Dropping in for my bi-monthly visit here at A Bottled Rose. About a year ago I heard the most wonderful word used on the radio, sometime around 4.00am. I sleep with BBC World Service playing softly at the side of the bed. I often hear interesting things but have no recollection when I wake up. However on this occasion I got up and wrote the word down. I have been waiting ever since to present it in a post.
Forgive me those who are familiar with the word, I was not. It covers a host of events and situations in life.
I will in this case use it in relation to my feelings regarding the current perfume scene. My anticipation at new releases and the continual disappointment that follows. Anticappointment.
Perfume is subjective, we all know that, I name no names. Nine out of ten things that I sniff are awful and the one out of ten that isn’t is not what I would buy. Hahahaha – it makes you wonder that I don’t just give up, huh?
To give up an addiction one first has to want to, and I don’t.
Before anyone jumps out at me, I know there is good new stuff, but let us be honest here, it’s few and far between.
Fear not. I still have classic signs of addiction. I recently bought 50mls of Dior”s discontinued Mitzah from a perfumista friend who scored a half gallon in Paris.
I tried it once years ago and did not like it. LMAO. But I have moved on and I reckon I am gonna love it now. It was shipped to Tara and I will get it next week.
Which brings me nicely to my ramblings. I’m heading to London tomorrow, along with BlondesWunder, and as you read this we will be in Pack’n’Panic mode.
I will get two full days with Tara, an evening with Portia, time with Bonkers Vanessa, a meet up with Megan In St Maxime, and most of us are going to The Art and Olfaction Awards. Keep your eyes out on my Instagram …
I have a date with a favourite blogger, (to be revealed in my next post) and together we will spend some time with Nathalie Vinciguerra, the founder and CEO of Anima Vinci. These perfumes excite me and come highly recommended. Stay tuned.
What perfume will I wear to the Art and Olfaction Awards? I hear you ask. Why Vero Profumo of course. Naja Eau de Parfum, including notes of red apple and leather. Launch date to be announced.
Have you ever been anticappointed?
