Weekly diary

Perfumes i wore this week: Untitled, Cabotine, Kenzo Amour, La Pausa (dislike), Iris Poudre (too elegant), Zoologist Elephant plus testing some fig perfumes like Premier Figuier, Ninfeo Mio, Figue Blanche and Fico d´India. I am still undecided, maybe i just stick with a few decants and don’t buy a FB. Sunday scent was Pour la Belle by Schlossparfümerie Stuttgart, a very classic and mossy chypre.


On my plate: Lamb and potatoes, oxtail stew with Semmelknödel, smothered fennel with gorgonzola and salsicchia, sausage salad, quark dumplings with rhubarb compote and tete de beau (veals head) with sauce gribiche and potatoes, raw broccoli salad with cheddar, peanuts and barberries. I made some “Seelen”, a typical Swabian bread roll for breakfast, soo good!

Creative: i did a lot for sewing preparation on saturday and cut two dresses, one nightshirt and a muslin for a denim skirt. I finished the nightshirt and also finished my mashup Concord/Plantain T-shirt from a special fabric with little sushi rolls.

I wore a lot of remade clothes this week, because i try to participate in “memademay”, where sewists all over the world are wearing their own creations this month. Its also inspiring to look at all the photos at instagram.

  1. That’s fantastic, that you’re making your own clothes. Cute patterns!
    Which of the 4 fig perfumes did you like best, even if none were full-bottle worthy for you? I found Premier Figuier a bit too sweet, and I really like Ninfeo Mio (I bought a full bottle after smelling it for the first time in an Annick Goutal store in New York City, before I knew that one shouldn’t buy perfumes without having spent at least a whole day with them, but I am glad I did in this case. It was their last bottle, an unopened tester, still in the old bottle design). I haven’t tried the other two.


  2. I’m glad I don’t understand at least one third of the words related to your cooking because even what I do understand makes me hungry and envious 🙂

    The t-shirt looks cute. I was never good at sewing, so I’m easily impressed in general. But in particular: did you actually make that round neckline manually?!

    I recently discovered that my Premier Figuer bottle got slightly off. Too bad, since it was one of my favorite fig perfumes.
