My 50 Favorites 2015



I've  always been resistant to making lists due to my difficulty of being a synthetic person. For me, details are important and I hate to limit myself to a few options. But I decided to try to do a list my way. I haven't necessarily picked the best perfumes that have gone through the blog in 2015, but all those who when i look for the name of all the options I remembered with nostalgia of having evaluate. Avoinding making this post too long and exhausting, I will describe each scent with a sentence only. The choices are in alphabetical order.

This year for me was important, since I came back to write in the blog and the reception was very good. I thank all of you who during this year read and commented here. Although I always first write to me I know how important my readers are. Good content with no one to read on the other side is a dead content.

And I wish all of us a very fragrant 2016. That among the many mediocre releases to come we can find good aromas and perfumes well made and satisfying to us.
