Monday scent of the day 6/16

Malabi

Monday, Monday. What fragrance are you wearing, and did you plan to wear it, or pick it at the last minute?

I'm wearing Ayala Moriel's lovely Musk Malabi.

Reminder: this Friday, the 20th, is Fruity Friday...how fruity can you go?

And for those of you who like to plan ahead, see Scent of the day ~ Friday community projects 2014, where I'll try to always have the next six or seven weeks mapped out in advance.

The Mamas and The Papas at Monterey Pop 1967...

Note: top image shows Ginger Malabi, and you can find the recipe at the Dorot website.

    Wearing Terracotta Le Parfum and I don’t generally plan out what I’m going to wear–it’s usually whatever I happen to be in the mood for

  2. kindcrow says:

    SOTD is Bluebird by Olivine Atelier. I have their sample pack. The first time I tried Bluebird, I liked it and did not smell anything, ummm, untoward. This time, I got a snootful of smegma (with a touch of feces) at the first sniff. It took 10 or 15 minutes for that intro to wear down, but something vile still lurks underneath. I will be traumatized for life :-0

    Did I plan to wear it today? Well, this morning, when I thought of what to wear, it was the first thing that came to mind.

    • Robin says:

      Ack. 8-O

    • kindcrow says:

      After a couple of hours, it cleaned up back to the pleasant NON-indolic orange blossom-stargazer lily combo I liked so much the first time I sampled this frag. If it were not for the long Eau de Smegma opening, a FB would definitely be in my future.

      Ack, indeed.

    • hajusuuri says:

      This is exactly why I need to “curate” my untested samples before they become eligible for the sample bag untested sample Friday ;-)

    • perthgirl says:

      Oh Lordy! My condolences. That’s one smell that really doesn’t need to be bottled :-/

  3. nebbe says:

    Infusion d’Iris. Last minute choice – planned to wear JLo Still, but my hand veered at the last minute. The weather is overcast with a promise of showers and Infusion is a good match for the weather and my plans.

    • Robin says:

      Love Infusion…really I think it’s a good match for nearly anything.

    • hajusuuri says:

      Works for me too under any and every circumstance.

  4. Janice says:

    I’m wearing Havana Vanille (as it’s still called on my bottle). I picked it at the last minute as it looked like it would be another cool and overcast day here… California’s June gloom.

    • Robin says:

      I never did hear the story about why they changed the name, did you?

      • Janice says:

        No, I didn’t… but I think this is also one that’s being discontinued?

        • Robin says:

          I think so, although frankly the list was so long that I kind of lost track of what was staying and what was going. And looks like they will cycle older scents in and out of production, so hard to tell anyway.

          • hajusuuri says:

            Last year, the SA at the L’Artisan boutique at Bendel’s mentioned that the discontinued ones are really not being discontinued but are being repackaged. Perhaps they will all be in those ugly squat bottles.

      • tomate farcie says:

        I think there was a problem with Habanita (legal I presume)

        • Robin says:

          Seriously?? The names aren’t all that close. Oh well, thanks!

    • nozknoz says:

      That’s one I like later in the summer when it’s less humid (here in the DC area).

  5. johanob says:

    I’m on a Chanel kick currently!SOTD No.18!Gorgeously rich Iris!Yesterday was 28 La Pausa,the softly spoken sister of No.18.I have perfume loving skin so 28 La Pausa lasts a good 7 hours on skin,No 18 is a sillage-monster on me!Love it!Finally got around this weekend to make 10ml travelsprays in cute little Metallic Atomizers from the Chanel vats,really enjoying discovering the Chanels again!(plus it’s a public holiday today over here,double Happiness!!)

    • johanob says:

      It was planned since testerday…lol…meant yesterday!!;-))

      • Merlin says:

        But I do think thats a great word for when one is trying out a perfume, or different perfumes rather than wearing one that you have a bottle of and know you like. So, tomorrow I may have a testerday and wear my sample of Montale’s Black Musk!

        • johanob says:

          Is there a Black Musk now?Did not know!I’ve only tried the Black Oud!

    • Robin says:

      Enjoy your day off!

      • johanob says:

        Thank you!Was a lazy day….;-))

  6. AnnS says:

    Mine was a last minute choice – I needed something fresh, pretty and not too challenging. My brain hurts today! I’m wearing Laura Mercier’s Neroli. It’s a very pretty, pillowy orange blossom floral.

    • Robin says:

      Sorry your brain hurts…

      • AnnS says:

        I’m in a love-hate relationship with my allergy medicine….. ;-) All will be well once the caffeine kicks in.

        • Robin says:

          My son is having a tough time this spring too.

