What I learned this month:
I learned I like Jo Malone Black Vetyver Café, but not for any rational reason. Its selling points should be its notes of vegetative vetiver, captivating coffee, intoxicating incense, and seductive sequoia. However, other than the vetiver, I don't really focus in on the notes. The fragrance isn't really noticeable overall despite its apparently strong elements. I can't slot it into any obvious categories for sweetness or sultriness, bravado or nature-inspired ethereal-ness. I can't give credit to BVC for activating any memory chords. It doesn't really affect my mood. And, I don't imagine it having enough throw to affect anyone around me. So, my attraction is utterly indefensible.
I just like it. Ain't that funny?
