April Aromatics 🌹

 

❦ A fragrance is a veritable story, told and explained in scent, in notes, in impressions. It’s a score based on the emotions of each instant, a captivating music of the senses. ❦

Mesmerizing roses in my veranda.

This time I have chosen special perfume line ~ April Aromatics. It is a natural perfume line, created by Tanja Bochnig, artisan, natural perfumer. Perfume for me is more than an extract it is a presence in abstraction. A perfume, for me, is a mystique. The line represents a range of natural perfumes and follows a holistic approach. Their ingredients are from pure and natural origin whenever possible. Perfumes are unique and hand blended with love and care. They are committed to use the highest quality of natural essences available from nature.

April Aromatics does not use animal derived ingredients, such as civet or ambergris, with the exception of beeswax extract in one of pour perfumes. The valuable perfumes are unique with regard to their formulation. Every scent is infused with individually chosen essences of semi-precious stones, which afford energy and harmony to the wearer. Each perfume is a journey in itself. The energy and intention that go into the creation are most important for them to complete a beautiful bouquet.

The perfumes are a mixture of botanical essences based in either organic jojoba oil for the roll on perfumes or organic grape spirit for our Eau de Parfums. As a natural emulsifier, which is a product that binds water and oil, used in their room and body mists, they use an all natural coconut derived substance.

One of my favorites is Calling all Angels, it is rather dark and complex angelic scent, with a sweet incense/ honey-like note, implementing the elements of Earth, Ether and Air. It envelops you in a luscious cloud of ambered incense, grounded by a resinous warm beeswax depth, and balanced by soft woods and tonka bean. This scent is infused with clear crystal and Herkimer diamond. Bottled on a Full Moon. Each bottle contains 24 karat gold flakes.

Calling All Angels was a winner in the Artisan category at the 2013 Art and Olfaction Awards.

❦ Let us celebrate the occasion with wine and sweet words. ❦

Hello, beautiful people! Autumn is here and also harvest time. I spent a beautiful time in nature, surrounded by amazing vineyard up in the hills. I adore grapes and all other autumn sweet delights. Picking your own grapes is the best feeling ever. It is good for my soul and I am connected with nature on all levels, but the main reason we hand pick is to preserve the integrity of the fruit, which can lead to better wine. You can check it yourself on photos below. Enjoy!

Natura Eco Camp ~ Kranjska Gora. 🐞 🐾 🌿 🍀 🍄

❦ The clearest way into the Universe is through a forest wilderness. ❦

John Muir

Hello, beautiful people. This summer I also visited amazing Natura Eco Camp in Kranjska Gora. I was sleeping in an amazing tree tear drop tent. But there is many other accommodations too. You can rent a Luxury safari tent, their small tent or you can bring your own. It is just close enough to deep forests to arouse your primal instincts and just far enough from the city to still feel like you’re at home. If you’re a self-sufficient camper, freely bring your own stuff. If you would like to stay in a safari tent, everything will be taken care of – just bring your luggage. Everything else will be provided for in the camp. There’s plenty to do: besides camping, hiking, and visiting Kranjska Gora, you can also arrange a group hike during which we will pick herbs and get to know the local wildlife. Camp welcomes you from June 1st to October 1st. Of course the visit depends of the weather conditions.

The camp is app. 500 meters away from Kranjska Gora, 50 minute drive from Ljubljana, and app. 40 minute drive from Jože Pučnik airport.
It was perfect place to stay at night beneath the stars. Enjoy!

Hello, beautiful people. Those days I was traveling around amazing Rogaška Slatina. The wells of Rogaška Slatina were known already in the antique. A healing thermo mineral water with a high content of magnesium and other minerals today represents the key element of the offer. In the city with exceptional tradition, they put  efforts to assure prestigious comfort, quality programmes and rich wellness offer that provide guests with wellbeing, complete relaxation and healthy life. Rogaška Slatina is famous for its beautiful wellness park, designed in the first half of the 19. Century. This is it is especially nice to take a walk on the wellness promenade through the well arranged park. Hotels, Grand Hotel Rogaška, Styria, Strossmayer and Hotel Slovenija, which boast with Four Star Status, are all located in the wellness park. The most prestigious among them is the Grand Hotel Rogaška with selected period furniture and comfort of imperial luxury.

I visited prestigious Grand Hotel Rogaška. And they opened only for me the most beautiful Crystal hall. You can see all luxury interior on my photos bellow. I hope you will enjoy! ❀ ❁ ❃ ✾

ℬeautiful small town ~ Štanjel ⛲

 

❦ Playing along in the yard, the blue sky sparkles against the earthly green, creating such harmony! A pond, nearby. Untroubled waters mirrors the ether’s dreams. A grand echo of my Divine Heart! I am One. ❦

Arnaud Saint-Paul

 

Hi, all the beautiful people around the world. My next trip was visiting, charming old town. Stanjel – the jewel of the Karst region. The Romans turned the top of the hill into an ancient fort, in the Middle Ages the village expanded over the hill, and later on the settlement was enclosed by defence walls to protect it against Turks invasions. However, the most dominant features of the village are the Castle and the Church of Saint Daniel, which make Stanjel so remarkable. While walking through the narrow streets, the houses built in stone are telling you the story of stonemasons, who portrayed their experience of the Karst through stone. The streets end up in small squares, which were once popular meeting places for the youth and elderly.

While walking through the streets, you are also invited to visit  a very interesting passage from the stone village to the green surroundings is represented by Ferrari’s Garden, a unique masterpiece of the architect Max Fabiani. Enjoy! 🍃🌷 🍃

❦ It’s a sort of bloom on a woman. If you have it, you don’t need to have anything else; and if you don’t have it, it doesn’t much matter what else you have. ❦

Hi, sweeties! This morning I took this photo. I love taking pictures. This lovely flower is from our garden. And I can`t wait to put on my favourite earrings too. I adore coffee, but my body can`t stand a lot of caffeine. That`s why in the morning I prepare Orzo coffee, Organic ground roasted Barley. Sometimes I drink also normal black coffee, but with a loooot of milk. ☕ I hope you`ll enjoy the photo. Blessings on the way! 🌺
