It's Almost-Friday (and not a moment too soon). Also, the World Day to Combat Desertification and Drought. What fragrance are you wearing?
I'm in Hermès Eau Claire des Merveilles, which I probably would have bought no matter what bottle they'd used, but the bottle is perfect.
Reminder: on 6/18, we're doing edition 3 of Bottle Porn Friday, by request. Wear something you bought in part or in full because of the bottle, or a fragrance you think has a beautiful (or otherwise perfect) bottle. (suggested by michael and happy888cat, this is a repeat of a project we did in 2015 and 2017.)
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.

I made a twofer today. Eau the blue and Dovana together. I love the round Dovana bottle with the heavy brushed metal cap, and of course the Blvgari tea bottles are beautiful.
The Bvlgari bottles are very nice. Even the caps. They didn’t cheap out .
Except for the Omnias. I don’t like all the plastic that is obviously plastic.
Oh true! I forgot about them, lol.
It’s amazing that a company that designs such beautiful jewelry signed off on those clunky things. And I’m one of those people who likes the Omnias, so I’m stuck with those badly designed bottles.
I’m wearing Pamplelune, for the scent, not for the bottle, although I like the Aqua Allegoria bottles.
You smell wonderful! I adore Pampleune!
Morning! Its almost the weekend. Yay.
I am in Rahat Loukoum. The bell jar is such a simple design yet so elegant. Extra beauty points for the engraving… ?
Lucky You!! I’ve always wanted a bell jar too but never bought one as of yet
Those bell jars definitely qualify for bottle porn!
Morning all, my SOTD is Niki de Saint Phalle, the galbanum will bloom nicely in today’s heat. I have no motivation to work out today, but I must. Have a lovely day everyone!
What a beautiful bottle! ?
I really miss some of the unique bottles that perfume was housed in. One thing I love about antique shops is the bottles I find.
I have my dear aunts bottle. She would be 104 if she were alive and gosh knows what year she was gifted it.
It’s a standout.
SOTD is Volutes EDP
I love the Loulou bottle, but not fond of the scent. There used to be great designs.
If anyone wants a tasty and relatively guilt-free treat, I just discovered Yasso Greek Yogurt bars. Most have under 150 calories and are very tasty. So far, my favorite flavors are the Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip and Sea Salt Chocolate Caramel crunch bars.
Oh I love Niki and I regret giving away my bottle!
That is a gorgeous bottle! I was stoked when I found a bottle with my zodiac sign on it, but the one you have is fantastic.
I fell for that version, too! Love it.
Amazing bottle and perfume!
Wearing TDC I Miss Violet.
Another gorgeous cool, sunny, breezy day, before the temperatures go up to the 90’s during the weekend.
Today I am working from home in the morning, since my field visit in the afternoon is in my neighborhood. Wish it were like that all the time!
Having a bowl of Dunkin Mocha Latte cereal. Very tasty!
Happy almost Friday! ?
I love violet, you smell marvelous! Wait, Dunkin makes cereal? That is dangerous information!
I don’t eat cereal often, but I’m one of those, pour more cereal in the bowl until the milk is gone.
In ‘Liz speak’ that means the entire box.
I am not a cereal fan either. I only eat it once in a while. I recently discover the Dunkin cereals at CVS. They come in two flavors: Mocha Latte and Caramel Macchiato. The coffee smell every time you open those boxes is so energizing! The Caramel Macchiato is my favorite. Like you, I keep adding the cereal to my bowl until the milk is gone. You can get them at any supermarket.
Oh no, this is dangerous information to have! Both the flavors sound very tasty!
It is dangerous! ?
Is that cereal caffeinated?!?
Unfortunately, it has a very small amount of caffeine. 10mg per serving or 1/10 of a cup of coffee. The flavor and the smell are great!
That’s not bad. But it is a good argument for not wolfing down the whole box in one sitting!
I’m wearing Nishane Ani, an extra goody that came in one of my split packages. Wow. It’s gorgeous. A lot of people describe it as a vanilla-centric scent, but thus far I’m getting a strange and beautiful mix of citrus, spice, and woods that is really working for me.
I’m on my second Vietnamese coffee (I’m afraid I’ve gotten used to the industrial strength, and regular drip seems pallid in comparison), and I’m planning on getting some light house chores done today. No going outside if I can help it; it’s going to be another scorcher.
Smell good, everybody!
