So. We are almost at summer. Those of you who have been around for a while know what happens. I grab my Hermessence Osmanthe Yunnan, Rose Ikebana, a couple of other lighter tea’ish scents from Bvlgari, maybe an occasional white floral or incense, plus Malle’s En Passant and avoid perfume for the rest of the summer.
I don’t know why this is. Now it feels like it is more about being outside and in the pool so much or doing yardwork – sweat and perfume are kinda ick. Chlorine and perfume are really ick.
It feels like it is more than that – I love the smells of summer outside so much more than anything else – fresh cut grass, heavy sunlight on skin, roses and lillies and my elderberry blossoms. It’s like everything else pales.
I don’t think I’m entirely alone here. I do have a couple of things coming that I want to test before heat gets here and I’m on here weekly talking about everything else but perfume, and I do have a giveaway from two weeks ago I need to draw for, will do that next week. So what is your fave perfume wearing season and also your least fave? Poll below! And tell us why in comments!
