Brrrr … baby, it’s (been) cold outside, especially if you live in parts of the U.S. and Canada. Old Man Winter has given many of us quite a workout in 2017 and so far into this new year. And I’m in the Deep South so haven’t had it nearly as bad re: snow and ice as some of you have. (Of course, you folks in the Southern Hemisphere have a different set of temperatures to deal with, so feel free to share with us.)
I am glorying in my warm and toasty comfort scents: Guerlain’s Encens Mythique and Cuir Beluga, Chanel’s Coromandel, the original Coco, and Le Labo Vanille 44, among others.
I’m holding my scented wrist up to my nose each day as I make a run for it between my car and my destination. And even in my fragrance-free office, a bit of scent lingering on a coat sleeve offers a nice bit of warming. Old Man Winter has me wondering if I shouldn’t invest in one of those ski-mask looking thingies (balaclava, sp?), although they do look a bit creepy. But my velour hats are getting quite the workout, along with my red scarves (to hide the lipstick stains, ha!) to wrap over my nose and mouth. A furnace went out in one section of our office right after Christmas and those convertible mittens came in mighty handy, I must say.
But getting back to fragrance: I really, really need to get organized one of these days and have all my cold-weather scents in one drawer or spot, and the warmer weather ones in another, so I can just go in, browse and dab or spritz to my heart’s desire according to the season. One of these days …
So if you’ve been in the deep freeze, what are you wearing to keep Old Man Winter at bay? I am excited because we have a day in the 50s forecast for later this week. Whoo-hoo — a heat wave!! And I’ll think twice about complaining this summer when the thermometer heads into the 90s (but alas, I can’t promise no gripes if it hits triple digits!).
