Hump Day and ? Emoji Day and ?? Day. What fragrance are you wearing?
No credit, but smelling great in John Varvatos Artisan.
Reminder: on 7/19, wear a fragrance by Jo Loves, Jack Perfumes, Jardins D’Écrivains, Jul et Mad or Juliette Has A Gun, if you have one. Partial credit for any other small-ish brand that starts with the letter J.
And for those of you who like to plan ahead, see Scent of the day ~ Friday community projects 2019, where I'll try to always have the next five or six weeks mapped out in advance.
Note: top image shows musician Gary Clark Jr and family for John Varvatos Spring 2019.
Another drizzly morning – still love drizzle, but am wishing a wee bit for some sun – and wearing Tom Ford Violet Blonde.
You smell wonderful! Drained my decant of that one, I should get another.
Are there still decanting services that have it? I thought I snagged the last bottle on earth several years ago.
Only finding it on ebay now that I’m looking, at more than I’m wanting to spend on it
I’m wearing Caligna. I always forget how much fig there is in this one, and I dislike fig. So far the only fig-forward scent that I like is Philosykos.
Partial credit – I finished my sample of Jovoy Remember Me.
Today I bought two Pacifica scents from a sale – Tahitian Gardenia 28 ml and Waikiki Pikake 10 ml (rollerball). I hope Donatella will understand. The sale is at a local eshop which normally sells Pacifica products at about twice of their US price, but now they have finally reduced the prices to $21.5 and $9.5 respectively. Probably a clearance sale, so I am glad I snatched them.
Congrats on your purchases!
Thanks! I wanted that spray bottle of TG for a long time.
Nice finds! I’m interested in Waikiki Pikake and would like to hear what you think of it.
It’s a blind buy, but once I get it and try it, I’ll write a mini review.
31RC, inspired by someone who wore it on here recently.
Smells so good in the hot hot weather!
You smell amazing. For me, however, 31 RC is a cold weather scent – I find it overpowering when it’s hot.
I just dabbed it..when it wears off I will spray Nuxe fragrant water..its nice for this heat and refreshing
Ah, dabbing should make it more manageable, yes.
When I met my husband he wore John Varvatos Vintage, a fruity tobacco leather. He still has a bottle — I just wandered over to his dresser to smell it. But then I ended up in Eau de Baux.
My hubs has a bottle of Eau de Baux. I love it.
Maria Candida Gentile Hanbury – Linden and other summer flowers, I also get something that seems like licorice or anise to my nose, but must be the bitter orange note. Pretty, pretty, pretty! These summer scents are all so pleasing in the heat.
Lovely! I almost wore Hanbury today.
Just bought some linden essential oil. It’s so beautiful!
ooooh, linden essential oil sounds like heaven. I didn’t know such a thing exists!
It’s made by Wyndmere. ?
SOTD is Caron Pour Un Homme, layered with a few drops of lavender essential oil.
Love the photo up top! I’ve been waiting for Gary Clark Jr. to play a show here.
That is such a beautiful scent
It’s a lovely scent, but I sometimes think that the lavender note should be stronger, so adding a bit of lavender oil probably makes it even better.
Agreed. I wish the lavender would stick around a little longer.
great idea to layer with lavender eo! Pour un Homme has my favorite lavender top note.
Kenzo Amour Florale. I forgot how pretty it is!
Oh, I loved that one! Did I used to own it, or just a sample? I can’t remember but it is a flashback to a very specific time in my life.
It is very lovely indeed. Light and very easy to wear. Unfortunately, it is discontinued. I am kind of hoarding the few mls I have left.
That Kenzo had a really pretty bottle too, as I recall.
It has a beautiful white bottle. When it comes to bottles, I am a Kenzo lover.
