The Scent dilemma

With previous post I’ve promised to give more details about my new perfume. But to be honest it wasn’t initial idea. I guess it was a small preview and closer look to my favorite perfumes and collection I have. Yes, I should confess – I’m obsessed with scents…and should admit it’s very expensive madness. Please don’t get me wrong – it’s not about buying a new bottle and adding it to the shelf in order to beat the quantity. No, it’s all about explorations and discoveries, it’s about rare scents and their history, it’s about chemistry & power, magical alchemy you are trapped in. Yes, it takes time to find good ones, but every discovery worths it! So yes, my collection is not so big, but has individual value. You can’t find my favorite scents at Sephora or duty-free shop (let’s exlude classic scents!), but a specific boutique would be a perfect place the treasures are hidden in.

And now let’s come back to my new perfume. How to describe them? As my favorite Lithuanian writer/ Art historian Dr / journalist K.Sabaliauskaitė has emphasized – “if you want to give a peace of Vilnius or to find a scent inspired by this city – J.Statkevicius (Josef Statkusperfume is exactly one you are looking for. Scent of frankincense at the Catholic or the Orthodox church, modern and vintage, complicated and unmistakable plain, full of contradictions, as well as Vilnius is”. Maybe it will be more familiar and close to the skin for those who have grown in this city with all it’s history, surrounded by all specific places, old architecture, lost of churchs and scents. Even if you aren’t, be brave, take a chance and dicover them in your unique way! So do I need to say more?!
