Yep, feels like a Monday to me, too.
Hard for Big to go back to work today after 10 days off, bless him.
Must make something nice for tea. (What, I wonder? Hmm. Cookbooks...)
Beautiful sunny day here and having just discussed the filth-o-rama potential of various beloved fragrances over on the hilarious 'trailer park hooker' thread, I am tempted by L'Air de Rien, Bulgari Black and Bal a Versailles, just for peversity's sake. But Ava Luxe's No 23 is sitting there, calling my name. Oh, what shall it be????
Well, in fact it's Molinard de Molinard. I was doing some decanting as I am posting two parcels today and wanted to slip a few other things in, you know, as you do. And Molinard de Molinard is such a little cracker that I often send a dab to friends. Voila! Perfect for a sunny day.
FYI, my 76 years-old Mam came in while I was squirting things into vials and sniffed appreciatively. "Mmm, smells like a perfume shop in here! Can I have a squirt of that one?" Narcisse Noir! "Are you sure, Mum? it's a bit of a powerful one" And then I remembered: this is the lady for whom I bought Fleurs de Rocaille, thinking it would be perfect to wear to church, and while she liked it, and does wear it to church, she swiped the bottle of Shalimar neither I nor my best friend is woman enough to be able to wear with confidence.
So I'm in Molinard de Molinard and Mum is in Narcisse Noir. Small had a spritz of Fragonard's Miranda because 'it smells like coconut soap', which is her current favourite. It goes perfectly with the lilac and puce fairy outfit her Nana has helped her to put on.
Today's trip to the supermarket is going to be a riot, I can tell.
Have a lovely day, all.
