Nothing, but nothing is catching my eye enough to write anything more than a sentence or two about it, so it’s time for just a general march of the perfumes:
Profumum Neroli — This is a pretty great Neroli perfume. Light, effervescent on the open with some interesting long-lasting depth, while not losing that bubbly, beautiful open. I love it, but what in the world is Profumum doing raising prices to $240 for 100 ml?!?!? Last time I priced them, they were like 180-190, which was bad enough. This is ridiulcous.
Profumum Dambrosia — weird on the open, really figgy in the drydown, which lasted overnight. I woke up to the smell of figs on my hands, which was lovely. Again, see complaint about Profumum above
Yvona K. Possessive — biiiiiiiig white floral on the open, but it turns into a really beautiful little soft white floral that’s charming.
Montale Aoud Red Flowers – this is one of my favorites of the Aoud flowers series. There’s a sweetness to it that distracts from the oud bitterness, like a blend between the sweeter Montales and the more bitter ouds. Was this one renamed something else? A really annoying Montale habit.
My new favorite incense? You have to trust me on this because I try them all. Fred Soll. He’s got clumps of dried stuff on his incense sticks, all hand made, and it burns beautifully and for about 2-3 hours per stick, it sets of a great cloud of whatever flavor you’re burning. You can get myrrh, incense, white sage, pinon, cinnamon, nag champa, etc. I came downstairs today after my run, and it smelled like a wonderful cozy fire had been burning somewhere. Gorgeous stuff.
