    So, what’s the connection between Pearl Harbor and Woto? Curious!

    I don't know the real answer, but that Woto packaging has always looked Polynesian to me. Tiki-ish.

    A very retro style fragrance that I think could appeal to individuals from that era. The scent was released in 68 but I think that folks who were around in the early 40s might like this scent. Very green, aromatic, and uplifting. A very dated scent that could appeal to a lot of men of those times.

    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

    Congratulations to RHM's daughter on passing her RN exam! Such a wonderful profession.

    I had to be scent-free three days last week, so I am making up for it today in Salome. It's pouring rain and I'm staying inside and assembling my new kitchen island, to replace the wobbly microwave cart. Lots of storage inside, I can finally hide the pet food.

    All day yesterday while wearing K de Krizia for the sync, I kept thinking "Why do I allow this to just languish in a drawer?", so it's getting a reprise today. The perfume so nice I had to wear it twice.

    It's hard to imagine a bombshell like Salome accompanying some elementary carpentry work. I hope you were wearing a bustier while brandishing that Allen wrench.

    While not really my style, this is undeniably a great scent.

    Love this, foxbins! One day of Salome is equivalent to three days of anything else for sure.

    I’m wearing Guerlain Heritage. Yes, it’s raining here too.

    Have a good day.

    Chanel, Antaeus

    Finally, after ruminating for years over the valid reasons why I cannot/shouldn’t delve into powerhouse fragrances I grabbed a sample with the intention of having a personal ceremony back at my wigwam (sorry for the crass cultural appropriation).

    But 3 sprays (!!!) later in the safety of my smokehouse and surely one might comprehend why I feel like culturally appropriating terms, identities, and pretty much whatever the $&@ I want. After all, my wiring has been reset to some scrumptious toxic masculinity . . . and I’m loving it!

    Why have a waited so long? I tried this as a teenager but it was too mature for me, and I was already playing nice with the spicier Drakkar Noir and getting more romantic attention if I woreRed for Men. While some may snicker, that was as loud as I would attempt in fragrance as the 2000s saw me turn a different corner. Then I tried it again 10 years ago, 5 years ago, and I guess I just wasn’t ready.

    Now it’s different. Mind you, I’m in the safety of my home following my (intended) overspray manoeuvring. No regrets on the bold application, though, for I am truly engulfed in a state of bliss. I’ve been wearing it for a few hours so I’m going to venture out for my Saturday errands. The public be damned - either show your respect or make way for the king.

    This is good.