After finding a sealed vintage Givenchy III parfum at an estate sale, and looking at it longingly for a month while I was trying and failing to sell it on eBay, today I finally cracked and delisted it, peeled off the seal sticker, enjoyed the click of the bottle coming out of the stand, applied. Wish I could say I was bowled over, but the heat ate it up so quickly I can barely smell it anymore…
Oh no, that makes me sad! I love Givenchy III. I don’t have any now, but was looking for a vintage bottle awhile ago.
I hope you enjoy it anyways!
Sampling today, 1993 from Smell Bent. It’s supposed to be their take on Angel I guess, with the patchouli/cholocate combo, but the opening has a horrible dominant note of stale root beer. It has since calmed down but that note is too ugly for me!
Stale root beer sounds oddly appealing to me lol.
Me too. We are probably all sick.
Are you in the US? I’d be happy to pass this along haha
I am dorsey:) my email is kalliela11 at that hawtmail. Thanks for the offer!
I left the house without putting any fragrance on.
I can smell a bit of Paris – Deauville on my scarf.
I’ve grown to really love Deauville. Don’t need it, but want it!
I see Chanel has the smaller size bottles on their website now. Not that I’m suggesting anything….
Ormonde Jayne Champaca. Not a small J, but does have J in it.?
Got to FaceTime with my college daughter who has been away working at summer-camp since the beginning of the month. She had a night off and spent it at my parents house (who live about 20 minutes away from said camp, lucky ducks). She’s having a great time.? It’s funny to hear her talk about how tiny some of the campers are, lol. She may have forgotten that she was one of those tiny campers 9 years ago, but I haven’t. I have the pictures to prove it. I don’t know where the years have gone…
I went to summer camp as a tiny kid and loved it! I always adored my camp counselors, usually had a crush on at least one.
I don’t have any Jo Loves, but I do have JM Vanilla & Anise and I think it smells particularly good when it’s really hot outside (and it is where I live), so that is what I have on today.
I love that one, you smell lovely!
It is brutally hot and humid today?
Makes me worry for my outdoor colony cats ? but they’re about 8 years old and have made it through 7 summers and winters so far, so I’m reminding myself of that.
SOTD is CdG Lily which is sharp and green enough to cut through the soup.
There are some feral and stray cats a couple of blocks away from where I live. Sometimes, people leave cat food on the sidewalks so they have something to eat. It doesn’t happen everyday. I wonder how they survive without water in the brutal heat. I don’t see any water around where they can drink from. That has me very mortified, since neighbors are not so happy about people leaving even food for them.
Ferals like that don’t live very long, usually. Maybe a couple of years or so. Maybe leave a tupperware of water out somewhere discrete?
I’m lucky that this colony (which are all neutered) lives in a lot occupied by an auto body repair shop and they are super cooperative and have let me keep the winter shelters there and other supplies I have. Not everyone is cat friendly, though ?
Oh no, Elisa! This is really breaking my heart. One of the cats last night was looking very tired and they do not allowed anyone to get close to them. My neighborhood is very animal unfriendly. That goes for cats, birds, squirrels, even though there are many of them and it is a very green area. I will try to bring a container with water tonight and look for a place where it is not so very visible. I really hope it rains tonight. This is very sad.
Really? Birds and squirrels? They’re so inoffensive!
I’m sure the cats will appreciate the water!❤
The ferals that aren’t neutered don’t live as long as neutered colonies, mostly because they get into a lot of fights and the females end up pregnant too many times.
I’m also hoping it rains! One of the friendlier cats let me wet her down this evening ?
Someone dumped a cat in the woods near our house. My husband heard it crying late Sunday afternoon. We think it’s a juvenile Maine Coon cat. It’s so pretty with feet like saucers. Right now this poor kitty is living in our barn because my cat will attack it. At least it is safe, sheltered and fed. We turned on a fan but I am worried about it today because it’s stinking hot. We found a home for it and are supposed to drop it off tonight to a lovely lady who loves cats. I’ll feel better when this very sweet kitty is better situated. I understand your concern and hope the stray cats are not effected.
