Acqua di Hydrangea

Hello there! Hopefully you're ready for a fresh start of the new year and week after well enjoyed days with family and friends. Always a little weird that those are gone so soon right?

Since I missed blogging during the holiday season I thought I'd show you one of the gifts I received. At the beginning of December during a typical Dutch festive tradition named 'Sinterklaas', I was spoiled with Armani's delicious, fresh smelling perfume Acqua di Gioia and I've been wearing it very often since. I think I can say I started a little personal tradition with new perfumes, because I always capture the beautiful bottles, play with the light that illuminates the glass. This time together with beautiful pink and green colored hydrangeas fitting the character of the scent. Tell me, do you inaugurate new perfumes in a special way?