I got a sample of that from Lucky scent as an extra, and am also very very pleased with it. Every time I wear it I like it more. It has moved up the next FB list quite rapidly.
Oooh, Vietnamese coffee! Yum. I made some Vietnamese style cold noodle salad with grilled Lemongrass Bison the other day that was just delish. Vietnamese is getting to be my favorite “ethnic” food choice….
Try all of the Bánh mì (Vietnamese sandwich) variations — scrumptious!
Beware, just in case: they usually come with a lot of sliced jalapeños on them!
Wow, that noodle salad sounds fantastic. Now I am starving.
I love Vietnamese coffee! Super sweet and creamy. Calories be damned!
The noodle salad sounds delicious! We were going to head out to our favorite Middle Eastern restaurant but now I’m rethinking dinner choice….
It’s 90 today in our neighborhood. Almost too warm to eat.
Ooooh Vietnamese coffee is an excellent choice!
Wearing Chanel Coco Noir which I had to have because of that fabulous black bottle. I knew it wouldn’t be very noir and it’s not, but it is elegant and spicy.
I briefly considered wearing the Extrait but decided to save that for my personal black bottle porn week ?. You smell great!
Love that black bottle!
Dame Minty Man which is like a refreshing citrus mint cocktail.?
Bottle Porn: Tenue de Soirée
Yesterday my kids finished school..so now its on to “mommy summer camp”
Today we are going to the Met and get some froyo
Your kids are lucky, but I know you’ll be busier and more restricted now. Hope that is all right…. are you still taking your language classes?
Yes, but my Italian teacher is on vacation. I will try to find a speaking partner in the meantime.
If ‘mommy summer camp’ involves the Met and froyo, then they must be clamoring to go! It sounds wonderful…
On the rooftop at the Met they have a giant blue big bird
I saw that blue Big Bird in the news. It made my heart ache for the happy days when my children were small and wanted to go everywhere with me. The Met was one of our favorite stops. Enjoy your adventures!
Heatwave Day #2: Carnal Flower, bring it.
heh heh, CF positively blooms in the heat.
You smell marvelous!
Scent: I’m commando so far. New kitten in the house, and the older kitten in the house hates perfume. She needs some reassurance today, so I may skip fragrance.
Some favorite bottles:
Robin, you are right; the Merveilles bottles are fantastic. I have only a mini of Eau de Merveilles, but I took a good look at the full-size bottle last week. It’s wonderful, and nearly enough to tip me into purchase. In general, Hermes has some great bottles.
Other favorites include the dark, witchy Natori from 2009 and the quirky Marni bottle from 2012. I bought the Natori, but didn’t enjoy the juice as much as I thought I would, so when I was charmed by the Marni bottle, I put on the brakes. No regrets.
Current temptation: Chanel Paris – Biarritz. There. Maybe if I put that out there, the lemming will release its grip on my brain.
PSA: Get those Father’s Day cards in the mail if you haven’t already!
That Natori bottle was so lovely. I, too, bought it, but eventually gave it away. I can’t even remember what it smelled like at this point, but the bottle design was very cool.
Yes, the EDM bottle is great. Their ad copy is also really magical. I just can’t with these ads with teen models and someone whispering “the Eau de parfum”.
The calligraphy LE collector bottles of EdM were also gorgeous. Just saw one on Sephora.ae, unfortunately too far away for most of us.
How are your kitties getting along?
I’m in Tauer Une Rose Chyprée this morning. This is one of the fancier bottles I have, since it has the beads inside. (This should tell you about the state of my fancy bottle collection…it’s not very fancy.)
I love Une Rose Chypree… it is one of my favorite Tauers…you smell wonderful!
You smell wonderful, Tauer roses are the best.
I just looked up Une Rose Chypree and wow I didn’t know that one had beads in it. It is as pretty and fancy as it can get!! Love it ?
That’s an excellent Christmas perfume you have there!
I’m in VCA Rose Rouge today thanks to tulipani. Started off as a jammy rose, and about a half hour in, the patchouli and cocoa are emerging. Feels like it could be a quieter cousin to Angel.
Drinking a tea cuvee of second steepings from yesterday’s assam and some chai.
When I wear VCA Rose Rouge it reminds me of Lancôme Parfait de Roses, have you tried that one? Same jammy rose smell to me.
Haven’t tried it, yet. I do love a jammy rose.
Jammy rose + chocolate + patch sounds good to me!
30*C temperatures have arrived and I’m in Arancia di Sicilia from Perris Monte Carlo.
