PURPLE FLOWERS WEEK 2017

It’s an annual tradition on EauMG to feature “purple flowers” on the week of Nowruz/Vernal Equinox. “Purple flowers” are what I call flowers that (usually) have purple blossoms and bloom in spring: lilacs, violets, iris, heliotrope, hyacinth and wisteria (when I’m feeling generous).

Shelley Kyle Sorella

I always say that your fragrance tastes don’t necessarily change with time, but they expand. My blog will turn six years old in month. I have so many posts documenting my perfume likes and dislikes. And it’s safe to say that my perfume tastes have expanded, especially over the past two years. I’ve found myself less drawn to “moody” oriental scents and more drawn to florals than ever.
