I Didn't Vanish

The lure of travelling got the better of me these past few days, for those wondering what happened to their daily dosage of Perfume Shrine. Fragrant sirens had been singing their lulling song for long and demanded my capitulating. I never managed to post a little tidbit for my readers before going, since the preparation for these trips is so rushed and busy, but it's amazing what can one do between and during flights these days, so here I am now.

There will be some scheduled posts appearing shortly: First of all, a review of the super rare Dior-Dior, which was discontinued ages ago ~my perserverence to get a small houndstooth bottle of it paid off~ and the accompanying lucky draw for a winner. Reviews of the new Lancome Magnifique, a woody fragrance for women, along with my thoughts on this latest "trend", as well as a review of the latest Perfumerie Generale's Oiseau de Nuit, a rich, seductive fragrance.
A new Series, one of the most respected and popular features on Perfume Shrine, focusing on a specific material, which I hope will excite you.
Travel Memoirs will continue with more additions, taking you away into some of the scented pilgrimages on my path to Scentdom Come.
And of course lots of other news, musings, info articles, advertising and surprises as well!

Hope to virtually see you all again really soon and read your always interesting and stimulating comments. I will try to pop in and reply as circumstances allow. Thank you all for the continued support, it warms my heart.

  1. Good to see you back! Your writing is lovely!

  2. Can't wait for your report on Dior-Dior! Hope you had a chance to really unwind on the trip.

  3. Looking forward to the new posts, I just came back yesterday myself. The trip was wonderful, and I hope yours has been as well!

  4. Can't wait to read about Dior-Dior!! I managed to score a tiny decant of it from a generous POL-er, but she warned me ahead of time that the juice had surely turned. It had. It smells very rotten, and not at all like the blend of narcissus (!!) and woods that I was expecting. Tell me something has narcissus and I'm there.

    I can't wait to read the new posts! Have a nice journey and take care!

  6. Glad to see you back! I'm also intrigued by Dior-Dior, but even more excited by a new series. You do an incredible job with those. I always learn a ton from them.

  7. Yay, your back. I was beginning to worry.