  7. floragal says:

    I’ve been trying some spicy/smokey roses, latest love is Paestum Rose and its my SOTD.
    I do think about what I’ll wear scent-wise. I do so because I want to mix it up and continue to learn. I could easily wear the same scent everyday — I do have a few I really enjoy – but I like to explore!

    • johanob says:

      Floralgal,just interested to know what you think about Bodyshop’s Musk Smoky Rose?I think it’s really well done,and the price tag won’t break the bank!;-)

      • floragal says:

        I have no idea! But that’s an easy one to try out and will do so ASAP!

        Thanks!!

        • johanob says:

          Cool!Let me know what you think!

  8. relleric says:

    SOTD is Eau De Cologne (Chanel). This stuff does NOT last… :)

    • Robin says:

      It really doesn’t. Pretty while it lasts, though.

  9. egabbert says:

    I’m wearing Rien. The sample has been sitting on my desk for a while and I decided today was the day. I like it a lot so far; was expecting animalic but I’m getting more campfire + clean musk.

    • AnnieA says:

      Do you feel like a Lady Executive from the 50’s? I usually do when I wear it…

      • egabbert says:

        I usually go for a chypre when I want that lady exec vibe!

    • austenfan says:

      My favourite from ELdO and one of my favourite fragrances full stop. It’s a powerhouse, but a good one.

      • egabbert says:

        I’m just wearing a dab from a Lucky Scent sample. Would love to smell what it’s like when sprayed.

        • austenfan says:

          Nuclear! I’m always reminded of the description of Poison in Perfumes the Guide whenever I wear Rien.
          It’s actually one of the few fragrances that are probably easier to “handle” dabbed.

    • sweetgrass says:

      I haven’t smelled Rien in a while, but I remember the first time I sniffed a sample of it, I started laughing because it smelled like fireworks to me.

    • hajusuuri says:

      I have to garner the courage to try it. I got a decant sample from STC last year and when I sniffed the atomizer, it smelled like old leather worn too long.

  10. Erin says:

    I’m wearing Providence Perfume Co. Tabac Citron, which I’m sure your review lead me to. Lovely and fresh/breezy for the day.

    • floragal says:

      Hi Erin, how’s the tobacco in this? Is it noticeable on you?
      Love the notes but really want that tobacco to come thru.

      • Erin says:

        My answer might not be incredibly useful to you, as tobacco is a note I sometimes have trouble with, and I was a bit taken aback by the amount of tobacco in the opening. (What did I expect?! It’s called Tabac Citron.) But I would say that the tobacco is most prominent in the top notes and the beginning of the heart notes — you get the impression of very blond tobacco, adding dryness and a tinge of earthiness to the overall sun-roasted, blue sky impression — and afterward it comes off more as Robin describes, more of lemon-lovers scent, with a good touch of lavender. It reminds me most, actually, of a more citrus-y Dior Eau Noire. May not be what you’re looking for, unfortunately, but I think it’s certainly worth trying.

        • floragal says:

          Thank you! I’ll check out her review as well.

    • Robin says:

      Yum, love that one!

    • hajusuuri says:

      I included a sample of this with a recent order from Indigo Perfumery.

  11. lynne marie says:

    SOTD is Vanille Insensee, although I can’t really smell it. In fact, I have had no sense of smell for a whole month now and it’s making me bonkers. Life without my beloved perfume has been just plain dreary. I had a very bad virus/cold a month ago and although I seem recovered, I haven’t regained my sense of smell. Has this happened to any of you? If it did, was there anything you did to get your sense of smell back? Or will this just take time? A month seems like forever already. If any one has any help or ideas I would appreciate it so much!

    • kindcrow says:

      I’m very sorry about the loss of your sense of smell. I hope that it returns soon. I found something on-line about a perfume for people with anosmia. Here is the link: http://glasspetalsmoke.blogspot.com/2011/12/eau-pear-tingle-perfume-inspired-by.html. Caveat: I have not read the entire post; it is quite long. It seems interesting, though.

    • Robin says:

      None, or just diminished?

      There are also some good anosmia resources on the Monell site:

      http://www.monell.org/research/anosmia

      • lynne marie says:

        Thanks for the resources, Robin and Kindcrow – I’ll look into them, Every once in a while I think I’m starting to smell things and then it sort of fades away again. I put on enough Chanel no.5 the other night that my husband could smell me from across the room and I smelled absolutely nothing. I’m thinking my sinuses may just be totally clogged, I can’t think of what else it might be. Today I’m starting a 3 day course of Mucinex just to see if there is anything that can be loosened up. Blech.

