How’s it hanging APJ?
It is still too bloody hot to move here. Major heatwave over most Europe and it has been going on for months. Up to 38° on some days. Too damn hot.
CQ’S IT’S TOO DAMN HOT SCENTS
I am so happy that I live in a country with four seasons, and not somewhere permanently hot. Not all fragrances work in the heat. Two of my überfaves, Cuir de Lancôme and Malle’s Dries Van Noten being prime examples. Roll on the cooler weather. I should probably move to Scotland.
So let’s cut the crap and go straight into it. My five most worn in this heatwave are Hermès Cèdre Sambac and Hermès Cuir d’Ange, both worn on top of the Hermès Musc Pallida Oil. I have used about 30mls of the Cèdre Sambac, which says a lot. The combination of the oil and perfume is to die for. The violet and the hawthorn hidden in the Cuir d’Ange are gorgeous in the heat. Galop d’Hermès and Malle’s Le Perfume de Thérèse complete the five. These are followed up by Vero Profumo’s Rubj and Kiki EdPs, Chanel’s Coromandel and Boy, and Malle’s Superstitious. So now you know.
The evenings have started to cool down a little over the last couple of weeks, proving that autumn will turn up sooner or later. I have been able to wear my N°18 EdP after my evening shower. An update here: there are tendrils of incense in the base, wrapped round the iris and ambrette. I didn’t pick up not this before. I cannot wait for cold weather and I am gonna wear this to infinity and beyond.
I had 50mls of Dior’s Mitzah in a Luten’s export rectangular bottle. I took it to the gym last week, and after my workout tipped it out of my gym bag, straight onto the tiled floor. Had.
I met up with Freddie Albrighton, tattoo artist extraordinaire, former blogger, Verophile, and friend in Salzburg last week. He was passing through on his six month traveling through Europe trip. Was brilliant, and damn hot.
Any heatwave faves guys?
