Perfumed Heart Failure?

What the hell are you people thinking? I read March’s post from yesterday about doing one scent for ONE??? TWO??? WEEKS!! and fell to the floor, rolled around a bit, twitched, took a few deep breaths, swigged a glass of red wine, and now I’m back here to try and calmly (!) discuss this torture you all are putting yourselves through.  I must have been dozing or working last week and missed the beginning stages of this madness. For me to be calling a bunch of perfume nuts, well, nuts is something I thought I’d never do.

Oh, first, we have some winners of the drawing from last week for the gardenia and lily room scent oil:  Anthony and Sharyl.  Click on the Contact us on the left, remind me what you won and send me your address.

Would you wear the same underwear for a week, even if you rinsed it out every night?  Wear the same shirt?  Shoes?  Same bottle of red or white wine for a lifetime?  Even my signature is not my signature anymore. Over the years, it has changed into something that doesn’t even resemble the  one-time signature that included crossing the two T’s with a heart over them, or the swooping Y up and around to cross the Ts. Now it’s a scribble.  I just don’t and cannot buy this signature scent thingie.  It’s like wearing your hair in a shoulder-length flip from age 14 in 1965 to the viewing at your funeral.

Maybe Diorling of the vintage variety might keep me interested enough to wear it for a few days in a row.  Maybe some vanilla comfort thing, like the Le Labo Vanille or Doblis or a Guerlain… ohnononononono, you almost sucked me in.  You all are infectious!

I’ve gone into the perfume room and run my fingers lovingly over all of my bottles, cooed some words of comfort at the little darlings – well, yes, I guess you can anthropomorphize your perfumes and call other people crazy in the same post.

Now, the Exofficio “17 countries, 6 weeks, one pair of underwear” underwear works for me because I’ve only got two weeks, one country, and I did get four pair of them just because I’m a little creeped out about washing one night, wearing the second pair if I just took two pair.  But this is not perfume!!!

I’m taking several samples of perfume with me – mostly incenses because I want them for the monastery visits.  A couple of lighter gourmands for comfort of home. Dzing sample, absolutely, because, well, there are elephants!  Don’t bother trying to connect those two dots, except through the circus thing.

Well, next Monday, I will be up early or late the night before to see how this went for you guys.  I’m sitting this one out and not playing.  It’s like those games of touch football my brothers would talk me into, which always turned into tackle football when they saw I was getting tired of the ever-increasing in vigor shoves to get my flag.  Just like that, this signature scent thing will end in tears.  Salty tears, like Sel de Vetiver.

Who’s with me on this?  I think to keep the fragrant world in balance from all these hard-core perfumistas hanging up their sampling spurs for a week, we all need to double up our effort to sniff new things or just change out fragrances. So I vow to put on at least 2 fragrances a day (just to smell) and sample like a little drunken Scent Addict.

  • weegee says:

    [-( Nope, can’t do it! As a Gemini I claim the right to change fragrance at LEAST twice a day and have done so for over 40 years. My signature scent is “She always smells wonderful!”

    Still, I’m curious to know how this experiment goes for those bold enough to proceed.

  • donanicola says:

    Bit late sorry! Long term perfume monogamy is beyond me physically, mentally and emotionally. But I am on day 3 of this 7 day challenge and feel none the worse for it. I have chosen Bulgari Black and so far we’ve got along just fine. Better than fine actually. On the other hand my decant of Boxeuses hasn’t turned up yet. If it arrives before the week is up it could prove too strong a temptation, we’ll see. I’m not going to beat myself up about it if I falter though.

  • minette says:

    whilst i commend march and her single-scented march toward i don’t know what, i just laughed and shook my head “no” when i read about it. sorry, but i’m not going monastic on scent at this time of year when there are so many rich options. especially since we FINALLY got a cool front that appears to want to stick around for more than one day. today’s scent adventure is my beloved lumiere noire.

    you have an enviable trip ahead of you – enjoy it in good health!

  • AnnieA says:

    While I think it would be an interesting psychological experiment, instead I am doing the “wear a different perfume every day” week. (So far it’s been Rien, Anais Anais, and Eau Rare Matale.) Maybe I will do Buy Nothing Day in November instead…

    • Patty says:

      I still need to go back and retry that Don’t Buy anything Frivolous thing for a week. After failing at that so badly, I can’t even imagine being faithful to a perfume for a week

  • Tamara*J says:

    Hey girl hey! Hi Tammy :)

    It’s crazy how we feel so adamant that it’s limiting to refrain to one scent for week but IT IS! hahaha!
    Kinda like self-imposed torture. teehee ;)
    I’m with Tammy , props to all y’all for your strength!

