Happy MLK Jr. Day to all you wonderful Posse folks! It is cold as all get-out here in my neck of the woods and I’m so happy that my high school senior has the holiday off and won’t have to brave the below-freezing temps. When it gets this chilly, I reach for my fave vanilla scents, the ultimate in warming and comfort.
In the past day or so (and probably tomorrow as well), I’ve been rotating Indult Tihota (prolly one of my top 3 vanilla fragrances), Le Labo Vanille 44 (gotta love that incense vibe), Guerlain’s Spiriteuse Double Vanille, Tom Ford’s Vanilla Fatale and Montale Vanille Absolu. Speaking of the Montale, it’s the closest I’ve come to duplicating Jane Booke’s Taken, which I have found serious love for, but can’t seem to find samples of, and my teensy vial is getting so loooow. Budgetary concerns prevent me from springing for a full bottle, but a decant or another sample or two of this would make my day. Anyone seen this anywhere? Thanks! Some other warm and cozy loves also will find their way onto my skin througout the week, but the heavy-duty vanilla babies are the main players right now.
What about you? Are you a vanilla lover? Or does too much sweetness give you a toothache/headache? If you’re in the midst of winter temps, how are you keeping warm, scent-wise? Or staying cool, if your abode is in the Southern Hemisphere?
Hope everyone has a great week!!
