This is a quickie post because I’m jammed to the hilt with work and …..well, it’s suddenly FREEEEEEZING here. After some gorgeous high 70s Spring days we got hit with a massive storm. Then it got reallllly chilly. Low 40s. So now it’s wet and cold. Light’s back on in the coop. Even though the girls have the bulk of their feathers they are still pretty young and the shift probably isn’t good for them (and no, I am NOT going to wrap them in blankets! LOL! )
The first day of the storm it was in the 70s and that combo of warmth and wet just cried out for Iris scents. So I wore Xerjoff’s Irisss and Iris 39 and they were both delightful! The next day it dropped into the low 60s and that iris nearly brought up my breakfast! Isn’t that strange – just 20 degrees made all the olfactory difference in the world.
It’s now 46F here and it feels like 36F. I couldn’t figure out anything that would work – except Amouage Lyric and I suspect it’s due in large part to the gorgeous body creme. I was stepping out of a hot shower and the idea of roses and frankincense, slickered into that gorgeous creme, just seemed the perfect solution to a Really Cold Day.
And so it was. But this isn’t about Lyric – y’all already know how much I adore it. I’m really curious: what scents do you turn to when the weather has a sudden spasm? Hot to Cold? Rainy to Blistering Sun – we’re talking one of those 24-hr ‘WTF?’ shifts. What gets you through those???

ps: here’s another weird question for you: do any of you recall a post I did about Laboratorio Olfattivo? A few (2? 3?) weeks ago. I can’t find it anywhere and now I’m wondering if I just imagined it. I thought I had a giveaway in there and was going to have Carmine pull a winner. Did I just make all this up??? LMK! I’m feeling all Gaslight and everthang!
