Current Obsession: Jour d'Hermes

So after reading my book (see previous post) I've become obsessed with luxury goods and fashion in the sense that I am now constantly checking the quality of the items I'm using, checking the "made in" tag, and constantly looking for new and independent labels that make high quality goods.

What I also took away from the book was a desire to smell Hermès perfumes. Because they still have a nose who knows a great deal about perfume. And because they still use very fine packaging and aren't trying to constantly cut costs. And also because it's a company that intrigues me as I think they still desire true luxury in a world of homogenized fashion and goods.

I went and smelled one and fell in love. Well I did with all of them, but especially this one.

This perfume is so clean and so perfect for every day as well as nice events. I can't describe it. It's clean in the sense that you can tell there aren't too many scents in it, but it's not necessarily a "clean" smell. It just smells very high quality. It isn't powdery or cloying. It's very much luxurious and I very much love it!
You can buy it at Sephora, Nordstroms, and of course at Hermès. You can also buy a re-filler and reuse the bottle, which is awesome.
