Blog Anniversary - 8 years today

Today it's eight years since my first entry (in swedish) on old "Parfumistans dagbok" = "The diary of Parfumista". It was about my long time passion for perfume, my first perfumememories of my mothers signaturefragance Dior Diorissimo etc. Looking back, if I had put all the effort that I put in blogging and the money spend in perfume in managening a stock portfolio instead, I would be halfway to be financially independent by now :-). On the other hand, I  probably would have smell less intricate.

Perfumes I crave and wear at the moment:


Guerlain L'Heure Bleue Edt & Edp (vintage): Both magnificent, Edt airier, drier and with an almost herbal touch, Edp dark and like velvet in texture, sweeter and with more flowery notes.

YSL Opium Edt (current): I love also the current formula, deep, spicy, dark woody. Perfect for fall and winter and with a excellent longevity.

Montale Aoud Red Flowers Edp: A non-oudy oud from Montales oud-line. Lipstick texture, tagets with traces of tobbacco. Sort of vintage feeling.

Farmacia SS Annunziata Gelsorosa Edp: The best jasmine (supported by orangeblossom and tubereuse) I have tested so far. Intensive and musky-animalic.

Chanel Cuir de Russie Edt: Powdery, aldehydic, leather, with a lipstick texture. Like the smell from inside an elegant purse.

PS: Out of nostalgia I publish this post at 14:02 PM exactly the same moment as the first entry eight years ago.

  4. Congratulations on your blog anniversary!
    Eight years is a very significant accomplishment!

    Looking at the post I can see that we have at least two things in common - Chanel Cuir de Russie (love it!) and missing spaces between some words (mine happen because my cat Rusty once got scared, jumped and landed on the keyboard - and since then my Space bar works not every time).

  5. Thank you so much for your nice words U.It took many years to "click" with CdR but it was worth the waiting. I think the misssing spaces comes from 1) writing too fast 2) in swedish many words which are separated in two words in english, are written in on word.

  6. Happy Blogoversary No. 8, Margareta! You might not be halfway to being financially independent, but your detour into perfume obsession has you smelling wonderful. :) Love your inclusion of Cuir de Russie on the list of things you're craving and wearing at the moment.

  8. Congratulations on the 8 years!!! That is an amazingly long time in the blogosphere. Its interesting what you say about managing a stock protfolio, I've just enrolled in a bunch on Internet classes related to data mining (after reading that data is the new oil and that statisticians will be the sexiest job group of the upcoming decade, once too many). Good thing that my perfume interest blossomed before... :)

  9. Thank you very much S! Your new knowledge in statistics would be perfect to combine in a potential career as HFT-trader (high frequency trading). That could finance the perfumehobby :-)
