BTW, someone asked how to tell who writes what posts just so they can have context, and we do have the little icons at the bottom, but I think it may be much easier to put the name at the top just for ease of knowing who is writing before you start reading.
Today I’m going to get peaches fresh from the orchard. There’s only one month each year you can get them, and this is the month, and I can’ t begin to tell you how my stomach is flipping around in joy and my tastebuds are already salivating at a pace it’s difficult to keep up with. We have a recipe that’s been passed down for ages in my family for Honey Cream Peach Pie. I have no idea where it originally came from. Could have been Ladies Home Journal for all I know, but we have been making it faithfully every year with Colorado fresh peaches for about 100 years. I’ll be making mine this weekend – like 3 pies worth. Wearing Mitsouko, I think.
The Different Company de Bachmakov, released in July 2010, was created by Celine Ellena. Notes of Cedar, coriander leaf, bergamot, white freesia, shiso leaves, nutmeg. I could bathe in this. The Iunx Blanche on one side of me and this on the other, and would I really ever need anything else? de Bachmakov is crisp, refreshing, slightly woody, warmed with nutmeg like the sun barely hitting an iceberg – never melting it, just making it feel cozy as its time on your skin lengthens. The Freesia in the list of notes was scary, I was thinking this was give it a mortal overdose of sweet, but nope. There is something really remotely candied that the freesia brings, but I can’t pin it down any more than that. Not sweet, just another angle in that reflects instead of absorbs.
March needs to wear this while reading her Scandinavian novels.
Really gorgeous and elegantly easy to wear all day and night. I had a little 2.5 ml spray of it, and I already spritzed through most of it, but I smell great doing it. Robin’s review is Here, and Octavian’s review is here. I think there is a close to uninanimous love vibe going ’round on this.
Now for my pie. Mmmmmm, pieeeee. But I have an open mind if anyone wants to share their peach pie recipe or any other recipes for peaches.
