...I haven't been keeping up with my weekly posts after the lack-luster response I got to the Lilac thread. But I'll give it another go. So let's do recaps of our 2015 Scent Journeys. How was your scent journey this year? What did you discover? anything blow your mind? Any Disappointments? What surprised you? Did you expand your collection? What are you still hunting for? What are your plans for next year? Are you happy with your reviews? What did you manage to mark off your test or review list? Anything non-scent related you want to share?What did you discover?So, looking back at 2015, I learned that I love the houses Byredo (which I will never afford), Pacifica and Black Phoenix Alchemy lab. I also discovered that I am crazy about classic Lavender scents Like Versace Dreamer, and Caron Pour un Homme. What did you manage to mark off your test or review list?It's been a slow year of reviews for me because I haven't reviewed anything since I got pregnant. I'm afraid the crazy hormones might cause a misperception of the scent and skew my review. I haven't tested many of my samples either for the same reason. I've got quite the back-log now. Did you expand your collection?I have added quite a few things to my collection this year, vintage and new. I've collected all the Scents in the Elizabeth Taylor line. I haven't been disappointed in any of them, though I think I wear the original White diamonds the least. White Diamonds Lustre and Diamonds and Rubies have been rocking my world most recently. Passion for men and my vintage Black Pearl are always favorites, however. I've also added quite a few Lolita Lempicka's to my collection. I just adore her scents and the bottles are so lovely. I hope to collect all those adorable apples one day. I actually picked up four new Pacifica Scents yesterday and discovered I really love the Mexican Cocoa. Something about it just does it for me. I went and ordered a back up bottle a few moments ago. What are you still hunting for?I've added Vintage Cinnabar to my Vintage look out list. I realized it's one of the classics I really miss and must acquire. I've also added Vintage Estee (not the super perfume) to the look out list, a woman I sometimes see at work wears it, and she always smells so amazing. I wonder if the new version smells as good as the vintage. That would be easier to find. I also would like to pick up a Bottle of Bond No 9 So New York and Bond No 9 I love New York for all. I want more coffee in my life. I am still on the lookout for a bottle or even a 20-30ml decant of Thierry Mulger's Pure Coffee. Then there is the ever going hunt for a bottle of the Black Cashmere (mouse bottle) that I can afford. Any Disappointments? I didn't have too many disappointments this year. The biggest ones would probably be Trésor Midnight Rose and Trésor L'Absolu de Parfum. Oh and Cachet. I got a new bottle of it and it's unbearable. It's probably the worst perfume I've encountered. No resemblance to the original at all. I really should just toss it in the bin.What are your plans for next year?Next year (after I have this baby) I hope to start reviewing everyday again. I hope I wont be to rusty at it. There are some of my earliest reviews that I would also like to revisit and improve. Anything non-scent related you want to share?Well we are still looking for a house to buy. Fingers crossed it comes soon. I have to tell my landlord about the termites when she comes to walkthrough the house in the next few weeks. I am terrified she will want to fumigate while I still live there. I really think it's a bad idea while I'm pregnant, and well, we have no money for a hotel for 4 days and no one to stay with. If we could get a dang contract on a house I could try and stall her until I move out. Besides the housing thing life is moving along well for us. The baby is Due April 25 and it's going to be a girl (Finally!). I have two boys so a girl is most welcome. We decide to name her Alice Leilani. Alice after my late grandmother and Leilani because that's my husbands favorite name.
