When the temperature starts to dip and it gets crisp it seems almost immediate that my mind snaps back to a favorite topic... perfume. A changing of the guards. Back go the simple, light, fresh florals and soapy cleanness and out come things of a more ominous nature. This year as I was picking though everything it dawned on me that nothing was new. These were all fall/winter standbys. It also made me wonder if the ultimate pick me up would be something lighter and summery even?
I went a little out of control searching with one new scent making me smell like an old forgotten book and another leaving me wanting to eat my arm. Typical weirdoness I was supposed to be moving away from so we'll just gloss over that and go straight to something sweeter. Crazylibellule and the Poppies has made available (in the US) some scents that are outside their typical solid stick form and while they are all very summery, I attempted to pick out one with some cold weather possibilities. The one, L'Olfactive 129 is dreamy. It smells like candied strawberry leaves, ylang ylang and honey and then transforms into pure warm honey and amber. It's fleeting, simply composed and young but oh so good and who can resist the little book dangling off? I'm thinking of giving it to a very sweet girl in my life come spring.
I'll be back with more soon as the quest continues. Do you have any favorites? Please share!
