As I was re-organizing, shuffling, grazing — all right, mostly poking — through some of my favorite samples and deciding which ones I needed a bit more of, I floated into a little fragrant fantasy. What if Santa were to slip a surprise bottle of something wonderful, price no object, under my tree. What would I choose?
Hmmm … tough choice, dear Santa. I would be seriously torn between so many wonderful scents. But after much thought, I think it would come down to Le Labo Vanille 44 (one of those pricey city exclusives), Clive Christian C for Women or Guerlain Encens Mythique. And hey, why not all three while we’re at it? It’s our fantasy, right?
And since it is a fantasy, I could ask Santa for a beloved discontinued scent. But for the life of me, I couldn’t think of any right off the bat. I’m sure one or two will float to the top later, especially after reading some of your suggestions.
I have been in a bit of a fragrance lull/slump lately but ambling through the samples has reinvigorated my sniffer and enjoyment of spritzing somewhat. I used to have this burning desire to smell everything new that came out from the major players, but that fever died down some time ago. But I haven’t given up on exploring entirely and may return to it one of these days.
Anyhoo, what about you? What would you pick if Santa were to deliver? Would it be a long-lost vintage scent or that uber-expensive fragrance that you’ve always longed for a bottle of, but the wallet/budget just would not stretch far enough? Or perhaps a fun sampler from Surrender to Chance, just to play around with and experiment?
Have a great week, folks, and take care out there in the holiday madness!!
