The weather app on my phone tells me that it's 29 degrees outside and feels like 15 with the windchill. Technically it's already spring, which means it's time to look at my notes and see what I wore this winter. As always, there are the staples, but the most exciting part is looking at the new discoveries that have become cherished friends.
Shalimar. In any formulation, from various years. If I can't think of anything else I wear Shalimar.
Mitsouko. Mostly in extrait, but also vintage PDT and EDT. As a matter of fact, I'm wearing it right now.
Balmain- Jolie Madame. I think the cats have begun to smell of it.
Parfum d'Empire- Musc Tonkin. Had been in my collection for over a year now, and I actually had cravings for it over the winter.
Aftelier- Cuir de Gardenia. At this point I think it's the best gardenia perfume I know.
Costume National- Scent Intense. I upgraded from the mini I had to a full bottle (which ended up to be the best cheap thrill of the season).
Scents by Alexis- Body Made Luminous. The husband surprised me with a bottle, which adds to the joy of this breathtaking chocolate perfume.
Etat Libre d'Orange- La Fin du Monde. I've been wearing it about twice a week since before Christmas, and can't see myself stopping.
Used up too many samples, must get a bottle NOW:
Masque Milano- Montecristo. The most exciting offering from one of the best new lines.
Parfums MDCI- Nuit Andalouse. A dream of summer nights saved several dreary winter days.
What were the perfumes that helped you deal with winter?
