Welp! Last week was CRAZY week! Awash in work, I kept myself sane with a few of Musette’s Musings. Walk with me.
First. Deon Cole. Who knew? I don’t watch much TV so didn’t know he existed. He O, Lordy! That man is FOINE! A young Denzel/Idris hybrid, funny(ish) in that New Comedian vein – I watched his Netflix special and smirked when he talked about his lust for older women (there’s almost nothing I can quote here, it’s so NSFW – heck, it’s NSF nearly everything! lol!) – I thought he was talking about women older than me because I Am NOT Old. But he said “ I can’t ‘f’ with you unless you got a ointment drawer“. Right before I started to snicker….I thought ‘hey, waitaminit! I got a ointment drawer!. In fact, I gotz TWO (bathroom and night stand). Vicks, Benadryl, Neosporin, you name it, I got it. COME ON, DEON! The drawer is FULL!
Just as well he didn’t – I don’t think I could survive that.
But! The whole ‘ointment’ thing? A lot of camphor there – and I’ve been using camphorated ointments to stave off dermatological disaster – Vicks is wonderful for settling down dermatitis. But what perfumes go with camphor? Well, obviously the camphorated tuberose of the gorgeous Carnal Flower – but what else is there to offset (or uplift) the Vickness? Well, the other tuberose, Uncle Serge’s Criminelle, supports that camphor note beautifully (I love how that bracing, resinous note cuts the butteryness of tuberose, taking it out of the marzipan territory where Fracas resides). I went on Fragrantica to see what other, non-tubey scents there are – there are quite a few but most of them I’ve never smelled. One I was especially drawn to: Bruno Fazzolari’s Cadavre Exquis. The tale is fascinating but that is for another post.
OMG! The Evil Known as WordPress just ate the rest of this post! Okay, here’s the skinny: I I’m going to have The Girl pull a commenter for some Messy Armoire stuff (and I’m only ONE winner behind, so you can expect to get your haul sooner rather than later!). Here’s why I can’t rewrite this post: I just had QuickBooks 2020 installed and have to do a tutorial – my guts are in a knot just thinking about it! But needs must and all that.
Kathleen is the winner from the Ebola post! gmail your evilauntieanita, remind me which post (and give me your deets) and I’ll get some fun out to you!!!
