Yes, I spotted that and thought that eye looked a bit cloudy!
Oh dear, Ubu
, that must have been scary - stay safe!
And poor Therese
with earache - that can be so distracting - anything in the head is hard to detach yourself from.
Well, I am having a pretty gross day testing and just today I do not care that the Ava Luxe shop is shut, even though I love Gardenia Musk and am keen to try the iconic LTBL. No, today the shop can stay closed, for I am sampling some rather disagreeable things:AL Kretek
(clove cigarettes - neatly combining a habit I do not have and memories of the dentist's chair - not a winning combo)AL Madeleine
(dental anaesthetic, that is how piquant the spices were)AL The Noir
(I don't drink coffee, but this could drive me into the arms of Starbucks)AL Tokion
(strange little herbal incense number)
To leaven the lump (with little success), I also applied:AG Eau du Ciel
(like L'Ete en Douce - "laundry soap on steroids")Dior Midnight Poison
(this is so insipid - like a weak fruity floral - I am wondering if it has been mislabelled - I was expecting something a bit woody, a bit darker.)Il Profumo Acqua e Sale
(this makes me crave sugar pronto, though the one with Zucchero in it I know I find too sweet!)Armani Gio
(the original one with carnation or clove, though with some headier notes in there - hyacinth? Lilac? The clovey carnation note is dominant - seems I cannot escape the dentist theme today.)
