Just a few days back, we celebrated my Mum’s birthday. As a gift, I made decants of a couple of fragrances that I thought she might like, so that she can use them while I’m away in London:
L’Instant de Guerlain
Guerlain’s Lys Soleia
Annick Goutal’s Le Mimosa
Maison Martin Margiela’s Funfair Evening (Actually, this was a gift from my Mum to me! So technically it doesn’t really count)
Badgley Mischka Eau de Parfum
Prada’s Infusion de Fleur d’Oranger
Happy Birthday, Mum!
Most of them are floral, with a bit of an oriental twist. My Mum usually complains about how much I’m spending on fragrances but when I give her some, she stops. Perhaps that’s a worthy strategy for those of you with family members who are disapproving of the hobby to consider. If you can’t stop them, you might as well win them over to your side. I’d like to know what your friends/family think about you spending on perfumes, and how you respond to them!
In other news, summer’s almost over, and I’m very excited to be heading back to London, where sniffing opportunities abound! I’ve got to watch the wallet, though! Now to think about what to wear on the long flight, to keep me from being bored without smothering everyone else around…
