Hello Fellow Fumies,
At APJ we have a Saturday Question. Everyone gets to chime in with an answer, chat with other responders and it’s a fun event each week. Taking sides never means taking offence and everyone keeps it respectful and light, even though we can sometimes trawl the depths.
The idea is you’ll see it on the weekend or chime in through the week. Hopefully you will come back regularly and see if anyone has responded to your comment and you can reply to them. The aim is to generate real conversation and connection even though we are scattered around the globe.
Saturday Question: What Was or Would Be Your Wedding Perfume?
We talked recently about Wedding Perfume. Well I’m getting married tomorrow and on top of everything else that needs to be organised my mind has been going round and round wondering what I’ll wear. I’m embarrassed to admit, even to myself, how much brain time this has been taking.
I rejected some of my most obvious favourites like Shalimar, Miss Dior, Liberté, Equistrius, Mohur and others because I wear them so much that the significance might get lost. It had to be something I like enough to reach for but not something so ubiquitous that it loses impact. Also I wanted it to be beautiful and noticeable but sheer enough not to be the star of the show.
Rahelle by Neela Vermeire Creations 2016
Violets, leather and osmanthus tether a sheer white floral to the earth. Throughout its lifespan though Rahele keeps feeling and smelling like it’s reaching for the stars. Nothing could fragrantly actuate my vision of love and partnership better.
It will be wonderful too to have my buddy Neela wrapped around me for strength and centre during a very big, emotional day. After years of fighting for equality in Australia finally we are free to marry the man we love.
