…I also have a new sewing machine. I took a class recently called Getting to Know Your Sewing Machine
, for absolute beginners. I was planning to spend some time with mine today, too. My crafting projects are expanding exponentially now in my imagination. Hopefully, I will use the machine enough to justify buying it.
I randomly selected Lanvin’s Rumeur
(Francis Kurkdjian) this morning just before leaving the house, and it’s a good choice for me, as usual. I love this fragrance because I can wear it when I don’t want a fragrance that makes a statement, which is most of the time, as I’m not usually the type for the big guns, and Rumeur never lets me down. I find it very easy to wear. It’s a bit sweet/rosy/musky, and a bit aldehydic. It’s modern yet has some class and clarity. It doesn’t shout, it’s perfectly presentable, and yet I find it just a tiny bit eccentric. Tania Sanchez had a one word review for it in The Guide - “Baseless
”, which is not off the mark – it isn’t what you’d call bottom heavy – but I think it deserves more appreciation than that.
It’s hot, but I get to try more fragrances because they don’t seem to last as long in this weather. There’s always a silver lining somewhere.
