You know, I should challenge myself to start wearing and test-driving fragrances on a regular basis, now that Kuri has sent me all of these decants...
Sand and Sable by Coty; Caron Farnesiana (mimosa and almonds? I'm in); an almondy-buttery fragrance that Kuri and I are still trying to track down, but smells really nice on me; YSL Cinema, and Shiseido White Rose, which is exclusive to Japan.
4711, followed by Barbara Bui and Agnes B. Le Petit b.b. (yes, Scribey, agnes b. pour les bebes), plus Body Shop's Indian Gardenia, PanAme Jean Patou, and Estee Lauder's Pure White Linen.
And then there's these...
Weekend by Burberry for Women, which Kuri and I are mourning because the bottle broke in the middle of transit (I blame customs in Manila for that one), yet left a gorgeous scent all over the packing material... I'm actually using the stuff to scent my closets, in fact! (Wonder if I should try the other Burberry scents next?) And on the right, without any doubt: my beloved Chanel No. 5.
Do I smell (pun intended) another ongoing series of blog entries here?
As you can see, this is enough fragrance to last me through the rest of the year... including the typhoon season, when the air is colder and not as overwhelmingly humid. But it does pose the challenge of comparing these fragrances with one another, seeing what works for my body chemistry (even though I know nothing about sillage and all that jazz) so I can use them as a jump-off point for future purchases in the horizon. This should be a lot of fun!
