At the end of December I might well write up a "Best perfumes I tried this year" list instead of the usual "Best movies I saw this year" list. For one thing, we've mostly watched comedy TV shows on DVD lately and not seen that many films. For another, I have sampled a lot of scents, thanks almost entirely to knows perfume opening in my 'hood back in spring. And, as such, I now have a bunch of samples around that I might possibly be persuaded to part with.
Today I have selected two, and our lucky winner will get them both:
Prima Ballerina by Strange Invisible Perfumes. Bright notes of Greek sage and organic lime animate a satiny bouquet of Egyptian and Turkish roses. Poised on an enchanting stage of botanical musk, this lithe composition executes a perfect tour jeté with the exhilarating grace of a true classic. (Description from the Strange Invisible website.)
Thé Pour Un Été by L'Artisan Parfumeur. An invitation to a far-away land, a moment of tranquility in an exotic oasis, the fragrance is as refreshing as a glass of iced green tea infused with jasmine and mint. Delicate and versatile, this is a scent for all seasons, a tender reminder of the happy days of summer. Notes: lemon, bergamot, mint, jasmine, green tea. (Description from L'Artisan's site.)
Both come in little 1ml vials, about half full after my sampling them.
