This Sunday’s elaborate cooking endeavor has turned into a success, despite my doubtful (and not very helpful) attitude. The turducken was delicious and very well received. In addition to stuffing three birds into each other, the entire thing had to be gluten-free, which was an additional challenge, but it went well and astoundingly, almost everything was eaten, so no left-over sandwiches for us…
On a more fragrance-oriented note, at the moment I’m still suffering from acute perfume fidelity syndrome, which means I am sticking it out with my L’Ambre de Merveilles. Such a show of loyalty going on for almost four weeks now, is unprecedented and slightly worrisome. Does it mean I’m over perfume? Do I only want one perfume for the rest of my days? What would that mean for my collection?
I’m looking at my Guerlains, my MdO’s, my Chanels, my most precious juices and – watch out for perfume heresy!!! – I’m left cold. Day after day, I find myself turning away from my perfume closet and reaching for my bottle of L’Ambre with a sense of deep contentment and a little defiance.
What could it mean?
It could mean I have matured all of a sudden and without any apparent reason (yeah, sure). It could mean that I have found THE ONE and that is that. It could just be a phase (and God knows, of those I had many in my life). It could mean I’m a bit out of sorts still, physically and emotionally, for various reasons. It could mean I have gone off perfume forever. It could also mean absolutely nothing.
Time will tell. For now, my dear fragrant friends, I’m going to live vicariously through you.
What is your scent of the day today? Why did you choose it?
