Recommend Me a Perfume : March 2016

We have our “Recommend Me a Perfume” thread this week. You can use this space to ask any questions about perfume, including fragrance recommendations.

The photo below is of a bluebell forest near Brussels. This forest was destroyed during WWI and most of the trees we see today have been replanted in the 50s. But the wild hyacinth bluebells regenerated on their own and every spring they turn the Hallerbos into a blue tinted and intensely perfumed fairy tale. In Bluebell Forest of The Hallerbos, I described my Belgian springtime ritual. Happy Easter!
