OH MY. That is right up my alley. I honestly would love a Silver fruit collection.

This morning I woke up looking for a fragrance I do not have and do not think exists. Dry vanilla, suede, a tiny bit of fresh strawberry with a hint of green stem, and a teeeeeensy smidge of honey (a tiny bit of sweetness to round out the other notes--the other notes being dominant).

Well it might be a bit early but my mind is already turning towards summer scents... I'd love to have some nice fruity and fresh things to wear, especially something with lychee. I love the smell even if I don't enjoy the fruit itself much XD but I do crave it sometimes and it's one of the fruits I don't see in perfumes much.

I think some combination of silver base, white tea, and maybe a hint of sweet grapefruit would be lovely for summer.

I was just thinking about a gorgeous fragrance that Bath and Body Works released for a single Christmas about... yikes... 20 years ago? It was basically gingerbread and clove--heavy on the clove--with a lot of fresh pear in it. Quite beautiful, and I got compliments whenever I wore it--I eked out that one bottle of lotion for months and months. I may have to start experimenting with layering Possets to see if I can approximate it. Maybe Michelle + Guinevere + Gingerbread Whorehouse?

Lovechild - Gingerbaby has that pear/spice thing going on. No clove, I think? But tha.t and Guinevere would probably be divine.

Thank you for the suggestion! I'll give it a try. To me gingerbread has a very different fragrance from fresh ginger, which is what I get from Gingerbaby, but it's definitely worth making the experiment. :)

ETA: Gingerbaby plus Guinevere is a gorgeous combination! I highly recommend it. *swoons*

I have been baking today. I am (for the first time) using a Bourbon vanilla pod in my frosting. I have decided that I REALLY need a Bourbon vanilla perfume. Mmmmmmm sooooo yum. Want, want, want!

I would love some kind of passion flower and guava perfume for summer. I would buy so much of it!

Maya you have to start posting photos of some lovely dishes you make! I'd love to see what you're making. I'm so bored with what we usually have that I'm looking for new things to cook :gaah: Finding vanilla pods around here is a big "yeah right", but I'd love to know how how it works? I couldn't even find cherries here right now for my clafoutis, ugh.
