Val the Cookie Queen.
Well hello APJ
I am roaming around Scotland as you read this, although I am sat here writing it a good week beforehand. It is gonna be the shortest post ever as I am up to my eyeballs in cookie dough, packing, decanting, and attempting an online checkin. altho I lived in England for some years I never made it up to Scotland. I have always wanted to go and we finally booked a week there. A couple of days in Edinburgh and the we will head up to Fort William and see that happens along the way. What scents am I taking?
Holiday Perfumes; and Jumper Love?
Pretty straight forward. Left to right. Frederic Malle Le Parfum de Therese. IUNX L’Ether. Frederic Malle Rose & Cuir. Frederic Malle L’Eau d’Hiver. Hermés Cèdre Sambac and Cardamusc. I am meeting two very good perfumista friends in Edinburgh; in fact that is one of the main reasons for going and I am sure I will grab a few more things to try whilst I am there.
Portia recently reviewed Mandy Aftel`s Embers and Musk Extrait on Perfume Posse, and mentioned that it opens like a well worn jumper. I remarked that it sounded lovely but that I owned no jumper. Portia was surprised, especilaly as I live in a country with cold winters.
I hate jumpers and anything similar that has to be pulled over my head. Did not like them as a kid and do not like them now. I asked around the family and the answer was the same. Ugh, no. T-shirts are no problem of course, but then they are not jumpers. I don’t like sweatshirt that pull over my head either, although an oversize baggy hoodie, as long as it is made of cotton is ok. I wear a snug long sleeved Lululemon undershirt with a flannel shirt on top, or t-shirts and big hoodies and warm scarves. I keep warm just fine, but definitely no jumper love.
So I have a theory that more people will dislike jumpers as love them, based on, well the fact that I cannot bear them and cannot believe anyone else can either. Very scientific. Drop a line into the comments with a hate or love, or Mommy makes me wear one, and let’s see.
Bagpipes and Bussis.
