It has been a while since I did my weekly round-up post. It wasn’t because there was a lack of great posts falling into one of the categories I cover: Lemmings – posts that make me want to try (or to buy) a perfume they describe; Laughs – posts that made me laugh (or at least smile); Loves – posts about perfumes I love and wear. But a holiday season combined with the year-end work running-around made my blogs reading irregular and I was usually catching up days later.
Now I’m back and here’s the first post in the series for this year. It’s unusually cold in our area (0C/32F at night – I know, all of you in places with real winters laugh at that but for us it’s really cold) so I decided to blame the weather for the absence of any lemmings: they must have frozen somewhere half way to me.
If you were to name one perfume that recently conjured lemmings for you what would it be?
Sigrun (Riktig Parfym): There are color nerds???? How did that company even come about? I’m picturing two nerds from the 60:ies, one of them very agitated, going: ”No, for the last time, beetroot and fushia ARE NOT THE SAME F***ING COLORS!!! Ok, now I’m gonna lock myself up in my room and map out every single color so we NEVER HAVE TO HAVE THIS CONVERSATION AGAIN”.
Vanessa (Bonkers about Perfume): So today for a laugh, I decided to speak the names of some iconic perfumes into Siri and see what it made of them…
Blacknall (aperfumeblog by Blacknall Allen): These Aliens are no slouches at procreating, it seems, and I remain the only one alienated – a stranger, it would seem, in a strange, smelly land.
Blacknall (aperfumeblog by Blacknall Allen) writes not about a single perfume but about the House that I like: Which will be the next great perfume house? The house that will define early 21st century tastes in scent?
K. or S. (Kafkaesque): Soon, the sun will shine intensely upon the sandy dunes and the dry desert wind will pick up traces of the spices, mixing it with the dust and the scent of Morocco, filling the air with the riches of the ancient spice route and the mysteries of the desert. That is the promise of L’Air du Desert Morocain Eau de Toilette Intense, a unisex fragrance by Tauer Perfumes. And it is a promise that it delivers upon, lock, stock and ten roaring barrels.
