Happy Anniversary WAFT !!

UPDATE : C'mon don't be shy !! I'm going to leave this up for a few days while I work on my piece about sandalwood . Coming up in a few...Meanwhile I have some interesting stuff to give away ! ( Saffron James , Annayake , vintage Arpege , vintage Jicky , rare vintage Le Galion...)
It seems appropriate that I give samples away to three lucky readers....Olfacta asked me in the comments what I was giving myself...but I'll give it to you instead , dear readers .
Tell me what your favorite note in perfume is and I'll send you samples of some things...drawing Saturday August 1st !!

Well yes, dah-ling, happy anniversary!

So what are you getting yourself to celebrate?

Ines said...

Happy anniversary! :)
And in order to participate, at the moment, anything with orange blossom and bergamot/citrus notes is definitely my priority (guess that's because the summer is here - finally)...

So many delicious eau de colognes out there...have you ever sniffed SMN eau de Cologne , Ines ?

Ines said...

I know. :) Some has gone right pass me - like Cristalle edt about which I read a review the other day. Where was I looking? :)
No, I didn't try SMN edc, but now you mention it, I'll definitely track it down here.

Happy Anniversary! Wishing you many more to come.

Only one favorite note? Gee that's tough. I would have to say almond,with musk a very close second. Wearing Montale Highness Musk and it is perfect.

Chris G said...

Happy anniversary! My favorite note in perfume is oakmoss (swoon) and I also love jasmine sambac!!

Anonymous said...

Oh my, so many! I've been on a big almond kick for awhile now. Tobacco, too. Circling back to carnation lately. And...feeling like it might be time to go on a mimosa olfactory journey. I have yet to go there! XOXO, Christen

KathyT said...

I have too many to list these days, and I seem to jump from vetiver or sandalwood to florals like tuberose or mimosa. I'm all over the place!

Happy Anniversary!

Since I've already been the lucky recipient of samples from you, I'll take myself out of the draw, but I wanted to say HAPPY ANNIVERSARY. Best wishes for many more!

I'm a day late to the party so my belated wishes for a very Happy Anniversary, Carol!!! Hope you enjoyed a glass of champagne or other libation to celebrate the auspicious occasion...same day as Bastille Day!

Too many favorites to list! But lately I've been craving some figgy goodness...

waftbyCarol said...

Ahhh...figs . I made homemade fig newtons once !!

eldora said...

Happy Anniversary! Love your blog. Hard to say one favorite-maybe leather or tobacco or woods or incense or.....I think you get the idea. Many happy returns!

Rappleyea said...

Carol - I'm pretty fond of indolic jasmine or neroli, but I'll give the place of honor to narcissus.

pavlova said...

Well aren't you nice -- HAPPY ANNIVERSARY to WAFT !!! I love woods and iris and sandalwood and probably other things that my nose is not sophisticated enough to discern !!!

waftbyCarol said...

Thank you for dropping by Eldora and pavlova ! Now to find the right free stuff for the right persons !

Bettina said...

Wow, is it already one year that passed by? You had a great idea a year ago and I enjoy reading your blog. So of course I am looking forward to more and more and more.
Congrats my dear friend Carol!!!
And Happy 1st Anniversary. Counting on seeing you in Grasse next year

waftbyCarol said...

Thanks B !
I still think about that wonderful afternoon we spent together on the rooftop of Rinascente in Florence...seems like just yesterday , in another life...

fountaingirl said...

I just found WAFT, what a neat blog! I hope you keep at it for some time! Anyhow, I think my favorite note may be ambergris.

waftbyCarol said...

Hi fountaingirl and welcome...I used to live in the Bahamas and everyday when I was beach combing I would hope to find some ambregris .
