Winter: one more time…

I just took this picture and this is certainly not what we’ve all been hoping for, but I guess it will just make the very soon coming spring feel even better. We’ve made it through the most of it, why should we let this last bits of winter ruin our mood?

Spring in Berlin

I love how Berlin changes as soon as the sun is out. As if a heavy weight was finally taken off the city, people pour out on the streets to sit outside of cafés, turning their face into the sun to enjoy every minute of it. Who knows how long the golden one will stay with us, I’m sure the winter beast will make a final return sooner or later, until then: breathe, Berlin, breathe!

The scent of Berlin

Shortly after returning to the dreadful grey of February-Berlin, I received a package from Serge Lutens containing a perfume called La Fille de Berlin – A deep red liquid in the very classic, minimal and elegant Serge Lutens flacon. The french perfumer dared to create a scent dedicated to this complicated yet elating city, centering on a strong rose note with hints of pepper, and states he was inspired by the strength and brave resilience of women during the various struggles Berlin suffered in its younger history. So lucky for me, no smell of dusty vintage cotton or smoky Berghain top notes, but such elegance and pride – La Fille de Berlin evokes a glorious past and demands you to dress up, hold your head up high and strut the city gracefully. A perfect companion to the dress I found at Nightboutique, now I just need an occasion.
