This blog is for rambling about, well, everything that interests me. Gardening. The Farm. Perfume. Fashion. Photography. Fried chicken. Books. Clutter. Hoarding. Sewing. Writing. Murder Mysteries. Bacon. TV. Movies. Restaurants. Cooking. Oh, and don't forget the cat pictures.

SOTD: Bois 1920 Sushi Imperiale
Actually, I'm surprised to find that I could have worn Un Crime Exotique (well, I could have if I owned more than a drained sample vial), or Thereoma. Where I had one winter celebratory fragrance, now I have three.
Do I need three? Does having three fragrances for one type of occasion add enjoyment to that occasion, because I have more choices? Or would I derive greater enjoyment from simply having one fragrance for the occasion, one that I know that I'll wear, that I put on as part of the ritual of preparing for the event?
I don't know, and I'm too full of cookies just now to say. But I'll be thinking about it.
Review Roundup: Is here.

Of COURSE you can have more than one. You can have--well, maybe not twenty, but several. Did anyone comment on Sushi? I rarely get comments on my fragrance. It's like a secret. I might need to spray more.ReplyDelete
Gosh, I hope this works this time... sometimes I go to comment and get no comment box (all blank below the "post a comment" line and the dotted line under it), and sometimes I'll get the comment box and then when I choose a comment profile, it will eat my comment. Pfthhlbbl.ReplyDelete
I'd like to have a few winter celebration scents. Okay, I DO have a few: Dolce Vita parfum is beautiful, all smooth and spicy. PdN Vanille Tonka makes me giggly. But I think Teo Cabanel Alahine is going to be *the* Christmas fragrance for years to come. I know it's waiting under the tree for me tomorrow... (I posted on my blog a few weeks ago the reason why it's Christmas for me. Love it love it.)
Of course, I don't think I could bear to wear it only on Christmas; it's too full of labdanum goodness not to wear all winter.
Twenty! Ooh! Brian, no comments at all. I think I do need to spray more, though Himself dislikes too much perfume, so it's a Difficult Balance. And I always fear that a comment would really be a polite way of saying that I'm wearing too much. I'm apparently perfume-shy, not about talking about it (I talk about it incessantly), but about wearing it.ReplyDelete
Oh, dear. About the comments, that is, Mals. I get a problem where it tells me that my request cannot be processed, but it doesn't eat anything - I just have to keep clicking (usually two more times max) to get the thing processed.ReplyDelete
OK, I'm adding all three of those perfumes to my Get A Sniff list. I really must control myself, but I'm starting to like several notes that I never liked before, and that means new worlds to sniff.
And welcome to the blog! And, Brian, I forgot to say, welcome! too. :)
