Lecturing today on 2nd wave Feminism. Decided to pick a fragrance launched on a specific date included in my lecture ...after searching the directory for a match, found one: 1000 (1972) - Jean Patou - launched the same year Gloria Steinham launched Ms Magazine
My eye IS improving Has started to cut down on the Cortison tablets,but still take them+the eye drops...But just to make sure everything will heal well the doctor convinced me to stay home for another week...And The Dragon sure does wonders on my mood
....1000 (1972) - Jean Patou - launched the same year Gloria Steinham launched Ms Magazine
So today my feminism will be laced with osmanthus
Oooooh Baby! Wear it in good health!! THE feminine frag for sure. (Reminds me of a divine diva friend of mine who said she never could understand why she should have to settle for equality when she'd had superiority all along!!)
To prove a point: I'm starting the day in CK Eternity Summer 2006 - a sample from the wonderfully generous KBE. More osmanthus and bergamot and lavender - perfect for this promising-to-be-warm day.
Thanks jillsy - but I was much frowned upon. I got off to a bad start by arriving 5 minutes late, and I'm normally anally punctual. Perhaps I was distracted by smelling wonderfully fragrant, but as usual no one has remarked upon it one way or the other. Heathens, one and all. They don't deserve me.
I rearranged my travelling box of perfume samples last night, and I've added some Penhalligen's to the collection that I take everywhere in my bag. Cornubia, Hammam Bouquet and Blenheim Bouquet. I might apply one later this afternoon, probably Cornubia.
Very unusual scent of Scorpio by Ayala Morial.
(I could list the notes, but it would only throw you off.)
On the whole, it smells like stepping into an ancient spruce forest, dry twigs cracking underfoot, silence and woodiness all around, the aromatic sap dripping and hardening on the trunks of the evergreens. It is a celebration of resin.
Part of her discontinued Zodiac line, but it still available on special order.
The mega-shame is that soon she will no longer have samples lying around.
So, if you are curious, request samples of the unusual, all-natural, Zodiac fragrances while you still can. (All are half-price until the end of 2007.)
On another subject, it amuses me to see the range of temperatures among posters, from below freezing up all the way to the 70s today.
I've spent a very happy day in Tabac Blond. Including taking the WordChick to Mothers and Toddlers group.
Now in my PJs and starting work (freelancer + kids = midnight oil) and have refreshed with another spritz. Mmmm flannel jammies and TB. Works for me.
Finishing the evening in Habanita, practicing footwork with DH in the entry way (need a class in remedial high heel wearing- Himself has learned much better, but I step on my own toes). I will have to make myself wear this wicked scent out of the house. They just don't make skank like the used to.