  • tammy says:

    Hey, Tamara J, great to see you again!

    Firmly on Team Patty here.

    Despite the fact that I often DO wear the same fragrance for a week or better, there is no way I can limit myself. Life is for living, not for limiting oneself, though I admire all ya’ll who can be so austere.

    • Patty says:

      don’t tell them, but I admire them too. I don’t know if I won’t or can’t and don’t really care.

  • Tamara*J says:

    I know of what you speak. I didn’t even want to try that damn challenge, it was too exhausting to try and figure out what to wear plus I’m such a hussy , I could never try to be faithful to any of my beloved HG for a certain amount of time..
    (I have a precious few <3 ) And I wouldn't want to risk my adoration of them AND the ones I don't love like that , I would be bored to ever-loving tears! I'm wearing Lyric right now, I think I'm falling for it's spell…..(sniff, huff, snort) yup I am.
    It took me awhile, I was unaffected for Amouage for so long.
    But I already fell for Memoir too. Damn. ;)

    • Ann N. says:

      Hi Tamara J, I’m with you on the Amouage Memoir. It’s the first Amouage that played nice with me. I have already fallen under her sweet, dark spell and am plotting how to somehow afford her. Alas, until I find a job, samples will have to do.

      • Tamara*J says:

        Ann N! I KNOW!!!! Why this one I wonder? It just is wonderful, nothing earth-shaking, just lovely. I want my own black bottle so bad. Something about owning at least one Amouage to love and wear till my dying days is driving me crazy. :D ;)

    • Patty says:

      Lyric is the one that does it for me in the nonAttar Amouages. I’m assuming there’s some cardamom rolling around in it, something rich and addictive.

  • sweetlife says:

    Ha, ha, ha! Don’t you people coordinate? ;-)

    Actually, having said that I wouldn’t, I probably am. And randomly, with the the thing I had on yesterday. Which is quite a challenge, believe me. And which I will not reveal until seven days have passed.

    Now if I could just get rid of this sinus headache so that I could put on any perfume at all… (Remains of 7 day scent still linger from yesterday, though. So I think that counts.)

    • Patty says:

      Us coordinate? Heck no, I get surprised by every post that shows up. 🙂

      I had a sinus headache all last week, you have my sympathy. It’s retreated for now, and I’m beyond grateful.

  • Illdone says:

    Ha well, one perfume for a whole week.. I sort of wanted to ignore having read that but look what happens when you decide not to participate.
    I searched high and low for months to find a bottle of La Nuit EDP by Rabanne and finally got one last week.(100 ml, YES!) As I knew I was going to be on the road a lot and would be wanting to spray it on during the day I put it on the back seat of my car next to my new (wonderfull, black fur-trimmed) coat.
    As Autumn here is also quite undecided about being cold ,wet or hot, it started to rain and some really lousy driver in front of me decided to make an “emergency” stop for parking space. As a result a full box with metal appliances dropped of the back hatch of my car on the, you’ve guessed it,La nuit bottle.. Me, my car and my coat are reeking of la Nuit for the rest of the week, winter and perhaps even early spring. Honestly, I’m considering buying a new coat.
    A new bottle of La nuit might be unnecessary, I can always sniff my backseat if the urge arises.

    • karin says:

      Oh no! Sending condolences!

    • Patty says:

      Ohmygravy. I’ve had that happen and just thrown out the clothing. A coat is harder, yikes!!!

    • Mals86 says:

      Oh, how terrible – hope you can replace it.

      Of course, I might have had to have been sedated had I broken La Nuit in MY vehicle. Whoa. That stuff is not shy.

      • Musette says:

        I once spilled Aromatics Elixir on the carpet and had to LEAVE THE HOUSE whilst El O shampooed the carpet – then (and I am NOT joking) I had to come in and shampoo it again!

