Today Parfumistans Blogg is celebrating seven years. Celebrating is of course a slight exaggeration, when becoming of a certain age, one more or less just notice "birthday again" and don't want to realize another year has flying away.

Autumn is IMO the best season for perfume, almost every fragrance family could be considered as some days are warm and in other there are wintertempratures. The latest week has been
predominantly warm but in the same time dark and windy i.e time fore a wide range of fragrances. I suddenly craved Annick Goutal Eau de Ciel despite this one is almost always described as a spring fragrance. To me Eau de Ciel has some floral notes in common with a more proper fragrance for this season, Serge Lutens Miel de Bois, I think it's the linden/hawthorn notes that are the connection. SL Rahat Loukoum was a very positive surprise and if  I havn't got a sample from Fragrantfanatic, I have never got the idea of testing this true comfortscent. Autumn also mean revival of some of my greatest discoveries this year: The perfumes from the incredible house Oriza L. Legrand, the problem is that the four I have tested so far Rêve de Ossian, Relique d'Amour, Oeillet Louis XV and Déjà le Printemps are all so great that I can't decide which one to invest in the day when my samples runs out, which unfortunately will be soon. Which one I like the most changes with each wearing. Now Relique d'Amour, which I liked the least (everything is relative :-) when testing these in the beginning of the year is a runner up with its smooth and refined fir balm and incense notes. And four new fragrances have been/will be launched from this genuine perfumehouse.....will be hard to handle :-)

  2. Happy Blogoversary! Seven years is an impressive milestone: there are not that many things in my life I've been doing for that long.
    More years to come for your blog!

  3. E, L and U: Thank you so very much! I'm glad your enjoying reading the blog even if it has not "reinvented" itself so much during the years. The first year (in swedish) there was some entries about style also but went to a unmitigated the 2,5 years on the fashion magazine. Unfortunately most of the entries from this time is lost as they are in the publishing system of the magazine.

  4. Congratulations on the seven years, and I wholeheartedly agree on that autumn is the best season for perfume wearing!

  5. Thank you very much looking forward to see you soon :-)

  6. Congratulations on your seven years of blogging, Marguerite! That is quite an accomplishment; not too many perfume blogs have lasted that long.

  7. Thank you so very much S! I'm stubborn and won't give up as easy as many :-)
