Hey Posse, You may know that Jin and I have been on a holiday the last week or so with our mate Martin and a slew of friends from my childhood. It was a magnificent adventure and the whole story of the Indian Pacific Train trip and our visit to the WA Pinnacles will be up next week on Undina’s Looking Glass. Today I anted to share our Margaret River Wineries tour with you all and talk a bit about my holiday fragrance.
Margaret River Wineries WA Australia
We set out bright and early. This picture has most of the crew. From left Mum Chaloner, Fiona & Andy, Lola, Eve, Jin and Martin. The Chaloner family were a second home in my teen years. Evie is basically my sister. We met in drama school and have been firm friends ever since. We’ve lived together in Sydney and a short while in London, been through thick and thin of all sorts.
Here is the Vasse Felix winery. It’s the original winery in Margaret River WA and beautifully presented. The adults had a tasting and we bought a couple of cases that are being sent back home as I write.
Because we shopped and joined the club they gave us some freebees! As driver I was excluded from tasting and drinking but the rest of the adults had a glass and were plenty squiffy by the time we left. You can see Jin has his happy drunk smile on already.
We then went to a chocolate factory, had a fabulous fish & chip meal, did another less mainstream winery called Ashbrook and then hit a Gin distillery. Sadly, I stopped taking pics because we were having such a wonderful time I completely forgot. Also, it was like herding a bunch of demented piglets. A couple of times they had me laughing so hard my tummy hurt.
Caron Pour un Homme
I’ve spoken often of my love for Caron Pour un Homme and it hasn’t diminished. I have a cool travel twist bottle and a deodorant. As Jin and I were sharing a bag on this adventure we had to pack very light. So I decided only one perfume would get the gig.
You’ll notice my body wash is 360 Green by Perry Ellis. It’s a nice smelling shower refresh, cheap as chips and kept me clean. It’s also nice to use a stick deodorant as a change from my usual roll on.
Caron Pour un Homme is good because it smells wonderful without being overpowering. Lavender lollies or as someone recently described it Lavender Shalimar! Super light bulb moment.
I wore it all holiday and never got bored or miserable. Even when perfume shopping I didn’t spritz on skin (yes, more on that later).
Do you like to do the wineries or wear some lavender?