You have a good heart, Petunia, wonderful that you found a good home for this poor kitten.
It’s really sweet and gentle kitty. I would keep it if my cat wasn’t such an alpha.
ElisaP does the real volunteer work. This kitty just sort of dropped in our lap. Really, we just want it to go to a loving, safe home.
Oh, yay and so wonderful you gave it a temporary crash pad and found it a new home! You’re the best thing to happen to that kitty ??
it always makes me smile when people take time to make animal’s lives better.
Love Maine Coons. I follow a couple of them in Instagram. Glad you found a home.
Our little old lady feral loves the heat. She would lay for hours on our screened porch in CA when the temps were 100 or more.
Aw, Petunia, I hope that sweet Maine Coon has found his/her forever home now.
It was a success! They bonded pretty quickly and left with smiles on their faces. I just happy that he’ll have a good home and be loved.
Aww! That’s so great. I love this.
My good friend had a Maine Coon for many years. Such great personalities!
California Rêverie for another hot muggy day. ?
You smelled great today!
Thank you! Nothing like catching a whiff of CR to make gross weather tolerable. ?
I recently got a bottle of CR, and I just love it. It’s beautiful but undemanding, donut never feels wrong. You smell great!
So it, not donut! Ha!
Thank you! It’s one of my summer favs,
Good morning! I’m trying out HG Lustre this morning, and I’m…disappointed. It’s this great, smooth, gourmand, cool rose, kind of like Mohur, but with a solid under- and overtone of tamarind, kind of sour and sweet in a slightly nose-curling way. Blech. Maybe it’s just my nose today; I hope so.
Got a cortisone shot in my foot this morning for plantar fasciitis and oh holy mother of god that shot HURT. Like a LOT. I cannot remember another shot that hurt that badly (including the cortisone shots I got to my wrist some months ago). I guess foot muscles are a bit more dense than most others, huh? Anyway, working from home so I can minimize movement (not strictly required, but the doctor scared me with his talk of possible muscle tears). My kitten is “helping.”
I’m sure that kitten is being very helpful indeed.? Hope your foot feels better soon!
Thanks, NR! Oh yes, when she lies on my hands, she really makes typing better >.<
Oh god, I feel your pain. The only cortisone shot I ever got was in the foot, and the doc just about had to peel me off the ceiling – MAN, those are painful.
I know, right?? He even warned me it would hurt, and I was like, Yeah, sure, it’s a shot; of course it’ll hurt. But after this one, I asked if I could just sit there for a few minutes to recover. He was very nice about it.
Sorry you had to experience this, too, but it’s kind of nice to see I wasn’t just being a big baby about it!
I have PF and have had that same shot.. I’ve learned to cope using other methods. I’ll never get that shot again! Hope you feek better soon!
Yeesh. I hope I never have to, but if I do, I’m very sad I know how bad it is!
Ugh…I know. I hope once is enough!
Oh, those shots are the worst, I’m so sorry you had to have that experience ? I had terrible plantar’s fasciitis and got the shots in the bottom of the heel. For years that pain was my 10 on the pain scale (as in actual pain that I’ve experienced, rather than the “worst pain you can imagine” which would be being mauled by a bear, but that’s never happened to me, thank God.) Enjoy your kitty’s help ?
Hahahaha. Being mauled by a bear probably does hurt much worse. But ouch, I hope the shot helped you!!
Have you tried low dose radiation therapy. It is a good therapy option jf you are not too young!
Oh noes, I’ve been looking for a tamarind perfume, but the last thing I need is to love another Hiram Green!
Hehehe. Fwiw, it’s not SUPPOSED to have tamarind in it, so my nose might just be funky. (I don’t want to smell like tamarind. It has too strong an association with food and warm kitchens for me.)
So sorry about the painful shot, hopefully it will make your foot a lot better.
Thank you, Aurora! Me too! Right now everything aches MORE, which I read can happen.