        And even then I said many [-o< of thanks that 1) it was June (open windows) and 2) we had a second bedroom. Took a week for that stuff to clear out. A week! xo >-)

  • OperaFan says:

    This reminds me of the Seinfeld episode where they all challenged eachother to refrain from performing a certain (self-indulgence) activity and see who could last the longest. Haven’t seen it for a very long time, but I believe they all succombed in less than a week…
    I knew I would never be able to last a week (faithful to a single scent, that is), which is why I’m not in this challenge. Always in my handbag is a separate little zip purse of a handful of sample vials and mini sprayers with enough assortment to suit any mood/occassion. I just can’t imagine having “just one.” Call me weak.:”>

  • Teri says:

    So far, so good here. This is Day 3 of Molinard de Molinard and I’m not bored. Yet. Tempted? Of course! But this is a really interesting scent and new to me, which I think is why I’m staying strong. Yesterday was cold and rainy, today is cool and sunny, and it’s a different scent today than yesterday. I can do this. I think. I am woman, hear me meow. I keep telling myself, I gave up caffeine and wine for 9 months of pregnancy, I give up chocolate every spring for Lent, and I’ve all but given up red meat forever. If I can do those things, I can do this.

    • Patty says:

      Of course you can do it! It’s just for me to ask why. 🙂

      • Teri says:

        The terrible legacy of growing up as the only girl in my neighborhood. Years of “you can’t do THAT, you’re just a girl”. And my unvarying reply “oh yeah?? Who says I can’t? You just watch me.”

        To this day, I can’t walk away from a dare. lol

        • Teri says:

          Oh I almost forgot. I’m totally down for the 2-samples per day week, too. I just ordered 14 samples of things I hadn’t tried.

          It’ll soothe my psyche after the solifume week.

  • Geordan1244 says:

    I’m with Patty. It doesn’t help that I started the week with SDV, and am traveling for four days and only have a fb of it, and am not willing to travel with a fb. And I know I could have started with something I have a decant of, but I know I would get bored/bored/bored. So, I’m taking MR, Black Tourmaline, and some samples I’d like to take a second go at…

  • Musette says:

    What Mals Said. It’s Science, perfumistas – SCIENCE! What will you find out about that scent in those 7 days? I gotta tell you, Cuir de Lancome revealed some incredible facets to me during our 4 days together. Just when I thought :-< , as I was driving down the highway, I would open the window and the breeze would stir up the juice on my poitrine, bringing Phase 327 or whatever - and it really was intriguing. Diorella went through a 15 hr day (with an extra time-zone) yesterday and revealed some interesting facets, which I will relate when we reconvene Monday. And hey! <:-p !!! I FOUND MY WALLETINI!!! YAY! somebody :-w dropped an inbox full of papers on 3/4 of it and you know how itiz.....because I was desperately looking for it I couldn't find it! Cards are being reissued so that's no biggie (only two) but all that other crap would've just b-( to replace! Thanks, Diorella! xoxo >-)

    • Mals86 says:

      “Somebody”? I take it that you have made your displeasure known…

      Diorella would probably knife me in the back – glad she’s behaving herself for you.

      • Musette says:

        To be honest, that ‘somebody’ could well have been me! 😮 I’d just gotten back from the WPC (oh, Mals….! go onto my FB page and check out the Supreme Halter. I nearly fainted, he’s so gorgeous! Thank Floyd I’m broke, otherwise…..:-?

        Also we only have 1/3 acre, which is just about enough space for him to take a dump, so we’re still Percheron-free at this location. For now.

        anyhoodle, I was exhausted, fighting asthma attack and prepping for a 5:45am leave the next day to IN – I’m surprised I didn’t throw it out with the trash! =))

        I am having a very interesting conversation with La Diorella! Can’t wait to share it with you guys at Monday’s recap!

        xoxoxo >-)

    • Ann N. says:

      Yay to Cuir, Diorella and to finding your wallet!!

    • Patty says:

      Yeah to the wallet find! If it was Diorling, she’d hide your damned wallet and then deny even knowing what a wallet was.

  • Meliscents says:

    Yea, the single scent thing just isn’t going to happen. I started off with YSL Paris and thought I could do that for a whole week, but by the end of the day I was ready for something else.
    I’m like so many of you in that, if I pick something I really like, will I hate it by the end of the week?
    I think I have a touch of A.D.D. because my attention span for the same thing day after day is seriously lacking. Heck, I’m not even good with left-overs!! I wish all of you the best of luck who are going to participate, but I just don’t think my sanity would last through a week of the same fragrance.

    • Patty says:

      I spritzed on the newly arrived Messe, to make sure it had plenty of mildew left in it. I forgot this thing sticks around for about 36 hours. So I’m getting a little taste of this challenge unwillingly.

      I have to try and scrub it off before my rolfing session.

