I’m foregoing trashy Friday because the gossip is just not that good or interesting these days. Instead I’ll review L’Artisan Dzongkha, which is good and interesting.
Up for Monday is the new Narcisse from L’Artisan. Preview on that — I’m smitten. It’s not at all what I expected, less and more, and completely unique.
Dzongkha has notes of Litchee, Cardamom, tea leaf, peonoy, incense and iris, along with some leather notes.
When this first goes on, it is really bitter on me briefly, but it only takes about ten minutes, and it softens and gets spicier and warmer. I can smell the iris in there, it’s not the prominent note on me. It stays buried under the incense and spice, just floating in and out of the smell zone. I know Marina got a lot of iris when she tested it. I’m getting spice and tea and incense, like Passage D’Enfer and Tea for Two combined with a couple of other notes just to mix things up. I find it incredibly charming and original and absolutely perfect for fall and the colder weather months coming up.
So an update on the restylane/botox saga. I did make an appointment to do the restylane for the upper lip, I need my pout back. Don’t know about the Botox. I may give it a try in a couple of areas, just to see, but I’m still debating and am leaning to not right now. The good news is, when I have it done, about mid-October, you all will get the complete report here! Another thing I found out at my consult, they have all sorts of lamps and lasers that can get rid of ruddy cheeks. I’ve had ruddy cheeks forever, just sensitive skin and some broken capillaries. Not terrible, just annoying. But I’m going to sign up to do one of those treatments that gets rid of the broken capillaries. How cool will that be?!
Also coming up — hopefully next week, if it gets here — a review of the new foundation from Giorgio Armani. I’m a huge fan of their illimuninating foundation, it’s the only thing I’ll wear, but this new one sounds like absolute perfection, it is supposed to smooth your face as well.
Now, bear with me when March is gone, it’s tough for me to do five days a week of posting, but I sure will try! Some of the posts could be weak to quite weak, though. You are welcome to poke fun at me when I do something really lame out of desperation. Y’all have a great weekend. I’m off to go to the fall colors in my hair, the ambers and golds and beige and caramel instead of the blonde highlights. I love this time of year and the switch to the warm tones.
