This week got away from me, so I’m winging it a bit —
I said last week I ordered the roll-on of L from Soft Surroundings. It finally showed up…. man, I’m used to quick ship and them taking, like, ten days to send me a 10ml bottle was mildly annoying. It was quite the vanillic spice-bomb on my friend, so I was hoping it wouldn’t be terrible on me…. and it wasn’t. But whoa it smells so different on me! I wish you could smell me right now, it’s amazing, but it is pretty much honey and tobacco. I’m kind of blown away. The honey is dominant, with that little bit of a skanky edge to it although nowhere near, say, Miel de Bois (which I adore and own a bottle of, naturally.) And plenty of tobacco. Tobacco and honey. Really, it’s phenomenal, and four hours later the wattage hasn’t dimmed any. And this is a roll-on, I wonder what the spray would be like?! Y’all honey-tobacco freaks, and you know who you are, should consider checking this one out.
So right this second it smells like fall inside my living room — my fragrance, some cedar incense in the background, and I’m pretending it’s a chilly, rainy day outside, but actually it’s rainy and humid and awful. I even have the AC on, for pete’s sake. It’s 76 with 96% humidity. Go away, heat, I’m done with you. Bring on the wool sweaters and pumpkin pie and toasty radiators, I’m ready! I’m doing my quasi-seasonal fragrance rotation because I don’t really have room any more for it all, and that’s nice anyway because it’s easier to see what I have and actually wear it more often, you know? I ran across my bottle of Worth Courtesan (lol remember how I would not shut up about that stuff?) and spritzed some on and I still think it’s delish.
Sorry, that’s all the typing I can do, I need to continue with my wrist to my nose. Do you have a seasonal scent rotation? What are you looking forward to spritzing on the first cool-weather day? What do you think would happen if I wore Miel de Bois to work? How do you feel about a bright-colored (but elegant) bag for the office? (yeah, that’s random) Are you looking forward to making or eating some cool-weather comfort dishes? (stew! pumpkin bread! sweet potato pie!)
