It was a very stressful week: nothing too serious but a lot of small problems at work and some health issues. I’m feeling better now and ready to deal with everything I need to deal with in the office. But I had the most wonderful weekend including a perfumeeting with Natalie (Another Perfume Blog) that went too fast – as all good things usually do.
It feels like I’m the last person in the Perfumeland who hasn’t tried yet two
last most recent creations from Amouage. New surge of lemmings this week:
Suzanne (Eiderdown Press) about Opus VI: It’s a perfume that has intensity without a ballast, and while that may not sound like a strength, it is what makes Opus VI smell so compelling, because I think we are often drawn to those things we wish to complete.
Thomas (The Candy Perfume Boy) about Beloved: The base is quite similar to that of Amouage’s first fragrance Gold Woman, although it is decidedly less animalic and more refined, it has that golden, shimmering quality to it that softens the heavy musks, balsams and woods. It seems to find that perfect balance between rich and smooth.
Thomas (The Candy Perfume Boy): YouTube frightens me slightly. Maybe I’m just a wimp but despite the wealth of content YouTube has more loons, weirdos (not the good kind) and trolls than any of the other ‘tubes’, including the London Underground, which indeed has its fair share.
Ari (Scent of Self): This book makes an Ikea instruction manual look riveting in comparison. Although if you think about it, Ikea instruction manuals are already sort of suspenseful. Will those suspiciously smiley stick figures be able to properly assemble that Förhöja Wall Cabinet???
Sigrun (fragrantfanatic) tells us about the affair she had while her husband was on a trip: I’d really hoped I’d dislike Angel, considering my husbands opinions on it, but no such luck. The sensation of then sitting in a commuter train and have that…thing…whafting up on me from under my clothes invoked a giggly, exhilarated feeling… Have you read my story Angel of Jealousy?
Since one of the draw winners hasn’t contacted me in a week I used random.org once again. A new winner is Suzanne. Please contact me with your shipping address.
Feel free to share any links – your lemmings, [new] loves or good laughs.
