What I Wore This Week

Hi, everyone! Happy Sunday! As usual, I’m back with my weekly round-up.

  • Monday: Figue Amère by Miller Harris
  • Tuesday: Honeysuckle & Davana by Jo Malone
  • Wednesday: Magnolia Nobile by Acqua di Parma
  • Thursday: La Religieuse by Serge Lutens
  • Friday: Simone by Tocca
  • Saturday: Simone by Tocca

Tocca’s Simone is a new purchase, and I’ll write more about it in my next post about my low buy for 2019.

A programming note: I did not have a weekly post up this week. I’ve been adjusting to some new iron supplements prescribed by my doctor and they are tough. I’m going through a period of feeling more run down before I feel better. Thank you for bearing with me!

What did you all wear this past week?

  1. I hope you feel better soon!

    Those full bottles look stunning! Best photo yet!!

    I have a just about empty bottle of Tocca Brigitte and I have to say the bottle is a work of art.

    My middle child came home briefly from university and brought back the non summer scents she took with her so I was reacquainting myself with some of those, testing new stuff, thunking almost done samples, layering fragrances and wearing some of my full bottles….this week was New Haarlem, Meteorites, Berdoues Violette and Violette Divine, UN Air de Bretagne, Kyse Lavender something (can’t remember the name), Casmir, JM Orris Sandalwood and Juniper and Cedarwood, Paramela, Vintage 24 Faubourg overlayed with Neroli (don’t know the brand), Pour UN Homme, Tracy Reese, Yes I Do and Santo Incienso. I think next week I might just stick with one fragrance for the entire week!!!! 😁

    1. Frollino Lavanda Kyse Perfumes is the name. Smells like lavender shortbread cookies. The company also makes a fig one which dries down to a sweet cream which is out of this world. I also love that the company sells 1 , 3, 15,30,60 and 100 ml ranging in price from $1.75 to $80.00 for the largest size. Highly affordable. If I didn’t already have so much I would seriously consider a 15 ml of the creamy fig one …. even the shipping is cheap….only three dollars!

      1. Lavender shortbread cookies sound good to me! 😄 I also love just about any fig scent. This will have to be added to the always on-going list to try!

    2. I love that you have Tocca Brigitte! I adore the Tocca bottles but I notice that they’re a tiny bit different for the newest releases, Maya and Gia. I prefer the original bottle designs with the beautiful caps!

      Wow, that’s a lot of fragrance!!! It’s nice that your middle kid brought everything back home. I would have lost samples all over my dorm room! (There’s a reason I hadn’t started collecting yet back then!)

      1. Ha ha! That was my eldest, always losing samples and Decants. Four years ago I sent her off to college with a whole bunch of niche and indie stuff and she used to have sniffing parties with her college friends including guys! It was nice for them all to get to experience stuff that would have normally been out of their price range

        1. That’s so fun that her friends all got to test out some of the good stuff!

          My college bff is also into perfume. (She’s a Guerlain fan for sure.) We talk about scents now, but I don’t think samples and decants were as common a decade ago when we were in school. And we definitely couldn’t afford to buy everything then just to sniff it 😄

  2. I hope you’ll feel better soon.

    I worked from home through being sick for the most of the week, so I didn’t wear perfume much but mostly done some testing.

    I have a question: do you remove caps on purpose for taking pictures, or do you keep your perfumes like that?

    1. Thank you! I hope you’re also feeling better.

      I remove the caps on purpose! The Acqua di Parma cap in particular is very reflective and I don’t like taking photos of it. For this photo, I thought it looked best with all the caps removed. I definitely store the bottles with their caps though!
