Yesterday the builders finally came and finished half the closet, and I’m so excited I just have to show you some pictures before I head out for dinner! The shelves with shoes and bags are now connected to the wardrobe and they’re positioned in a an angle which works so well for the room! I couldn’t be happier!! They will come back again tomorrow and add the final shelves between the units on the long wall and add mirrors to the wall behind me when taking the photo below.
I wish you could be here to really see it, and smell it! Yes, I said smell. I got a wonderful gift on the door some time ago with two bottles of Parfum de Maison by Ladurée Paris. The bottles come with a traditional little squeezing bulb with a tazzle in the end – utter Paris glamour!
The green bottle I got, named Délice, smells like a divine dream of sweet heaven. I can’t put my finger on what it is, but is smells sooo good!! Ladurée knows exactly how to describe it:
Délice » is a marshmallow perfume, a nostalgic fragrance, dedicated to childhood in the prime of youth. The recollection of the lady at the sweets’ shop with marshmallows of all colours displayed in big jars made of glass, from where sweet and soft fragrances emanated. “Délice de Ladurée” is a touching and light perfume, both indefinable and irresistible. A scent of unforgettable childhood.
I also got a white bottle named Amandine which I instantly knew would be perfect for the kitchen! It smells of the sweet almond paste (Norwegian: mandelmasse) used in the Swedish pastry “semla” which is a big favourite of mine! Ladurée describes it like this:
A home fragrance with sweet notes of almond. “Amandine” is a marriage of round and sweet notes with green notes, mixing both country smells and sweet pastry aromas. An exquisite perfume for the house.
The perfumes was sent to me by a Norwegian online store which you can find here. I have no idea where you can find it if you don’t live in Norway other than in Ladurée shops. Worth the hunt though!! The boxes are a jewellery itself, it looks absolutely stunning and super chic on the shelf ♥
Now I really need to put the computer away as I have an incredibly impatient boyfriend lying on the floor with his jacket and shoes on ready to hit the restaurant, I just wanted to pop by and say hi and show you the progress on the closet. We’re trying one of the sister restaurants of Amaya tonight, the one we went to yesterday. I can’t wait!! Hope you’re having a lovely Sunday!! xx
