Hey there APJ Crew,
Where did this week go? It seems to have sped by in moments. I have been to distracted to wear a lot of fragrance but did see a bunch of friends and get some work done. TBH the week went by in a blur.
Scent Diary: 10.12 – 16.12.2018
OK, did not jump out of bed today. Feeling a glimmer short of a sparkle. No reason, just flat and a bit achy.
Weighed in and not surprised I’ve only lost 100g this week. Slow progress is better than no progress. There were a couple of happy blow outs during the week and I’m really grateful that I got to spend joyful food times with special people. TBH I think it’s water storage, I just feel a bit lumpy.
SOTCleaning: Auburn by Tauer Perfumes.Surreal orange and stuff, like outer space fragrance. LOVE IT!
I can’t seem to motivate myself to anything today. Did the most desultory clean of the house since we moved in I reckon. Vacuumed, cleaned kitchen and bathroom. Totally ignored the dusting. Three loads of washing and hanging clothes and I’m done.
SOTAfternoon: Peau de Bete by Liquides Imaginaires. It’s OUTRAGEOUSLY skanky but still manages to be wearable and lovely.
I’m not sure what’s wrong with me today. I’m not with the program at all.
Jin came home from work and cooked the most amazing chicken and vegetable dinner all coated in chilli sauce. Bloody delicious.
I washed up the cook plate, packed the dishwasher, fed & walked the dogs.
Went in and lay with Jin while he went to sleep. That was nice.
Came back to write Q&A and my eyes are telling me to go to bed.
Couple of big blasts of Aromatics Elixir by Clinique. SO GOOD!
SOTMorning: Teazzura by Guerlain. perfect focus scent. Light, refreshing, gives me a dry ache in the back of my throat. Lovely.
Got the TRIVIA Q&A done by 8.30am, took another hour to answer APJ comments. Fed & walked the dogs.
Scott and i did Office Work for about an hour, then we went and got a bunch of must do things on the list done. Had myself a haircut & shave, bought Jin’s Xmas present, Post Office run Etc.
Home and cleaned myself up, beard dye, nap.
SOTAfternoon: Miss Dior EdT and Extrait
Off to work!
I don’t know what’s wrong with me but all I want to do is sleep. It’s like when I was a teen and growing. I’d sleep for weeks and my body would sprout up and out and I’d need new clothes.
SOTDay: Vanille Noire by Yves Rocher
Hardly moved today until I had to go to work.
SOTEvening: L’Heure Brilliant VI Cartier. The aromatic, ozonic elegance of Jin’s favourite from the line. I had to go to his wardrobe to spritz. This range is sheer perfection for me, sadly on their way out.
Home now, ready for bed.
SOTBed: Shalimar EdC by Guerlain
Up and off to Aquarobics and the Gym with Jin.
Went to town and my buddy Phil bought me lunch. SO YUMMY! We had so much catching up to do that I forgot to snap a pic.
Raced across to the Art Gallery of NSW to see the Treasures of the Hermitage exhibition with another mate Lisa. WOW! We had a wonderful tour guide who knew so much it was overwhelming. Amazing afternoon.
Dashed back near home to see Ainslie walker at her new job but the traffic was horrific and I missed her by 12 minutes!!! Still shopped at the Glasshouse Sale Store.
Home just in time to farewell Jin and did a three point collapse on the couch.
Jumped in the car this evening and went to IKEA to grab my Xmas wrapping paper and a couple of mini presents.
9-10pm I walked the dogs in the cool, sultry, sprinkling rain. It was lovely.
Jin and I trotted off to the Sydney Olympic Pools again for Aquarobics, Laps and a Gym Session. It was a TOUGH one.
SOTDay: Pour un Homme Caron. The lavender lovely.
Came home, had lunch and both fell asleep.
We went out and saw The Crimes go Grinelwald. What a bloody let down.
Afterwards we tried a new Thai place just around the corner from our local cinema. We have been talking about going there for over three years and it was AMAZING! So delicious. Four dishes just over $40. Such good value and service. Loved it.
Now jin’s snoring on the couch and I’m going to cuddle the dogs.
Retried some oils from India that I bought a few years ago. The perfumer is a fifth generation perfume wallah in Delhi. They used to make excellent, beautiful, rich and elegant oils but these ones are full of cheap synthetics. They smell like cleaning products to me.
Watched some TV and now ready for bed.
SOTBed: Trefle Pur by Aftelier Cologne
It’s this muggy weather that enervates me so. I woke up under the fan in the living room bathed in an icky, sticky, half sweat,
The house cleaned. There are some perfumistas coming for a lunch sniff.
Had a thunderstorm here about 15 minutes after everyone left. Now we are in blackout.
Still blackout. Don’t want to waste my phone battery. More next week
SOTD: Amor Amor by Cacharel. A gift from Anna Maria. I am sweet and fruity.
