Hey there APJ Crew,
Fabulous fragrances and a chill week of work, people and hanging around the apartment. We are getting our much needed rain now in steady, and often heavy, amounts.
Scent Diary: 11.3 – 17.3.2019
Slept. Slept. Slept.
Got up at 10am. Fed and walked dogs.
SOTDay: Mohur by Neela Vermeire Creations.
Cleaned the house. Dusted, Clothes Washing, Swept, Vacuumed, Cleaned the blades on the retractable ceiling fans and started on the vertical blinds (jobs get done twice annually), Bathroom.
Started writing TRIVIA Q&A
Watched the first The Fast & The Furious movie.
Jin picked me up to go to the gym and pool. We had a spectacular fight about nothing. He turned around and dropped me at home. Fight continued when he came home. Bloody boring TBH.
Jin then made the most delicious Dumpling Soup. OMG! So yummy.
SOTEvening: Bulgari Eau Parfumée Au Thé Vert
12.35 FINISHED my TRIVIA Q&A.
SOTBed: Veil by Oliver & Co. (review coming)
Got up. Ready to go for Aquarobics and gym.
Remembered the tradespeople were coming to do some minor concrete repairs around the building and that I had to be on site to let people into other apartments. GRRRRRR.
SOTMorning: Hermès Monsieur Li.
Watched 2 Fast & 2 Furious and Fast & Furious: Tokyo Drift. I can totally see why these films became hits and are still running today. So much dumb fun and bad assery.
Bubble bath, shave and scrub.
SOTAfternoon: Wan Chai by Teone Reinthal. I find it blooms beautifully in the heat. MMMMMMM
Lay around. It got really hot again this afternoon. Enervating. Jin finally couldn’t stand it and put the AC on.
Off to work. I love Tuesday nights. It’s a really fun crew at Parramatta RSL. They feel like family and we all have a laugh.
Home and I watched Fast and Furious and Fast & Furious 5. It’s rubbish but I’m utterly swept away in the fun of it all. No wonder these have been such enormous hits.
SOTBed: Black Perfecto by Guerlain. This shit is SWEET. I like it though. The bottle is better than the scent but the scent is OK. Puts me in mind of a more foody Tresor Midnight Rose.
Bloody hell, it’s 3am. BED!
Walked the dogs all around the neighbourhood for over an hour this morning. It was lovely. Here are a couple of pics of them. Paris first, then Jinx.
Did some blogging.
Watched The Fast & the Furious numbers 6 & 8. For some reason Aussie Netflix doesn’t have 7.
SOTEvening: Seville a l’Aube by L’Artisan. Orange, orange blossom and smoke. Perfection. Inspired by MMKinPAs SOTD.
Worked. another good night at Greystanes Inn. They have a really nice crowd and the food is awesome.
Home and Jin and I went to the gym. YAY. We did Chest and Triceps. I’m already a bit sore.
Came home and finished our VISA applications for Mongolia. So excited about it. We have a friend helping us with the itinerary. Woo Hoo!
SOTBed: THUNKED my Dzhari by Phaedon sample. Sweet, boozy, woodsy and a hint of dates
Woken by the guy who is delivering dabbers for BINGO tonight. PHEW! I thought they’d never get here.
Jumped up and walked the dogs through the cool, misty raining morning.
SOTMorning: Jardin Clos by Diptyque. Thunked my 2ml spray sample. It’s a pretty lilac/hyacinth and oak moss. So lovely.
Jinn and I ran around doing stuff. Had some lunch and i came home fort a rest after our draining morning (He He He)
Into the bath jumped I and thunked Vintage 2016 Shower Gel by Molton Brown. A full bottle in the bin. Woo Hoo!
SOTAfternoon: Lys Soleia by Guerlain
BINGO was jam packed tonight. Complete Sell Out! About 150 players. So much fun.
Home and decided to douse myself in Un Jour d’Ete by Keiko Mecheri
Watched the movie Hancock, with Will Smith, Charlize Theron and Jason Bateman. I like it. Easy, fun and should have spawned a franchise, totally bummed that it didn’t.
Coffee with Kath and her Dad.
Came home and gave myself a sneaky spritz or two of Santal ++++ by Miller et Bertaux
Bus & train
Lunch with Hyun, Phil and Michael at the Lobby Bar in Castlereagh St. SO YUMMY!
Hyun and I went to perfume try in Cartier, Dior & Tiffany & Co. VERY fragrant by the end of that.
Train & bus
Home, Took dogs for a wee. Collapsed.
Watched The Hunger Games again. Loved it.
SOTBed: Escapade a Byzance by Olibere Paris
SOTMorning: Aromatics Elixir by Clinique
Visited Scott at his new job and took him a coffee from his favourite Parramatta coffee house. He was chuffed.
Hung out with Kath and Dad for a short while.
Jin and I went and saw Alita: Battle angel. It was good. Some very slow bits but I was fully invested in the outcome, which never came. TBH the whole movie felt like an introduction.
Had a nap.
SOTAfternoon: Liu by Guerlain. Their very Guerlain response to CHANEL No 5.
Kath came to join us for a night of Parramasala. The local Indian event that coincides approximately with their festival of Holi. Sadly the rain had scared almost everyone away. There wasn’t even a decent Indian food van. We were sad.
SO, we walked to Jin and my new favourite Indian restaurant so we could have give Kath an experience of their Garlic Naan, Paan Tikka and Butter Chicken (among other things). Heaven. Walked back home, said goodbye to kath.
Jin fed the dogs and as I started walking them the heavens opened and I am SOAKED to the bone. The dogs loved it, positively frisking in the downpour. I think they’ve never been outside in a full storm before.
SOTMorning: Mona di Orio Eau Absolue
Jin woke up feeling most unwell. Tonsillitis symptoms.
It’s still pissing down. The roads are awash and if it continues like this Sydney is going to be submerged.
We popped around to our mate Paul’s place for morning tea and to check out his renovations.
Bathtime. Dyed, shaved and shaped my beard, got myself feeling glowing and fresh.
SOTAfternoon: Caravelle Epices by Frapin
Off to work at Austral BC tonight. I love it there. Going to be quiet because it’s so wet.