Ouch! I hope your foot starts to feel better soon. I once had a foot injection- it was ethanol or alcohol or something to dissolve a neuroma. It hurt like mad and didn’t work!
That’s terrifying! I’m so sorry it didn’t work
Omg that sounds horrible!? I hate shots, your plantar fasciitis must be pretty bad to warrant a shot.☹️ I hope it helps!!
Me too, thanks!
Oh, you have my sympathies, I’ve had PF and that same shot. Thought I was going to pass out. I had to go home and lie down for the rest of the day. Glad kitty is helping.
I got citronella instead of tamarind from Lustre.
It is such a relief that I’m not just being a baby about this!! It hurts like crazy, right?? My foot has been in considerable pain all day. They say 24 h of increased inflammation, so let’s hope that all the pain melts away overnight! Maybe I’ll take a nice bath in scented Epsom salt. Hmm.
thank goodness for kittens who “help” hope your foot is better soon!
Hehehe, she is the best little helper kitten. Thanks!
Eeeeeeeeek! I’m getting squicked out just thinking about getting that shot, let alone actually doing it! (shudder!)
Glad to hear that you have a kitty nurse to help out.
I hope you never have to get it! Also, I have this vision of my little kitten in a nurse’s outfit. She would look like a MUCH grumpier version of this: https://i.pinimg.com/236x/9f/9a/42/9f9a4232aff08c27cc47d326b07a6f5d–nurse-humour-hilarious-animals.jpg (That’s the kind of cat I have.)
Not kidding, I remember the pain of a cortisone shot in my heel better than I remember the pain of childbirth.
Hahaha! How awful! Makes sense, but still dreadful.
I am wearing Prada Infusion d’Iris today and drinking a cup of black tea.
Two wonderful things.
yes and yes! excellent scent and beverage choices.
EdM Bleue today, which is perfect for working outside in this muggy, tropical like weather.
yay for Eau des Mereilles!!!
Nutmeg & Ginger Cologne JM
i have unhungry days too, sometimes I have to remind myself to eat during the day, else I will find myself raiding the fridge like a hungry grizzly bear at bedtime!
Saltine crackers were about the only appealing option for most of the day today.
Since the mall across the street from my hotel had an O Boticario shop I went and tried Egeo on Me, the one made with the artificial intelligence apprentice. It is awful–a fruity, creamy, caramel mess that makes my eyes water. Time to wash it off.
oooh, sorry! that does sound awful. AI isn’t ready to take over from real noses yet
JM Myrrh & Tonka for me today. I usually prefer this in cool weather but it’s really hitting the spot this morning!
Sometimes the heavy hitters work really well in hot weather.
JM Myrrh & Tonka is on my FB wishlist. I used that sample up rather quickly.
I put on some Nemat Rose Otto after my shower last night and it still smells great today. I’ll add some Etro Messe di Minuit in a while, need the cooling of incense today. I currently have fresh produce hanging over my head needing to be used before it goes bad – need to make cucumber pickles and something with peaches – but cooking doesn’t sound appealing and for once, neither does eating ?
Caramelize them in a pan with a little butter and honey, and serve ‘em over ic cream!
Yum! I’m coming over!
Ooh, that sounds great!
That’s when I’ll make a vat of vegetable curry. Italian style marinated veggies are good too – blanch, marinate, refrigerate, and you’ve got a cold salad that lasts a week or two.
Not much of an appetite for food for me today, either. Cooking was totally out of the question.
I am wearing Lustre courtesy of hajusuuri. The opening reminds me of Tea Rose by PW. This one seems very different from the rest of the HG line.
Oh, good to know. Tea Rose instantly gives me an eyeball headache!
It does change as time goes by. I don’t dislike it but not sure if I need it either. I am very grateful for the chance to try it.
I get this too, and I don’t like Tea Rose. Fortunately that passes and the drydown is better.
