A week ago it was cool, rainy and dreary. Even though I’m on the East Coast, it reminded me of my first fall/winter in Seattle. I was neck deep in my nostalgia. I couldn’t continue the day unless I had a warm tea pot full of lapsang souchong that I sipped while wearing fingerless gloves. I started thinking about the perfumes I wore then – things like YSL Opium and Karl Lagerfeld KL. But, really I define that time by a single perfume, DSH
For many, many years now, I’ve been a fan girl of the DSH Perfumes line. The brand has an extensive catalog that at times can be very overwhelming. But, it’s been my experience that no matter what I end up trying, I end up liking. Now there are exceptions, but those exceptions are always perfumes that I just “like” instead of “love” or “completely and totally obsessed with”. Dawn’s style agrees with me. I can’t imagine living in a world without her perfumes.
Rose Week 2016
DSH Perfumes L’Opera des Rouges et des Roses is a perfume in the collection “Giverny in Bloom” created for the Denver Art Museum. This “scent experience” celebrates Monet’s gardens. This collection consists of four scents. Le Jardin Vert is a lush, green scent that represents foliage. Le Danse de Bleus et Violettes is a cool violet floral. And there’s L’Opera des Rouges et des Rouges which is a lovely rose floral. The last scent in the collection is Giverny in Bloom
DSH Perfumes has launched a few perfumes for the holiday season. I usually give DSH perfumes their own review unless they are in a specific collection; however, I’m so behind on reviewing. I’ve been busy. So, I decided to give brief reviews so you can start trying these now if you’re interested. Otherwise, it’s going to take me months. And who wants to wait months?
I love carnation fragrance but I feel like there aren’t many to choose from. There’s a couple of old classics and there’s a few modern scents (that are less soliflore-y). When you think about how many rose soliflores there are, you’d expect more than a handful of carnations. But, that’s the way it is. Carnation is usually the back up singer.
