My mother always tells me that I’m just too sparing. That’s why it is a rare thing to see here a review of a product that feeds your ego and not your soul.
One of my weaknesses though(although I’m not giving in) are parfumes. I can sit for hours in the perfumery trying to guess the notes of the scent I just liked. I have this feeling that the smell from our senses is probably the closest thing to the magic that happens in our heads. One random breeze of a familiar scent and thousands of forgotten memories come back as if they happened yesterday.
So today I will tell you about one of the 3 perfumes I have in my life since maybe 6-7 years. Yes. You read this right. I don’t like bathing with 50ml of liquid, that I bought for $150, neither to be compulsive to the others. I like light scent that comes to me when I approach a stranger. Thats why I try to be the same for the others.
As some of you know Paris is my unexpected big love and everything that reminds me of it is welcome in my life.
My story with this french jewel began last Christmas. I decided to purchase a perfume for my mom from Parfimo.bg. Unfortunately it became present for the New Years eve. But they put in the box 2 testers of the perfume Place Vendôme Boucheron. I was so fascinated when I saw the bottles. And the scent was magical! A bit of jasmine, little sweetnes and being not so light made me fall in love with it. I definately can’t tell which season is the best for it. Or if its more appropriate to use it by day or by night but for a person like me who tends to use one perfume for a really long time this type of practicality is perfect.
I really liked it back then. But I had no desire at all to buy it. Until I went to Paris again, started dreaming, came back
and stumbled upon Venera Cosmeticsс a lot of times in Instagram and all around the Internet. So I purchased it from there and it turned out they are really nice, which is really important to me. I have a couple of not so pleasant experiences with perfumes purchased from the Internet. That’s why and because of the really nice price they had there, I was completely sure that this one will not smell like the testers, and will not last as long as they at all! Until now I’m still testing it and I can tell you – every time it lasts more than 6-7h. And the quality is absolutely equal to the testers.. read this like: they are originals like almost no other perfumes on the Internet. Which was one big shock for me and my prejudices.
There is something in this package. In the way you feel after you put this scent on you. As if everything around you becomes a bit better. A bit more Parisian. More special. If you like scents that leave you in the smell of the others this one is like that. If you also like unobtrusive perfumes that are great for every occasion, I recommend that you do not pass it on in the perfumeries, even though it’s not the most mainstream perfume right now, neitier the most advertised one. It is certainly unique. And if it fits you, it’s going to be unforgettable aswell.
Which is your favorite perfume right now? And why you chose it? I would love to know! :)
