I am not writing, and not even attempting to write for a week now and I miss it – and I don’t miss it. Clearly I haven’t made up my mind yet…
I definitely miss you, my dear readers!
My boys have been sick, so the summer fun has a bit of a dampener on it for now, but we try to entertain ourselves at home. I’ve been a lucky mother so far, none of my kids have been seriously sick in their lives, and the past week has been the first time my sons have had a high fever for more than a day. But they are slowly on the mend…
My perfumed life is surprisingly active, despite the blogging hiatus (or maybe because of it?) I’m rediscovering my collection, weeding out a bit, finding treasures I didn’t know I had. For example, I tried my old bottle of Jil Sunder Sun again and it is just as lovely as I remember it, bringing me right back to the summer of my high school graduation oh so long ago…
I’m also wearing Ramon Monegal Cotton Musk (which was renamed, it was launched under the name White Musk) a very untypical choice for me, but I find myself enjoying the very clean, almost laundry-style musk on a bed of roses and gardenia very appealing in the heat. I’m also guilty of buying not one but two new bottles of perfume for the summer that I intend to take on vacation to Italy when we go in August:
Nuxe Prodigieuse Le Parfum, an EdP modeled on the famous Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse, a bargain of a scent that is beachy and carefree. The second one is Nicolai Juste Un Rêve, I finally decided on my ideal lush coconut white floral. Montale Tiaré Intense was in the running for the longest time (I would have bought it years ago if it weren’t for the bottle, that is how shallow I am!), but it was overtaken by Juste un Rêve at the last minute. It seems lesh brash, more refined and sopisticated to me, than the louder, more uncouth Intense Tiaré.
As for the above mentioned shallowness… the new Nicolai bottles are really okay.
How are you doing? How is the weather in your part of the world? What perfume are you crazy about these days? Are you working, on vacation?
I’d love to hear from you!
