Recommend Me a Perfume : First of the Year

Today we have our “Recommend Me a Perfume” thread, the first one this year. 2014 started for me with a celebration at home, but for most of the month I have been on the road. When I travel, especially when it’s for work, surrounding myself with my favorite objects is essential for creating a cozy atmosphere. I always pack my soft fleece blanket that folds into a small bundle, miniature rose scented candles, a spray bottle of orange blossom water, and of course, perfume. On the last couple of trips I brought Guerlain Shalimar Ode à la Vanille, which feels caressing and tender.

Bois de Jasmin will return on January 31st. My work and travel schedule is going to be heavy over the next couple of weeks.

I’m also taking time out to do some overdue blog maintenance. Hope that the changes will make your experience here more enjoyable, but in the meantime, please excuse any quirks, especially if you read Bois de Jasmin on your mobile devices.

Recommend Me a Perfume : December Spices

Today we have our “Recommend Me a Perfume” thread. The whole month of December my kitchen smells of spices as I bake cookies scented with honey, cardamom, cinnamon and orange zest. I enjoy the process of mixing the spices as much as the cookies themselves, and so whenever I have a spare moment, I’m cutting out gingerbread hearts and dipping honey cakes in chocolate.

Recommend Me a Perfume : November Comfort

Bois de Jasmin will return on Friday, November 8th, and today we have our “Recommend Me a Perfume” thread. In case you’re wondering, the furry beast looking cute and cuddly in the title photo is Viola. She lives with my mom and usually spends her days destroying house plants, playing with curtains and galloping around the house like a mad pony. But whenever anyone wants to be comforted, she’s happy to assist.

I’ll check in when I have a moment, but my internet connection is going to be intermittent.

Recommend Me a Perfume : September Rain

Bois de Jasmin will return on Monday, October 7th, and today we have our “Recommend Me a Perfume” thread. Autumn has started and there is no mistaking its nutty, damp scent of fallen leaves, musty chrysanthemums past their prime and bitter chestnut shells. Despite the chill and rains, I love the quirky beauty of fall and all of its scents. My perfume wardrobe now welcomes a few favorites that didn’t feel right during the dog days of summer: Kenzo Jungle L’ElephantLolita Lempicka and Bulgari’s intensely smoky Black.

My internet connection is intermittent this week, but I will join you whenever I can.
