Holiday, No Post

Hey, everyone (anyone?)   I’m enjoying the US holiday weekend and won’t be posting today.  Didn’t want you to think I died in some terrible perfume accident, finally done in by a critical oakmoss sensitivity or from applying John Galliano room spray directly to my skin.

The kids are underfoot, the pool opened Saturday for the summer, and I spent last night with a couple of girlfriends, polishing off a pitcher of margaritas we accidentally ordered (oooooops.)    I’m planning on spending Monday at the pool again, lurking like the Bride of Dracula in my customary shady spot while I read trashy magazines and keep half an eye on the twins, then off to a barbeque.  Have a nice day.  Go forth and smell good.

    The weather is gorgeous here-I live in SoCal, a 10 min drive from the beach..BUT..I’ve had to work most of the weekend..*sigh*..
    The picture you paint sounds/looks great!!

  • Divalano says:

    By the pool in the shade with trashy mags sounds so good I almost whimpered. signed …. worked all weekend.

  • Sweet Sue says:

    Lanvin’s “My Sin” gave me a terrible rash once.
    When someone says a perfume smells like armpit, doensn’t that usually means it has a heavy cumin accord?
    Good holiday all.

    • Musette says:

      yes, which is what makes this so weird. I detect no cumin in Odalisque – and I’d just taken a shower not 10 minutes before….


      well, I’m going to deodorize up the ol’ pits today and try it again. Ya nebber know…


  • You’re having good weather I bet which is always a good thing so hope you have lots of fun at the pool and at that barbeque! (I am kicking myself on not taking the fist sea-dip yesterday, when rocks were melting on the shore. Why oh why didn’t I? Ah, there’s always next weekend)
    BTW, Hope Musette doesn’t mind I linked her interesting blind test below. It was too good to let it go! *evil grin*

    AAACK, the oakmoss! I myself was doomed to a painful demise by the dreaded bergamot. If only IFRA had come along sooner….hehehe
    Have a great Memorial Day.

      Hey, you know the weird thing that happened? Louise tried on my Caron Reglisse and it gave her a total rash. Which is really unusual, I wonder what’s in there…

      • Masha says:

        That’s weird! Poor thing, maybe it’s the ginger, they use a lot of fresh ginger in that. If she rubs some raw ginger on her wrist and gets a rash, then she’ll know! (Anything in the name of science….)

        • Louise says:

          I’ll have to be a laboratory rat for a bit longer on this…I can wear ginger scents easily and happily, and eat candied ginger by the bucket. I’m more inclined to think it was some nasty synthetic thing, but admit…I. know. nothing 😉

  • violetnoir says:

    Sounds like you’ve got the perfect plan for a fragrant and fun-filled holiday weekend, March!


    • March says:

      And hugs back. Do you think anyone else wears perfume to the pool? And yeah, I don’t care about the bees.

      • Musette says:

        I wear perfume all the time whilst gardening and/or pooling (not much pooling around here, alas). Bees are my pals so they don’t bother me. Wasps….

        …..hey, have a great day. I’m going to test-drive Odalisque again (El O says it smells like armpit, which is bizarre), do some quick (as in Really Quick – no martyring today) paperwork, then it’s mystery novel time!

    Pool on, babe, and work that bikini 😉
