That got me to thinking. It’s been hot and unusually muggy (for LA, that is) here in the hills of Beverly. A walk to the post office after a shower makes me want another shower. I’ve been spending far too much time sitting in a Jack in the Box in Westwood drinking unsweetened iced tea and sucking up their excellent air conditioning than I should perhaps publicly admit. (Yep, that’s my glamorous life. Jealous?)
I think that, although I love them, perhaps no other house I can think of has the number of fragrances that I would say “Oh HELL to the NO” as far as wearing in the heat. Oh there are individual scents, like Angel or Fracas that I think should be only worn in heavy AC (the latter) if at all (guess). But Uncle Serge seems to have more than most. MKK on a humid summer day would just be FAR TOO MUCH. Arabie? Perhaps too literally a souk. Rahat Loukoum? Death by cherry cordial. Datura Noir? It might actually kill you. Mind you, a lot of these I would wear, to work, lightly applied when I knew I’d be in the meat locker that was my office.
But not so much without that chilly Freon Friend..
So, here’s my question for you. Which ones are the scents you would never wear in the heat, if there are any? Which ones are the scents you would wish others would retire for the summer? Let’s dish..
