A thought about perfume posts I would like to share with you

We launched this blog 3 years ago and I am happy to say that we have never stopped. Ok, we had better months, but this blog is a window to our past, to our discovers, encounters and real life. There are just some periods where you don't feel like posting, or you are in the ''I'll do it'' mood. We started off sharing things we loved, that inspired us and that we wanted to share: I love looking back and still find most of the post still exciting and inspiring. It is a sort of database for us and for curious people. What about perfumes? I have been trying I would say at least hundred perfumes in the last month and this, of course, made me talk about perfumes more than before. I learned a lot, I met great people, I read books, I tested perfumes on my skin, I bought samples on the internet, I got essencial oils, I visited a perfume factory, I went to the perfume fair in florence, I visited more than 40 perfume stores in Milan and Florence, I went to the perfume museum in Paris.... and I enjoy reading other bloggers comments and reviews. This is where I wanted to get. There are some great perfume blogs around the internet which I follow and read with pleasure, which are constantly updated on the news and publish at least once a day. Even if I would love to do so, I want to share with you that I feel like sharing my impressions and discovers whenever I think a perfume deserves my time some words from me. I would like to keep writing with passion and joy, so I would mostly talk about personal impressions without going into deep in objective descriptions which are better explained on other blogs which I soon will link on the right side of the blog. I also wanted to share this: I don't review perfumes that I hate. That's such a waste of time, and I don't want to waste time on writing about something that I don't enjoy. I talked about perfumes I wouldn't wear, but I had something personal to say about them and that's, I believe, makes the internet informations unique and useful. Perfume takes us to a journey around the world and beyond it. I'm inspired by people's intimate impressions, visions, detailed descriptions and that's what I would like to keep doing while reviewing perfumes. 

I had this in mind for a couple of weeks and I had to write it down and share it with you because I did't know where I was going talking about all these perfumes! 
What do you think? 


  1. Spero si possa rispondere in italiano. Capisco il mood e condivido pienamente. Apprezzo chi prova a mettersi a nudo parlando dei sentimenti che un profumo evoca in lui/lei. Spesso ci si sente stupidi, perchè si è portati a dire cose senza sapere nemmeno perchè. Credo sia questa la magia delle fragranze che tanto apprezziamo o che tanto odiamo. Che bel blog Andrea! : )

  2. Certo che si può rispondere in Italiano! Ti ringrazio per il commento e mi ha fatto molto piacere che tu condivida. Parlare in maniera spontanea e personale è la cosa che mi viene più semplice fare e che mi dà più soddisfazioni mentre scrivo. Questo post è stato giusto un mio memorandum. Ti ringrazio per i complimenti e presto, appena riesco, sarai inserito nei link a lato della pagina ;) ovviamente! Ciao!
