For those who know me, I will be taking a very long break from indiscriminate perfume buying. My last few purchases all ended up with the same fate, one spray and off it shelf it goes. I bought them because they were discontinued, hard to find and on good discounts, I liked them but I don’t necessarily love to wear them.

However, I am enamoured with Parfum d’Empire Le Cri de la Lumière lately, from a small (and often dangerous) sample..