Hot! That is a refreshing perfume!
WOOF! That’s hot. But you smell fabulous!
I really want a bottle of that!
I nearly went with Eau des Merveilles today, but the hand shot straight to Jour d’Hermes … and who can blame it? That bottle is easily one of the most gorgeous pieces of glass in my closet. And now that it’s below half full, I can actually spray it with one hand. ? I’m considering a BUB in the smaller size, and letting the big kahuna stay partially full forever just because it’s so elegantly decorative.
agree! those bottles are beautiful,
I have minis of both that I adore.
And you smell wonderful.
Lovely hink of glass, I agree.
Really pretty bottle, yep.
H.G. Vivacious today, both for the smell, and the very pretty little bottle, not flashy, but a perfect example of the form, I would say. I love flashy blingie bottles, but I have not found a flashy blingie bottle that has a juice in it I love, so most of my collection are simple understated niche perfume line bottles…
I think HG bottles are so elegant, and they feel wonderful in the hand.
I am wearing Viva La Juicy Le Bubbly today and drinking a cup of Irish breakfast tea. I bought this as a graduation gift for my niece. I liked it so much, that I bought one for me too. I am scent twins with a 22 year old, lol.
This is the biggest and most pink bottle I own, and I love it It even has pink bubbles on the bottom of bottle.
I haven’t tried this one yet. I do like the Bowdelicious one, with all the bows.
Robin, I do love those Hermes Merveilles bottles. Too bad none of the fragrances really speak to me. Eau Claire was probably my favorite.
I’m in Chergui, boring bottle, great fragrance. Another gorgeous day in Seattle and planning a mid-day walk. The sun in the early morning is so inspiring – I’ve already watered plants, done laundry, tidied up, practiced yoga/barre, and caught up on work email.
Whenever I see “Chergui” my brain converts it to “Cheugy”, which is an unfair association because Chergui is great stuff.
ha ha made me laugh!
The Merveilles bottles are so completely perfect. Eau des Merveilles is the only one that speaks deeply to my heart, thank goodness. Otherwise I would have bought them all so I could line them up and admire them at different angles.
go you! all I’ve done today is eat breakfast, take my vacationing friend’s dog for a long walk, read NST, and make a to do list. You just reminded me that I put a load of laundry in the washer but didn’t start it. Oops! Better go do it now
I may be the only one who dislikes those bottles. They are too tippy and awkward, imho. I have several of them and whenever I try to reach pass them in my perfume cabinet I knock them all over.
Yah, they are tippy little darlings. Someone I know has two Merveilles. She sits the bottles flat back to flat back so they can lean on each other.
That’s a great idea. But then you need two of them…
I do have two, the Elixir and the Eau, but somehow they always manage to get separated!
Springpansy, the early morning sunshine and cool weather inspired me to loaf on the front porch, and then I never really caught up today. So you’ve put me to shame!
Not at all – loafing also sounds great! I’m quite behind on housework so I have plenty left to accomplish.
Has there ever been a “Boring Bottle, Great Fragrance” CP?
That would seriously be too easy!!
Wearing Alien Eau Extraordinaire. I do like the bottles for this line, but this particular flanker is tall and curved instead of angular.
Mugler, generally speaking, has avoided really boring bottles
Hello NSTers! I am semi-CP-compliant in SL Santal de Mysore, which has become my Scent of Appendectomy Recovery. I have a bell jar I picked up in the Palais Royal shop in Paris in 2018. I certainly didn’t buy the scent FOR the bell jar, but I think the bell jar is beautiful.
It’s a billion degrees in my part of CA, but the heat plays well with the scent, amps up the right parts of it. Recovery has felt slow for a piddly little laparoscopic surgery (how long does it take a youngish, healthy person to recover from three teeny holes?), but I feel a little better nearly every day. Yesterday I even managed to go on a walk up and down my street!
I’m glad you’re feeling better and stronger, even if it feels slow! I had a minor surgery last year and was astonished by how tired I was for a couple of weeks after — our bodies definitely need time and energy to heal, and I hope you have plenty of time and space to recover!
Wow–glad you recovered, though! Good to hear the fatigue is normal. Thanks; I’m fortunate to get the time and help I need right now!
Three tiny holes, yes … but there was a lot of air pumped in and things moved around and held in places they ordinarily don’t occupy while various long pointy instruments did their work. I think you’re entitled to some recuperation time!
