an evening in hamburg

yesterday i went to hamburg to sniff perfumes, to look out for those frames in grey and to meet with a fellow blogger, ulrike, who writes Dotti's Dots. we had a great time at the café paris, drinking beer and talking about one thing and another and another and everything, basically. sadly enough (for me, as it is happy for her) she is moving away soon, but as the world is small and the internet makes it even smaller i guess we'll meet again. i mean, she has been to a restaurant in the little village where my godmother comes from, and that's a place nobody else i've ever met knows - apart from those living in the region, that is...

about the frames. well. i had a list of seven different opticians carrying chanel-frames. two of those where in a street i didn't find, two didn't exist any more and the other three didn't have that model. so. in the end, i found frames in what seemed to me the same greyish tone, tried them and asked the optician to take a picture of me:

























the lighting there was weird, i think they looked better in real life than here, but i am quite convinced that the colour is not as nice as the dark red one.

i sniffed some perfumes and had some on my wrists as well. i got a sample of un jardin sur le nil by hermès, and sniffed the classic acqua di parma eau de cologne. not my thing at all. then i tried acqua di parma's fico di amalfi, which reminded me a lot of hermès' un jardin en méditerranée and which was really nice, and i also tried a classic dior fragrance, diorissimo, which is lily of the valley through and through. very much spring, i'd say, nothing for winter. but nice. i'll go on searching and trying and sniffing and smelling, it's a lot of fun to explore the world of fragrances...

Ich finde dunkelrot besser :).

Das war ein schöner Abend, dankeschön. Und ganz klar sehen wir uns noch mal.

Brille: unerwarteterweise finde ich Grau gar nicht doof. Das ist schön neutral und man kann Make-up technisch ein bisschen mehr zur Sache gehen. Ich bin gespannt.

Jag håller med! Chanelbågarna i mörkrött var snyggare! Jag tyckte den gråa nyansen var lite för ljus, kanske mörkare hade varit bättre? Hur som helst, mörkrött var snyggare!

fröken lila said...

@ nadine: hach, udn jetzt habe cih festgestellt dass es das gestell auch noch in lila gibt. was die sache ja nicht unbedingt einfacher macht.

@ dotti: das war der grund weshalb ich grau unbedingt probieren wollte. roter lippenstift und rote brille kann ganz schön heftig werden. aber, wie gesagt, es gibt das gestell wohl noch in dunkellila. hach, immer diese entscheidungen!!

@ lillgull: jag gillar de röda bättre än de gráa. men nu ság jag att de fanns i mörklila ocksá. gissa vem som har svárt att bestämma sig nu =)

Kitten said...

Oj, mörklila kunde vara snyggt...Dock gillade jag de röda på dig också, de grå var nog lite för ljusa. Lycka till med valet!

SOS! said...

I like the specs, but I can imagine how the red ones would look bolder. I have brown Chanel one, and I loooove em.
