Oh, what a lovely, poetic thought!! xo
Thanks to whatever viral thing I have, I slept most of yesterday away which had zero effect on my being able to fall asleep last night; I slept like a log and thus feel more like myself today. My son, on the other hand, got it worse than I did. I've got all the windows open and am spraying down everything that won't move with Lysol.
SOTD is Dawn Spencer Hurwitz Vanille. Far from being merely a plain foody vanilla, its citrusy notes up top dry out some of the sweetness and lend a pleasing astringency. I also get an intriguing note of wet stones or wet pavement which adds a bit of complexity. Lovely stuff.
notes include bergamot, lemon, heliotrope, vanilla, Australian sandalwood, vanilla absolute
Take care, everyone!
