Hooray! We are now officially “un-slabbed” and “de-podded” and all our furniture is now back in our freshly painted, nice, clean house (at least until the toys, books, etc., start “multiplying” in the den — ha!). And our very large yard ornament has been hauled away, so we have our driveway back, too. Double hooray!
After a chaotic and very stressful day or two last week while everything was being moved back in, this weekend I decided to treat myself to wearing the most expensive comforting scent I own, cost be darned. So what did I pull out? It was too chilly and fall-like for Le Labo’s Tubereuse 40, so I snagged my small decant of their Vanille 44 and spritzed with abandon. Its lush vanilla and incense soothed my stressed body and mind, and its rich aura made me feel pampered and self-satisfied as I kicked back in my cozy recliner with my favorite cup of tea (naturally) and simply enjoyed doing nothing for an hour or two.
What’s your favorite “I deserve a treat” scent? What do you wear to reward yourself for a job well done?