  • Suzy Q says:

    When I first read March’s post last week I, too, thought “No way crazy lady!” But then, well, I like a challenge. In the interest of perfume science I’m in. It can’t be harder than quitting smoking, right? And it will be a whole lot more interesting. No. 5 Eau Premiere and I are becoming very friendly.

  • Lucy says:

    I’m on day 5 of Champs Elysees, and I’ve come close to chopping my arm off, but I’ll keep going for the sake of science.:((

  • Mals86 says:

    HEY. Challenging oneself to wearing only one scent for days at a time is just as adventurous (at this stage of the scented journey) as sampling six scents at a time. It’s not like we’re doing it for EVer, just a week, you know.

    I do love picking the right scent for the weather, my day, my mood, and I won’t be giving that up long-term. But I am enjoying the one-week experiment. It’s… scientific. Yeah, dat’s it -I’m Sacrificing for Science!

  • maggiecat says:

    I’m with you Patty, more out of necessity: I’m serving on the team of a religious retreat this weekend for three days and will be sharing a dorm and working closely with others. I was all set to go with Tom Ford’s Jasmine Musk for the week, but realized that I might need to be choose discreet, friendly scents for the cirucmstances. I am choosing one note -vanilla – and today am sampling Diptyque’s Eau Duelle. I do try to sometimes wear one scent for several days, to see how it works for me and if it’s FB worthy, but I have too much fun playing….I’ve been known to take more scents than changes of underwear on vacations!

    • Ann N. says:

      Hi Maggiecat, I’m glad you mentioned Eau Duelle. How are you liking it so far? I am growing rather fond of it. It’s not going to blow your skirt up or anything but it’s quite nice. With the bit of citrus I get with it on my skin, it kind of reminds me of Creed’s uber-pricey Sublime Vanille, but it sure lasts longer. Enjoy!

    • Patty says:

      I really love Eau Duelle. I’m contemplating a decant or bottle. It’s quiet, soft, easy to wear, little comfort. No fireworks, just a well-made perfume that makes you feel pretty

  • Style Spy says:

    The idea of it almost gave me hives. I truly felt anxious contemplating it. That being said, I must confess that my bottle of Trezieme Heure arrived on Saturday and I wore it three days in a row. But that’s different.

    • Patty says:

      That IS different. Choosing the same scent for days or weeks – which I’ve done – voluntarily because I’m loving it so much is fun. But it’s like playing a song you love 100 times. time 101 just grates on your nerves.

  • March says:


    C’mon, P, come over to the Dark Side. One perfume a week. You gotcher self-discipline, right? Hey, I didn’t demand everyone go commando for a week, did I? >:)

    • Masha says:

      Wearing one perfume for a week would be harder for me than kicking caffeine. That one nearly sent me to the hospital….

    • Patty says:

      No way, Mistress March. 🙂 I could discipline myself to do it, but I”d wind up wearing no perfume for the last six days in rebellion.

      Commando for a week is doable.

      • karin says:

        Yes, that’s my problem. I’m a rebel. Silly, I know. But proud of it. Ha!

      • maidenbliss says:

        I’m leaving tomorrow for Philly for a few days and If I get rambunctious and restless I might catch a train to NY. No way am I wearing anything for a week. Except Melaleuca.The best dry skin cream I’ve ever bought. It’s my only concern at the moment. Except to smell good. Really good.

    • hongkongmom says:

      okay good…coming back to my sticking to the challenge;)

  • maidenbliss says:

    I commented last week that I’m weak. Knew I wouldn’t stick to this. Nice to know I’m not the only one. I’ve worn vintage Shalimar for several days just because I’ve been out of town and it
    was in my purse, but after those several days I don’t want to wear it again for at least a few months.
    It lost its luster for me after repeatedly dabbing it on.

    • Patty says:

      I couldn’t do vintage/current/mid-life Shalimar for more than an hour without being prepared to pass out.

      Too much of a good thing.

    • hongkongmom says:

      oh man…thats what i chose…i could continue wearing it …and ignoring it

  • pam says:

    Patty, I’m with you. As I said in my comment yesterday, I spent YEARS wearing only one perfume at a time. When the bottle went dry, I bought another. Now I have a collection and want to enjoy to the max!

    In fact, this whole challenge is making me spray on MORE perfumes. Yesterday I held it to 3 different ones, but just barely. When I travel, I take only one scent with me. That’s the time I use only one scent for several days. (Unless I hit a shop on my travels.)

