Merveilles or Acqua di Parma Acqua Nobile Iris my bottle of the year. Although Atelier Cologne Oolang Infini and Cartier Baiser Volé EdP are also still in the running. (Unfortunately Malle’s Eau de Magnolia is out since the husband – inexplicably – is not a fan.)
What do you bring (for your real or imagined vacations)?
And please help me along a bit – for which of the four perfumes above would you vote?
Which one shall be my bottle of the year 2014?
