Just a quick post today, to give some sort of indication that I am still alive in bloggers' world, albeit barely.
I'm still wearing and enjoying perfume on a daily basis, mostly, but just struggling to find time and a bit of motivation to write about it.
Today I wore Andy Tauer's Orange Star for the first time in ages. It's a timely reminder of what a good and original perfumer Andy is. Orange Star is quite a simple perfume in many ways, but it has that knack of making me feel happy and uplifted. It's a genuine mood enhancer, and God knows we all need some of that. It has stellar longevity too - it lasts all day and then some. Some serious fixatives in that base.
As some other bloggers have pointed out, Andy's direction seems to be lighter and more floral these days, but I do love some of his older creations.
