Hello, dear Posse folks. I am on the road and in and out of town for a few days to get a little beach time with my boys. I don’t know about you, but when I travel, I’m always a little wishy-washy about what to bring scent-wise.
Now if you’re going to a fabulous perfume destination, such as London, Paris, New York, L.A., etc., I think it might be cool to go commando and get your sniff on at one of the many wonderful perfume stops there, trying lots of new fragrances, and maybe, just maybe, finding something new to love that would make a great souvenir to scent your travel scrapbook. I’ve never done this but sure would like to one day, say, in London or Paris.
However, if you happen to be going to a perfume Deadsville, well, it might be a good idea to take along some favorites to keep you company.
At my destination, I think there’s an Ulta and Dillard’s – nothing wrong with those, of course, but I’m not likely to find anything new there to explore (although I will have a ball in Ulta looking at the shelves and shelves of nail polish). So I’m packing some summer standbys like Kai and Chanel Eau de Cologne: Those are pleasant, fresh and feel like summer to me. Also, I’m further testing a sample I just got and am quite liking after round one: Penhaligon’s Ostara. I’ll try it to my heart’s content as I travel, and will report back later. I can’t sample much during a regular workweek at my fragrance-free office, so vacation days are prime time for playing and experimenting.
What about you? What are your favorite travel, road trip or vacation scents? Do you try to match your fragrance to your destination and/or the weather or do you tend to take mainly comfort/favorite scents?
