I didn’t count (for a change) but I have a feeling that last week there were fewer posts in my main blog-roll (list on the right) and in all other RSS feeds. Spring? Esxence2012? I don’t know. But as I promised in the beginning I won’t force myself to mention anything just for the sake of posting. So this issue will be a short one.
It seems like the Blogosphere is divided into two groups: those who have already tried Amouage Opus VI and written enticing reviews and those who read all the reviews and try to control the population of lemmings resulting from that activity. Though I cannot blame Dee (beauty on the outside) solely for these lemmings (several lemming above are just trying to catch up with all the rest from the Episode 1 ) she contributed her part: Spraying Opus VI on skin for the first time is a little like seeing a Stormtrooper remove his helmet to reveal the long glossy hair and full lips… of a woman. There is a dissonance that can’t be reconciled, because, of course, Stormtroopers are men. Well, all but this one.
This isn’t coming from a blog but I’ll mention it here since my first reaction after reading about Chanel releasing a limited edition of Chanel N°19 Body Cream was “WANT!” But I don’t think I’ll ever warrant spending $80 on a body cream even for one of my most favorite perfumes. On the other hand, body lotion goes for “just” $50… Hmm…
Vanessa (Bonkers about Perfume) reviews Denyse Beaulieu’s new book, “The Perfume Lover”: … despite stopping out till 2am every night in a fairly receptive frame of mind to any possibilities the night might bring, the only “something-on-skin action” I ended up with was a bad grass allergy from afternoons spent sunbathing in the Maria Luisa park…
Ines (All I am – a redhead) about my most favorite Neela Vermeire’s perfume Bombay Bling: The opening reminds me of a fizzy mango drink, as it were made with tonic, you know, lightly herbal (or green) and citrusy but mango is still the most prominent note.
Feel free to share any links – your lemmings, [new] loves or good laughs.