Exactly this. So called minor surgery is VERY traumatic for the body; I think only children who have surgeries bounce back because their bodies are in growing up mode. Any older than say 18-20 and it takes a while.
Yeesh. Gross to think about, but you’re quite right!
My husband had an appendectomy a few years ago. I think he felt his recovery was a bit slow to begin and then improved quickly. No fun, but I hope you’ll feel better fast!
Thank you, springpansy! It’s good to hear that the recovery accelerates
Hope you’re having a pain-free, easy convalescence.
Thank you, Aurora!
Abdominal surgery takes time to recover from, even if it was not major. Oddly enough people tend to recover more quickly from thoracic surgery. Abdomens are mysterious things, just be patient, you will be well ?
And all of the organs swishing around abnormally post-op — so disconcerting.
Thanks, austenfan true, abdomens are quite mysterious. I’m not enjoying finding out how absolutely everything we do uses abdominal muscles!
Very glad you had a walk while you smell fantastic.
It took me two weeks of quiet time and naps every day to get my energy back after I said bye-bye to my gall bladder. Those three little incisions mean business. Please take your time and take good care of yourself.
Thank you, tiffanie! Good to know; glad you’re all better now!
I had my gallbladder removed in 2014 laparoscopically and it took me a week to manage to get up off the couch! Be patient and don’t push yourself too hard or quickly – you will feel better, just not immediately.
I’m sorry that I mossed your appendectomy news – I’m so glad you’re OK!
Than you, sistine! Oof–glad you did eventually recover!
I hope you continue to have a swift recovery!
Thank you, missionista
I had a laparascopic procedure done which didn’t even require making any new holes, and I still felt like crap for weeks afterward. I think it’s normal. Relax and be gentle with yourself.
Oof. Good to know. Thanks (I also didn’t know they could reuse holes!)
It was through a naturally existing orifice.
Wow, thanks all–it’s so comforting to hear that it’s SUPPOSED to take this long to recover!
Considering how recently your surgery was, walking down the street is amazing progress! Don’t push things, though. You’ve been discombobulated enough as it is.
Yay for baby steps! Surgery can take a lot out of you, no matter how small the holes are!
I can’t believe that I forgot to post the past 2 days. I’ve posted before on how one friend keeps changing his cellphone number, well he changed it again and I had to hunt for it again and when I called it, it rang once and got a loud beep and the call was ended. Don’t know what’s up with that at this point. Wearing Pleasures today.
That is weird!
Inspired by AnnE yesterday, I am wearing Coco Noir. A stunning bottle! I had to get over it not smelling anything like Coco before I finally bought it, lol.
It’s the last nice day here before the humidity returns, but I will get some much needed rain.
That dark bottle is fabulous, and you smell wonderful!
You smell great & love that bottle.
Bleck for the humidity striking back, but yay for the possibility of getting much needed rain!
It’s supposed to get sticky here this weekend.
1) Am in Cap Neroli. The bottle is…very simple, to be honest: a simple square, with the Nicolai name stamped on it, and the label with name of the fragrance. Not bottle porn worthy, really!
1a) But I was reading a bit on Fragrantica, about how one person had bought a perfume collection after a person had passed away recently, and there was Cap Neroli in the collection. It was almost empty, and all the other bottles were full. They found that Cap Neroli was the least exciting. In their words: “It’s just good, fresh, mood-enhancing fragrance.”
I agree it’s not exciting- it’s really lovely and evocative, but not exciting. I am thinking of that collector who, towards the end of their life, used as much Cap Neroli as possible, to enhance their mood and bring sunshine and freshness in their lives.
2) This weekend will be a scorcher- a perfect time to oil and cure the countertops in the back garden! I will probably also take a quick break to Hood River!
I adore Cap Néroli, mind you I often layer with Néroli Intense. Cap is happier and has a certain insouciance about it.
I need to try Neroli intense! I like Fig Tea & Cap Neroli, so I think it would be a perfect blind buy!
lovely story, thank you for sharing. I have a bottle of Cap Neroli that deserves more love. Now’s the time!
If you are getting hot weather this weekend I agree! It is a perfect time to give it a try!
I like that story, too and hey, “good, fresh and mood-enhancing”? That’s pretty awesome right there.
Wearing Tubéreuse by MPG a house that does some seriously gorgeous scents in ( imho) hideous and pretentious packaging, I’ve added Madagascan Jasmine, smelling like summer.
hideous and pretentious! perfect description, it made me laugh.
