Hi there Posse! This season I’ve been keeping a cold at bay since it has teetered around the edges of my health. I’ve had a few days of coughs and runny noses. There were two full days of sick man lying under the covers and drinking gallons of scalding tea with honey & lemon but it doesn’t feel as if the cold has really hit. This week I’ve had some sinus trouble and a stuffy nose that has rendered me less able to smell, however have I coped? I’m wearing Montale!
Stuffy Nose. Wearing Montale
I know. So many people turn their nose up at the Montales but I really love a few and they are perfect for cutting through the white noise and nose fog of illness.
Today I’m in Red Vetiver. I’m not sure why it’s called that but the vetiver is crisp, wet and cool. Citrus gives it a sparkle and pepper later on dries it out and segues into the woodiness. Still overarching all is the grassy/oily/slightly smoky vetiver.
Last night for bed I gave myself some hefty blasts of Sandflowers. The first bottle I ever bought of Montale and nearly empty. Sand flowers is oily salt on my skin. I imagine it’s what the smell of that oil slick rainbow in seaside puddles would be if ever I could headspace it.
Tonight I’m thinking Sweet Oriental Dream, that almond/honey/vanilla bomb. It’s too sweet normally for me and can be headache inducing when I’m well. Somehow though when I’m feeling poorly it hits the spot. Warming and wrapping me in hyper sweet clouds.
I also have Dew Musk and I think that will get a wear tomorrow.
These are all from my bottles but Surrender To Chance has an excellent 6 x 1ml Sampler where you get to choose from a long list.
What do you wear when you’re a bit snuffly? Would you be caught Wearing Montale?
