March 19th

3.5 years today guys! Yay me! (You can read up on my Tumblr if you're curious about what I'm referring to.) It was a good day though, at Caribou I found out it was buy one get one free drinks, and I also had some yummy Subway to celebrate. I also finally caved and bought a new perfume, which hopefully I'll like! It'll be here on Saturday most likely, and I'm super excited! It's TokyoMilk's "Tomorrow" which is an aquatic scent, but aquatic in the salty, beachy way. Hopefully it'll be a good addition to my collection! It only comes in a rollerball so it wasn't expensive, so that was a treat too!

I'm all caught up on FaceOff (I'm really liking this season!) and  think I'm going to give this season of The Amazing Race a try. I don't like a gimmicky premise of this season at all and I think it's extremely tacky and so much like all the reality shows that I dislike so much, but we'll see. I do love TAR a lot, so maybe it'll be okay.

Perfume of the Day: Lolita Lempicka by Lolita Lempicka
Notes include licorice, star anise, cherry, ivy, praline, violet, vanilla, tonka bean, and musk.

This is a very special scent to me. It was my first successful blind buy, and in my recent journey into collecting perfumes, my first love. I don't ever want to be without this beauty. (It's actually been reformulated recently and I have yet to try the newer version, but hopefully it smells the same or I will be extremely heartbroken.) Anyway! Firstly, about the scent itself. It's definitely a warm, dry scent. This perfume made me fall in love with the scent of licorice, and I've never smelled another perfume like it. It's very sensual, but also ethereal. The Lolita Lempicka aesthetic is very rooted in fairytales, and I feel like this fits right in. It's a nighttime forest, pixies abound, with tangled trees and cloudy skies. It has a sense of wonder and magic about it. The dry licorice and star anise is set off my subtle cherry notes and the greenery of ivy, and there is a delicate but consistent sweetness from the vanilla. It's something like spicy or peppery, but powdery and soft at the same time. Everyone always says it's hard to describe your favorite scents - it's true. With scents about which I have a neutral or negative opinion, I can pick out notes, but I don't get a story or a feeling from them. Lolita Lempicka turned my world upside down. It made me fall in love with fragrance like I never have before, and it holds a very special place in my heart. I've brought this perfume on both of my vacations to the UK and Ireland, and it reminds me of those places. (There are two others that remind me of those places, but I have yet to review them on here!) This is my go-to favorite scent. My signature, if you will. While there are others I love to wear, this one will always be unique. If you have a chance to test this, I would highly recommend it. There are also many, many other scents from this house, many of which I really enjoy. This particular scent also happens to be the one on which I receive the most compliments, so I'm glad others enjoy it on me as much as I enjoy it on myself! It really is a treasure of a scent.
