Happy Monday, everyone, and if you’re in the U.S., happy Labor Day to you! Since it’s a holiday here and many folks are in and out, traveling, etc., let’s keep this short and sweet. What are your plans for today, and what are your favorite holiday or weekend cookout scents?
What’s your choice to wear to your neighbor’s backyard barbecue, to that picnic in the park, or to a friend’s pool party? Or around the firepit or fireplace, for those of you who are chilling in the Southern Hemisphere?
As for my holiday today, it will not quite be labor-free. I’ll be cleaning for a while, working at the office for a bit and then picking up my son from his weekend at the beach, but it’ll still be a pretty low-key day. It looks to be warm and on the muggy side, so I’m thinking something soft, yet refreshing that won’t overpower, such as PdN’s Eau Soleil, Dior’s Escale a Portofino, or a recently rediscovered favorite, Guerlain’s Cologne du Parfumeur.
An added bonus: They’re instant mood-lifters for me; I can’t help but be happy when wearing them. (Add to that the luxury of having some time to myself, and I will be blissful indeed!) And they’re the kind of scents unlikely to interfere with anyone’s holiday cookout or activities. Heaven knows, you don’t want your hostess (or host) giving you the stink-eye and mentally crossing you off his or her invitation list for the foreseeable future. Or maybe you do … In that case, apply favorite heavy-hitter with abandon and let ‘er rip. 😉
Anyway, on the subject of holidays and cookouts, I do hope that March will stop by and mention that unusual (sausage? smoky/barbecued meat?) scent she used to talk about. Can’t for the life of me remember what it was.
