Oh, happy day –– it’s finally October! And in my neck of the woods, that means fall is getting close. We’ve already had a little taste of it with several nights in the 50s and a day or two in the 70s, so that’s encouraging. In addition to the falling temps, it’s so enjoyable to see the leaves changing, although around here, it’s practically November before we get any good local leaf peeping. But that’s what a trip to the mountains is for. Beyond these autumn joys, this time of year is extra-special for me because our wedding anniversary and both of our birthdays are coming up within the next month or so. So a lot to look forward to in my household in October and early November.
Anyhoo, I’m beginning to poke through my perfume drawers and see what I want to be wearing throughout the coming weeks. Off the top of my head looks like I’ll be pulling out several of the lovely Lanvin vintage extraits that STC offered earlier this year, Guerlain’s Cuir Beluga, and MDCI Fetes Persanes. And also Annick Goutal Nuit Etoilee and Lolita Lempicki Si Lolita to tide me over on the remaining warm-ish days that fade into cooler evenings. Because here in the Deep South, autumn comes on in fits and starts, throwing a few 80-plus degree days into the mix, just to keep us on our toes and keep our closets confused. But hopefully the 90s are gone for good, now that it’s October.
What about you folks? Are you ready for fall where you live? Or has it already visited you? What scents are you most looking forward to wearing? And of course, please share what you’re digging out for the opposite seasonal shift, for those of you in the Southern Hemisphere.