I’m participating today in JHaG Mad Madame. It makes me happy that I still love it after having it for so long.
The store I want to work at is finally taking applications. I’m so nervous about filling it out, I want to throw up. Fingers crossed that I can make myself look good on virtual paper!
Remember, even though it’s disgustingly hot and humid, that it is not the polar vortex!?
You’ll knock it out of the park, lillyjo! I have every faith in you. ?
Fingers crossed for you Lillyjo.
You are awesome lillyjo!? You can do this!
Ok guys, I’m all submitted! Thanks for the support! Hopefully I will get an interview now, whew… I need a nap?
You can use me as a reference ? I hope you get it!!
You got this!????
Fingers crossed for you!! It is disgustingly hot and humid here too.
Good luck, Lillyjo. Praying for you!
And we are definitely facing a hell vortex! ??????
do it, lillyjo! bravery often comes AFTER doing something hard
You go, lillyjo! Congrats on applying to the store you really want to be at! ??
That’s great news! I hope you get it!
I’m also wearing Lustre, thanks to hajusuuri. This is a lovely, natural soft rose, very easy to wear. ?
Please send positive dental thoughts. I’m leaving in a bit for the first stage of repairing an infected root canal. I’m skeeered. ?
Oh dang… you will do fine! I always get the nitrous oxide for big procedures . Is that an option? Sending positive vibes your way!
It was an option, but it was $100! I passed and just did some deep breathing. Turned out okay.
Wow, that’s expensive! I think it’s 25 for me, or in that ballpark.
Seemed a bit extortionate to me, too.
Lustre really is very pretty.
Sending out positive thoughts to the gods of dental work. You will be fine. ?
Oof. Take all the drugs they offer. Hope it goes well!
Yeesh. Good luck!
Healing wishes sent your way! I’m cringing for you, though.
Sending positive thoughts your way! Dental work scares me too. Hope all goes well!
Wow, best of luck and hope it passes quickly for you.
Calming vibes for you!
Sending healing vibes. Hope you feel better soon.
hugs to you! dentists know better how to make things easy these days, so ask for what you need, tell them if anything bothers you!
You all are so sweet. Thanks for the good wishes! It went okay, with a minimum of discomfort. I’m home and drinking a protein shake with my doggo on my lap!
Hurray for your root canal going off smoothly! I’m sending continued good dental vibes your way for speedy and complete healing.
I got nitrous, a warm blanket, sunglasses and headphones last time…and they have heated seats.lol. Pamper me while you torture me lol
Oh my gosh, that’s fabulous! I want to go to your dentist! They left the X-ray ‘blanket’ on me, so that was nice.
SotD is Queen of the Night by Grandiflora.
You smell wonderful!
I’m wearing Keiko Mecheri Oliban today. I found my bottle in a recent attempt to clean out my perfume storage cabinets (and bins and drawers and shoe-boxes). This is pretty wonderful stuff, though it might prove a bit too heavy in our humid hot weather. To me this is a decidedly “purple’ scent. I can’t say why. And no I don’t have synaesthesia. Just some particular perfumes have a color. Anyway I am only half-way into my cleaning and sorting-out project. And this is only for bottles, samples are all in bins waiting to be sorted somehow. My system for bottles is not alphabetical but based on various other factors such as how often used, bottle height, bottle shape, niches of various types vs. department store perfumes (too many of those still left from my early days!) and so on. I also found a bottle of Odalisque (PdN) that I had completely forgotten about. Embarrassing. It was even in the box. I sprayed some on yesterday and thought “this is wonderful” but after awhile realised why I must have put it at the back of the cabinet, as it became very cloying. It will need to go up for the next swap meet I think. Hope people are all having a good day. I’ve got a final final deadline today on an article that’s just been killing me and once I send it out tonight I’m going to open a very nice bottle of wine (which I have yet to go out and buy).
Best of luck with the cleaning and the article!
