I was going to review Andy Tauer's Noontide Petals today but right now, I can't. I think it needs more time on skin before I can review it.
But after spending the better part of an hour trying to pick out a perfume yesterday, something came across my mind. If I could redo my perfume journey, what would I redo? First, I wouldn't have changed my first perfume nor the size of Cuir de Russie (Chanel) that had me fall down the rabbit hole. Instead of getting Chanel's Gardenia, I would have gotten no. 22 and maybe have skipped Chanel Sycomore entirely. Also, I would have gotten into decants much sooner than I did, not wait a couple years and might have saved me some money. And some space.
At this point, trying to finish a bottle of anything is tough when you have a large collection of perfume.I'm mainly trying to finish off one of my bottles of no. 5 because I really don't need that many back up bottles of it. I really don't. With no. 5, I love it but it's not the head over heals love that I was hoping for. My back up bottles of no. 5 was partially fear of reformulation and the EDP version on the website had said limited edition.