Glad to be of service!
You’re right about those jars. All of their “jewels” come off and then they look even worse.
My bottles are intact so far, but boy do I find them ugly.
MPG is a great house. I love that the “jewels” are really heavy in the hand though.
I have great respect for MPG, in spite of their bottles ?
Hideos and pretentious… that could be Roja Dove as well. LOL.
I don’t think I have ever tried any Rojas, they are expensive I believe.
Serge Lutyens Fille de Berlin, I’m enjoying smelling the different varieties of roses around our village at the moment, so was inspired to spritz on fille now its a bit cooler this evening. I love the old 50ml bottles too, simple and elegant, really don’t like the new 100 ml ones.
The 100ml feel big and clunky… not an improvement.
Love Fille de Berlin…really need to get a bottle, unless they’ve reformulated since I smelled it some time ago. You’re making me miss Germany, where we had tons of roses in our neighbourhood, both wild and cultivated. They were all so fragrant! Somehow here in Canada it seems lots of people grow roses but for some reason they just aren’t fragrant unless you stick your nose in them…same for the rose I have in my backyard, which was marketed as particularly fragrant. It’s a mystery that’s probably all in my head, but maybe I should Google it someday.
I have several David Austin ‘English’ roses that were marketed as very particularly fragrant, and they’re only mildly so. But the ye olde varieties in my garden and the Barbra Streisand tea rose are all scent bombs, thankfully!
In Ashoka today – since Mom was teaching me how to cook (it is an ongoing process, since I am a mom myself now it is time to learn for my daughter). My hand almost reached gor Tango in this overcast weather but I decided on something less offensive and more soft.
Just realized The Different Company (searched the website because I DO like their bottles, hello Friday Perfume Porn Day) offers affordable 10ml mini travel sprays. My impulse was to buy at least one but stopped myself. I am saving extra change from groceries and such for a 15ml bottle of Tuberoza. The cost will be around $110 US dollars BUT I really want to add this cute mini to my collection.
I hope Tuberoza joins your perfume collection soon.
I have the 50mls but I want the 15ml cutie as well.
small = cute always!
I have a nephew who was huge for his age (he still is). When he was 3, I used to say “You’re so cute!” and he would get so angry and say “I’M NOT CUTE!” !while stomping . To which I responded, “If you’re not cute, then what are you?” He hesitated and said “I’m, I’m ummm MEDIUM!”
Hajusuuri – and his answer makes him even cuter! ♥
Random sample of the day is Pas de Boue Musk from Soivohle. I think my skin is tilting it a little too woody
It sounds pretty woody from the description…
SotD = Songes
Songes felt right when it was sunny this morning, but now clouds and cool air have rolled in. It’s ok with me though. Songes always makes me happy.
I have a moon bottle that looks like this one:
Yes, I bought it because I love the bottle. The perfume is a favorite, too. Mine is even redder than the photo shows. I was told that’s due to the high amount of natural jasmine in the perfume.
And now it’s raining here!
Have a wonderful day, perfume pals, whether there’s sun or rain.
Ooh, that’s a glorious bottle!
Hooray for rain if you need it, and for a cool and peaceful afternoon.
we do need the rain here, I was planning to water my lawn and was happy to hold off for another day or so, thanks to the rain!
Very beautiful bottle, and I attracted to dense colors of perfume juice for some reason. That is so great that Your bottle contents are even redder!!
I also love the look of perfumes that are darker in color, especially those that are not the traditional yellow-gold.
You smell lovely and the bottle is gorgeous!
I have a Songes moon and stars bottle but it’s darker and more of a brownish rather than an orange color. I can’t find any photos of mine online but I will figure out how to attach a photo.
thank you, allo I do love Songes, both for the perfume and bottle.
What a lovely and evocative bottle! I didn’t know AG even made fun looking bottles like that
thanks, koyel AG also did round bottles with butterfly stoppers. Very pretty.
That’s a gorgeous bottle! I have a little Songes, too, but it’s in a manufacturer’s mini which isn’t terribly interesting, bottle-wise. However, the perfume is wonderful.
agree! Songes is wonderful, that’s the perfect word. It gives me a little thrill every time I wear it.
Hurray for a happy-making perfume, no matter what!
yes! hurray for perfume, the source of so much happiness.
No pretty bottles for me today. Coco body cream and a smidge of ‘Narciso Musc’ oil in my hair.
Bet that was a nice mix.
I was in Voyage EDT during the day and this evening Sensi.
