There is still time… I’m not asking about perfumes you have already bought as a gift for yourself this year or orchestrated to appear under your tree (we’ll talk about it next week). But if you were to send a wish to the North Pole, and you couldn’t wish for a World peace, health or anything else equally worthy, but you could wish for any perfume that is currently available (so, no “original Shalimar” or “well-preserved vintage Opium”) – what would it be?
Saturday Question #144:
What Perfume Would You Wish To Find under the Tree This Year?
It doesn’t have to be something uber-rare or expensive (but it can!) – but what would bring you joy had it just appeared there?
Just a couple of months ago, had you asked me, I wold have told you that I didn’t have anything I really would like to get. But recently I discovered 2 perfumes that I want to get – so, I would not mind if Santa Clause would have decided to support me in my “no-buy” resolve.
The first one is Papillon Artisan Perfumes Hera. As I was reading all the raving reviews, I didn’t really expect to like this perfume. I love it! I’m amazed how well Liz Moores has caught that modern classic/vintage vibe. My only wish would be to have this perfume in a flacon with a stopper: it seems wrong to spray that type of fragrance.
The second one is Nude by Bill Blass. I’ve never known this perfume before I smelled it last week from a new acquaintance of my vSO’s mother who came to my MIL’s birthday celebration. It was an impressive chypre! So, if Santa Clause’s route will not pass by my beautiful (although artificial) tree, which is given since I’m not writing him a letter, I will investigate if it comes in different versions – and if yes, which one I should try. But it seems like a very inexpensive experiment, even if I end up not liking it.
How about you?