I was doing this just a few weeks ago! Be careful not to accidentally put a bunch of random samples under “S” like I did. It feels good once it’s done!
Good luck with your deadline! I hope that you have said bottle of wine in hand now.
Enjoy the wine!
Hope the article is long since done!
Just spritzed Mmmmm. It has been only the beginning, but I’m liking it. Isn’t this the one a lot of people don’t care for? I’m getting an Amarige-lite feel.
Enjoy the eclipse too! Not familiar with Mmmmm.
I like Mmmmm! A friend sent me a decant and I think it’s very soothing.
Hmm(mm). I was going to wear this Friday as it’s my only relevant sample but the Amarige reference has me scared a little! I’ll have to dab carefully…
I get berries from Mmmm. Not my thing either.
Started the morning off in Terracotta. I’m now in Guerlain French Kiss. I smell like a rose-raspberry-vanilla macaron. That description doesn’t sound like something I’d want to smell like, our even eat for that matter, but I find this perfume utterly delightful.
Stopped at our neighborhood farmers market last night and found peaches! They’re ripening but will hopefully be worth eating soon. Also picked up the cutest little miniature eggplant – I could not resist. All different varieties, colors, and adorable. Plan to make a sandwich with them along with some beautiful yellow zucchini on some pillow-soft focaccia that we also picked up.
There’s also a pie lady that makes delicious goods. We’ve got 1 each mini sweet potato and pecan pie waiting in the wings as well.
I bet you smell great and the description of produce from the farmers market is very tempting.
Farmers markets are such a great summer experience, enjoyed reading about yours
They are! It’s my favorite summer activity. I also love talking to farmers
The folks at the markets always seem to be seriously nice people!
I beg to differ, if I may.
Pierre Hermé makes a macaron called Ispahan, which looks like it would be absolutely scrumptious:
you smell fantastic! I never thought I’d like Insolence, but something about the deliciousness of it always appeals to me. Guerlain knows what they’re doing (some of the time)
I dunno, a rose-raspberry-vanilla macaron sounds pretty good to me right now.
I’m with you on this one, Jalapeno – see images in the link I posted above.
Beautiful macaron in the link! I only meant that raspberries are never particularly appealing to me – in perfume or desserts. I love them as fruit, though, and have some in my fridge right now
In Maison de la Vanille Vanille Sauvage de Madagascar which radiates so much in summer, this is my favorite MdlV.
That’s my favourite of the line too.
That vanilla, lavender combo really is good and decent longevity too, on my skin.
Idylle Love Blossom on this hot, humid day. It really is quite gross out.
Love Idylle Love Blossom, you smell summery.
Hiding out under the AC in Tauerville Fruitchouli Flash.
I’m having a mildly terrific day – off contract for the summer, feel good, had a great workout this morning, took a shower, and I am now wafting Zoologist Dragonfly.
Well, where has this beauty been hiding? I think I must have passed on sampling it because of the heliotrope (which almost always smells like Play-doh to me, which I can’t abide). However, one of you wonderful people sent me a ton of Zoologist samples a while back, and I am finally getting around to this one (I tested many of the others practically before the tape on the package hit the floor). It’s just lovely.
Oh yay — I did not have a great day and am so pleased that somebody had a mildly terrific day
And then this afternoon I got a great haircut! Come join me on Slightly Wonderful Street tomorrow….
Margiela Untitled L’Eau today. Then i got my package with Niki de Saint Phalle Eau Defendu with my zodiac sign Leo. Such a wonderful chypre and a successful blind buy
The boyfriend seems to be recovering, today he managed to sit up and walk a bit with assistance. Will drive to Munich tomorrow afternoon to visit for the weekend.
Glad your boyfriend is recovering well!
Sounds like things are going pretty well for your boyfriend, post surgery. I hope that positive trend continues!
SOTD = Dior Dune
Not on theme but because Dune! I will be on theme tomorrow and Friday where it will be ?!