Commando today – my husband had an allergic reaction to something mysterious and his eyes swelled shut, so we’ve been at urgent care and then resting. My body cream has a really nice orange scent, but it’s long faded.
Oh dear! I hope you can figure out what the culprit was so that he can avoid it in the future!
Oh no! How frightening! Yes I too hope they will find a solution very soon. Keep us posted.
Oh no, poor guy. Hope they can get him sorted out soon!
I hope your husband feels better soon.
Oh no, hope he recovers quickly and that you can figure out what is causing the reaction!
Hope you figure it all out!
Yikes! Fingers crossed that the offending allergen is quickly ID’ed and then gotten rid of!
Oh oh, I hope it resolves quickly.
Yikes, swift recovery to him and to you, that must have shot your nerves!
My bottle porn today is Amouage Fate. I’ll take a picture to post on IG later today. I didn’t buy it for the bottle, because I had taken a liking to the juice through a decant, but I do find the iridescent, gold-topped bottle with its tiny gem on top quite beautiful. In fact I like all the Amouage bottles, but the other two I have are both white so they’re kind of boring (Honour Woman and Love Mimosa). The blue, green, and yellow ones are very pretty. I like that little gold dome they all have. On the other hand I do not like the Opus Library bottles. I only have one (Opus VIII) and think it’s incredibly awkward. Along with the annoying round/flat Eau des Merveilles bottles, this one is the one that gets knocked over the most in my perfume cabinet. It’s tall and curved and narrow, a stupid design if you ask me. (I know no one did.)
The amouge bottles are so beautiful
Isn’t Love Mimosa in a yellow bottle? Anyway, I agree that Fate bottle is lovely.
Amouage Fate definitely qualifies as bottle pr0n!
I’m forever teetering on the brink of buying Fate on account of the gorgeous rainbowy bottle (I like the perfume too…)
No bottle porn for me, but wearing Sel de Vetiver, which smells so great I don’t even care what the bottle looks like.
You smell wonderful — I love Sel de Vetiver!
No fancy bottles with me at the moment, just decants, so I’m wearing Indult Tihota for cheerful vanilla goodness. Yay for sunshine!
You smell gorgeous!
Sotd is Philosykos on one wrist and Premier Figuier on the other.
I like both bottles and these 2 equally lovely fig inspired fragrances.
I just read an older NST thread that compared various fig fragrances. Curious how those of you who like these 2 fragrances would compare them. To my nose they are pretty close – maybe Philosykos is earthier and PM is more floral?
I’ve smelled Philosykos and Premier Figuier Extreme, and I would say both are on the leafy green side. No much, if any, in the way of earthy or floral notes to my nose. YMMV.
That helps – “leafy green” is a much better way to describe it than than earthy. And rather than floral I should have said fruity (aka the Philosykos seems more stem-y and FE has more of the fruit aspect of fig)
Enjoying the same gorgeous weather that perfumelover67 and Lovestosmellgood are experiencing. I even had the sliding door to the patio open earlier this afternoon. ???
SOTD = Oriza L. LeGrand Reve d’Ossian EdP, from the sample stash. No fancy bottle for me today. But I keep thinking about the full size of this one. Maybe someday…
Oh oh, you’re in an acquisitive mood!
Yeah. Maybe if I ignore it, it will get bored and leave? ??
And I am enjoying the same weather as jalapeño, pfl67 AND ltsg! (BTW, spellcheck changed ltsg to KRAFT)!
SOTD = Kilian, Love don’t be shy Extreme
I was inspired by She-ra and ltsg!
Almost ? ? ?.
I am claiming CP points!
Back to work for another half an hour or so and then I am going out for a walk!
Hope that you were/are able to get a walk in this today!
I did! It was beautiful!
Late to the game today! I’m in my discontinued Tunisian perfume which was perfect for today’s beautiful warm weather (bergamot, Sicilian lemon, eucalyptus, mint, tonka, sandalwood, amber, musk).
My tummy is back to normal and I celebrated yesterday evening by baking a whole sea bass with asparagus and tomato, all marinated in olive oil, garlic, lemon juice, fresh dill, and salt and pepper and served with homemade sourdough and corn on the cob.
I only realized when I’d gotten home with my fish that it really was *whole* and I had to scale it, clean it and everything! The kitchen was a mess, but it was worth it.
Your dinner sounds delicious! (But sorry about having to scale the fish, that is not my favorite)
