Hey there Perfume Posse, Well next week I’ll be off on my India Adventure. I haven’t been back there since 2013 and am super excited. My last long term partner Varun is a hotelier there. We were together a few years in Sydney but then his father took ill and Varun had to go back to run the families hotels. We tried to keep it alive trans-continentally but it was hard. So SUPER excited to hang out with him again.
India Adventure 2017
This is my first time going to India in the monsoon season and it’s always been on the wishlist. We are planning to go north to Assam and Darjeeling where neither of us have yet been. Varun has organised 10 days with a driver up there and a couple in Rajasthan with his family before going back to Delhi for a quick hello and then home. As always, too many things to do and not enough time.
We are expecting temperatures to be around the 20-25C highs each day with days of rain and sunshine. That is kind of Sydney spring weather so I am pretty sure that it will be comfortable.
What perfumes am I thinking of taking?
Currently the list looks like this. All of these fragrances I have in manufacturers Travel Size. Important for flying.
Niki de Saint Phalle: Going to need a chypre. Niki dSP is so easy wear and fits most moods.
Neela Vermeire Creations Mohur: Can’t go anywhere without my lavish Hindi/French roses. I can’t wait to wear it in India.
Hermès Hermessence Iris Ukiyoé: Green with softly cardboard iris and a faintly indolic orange blossom. It has the Ellena greasy swirl and is a polar opposite to the smells of India.
DIOR Miss Dior vintage parfum: I have travelled with Miss Dior parfum a bit and it always goes down a treat. Also, I love its vintage purr.
Cacharel Scarlett: Yeah, I have a maybe 20ml travel of this radiant and irradiated white floral. It’s so OTT that I think it will be heavenly in India.
Guerlain Samsara vintage parfum: Come ON! Why wouldn’t I take this sandalwood/white floral sensation. It is flamboyant, head turning and utterly fabulous.