    • Patty says:

      Me too! I had the one bottle for years, all I could afford, used sparingly. I knew I’d moved up in the world when I had two and could change them out. It was like entering that forbidden land with no way back.

      So far I’m up to two perfumes, and I need to change again.

  • kathleen says:

    I started to do it. Then thought to myself, what fun is this? Life is short, and there are so many ‘fumes out there to sniff. So, no, I will not be participating.

    • Patty says:

      Now I’m starting to feel guilty. I really am going to be interested in the results next week. I just know I can’t/won’t do it personally

      • kathleen says:

        Guilt is a waste of energy

        • Mals86 says:

          True! And there’s no point in doing something that you a) don’t have to do and b) won’t enjoy. Also good to know your limitations – me, I don’t back my minivan into parking spaces, because I KNOW what will happen. In fact, I avoid driving backwards whenever possible, because…

          …well, I’ll just let you figure it out.

        • hongkongmom says:

          definately. either change what u need to, or get rid of it!

  • karin says:

    Well, I feel a bit of guilt, but am so glad you said this, Patty!!! I’ve secretly decided NOT to do this crazy scent challenge (sorry, March!). Why have I invested all this time and energy into creating a collection if I’m going to throw it all out the window and submit to ONE? Choosing which perfume to wear each day is one of life’s little joys. Nope. I ain’t giving it up. But I feel like an addict or something saying this, as if I have no willpower or control! As if this challenge has disheartened me. So, I chose to ignore it…until Patty had the guts to defect!!! Thank you, Patty.

    • Mals86 says:

      It is a joy to choose!

      Just because some of us are giving up that particular pleasure for a brief time… it’s for SCIENCE!… doesn’t mean we all should. If the idea is depressing, it’s not for you, and there’s no shame in that. We’ll come back afterward and talk your ears off anyway.

      I’m already plotting what I’m going to wear next week. :)

    • Patty says:

      I’m here to lead an army of deserting women into the land of milk and perfume.

      I do understand doing it as an experiment, really, I just know I have no patience for wearing the same scent for seven days and not being able to cheat at nighttime when I crawl in bed or when I shower after yoga.

    • Madea says:

      Your comment brought me to mind of ‘Dangerous Liasons’, where Glenn Close says the same thing of her lovers. It’s one of my all time favorite movies.

      I just pictured a woman staring at a bottle of Mitsuoko. ‘I would thank you to adopt a less marital tone’ :d;)

  • Fiordiligi says:

    Patty, I’m on Day Six of Ode a la Vanille and I’m boooooored. Sorry, yes I am. But after tomorrow – freedom! Except I’m travelling to the US next week and then have to decide what to take with me (though there are at least 2 purchases awaiting me there).

    Oh, I wish you hadn’t made the underwear analogy – eeek! I always take about treble the amount I could possibly need.

    • Masha says:

      Once, I was in charge of packing for a month-long trip to a “difficult” country, and I forgot to pack extra undies for hubby! It’s been over 10 years, and he still brings that one up!!

      • sunnlitt says:

        Well, I bet that he packs his OWN clothes now, and doesn’t expect someone else to do it for him!!

        Training husbands takes time, and ingenuity, but it can be done!!

    • Patty says:

      Boredom, that’s what scares me. I have to deal with it in too much of my life, which is normal for everyone. The places where I love variety – perfume, cosmetics, clothes (even though I’m basic black so much of the time, i have a lot of different things! plum-black, red-black, jade-black, blue-black, brown-black) are sacrosanct for fuffling with.

      Oh, whatcha getting?

      • hongkongmom says:

        u r sooo right…if i am not mistaken u have what i have..
        every shade of every colour…in varnish and eye shadow…its all part have having a really wonderful condition of flight of ideas hyperactive brain…

  • howard jarvis says:

    Ladies, ladies ,ladies, surely in this day and age a perfume is about the mood you are in for the time/event at hand. While many of our customers have their favourites, everybody love the flexibility of many scents at hand. It maybe the choice of the day or even a change for the evening etc.etc. I am not sure, but what do you think ? Cheers, Howard Jarvis, Perfumer,

  • Kim says:

    I think we should try both!! Let’s go with March’s plan this week – stick with one only for the whole week, see what that is like. I think it is like when you find a basic black T that works perfectly and you buy 5 of them and wear them through the week – a basic that see’s you through it all when you are too busy/swamped to change up your wardrobe.

