Hi there Posse! Jin, Anna-Maria, Johnny and I are heading down to Tasmania for the weekend. It’s a cool temperature kinda holiday and we are hoping to meet up with some perfumista buddies at some point too. Staying in the second largest city Launceston and the Hotel Grand Chancellor. It’s one of those big comfortable hotels that were built in the 1980s with very spacious lobby, rooms with two queen size beds each and a huge breakfast buffet. I love it when Jin and I have the same room but separate beds. we can snuggle for a while and then I can skedaddle once he’s asleep.
Anyway, I thought I’d tell you about my plans for fragrance over the weekend.
Tasmania: Long Weekend Getaway with Friends
We have a VERY early morning flight. It’s the cheapest and I’m nothing if not frugal when it comes to flying. Especially wishing Australia. I’m not spending my hard earned dosh on a flight that lasts 4 hours or less. Yep, Cattle Class all the way.
Due to the fairly cramped quarters I am thinking to wear Eau des Merveilles by Hermès. It’s quiet and classt=y but under the radar enough that whoever sits next to me won’t gag.
Evenings will be chilly but the days can be quite warm so I’m bringing a mixed bag of decants.
Atelier des Ors Rouge Saray: There’s maybe two wears in this decant bottle,. It’s a warm, funky scent that works perfectly in the cold.
Diptyque Rose de Mai: Roses upon roses but with little else to distract. I’m thinking it will be a lovely scent to wear in the cool hills and mountains.
Diptyque L’Ombre dans l’eau: Considering how long this fragrance has been a part of the Diptyque collection it’s a bit of a weirdo. Fruit and greenery with ambergris.
Guerlain Mademoiselle: Fresh powdery marshmsllow citrus. Not a big scent but a beautiful wash for road tripping.
Le Labo Neroli 36: I’m bringing Neroli 36 so I can use it up. Soapy white floral. Pretty, but I don’t love it. If I can thunk this baby on holiday all the better.
Does that seem like a rounded mix for the cool of Tasmania?
What would you take?
