The post is well-named since I’m traveling this morning! This is the beginning of our Costa Rica adventure. I’ll be uploading pictures to my Facebook profile during our Trip with a cute little iPhone app travel journal thingie.
While writing this, I’m still trying to finish packing, decide on things that reallly have to go with (computer?) or stay behind. Week-long trips are easier, but once you get past that 7-day mark, then you have to start making some more crucial decisions and leaving things behind that you really don’t want to.
But, listen, I know y’all don’t care about whether I take my computer or not (it is going with since I don’t have a post written for Thursday), but I know you do care about what perfume I’m taking with.
Picking perfume(s) to travel with is tricky. Pick the wrong thing? You’re stuck with it or perfumeless for your vacation. Since we’re going into warm, tropical weather, I need something light, but that smells a little tropical floral, but not too heavy. Obviously I’m not taking Kilian Pure Oud or one of the Amouage attars, though one of those likely will go with me to Paris when it is cold and you need to be bundled up in scent and comfort.
What I picked surprised me a little. Soivohle Violets and Rainwater. Soft and lilting with a beautiful earthy undertone that makes me pretty happy. And Ormonde Jayne Tiare. This could have been Sampaquita or Champaca, but it was Tiare because it just smells like I want my vacation to smell – little tropical, lush floral, but not verging on rotting plush, and clean, almost soapy.
Now, I’m trying to make this decision while smelling the leftover spray tan solution on me, but I think I’ve got it what’s going to work.
What I’m more interested in is what you guys take on vacations, and I assume it varies between warm weather and cold weather ones, or does it? Do you have one standby that you always take? I do always have a vial of Kilian Pure Oud in my purse. Don’t ask, I just feel better knowing it is always nearby. Do you take any perfumes with you at all, or do you take a vacation from fragrance?
I’ll miss you guys!
