Happy International Children’s Book Day (aka Hans Christian Andersen's birthday)! Our community project for today: name a favorite children's book and wear a fragrance to match.
What fragrance did you pick? As always, do chime in with your scent of the day even if you’re not participating in the community project.
Today I went with a children's book I did not read until I was an adult: The Golden Compass (the title is Northern Lights in some markets) by Philip Pullman. To capture the Frozen North, I'm wearing The Different Company De Bachmakov.
Reminder: 4/9 will be Antiquities Friday...wear the oldest scent you own (you can interpret this as you like — the one you've owned the longest? worn the longest? the earliest launch date? whatever). Suggested by pyramus.
And for those of you who like to plan ahead, see Scent of the day ~ Friday community projects 2021, where I'll try to always have the next five or six weeks mapped out in advance.
Note: top image is an illustration from The Folio Society edition of The Golden Compass ("Since the publication of the first volume of His Dark Materials in 1995, Philip Pullman’s trilogy has won millions of readers, garnered countless awards and accolades and been adapted for stage and screen. The Amber Spyglass, the third volume, was the first ever children’s book to be awarded the Whitbread Book of the Year Award, confirming the trilogy as a work that demands to be read by all. The Folio Society’ incredible hardback edition is illustrated by Peter Bailey with black and white chapter openings by the author.")
