February 19th

Well, I beat HuniePop. Now I just want to unlock all the achievements and 100% the game. Because I am that dedicated to this game. Or just crazy. Probably both.

Perfume of the Day: London by Burberry
White floral, citrus. Notes include: Jasmine, honeysuckle, mandarin orange, rose, tiare flower, peony, and musk.
I own: 100ml bottle, and a very small amount left in my 50ml bottle.

This is one of my favorite perfumes of all time, and as most people with a favorite perfume can tell you, the ones you love the most are often the hardest to describe. I think this is because the perfume tends to be emotionally evocative as well as an olfactory pleasure. For me, this smell is one of the ultimates in comfort. It's soft, warm, and rich, but in the way that white florals are as opposed to gourmands - sweet, but also fresh and clean. The initial spray opens with the mandarin orange notes and the citrus combined with the delicate but enveloping blanket of an entire array of white florals make it instantly both invigorating yet calming. I find this scent to be one of the most classy modern scents available. I've owned a number of Burberry scents throughout my life - one of the first "real" perfumes ever given to me as a gift was Burberry's Weekend - and I've found that nearly all of them are great. They don't all suit me, of course - that would be asking a lot, to have an entire house of perfumery that all happens to work well on my skin, especially considering how varied their scents are. But this particular scent is one that upon first sniff I went, oh, that's far too sophisticated for me...and then couldn't get it out of my mind. After actually wearing it instead of just smelling it from the bottle (seriously, never just smell from the bottle, always test on yourself), I fell in love, and have loved it ever since. It's a truly beautiful scent, and one that I never want to be without!