In other news:
– there’s a bottle of Guerlain 190 Anniversary perfume at La Maison. Now, they have to figure out logistics!
– moving work location back to NYC. My boss is leaving it up to me to decide when! I don’t know when yet as I have a few pending items that can only be done at my current location.
Wow, loads of exciting news for you both with perfume and work! That bottle of Guerlain 190 is going to have quite the story attached to it when you finally have it in hand.
For sure. The SA’s manager was in Paris and if I were to suggest a way, I would say for the manger to carry it back with her in checked luggage and go from there. I am sure there’s all sorts of liability but it is not the $14,000 bottle so the monetary risk is low compared to a reasonable payoff.
Finally you got it!
Until the bottle is in my hot little hands…but work wise, yes.. Not a new role, just a change in scenery.
you must feel fortunate to have an accomadating boss!
sorry, can’t not correct my spelling errors
I do! Thanks, tiffanie!
Super excited about that bottle! And, as I understand it, you will be in for an easier commute, with your new location?
Me too about the bottle but I won’t count my chickens before they hatch!
Yes, an easier commute but, slightly longer (if I choose to walk to the office from Penn Station) and more expensive and I have to do 3 tax returns. In the end, I feel it is worth it!
Like lillyjo, I’m very excited about your holy grail bottle! I bet the scent is divine!
The heat index was 107F today. To quote Beavis & Butthead, “This sucks!”
SOTD = the last of my AG Ninfeo Mio sample. I guess I need to figure out something else to grab tomorrow!
lol lol lol
and sorry about the heat!
I usually don’t mind summer weather, but the super sticky days are off the chart gross!
It is disgusting outside and about to get worse. I am hoping for a good soaking rain because my car was a playground for some nasty pigeons!
Oh, those dirty birds! That can be difficult stuff to remove.
You’re right about the dirty birds! I’m hearing thunder so I hope the stuff washes away!
A really nasty line of thunderstorms rolled thru my area about 40 minutes ago. All sorts of alerts and warnings came with it.
Looking forward to your next pick!
It was one of those days when I wonder why we bother keeping outside furniture….
One of those busy work days where I’ll have to read comments this evening. I’m in January Scent Project Smolderose and have enjoyed it.
Hope you get to relax this evening.
Thanks, lillyjo! It should be a relaxing evening.
Sotd = Terracotta Le Parfum
Terracotta is my summer Wednesday default perfume. Today it’s working perfectly.
Last night I wore Eau de Guerlain. I craved its minty cologne notes after eating Dirty Mint Chip ice cream from Coolhaus Ice Cream, an LA-based, women-owned business. Has real mint leaves, almost tasted too minty at first, but a few bites in I was hooked
Adore Gary Clark, Jr!
Adore Terracotta! ? Will you keep using it after summer is done, or swap it out for something else?
good question! only the nose knows
I enjoy Terracotta so very much, but my sniffer gets a little fatigued from it, something in the base is a little musky. So I will probably swap it out when the weather changes.
I went there; I put on only 2 teeny sprays of Chergui tonight, a little bit more subdued than my 6 or more sprays of Datura Noir last night. It feels like the temperature is creeping back up, we had rain for part of the day so it’s that warm, humid feeling now; I think Chergui will be quite yummy in this weather.
Crazy busy day. The managers were all out in meetings so the office was very quiet. I almost felt productive today!
I was tempted to wear Chergui today but I had already committed to Dune (because I already took the pic for IG ?).
That is being committed! Adding that your IG pictures are so well done.
I had to add another spray of Chergui for my wrists.
Thank you Gail!
Very late posting! AC Cafe Tuberosa today. Love it. Also realizing I just love tuberose. But the coffee adds something unique to this one. Also, good longevity which I know is unusual for AC…
L’Artisan Drole de Rose decant is waiting for me in the mailbox. Off to collect it! Blind buy. Crossing fingers.
I don’t think you will be disappointed