    I am going with Chanel 31 Rue Cambon – to be discussed next week and I’m already learning a lot about my perfume usage and loves

    Then, let’s play! Try a week where we have to do at least 2 samples a day – see what it is like to change it up constantly. All in?

  • hongkongmom says:

    Aha…a strong pull to break away on day two!!!! Perfumista competition! Will it be March, Will it be Patty?, March, Patty. I have absolutely no self control in perfume…I NEED to prove to myself that I can do this…,,Day 3: I will stick with march and Shalimar. Poor Shalimar got a fleeting, flippant, nasty thought today.

  • Winifreida says:

    O ye she devil – one can live with long term choices like -men-; say… its hard but heck, well, aahrm,…
    I’ve certainly had a small glitch in the challenge, my bottle of Messe de Minuet ordered form the Gherman ebay and hopelessly enabled by a sample of the old stuff from TPC, backed up by decants, then shock horror, a FB that’s gorgeous but Not The Same ole mouldy crypty thangy…anyhooo arrived today but I figure that a small spray on the back of the hand is not the same as long term commitment like poitroine after shower…anyway I’ve made up for it by washing off and going for the long term spray…
    Hey do you think Bertrand really went to Bhutan to get the inspiration for one of my top 20 Dzongha…

    • Patty says:

      i’ve been married three times, if that says anything about me living with a man as a long-term choice. 🙂

      Eek, I just got mine from the German eBay person(s). Whew, mildew! I’m so happy. 🙂

      • Musette says:

        You are both slightly insane! 😉

        I wish I could share your exchange with a non-perfume person…but how to explain it??? =))

        xoxoxo >-)

  • Masha says:

    Wow, only 2 a day? You’re such a minimalist, Patty. There was no way I could do the scent challenge. I don’t have that sort of austere discipline. But it will be fun to hear from those who do! I wonder how many will come to love their chosen perfume in whole new ways, and how many will never want to smell it again?? Someone should write up the results for a psychology journal.

    • Patty says:

      Regular spray all over fragrances. That doesn’t include the many samples that I put on through the day.

      I will be interested to see how many can’t bear to wear their chosen beloved for at least the next six months after this.

  • dianawr says:

    I’m with you! MORE SAMPLES!

  • tmp00 says:

    Sorry Bubbellah, I’m being crazy and joining March. It is sort of like wearing the same pair of manties, except you launder them every night.

    • Patty says:

      No trips to Scent Bar this week? I just can’t imagine doing it, my mind is in meltdown contemplating.

      • Tom says:

        I can smell stuff, I just cant wear it. Or is that hedging?

        • Musette says:

          my two cents worth? I don’t think it’s hedging – were you a ‘sig scent’ kinda guy, you would still ‘smell’ stuff!that’s why God made scent strips! Lord knows I had to ‘smell’ somebody’s Euphoria? Eternity? Yes! Eternity. In all its Eterniteeeeeey this morning. I might as well have been wearing it, it was so strong.

          xo >-)

  • violetnoir says:

    Hey, you’re preaching to the choir, sister! I agree with you wholeheartedly.

    But, what the hey. Folks like us are constantly sampling and trying new things. I figure, why not try something new…at least for us?

    I have to admit, I have had a heck of time figuring out which fragrance I could live with for one whole week. Has she switched it to two weeks? No, I absolutely can’t do that. Anyway, where was I? Oh yeah, picking a fragrance to wear for one whole week.

    Well, the weather has been so variable, cool and rainy, now getting hot again, the task of just picking one fragrance has felt like some serious mental and emotional torture. I mean, I have laid in the bed thinking about which fragrance I could live with for one week, and I had to take into account the fact that the week may start out warm, get hot, and then cool off again.

    I settled on AG Le Jasmin.

    I don’t think I’ll make it, Patty, but I will try!

    Keep swiggin’ the wine, ’cause I’ll need to join you just to get through the entire week, lol!

      OH!!!! I LOVE LE JASMIN, WHERE IS MY TEENY BOTTLE?!?! Remember those cute little AG bottles? Like the big ones only 10ml or something?

      Let’s show Patty we can do it! Be strong, woman!

      Oh, dear. I couldn’t even get past that what to pick part without melting down. I’m pretty sure by day 3, I’d hate whatever beautiful thing I picked that I used to love. Weird, I can wear some things days in a row because it’s new and I love it or I’m just fascinated by it, but turn that into a have-to, and I’d rather wear bear oil.

      Okay, good luck, sweetie!
