It was a great week: warm and sunny weather (though for my vSO it’s a negative thing since he’s concerned about the drought), a lot of great food and wonderful time spent with my family and friends (including a perfumista friend – which was an extra treat).
I tried to catch up reading the blogs on my Reading List but I still have some posts to go through. I laughed a lot in the real life but didn’t find (or remember) anything for my Laughs section. Lemmings are still in a turkey coma so just a couple of lackadaisical ones are leisurely looking towards Spring 2013.
Since I’m a fan, I can’t help but get excited about this new Jo Malone Sugar & Spice collection though I’m annoyed that, again, it’ll be a limited edition and there will be 5 (five!) new scents. In a smaller bottles (30 ml) – which is good. A set of 9 ml bottles of the complete collection would have been even better.
Parfumista (Parfumistans blog) reviews wonderful Chypre Palatin by Parfums MDCI (and rates it 5): Chypre Palatin is a pleasant, versatile, elegant and very wearable fragrance that could be worn in daytime for office or formal events year around except during warm summer days. My precious decant came from Suzanne (Eiderdown Press). Every time I wear it I think of her with a gratitude. If you missed it, read her take on this perfume.
Lanier (scents memory): Named for Christian Dior’s muse and friend Mitzah Bricard it is heady and hypnotic but never overwhelming. It is what I would call deep and
multi layered in its design, a real stunner for me that never shouts but rather insinuates and seduces the one who wears it. I love this perfume and it’ll join my collection once my decant is gone.
One holiday is done, more to go. And I’m looking forward to all of them.
