Enjoy the video, and as always, the stupidly unflattering screenshot it decides to use as a title frame – thanks YouTube! :) x
Ok, in spite of your ‘technical difficulties’, the content was riveting :)
I was glad that you talked about Mandy Aftel’s Fig, as I’ve been wearing it a lot this week. For some weird reason I got the idea that I would get some good lavender notes from Fig, so I ordered samples of the edp and the parfum. Well, not much in the way of lavender, but I really liked whatever was going on and appreciated your take on the notes. The edp was my favorite – it was sharper/brighter which really appeals.
Also the info about Vero Kern’s extrait being offered in the voile/spray form is something I need to explore.
Great video, as always. Funny, a glass of red wine sounds really good right now! :)
Thanks Cymbaline! Glad you enjoyed it and took the time to watch :D
Aw awesome!! Great choice. I’m head over heels for Fig, it’s absolutely beautiful.
I will have to explore the Voile’s too – the Onda has my hopes high!
Let me know if you get your nose on them before me >:D x
Mmmmm, red wine! Enjoyed hearing your take on your favourite Jasmines. I adore Rubj. I didn’t know about the Voile’s, so thanks for sharing that bit of info.
Thanks Melis! Yes the Voile’s are exciting, i’m looking forward to getting my nose on them! Although i’m sure i’ll be broke after….
Loved it – and the technical glitches simply enhanced my viewing pleasure! I agree that Sepia smells brown, and that is all I am saying on that one. ;-) Also interested that you are drawn to wearing perfumes that are not quite your thing. Must try that. And yes, red wine – bring it on. Oh, you were rocking Le Parfum de Therese yesterday! It was very fresh on you.
Thanks Vanessa! I actually realised I missed out Calypso by Ajne… I do really really like that one! It’s just very quiet very quickly.
Thanks :P Hahah, I always find it quite subtle but for some reason it was booming on me then! Had a lovely catchup I look forward to the next one!
This is so entertaining. I don’t actually like jasmine, but I loved watching you and listening to your descriptions. I think I will have to try Aftel’s Fig. It just sounds so curious. Have you tried Laurie Erickson of Sonoma Scent Studio’s Fig Tree? It is a powerhouse fig, that is beyond amazing. I would not wear it, not really my style, but it is a real portrait in gorgeous greens and juicy ripe milky fig. I look forward to more videos. I only just found your blog. Well done, and adorably informative.
I haven’t tried Fig Tree but I’ll be sure to :)
I really need to explore more of SSS, there’s just too many houses out there.
Thanks Tora glad you enjoyed it :D Look forward to hearing from you more round here x
Thank you so much Freddie – I am truly honored to have two perfumes among your favorite jasmines! You seem drawn, like me, to the dirty indole part of these gorgeous fragrances. I love your earnest, honest, smart commentary on perfumes – it’s a real service to your readers & viewers.
Thank you for watching as always mandy! x
