I’v been skin testing my last Bouquet Blanc mod and am pleased with it. I think I can send some testers out soon. I’m trying a couple little variatons but the overall balance seems good. Maybe it’ll come out in time for Australian spring, lol.
I tried a sample of the new Tauer LOTV and like it — the LOTV note is not at all the harsh chemical type and the base has nice soft amber and woods notes with a touch of leather. It’s an interesting green floral with a soft amber/woods base that is totally different from classic LOTV scents like Diorissimo but is instead a different take on the theme. I’ll be curious to hear how it does for others. (Edited to add: It’s scarily strong when you open the vial and a drop will do you. My whole sample bag smells of it even though I got four other samples in that bag as well. Potent. )
I’m resting my wrists and it’ll be a while longer. Making progress but I pushed them too far to have a quick recovery this time. Frustrating but just the way it goes sometimes. I’ve been cleaning up my workspaces and putting the time to good use. Will be nice to be more organized. I’ll report back on BB, and I’ll get back to Opal too.
