OK, so it’s the Monday morning after a big Valentine’s Day weekend. I know many of you who were snowed in and iced up last week might have postponed your celebrations a day or two, like we did. If so, what did you end up doing?
Also, inquiring minds want to know: Did you get a fragrance from someone special, a friend or a family member? If not, what did you wear for the big red heart day/weekend?
I got a wonderful dinner out and a much-needed pedicure gift certificate, as DH tends to avoid perfume buying of any sort. And who could really blame him when I’ve got samples, decants and other miscellaneous fragrant items scattered hither and yon around the house? 🙂
As for me, I wore a variety of scents in honor of Valentine’s Day. Most notably, my sample of Aftelier’s Cuir de Gardenia came in the mail and I happily dabbed. I won’t go into the particulars of it as so many others have reviewed it and raved about this, but it’s really gorgeous – me likey – a LOT!! I thought about going back and sampling the solid perfume, but enjoyed the liquid so much that I’m leaving lovely enough alone.
I also pulled out my L’Arte di Gucci and Amouage Lyric Woman. Ah, such beautiful, sophisticated roses – among the best ravishing red valentine scents, in my opinion. And I rounded up Arquiste Anima Dulcis, Guerlain’s Iris Ganache and Gourmand Coquin, as there were no chocolates or sweets in the house Friday so I went with the next best things to satisfy my sweet tooth. (BTW, did anyone try any of the heart-shaped donuts from Dunkin’ Donuts? I had one at work earlier in the week – too cute!)
Anyhoo, here’s hoping everyone has a great week, hopefully with some sunshine, and no nasty weather surprises.
