Happy Friday, all!
Chaya and SMM, I am super jealous of your outing (in a good way!) - I anticipate you are going to have a FABULOUS time in each other's company, and completely terrorize the SAs. Please do report back on the board!
Off to a work retreat (even though I'm on borrowed time there, I am glad to still be included!), then DH and I are off to NYC for a long weekend -- Our present to each other for our 20th anniversary. I will likely be off-line for a few days, but will report back! We have absolutely no fixed plans, just wander and come up with things to do on the spur of the moment.
Today I'm wearing my very very favorite of the Parfums MDCI line: Parfum MDCI Invasion Barbare. By extremely talented perfumer Stephanie Bakouche (I sang her praises to Frederic Malle when he was at Barneys in Boston last fall... Told him he should turn HER loose in his perfume studios and see what masterpiece she comes up with!)
Notes: Grapefruit, bergamot, violet leaves, white thyme, cardamom, lavender, ginger, cedarwood, vanilla and musk.
My SoTE will be L'Uomo Trussardi, which always makes me think of Scentemental, from whom I got this gorgeous (and sadly discontinued) juice. Hope you're doing well, Scentemental, wherever you are.
Top Notes: Mandarin, Bergamot, Lavender, Tomato Leaves.
Middle Notes: Cedar, Spicy notes, Floral notes, Geranium.
Base Notes: Amber, Woods, Sandalwood, Okumal, Patchouli, Vanilla, Tobacco Leaf.
