Hello Fellow Fumies,
Every Saturday we have a Question, an idea purloined from Olfactoria’s Travels. Everyone gets to chime in with an answer, chat with other responders and it is 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 and see if anyone has responded to your comment and you can reply to them.
Saturday Question: Currently High Rotation Perfumes?
High Rotation around here is not so very high but there is a tray in my wardrobe with some of the things I reach for most regularly. It has about 20 fragrances on it but I don’t reach for all of them weekly.
So the three that I reach for most at the moment seem to be
Hermès Monsieur Li:
Monsieur Li has been a favourite since I picked it up a gift pack on sale in Japan a few years ago. The refreshing, greasy citrus and cool water smell of it is both calming and centering. Perfect for the heat of summer here in Sydney.
CHANEL No 19 EdT:
I think most perfumistas have at least tried the elegant cool sophistication of CHANEL No 19. Awash in roses and iris with a mossy dry down that manages to be both comfortable and aloof. I can’t imagine summer without it.
Neela Vermeire Pichola:
Shimmering white flowers with green herbaceousness cutting through the creamy sensuality. Pichola is a perfect reflection of Pichola Lake in Udaipur, Rajasthan, India. Having stayed at the lake Palace there a few times I am also transported to very happy times indeed.
