Do you see what I did there ^^? I’ll get my coat. I am taking a short break for a family holiday but when I come back I will be continuing in my mission to write 365 perfume reviews in a year. There are occasional days when life and complications prevent me from blogging, but I am a dogged blogger and shall endeavour to keep my word.
My main problem, and admittedly it is a First World problem, is what perfumes to take for a week? I am so used to browsing my dressing table and sample coffers in the morning that predicting my mood and penchants for the next seven days seems limiting. I know it’s going to be hot, so Yardley Lavender and my trusty Chanel Cristalle will be coming with me. I may be out in the evening, so something more resonant might be called for- Tauer Incense Rose, or even Balmain’s Jolie Madame.
If I overindulge (and I intend to) there is always soothing Eau de Cartier for whatever ails you. My seven year old likes Dana Tabu and my three year old likes Broccoli headed Cabotine. I’ll be at the coast, so maybe Miller Harris Fleur de Sel?
Of course, the reality is that I will probably spend a week smelling of Factor 30 and seaweed, but perfume is all about creating your own little dimension, so I will probably just empty the whole shelf into a suitcase.
We nearly had the wit and wisdom of LisaWordbird standing in during my sojourn, but the lucky woman is off to Rome if you please. She has promised to update us on her return with a guest blog.
Happy holidays, bon vacances and have a great vacation.
