Next week...

… will be business as usual. Planning the posts for the Christmas week and trying to come up with something thematic, I realized that I don’t have that many olfactory Christmas associations. That is probably mainly due to the fact that I was born and raised in Soviet Union where Christmas was not celebrated. New Year was, and I believe it still remains the most favorite holiday in Russia and Former Soviet Union, with fur-tree, decorations, Grandfather Frost (Santa Claus), presents, huge holiday feast…

So, next week’s reviews will not be particularly Christmassy, but I will try to come up with something more festive to celebrate the New Year.

I hope you have gotten your little package I sent you! I will be looking forward to your posts and as a woman raised by a Jewish mother who loved to decorate for all holidays (Christmas and Easter included) and an atheist Irish father, I will be delighted by your posts whether or not they are holiday appropriate.

Actually, now that I think of it, it seems like you could do something around Hannukah as it is the festival of lights, too, if you were stretched for holiday inspired scents.

What would be a good scent to review on Hannukah? :-)

Let's see, I would think something to commemorate the miracle of the oil lasting for eight nights. Hmmm, how about a perfume of fire? Antica Farmacista Fuoco? Maybe some perfume that is very oily. You could review perfume extraits for eight nights, or oil format scents. I like the idea that it was perfume oil that miraculously lasted rather than oil for light, as fragrance is perhaps more precious than good lighting. Heehee.

Must find a sample of Fuoco! I am not a fan of oils, at all, but I love the idea of fiery perfume. Off to google...
