Happy Monday, dear Posse folks! As we end our spring break, we are gearing up for the next event/occasion in our household: Easter Sunday. My son is a teenager now but he still likes to get a basket. In his, there’s always a big chocolate bunny, a few other candies, and something else, like a movie, book, etc. Not sure what DH has up his sleeve for the basket this year, but I snapped up a tin of rooibos tea that he loves (that was very hard to find), so I’m hoping that will make him happy that the Easter bunny remembered him once again.
When I was little, Easter dresses and hats were quite the thing (thankfully the gloves were not required when I came along). Now not so much — I don’t wear dresses or skirts at all anymore, but I do love a hat now and then, just not one of those fancy ones that used to be de rigueur at Easter. I have a pretty, colorful silky top that I’ll wear with dress pants to church, and my husband will cook a ham or turkey and we’ll likely take it out of town to visit my mother-in-law. She’s getting up in years (93), but so loves to celebrate Easter.
However, I am debating what to wear fragrance-wise that day. Gucci Envy is gorgeous but can be a little cold, Arquiste Ella not quite spring-y enough (too much in the chypre vein?). Methinks perhaps a light spritz of the always lovely Carnal Flower, or Byredo’s oh-so-pretty La Tulipe, or perhaps something lily of the valley-ish? But it will depend on what I can pull out of my (non- Easter) hat. I’ve had to do some major spring cleaning in my perfume room (aka our dining room), so heaven knows if I can put my hands on anything anymore, ha!
What about you? For those of you who celebrate Easter, what are your traditions and family favorites? What fragrance(s) do you like to wear then? Or for those of you who attend church, are there certain scents that you’re partial to wearing to services?
