Hello Fellow Fumies,
I have had an idea. Well, actually I’m copying an idea from Olfactoria’s Travels. Once a week there used to be a Question. Everyone would chime in with an answer, chat with other responders and it would be a generally fun events each week. Taking sides never meant taking offence and everyone kept it respectful and light.
I’d like to carry on that tradition, maybe you’ll see it on the weekend or chime in through the week. Hopefully you will come back and see if anyone has responded to your comment and you can reply to them.
If we get over 150 responses I will draw a $20 Surrender To Chance Gift Card. Every comment will get a place in the draw, so if you comment purposefully on your own or another comment you’ll have a chance, random.org will draw the winner on Friday and the winner will be announced in next Saturdays question.
Last Weeks Winner: Sadly we only made it to 113 comments. I did try and bump it along by replying and replying again. Fingers crossed for this week.
What Are Your Two Go-To Scents?
OK, so let’s get the playing field clear this week so your head doesn’t explode. We are talking currently. What are the two fragrances that you grab and spritz right now when making a clearly defined scent decision is either too brain consuming or more worry than it’s worth. The days where you just need to smell good, no questions asked, and probably will only notice what you’re wearing a few times throughout the day in between business.
Usually a Go-To will also not hijack your train of thought while you’re in a meeting or art gallery. It needs to be nice and smell good but not dominate the conversation or thought process. Maybe you wear it to the movies or dinner so it doesn’t cloud the sensual pleasures of letting yourself go completely to the moment.
Remember, we are talking about right now. What do you reach for instinctively, with no questions asked.
Lately my two most spritzed when on the go have been
Lolita Lempicka EdP
It’s so easy to wear. A gentle fun fizz to begin. Sweet liquorice and violet in the heart and a softly sweet vanilla woodsy base. Projection is moderate, the story is very nice but not overwhelming and I can focus on other things while wearing it. Yet, should I take a moment to sniff myself I smell lovely, comfortable and yummy.
Parfum d’Empire Equistrius
I know, this is a funny choice for a Go-To. What happened was I fell madly in love with this fragrance. Obsessed. Went through two 5ml decants quite quickly. It just seemed to fit me so perfectly. Anyway, I saw it selling on a friends Sale Doc overseas and purchased it but it took weeks to get here and I completely forgot my purchase. At the same time I also saw it on another friends Sale Doc and thinking I hadn’t bought it yet I grabbed that too. While both of those arrived yet another Sale Doc had it from a mate that was selling hers for an unbelievably low price, so you know what I did right? So having such largess and loving it to bits I will often multi sprite as I leave the house. It’s still beautiful to me, I love its iris plus the works attitude and it stays relatively back seat till I consciously sniff.
So my question to you is
