It’s Friday and Rosa Parks Day, and we are finally past the midpoint of winter. Our community project for today: welcome the Year of Tiger by wearing a fragrance that projects or inspires power, bravery, self-confidence and ambition.
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.
I considered all sorts of heavy hitters for today, from Piguet Bandit to Yves Saint Laurent M7 (not that I have any left), but in the end I went with a fragrance that makes me feel like I could do anything: Parfum d'Empire Azemour Les Orangers. I will settle for partial credit, and I smell fantastic.
Reminder: 2/11 will be Duet Friday... wear two perfumes, one on each wrist or arm. You can choose two that seem made for each other, that bring out something special in each other, or that compete for the spotlight? (Suggested by Kanuka, who listed as inspiration Lakme’s flower duet, Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazlewood singing Jackson, Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett crooning softly in your ear, Billy Idol and Miley Cyrus belting out Rebel Yell.)
And for those of you who like to plan ahead, see Scent of the day ~ Friday community projects 2022, where I'll try to always have the next five or six weeks mapped out in advance.
