Welcome to another week! What's your fragrance today?
And if you're participating in the signature scent challenge, how's it going?
I've learned that I'd really rather not wear Robert Piguet Fracas every day. It's gorgeous, but some days, it's frankly too gorgeous, and too formal. There were times over the weekend, especially as I was doing chores around the house, when it irked me and I wished I was wearing something else. Then again, I did notice new things. The sandalwood in the dry down is more prominent than I'd remembered (it helps that I'm wearing vintage), and I often forget (although I think someone brought it up in the comments here recently) that the orange blossom is so prominent, and how noticeable some of the other floral notes (especially the hyacinth and narcissus) are in the early stages. So this was fun, but either I'm no longer interested in wearing one fragrance every day, or Fracas just isn't the right choice.
Reminder: this Friday, 12 September, wear something green.
And for those of you who like to plan ahead, see Scent of the day ~ Friday community projects 2014, where I'll try to always have the next six or seven weeks mapped out in advance.
