Gibellini Wood: Unexpected Finds at Lidl Stores

 Sometimes surprises come in the guise of super market shopping. The German supermarkets Lidl are known for their thrift store policies and odd placement of products on shelves (with the crate). 

Among those products and trinkets lies fragrance too! Suddenly Madame Glamour is a well transmitted Coco Mademoiselle eau de toilette dupe, but there are other scents as well. 

Below is Wood by Giblini, a brand for men. Imagine my surprise and quiet wonder when I found out it's a dupe for Terre d'Hermes! It starts off harsher, to be honest, which is not that surprising, especially given the under 5€ price asked (!), but the heart and drydown smell quite close to the original citrus woody indeed. It looked rather lonely, so I took it home... 

And here it is.

The Christmas chills of Liturgie des Heures (Jovoy)

 This glorious resinous scent of cool frankincense is pure magic at this time of the year!  I absolutely love La Liturgie des Heures by Jovoy; its goth spirit, chilling, cool, anchorite is perfect for someone like Wednesday Addams. 

Here are some photos that I took.
