Organization time.... . I'm so tired of having perfume on every flat surface of my house. Something that I probably bought on a whim has been evaporating in my bedroom for weeks, creating a sickly sweet miasma that annoys me every time I walk in there. But with hundreds of bottles, who could tell what it is? . I told a friend recently, "I wish I had an empty cabinet, and someone to tell me that I can only keep what fits inside and I have 10 minutes to fill it up." Well, my husband bought me a cabinet and graciously agreed to let me put it in another part of the house, and I decided to only keep what will fit inside. No more perfume piled everywhere, and no more perfume bottles in the bedroom. (He's already pointed out that there's room for one more cabinet, but I'm going to try really hard to stick to this). . It's going to take me longer than 10 minutes to fill it up. (It might take 10 days, or 10 weeks even). But there was no question what I was putting in first. . So here are my bottles from @chris.rusak.perfume, first in the cabinet. They look so pretty that I took a photo. They won't stay in this exact arrangement, because space *is* limited. But it made me happy to see them all lined up in one place. . The 50mLs from right to left are Io, 33, Bluer Skies (Whenever You're Around), Timbre EdT, Quasi una absurdia, Timbre EdP, Beast Mode, and After Every Ounce of Joy (Leaves My Body). . The two 30mL bottles on the ends are Io and Beast Mode. I've bought 30mL bottles of most of the scents because I think they're so cute, and they're great for throwing in my purse and for travel. But then, who's been traveling??? So the fates squashed all my travel plans and most of the 30mL bottles are still wrapped up in their boxes. . Also in the back you can see some of my backup bottles still in their delightful hand-wrapped packaging. A lot of them still had pieces of shredded paper "snow" stuck in the folds. I left it there. ❤️ . . . #perfumecollection #perfumecollector #nicheperfume #indieperfume #uniqueperfume #artisanperfume #indiemakeupandmore #nichefragrance #perfumelovers #perfumebottle #perfumery #perfumedisplay #chrisrusak #chrisrusakperfume #enchantéfragrance

💋 // #sotd After Every Ounce of Joy (Leaves My Body) Chris Rusak ・ // You’ll read far better accounts than my meandrous thoughts I’ve jotted for this post, but here we go! ・ // Upon first smelling AEOOJ when it hits the skin, these words come to mind—biting, intrusive, blusterous. It’s sour, melted rubber and sooty—smelling of decay and ruination. I grapple with wanting to wear something that feels so mournful and despondent, especially in such difficult times, but as I continue on with AEOOJ, I’m reminded of one of many favorite songs by the Talking Heads—(Nothing But) Flowers. Not knowing any of the fragrance notes, I’m imagining abandoned structures of concrete and wood except instead of smoldering devastation, I now smell growth—life forcing its way out of suppression, piercing through the layers of seeped in chemicals and past the char. Saplings scraping and pushing their way forth, ignoring any and all obstructions. An impulsion of earth gradually widening rifts before covering everything in its path. A semblance of former times remains as a reminder to those who remember, but adaptation and restoration have taken-place. It’s at this stage of wearing AEOOJ that I realize the brilliance of what Chris has created with this fragrance whether it was his intention or not because to me, it speaks to the astounding obstacles we have and will continue to encounter where everything may feel insurmountable. However, there will be recovery—renewal. It may take some getting used to, but we will endure. We will adapt. We will begin again. ・ // Perfumer: Chris Rusak @chris.rusak.perfume

33 chosen as one of The Perfume Society Bloggers' Scents of Summer

The Perfume Society member and epic Instagram perfume nerd Katie Cooke, whose account Scentosaurs destroys the mold in fragrance reviews, picks 33 alongside Papillon Perfumery, Serge Lutens, Dior, and Guerlain for her top bottles this season. Honored to be place alongside such company!

Liam Sardea of Olfactics has reviewed Quasi una absurdia, Io, and 33!

"Consider this gem. In the first instance, [Quasi una absurdia] could be construed as a well-executed homage-qua-synthesis of two greats: the plush blue quiet of Guerlain’s L’Heure Bleue, and the rich intensity of Bal a Versailles. It’s as if Bal came along and told L’Heure Bleue to put its chin up, for QUA never drags along with quite a melancholic weight, nor does it lose its classical attitude. But it would be unfair to describe QUA as strictly an homage, as this feature moves along quite quickly. Rather, QUA is a fragrance made of a classical syrup, where notes of rose, jasmine, orange blossom, and civet speak a whole history of classical perfumery, enlivened with an equally classic amalgam of ylang ylang, clove, benzoin, and tonka bean." (November 20, 2018)

Victoria Jent of EauMG also reviews the same three perfumes and shares similar delight with QUA:

"Quasi una absurdia smells like funeral lilies, Certs mints and Murphy oil soap. My mind immediately went to a funeral parlor as morbid as it sounds. As it wears, it’s a really pollen-heavy floral. With the notes, you’d expect a white floral, but this is a “yellow floral”. It’s lilies and carnation. Vermillion-hued pollen scattered on the floor. As the fragrance dries down, it’s like night-blooming jasmine making its way through an open window. These florals eventually fade into musk and church incense. It’s gorgeous." (September 21, 2018)