    • 2rista says:

      Sorry about the anosmia. Have you thought that you might have nasal and/or sinusal polyps? My husband lost his sense of smell and suffered from congestion and was finally diagnosed with polyps. He’s now awaiting surgery, after which I hope he’ll finally notice how good I smell!

      SOTD Tréfle Pur.

  12. nozknoz says:

    Not planning to wear perfume in this heat, but I’m enjoying a tiny dab of Ceil Chapman parfum. I downloaded Angela’s novel The Lanvin Murders yesterday evening and only reluctantly stopped reading around 3 am. I’ve gotten a bit past the point at which the Joanna wears a vintage cocktail dress by Ceil Chapman. Born in Staten Island, she is described as a favorite of Marilyn Monroe.

    I wonder if Marilyn ever wore the perfume – seems likely, doesn’t it? It reminds me of both No. 5 and Mitsouko at first, later, a bit more floral, with very nice sandalwood, too. It’s not unusual to find it on ebay, in fact, there are several there now (no affiliation).

    • nozknoz says:

      It’s also reminding me of Norell, but warmer. Very feminine, like those dresses.

  13. melissa says:

    I’m wearing Cartier Baiser Vole EDP because it was first in line in among my easy everyday scents. I also have a card sprayed with the Lys Rose flanker still in my bag from this weekend, so it’s a Baiser Vole day all round.

    • hajusuuri says:

      I just got a carded sample of this from Nordstrom! I asked the SA about it and she said there is only one in the store and it was kept in the Men’s perfume department (of all places). She went over there and came back with it for me to take home :-)

  14. foxbins says:

    I’m in Tauer Le Maroc pour Elle this morning; not what I was planning, but I was dusting and moved the bottle and decided to wear it. I think it was a good choice, I am enjoying it a lot.

    • Merlin says:

      I don’t wear LME that that often because its just such a rich and happy scent that I worry that I will use up my happy quotient too soon! Its one of the few scents that changes really dramatically on me. It’s top notes are like a haphazard bouquet of cerise florals and then it wears into this wonderful Betty Boop bubblegum flavor :-D

  15. rose pepper says:

    Musk Malabi sounds great! Another perfume and brand to go on my to-try list. How does it compare to other rose perfumes? My SOTD is Sa Majeste La Rose, again. I wore Narcisco Rodriguez For Her last night, and it was still around this morning so I thought a musky rose would be complementary.

    Malabi is one of my favorite desserts (although, really I haven’t met a dessert I didn’t like) and I’ve been wanting to make it for some time! Thanks for the recipe link :)

    • Robin says:

      It’s orange blossom as much as rose, & slightly milky. Really nice, no idea how it compares to the dessert — never had it!

  16. scentfromabove says:

    Happy Monday Everyone! My SOTD is Gardenia Rattan by Aerin Lauder. I have a gift box with all 5 of her new fragrances and hadn’t been really using them. So, I figured, I might as well wear it. Although GR is a pleasant fragrance, I’m not crazy about it and wouldn’t purchase a FB of it. Ikat Jasmine is my favorite out of the five, but I have basically used that one all up. I probably would buy a FB of the IKAT. So, I guess I chose the right fragrance for this Monday. Nothing special about Mondays for me, nothing special about the Monday fragrance I am wearing. LOL!

  17. teri says:

    I’m wearing a decant of Neil Morris “Gotham” today. I received it in the mail on Saturday from a friend who thought it was right up my alley. She was right. This is a warm cozy amber and quite nice. I probably wouldn’t have worn it if I planned to be outside today as it’s expected to get to around 90 degrees. But inside, in the meat locker temps they keep in our offices, it’s just blooming wonderfully.

    I often plan a week in advance, but usually don’t follow the plan. :D

    • nozknoz says:

      “Meat locker temps” – so true!

  18. SophieC says:

    Hello first time comment for me, although I have been reading for years! Today started with Ambre Fetiche, which is unusual for me for this time of year but felt needed. Something calmer this evening I anticipate. Really enjoying reading about everyone’s choices for the past few weeks.

    • Robin says:

      Welcome, and thanks for delurking! You smell great, of course.

      • SophieC says:

        Thank you! Have since applied a few dabs of L’eau d’hiver – settling in for some more work and it always feel studious and calming.

  19. austenfan says:

    Ambre Russe layered with the Vanille Narcisse lotion from L’Occitane.

  20. AnnieA says:

    Wearing VCA Midnight in Paris. I usually decide which perfume to wear by whipping off the scarf protecting the bottles from sunlight and having a look.

    • nozknoz says:

      How do you like that one? A potential blind buy is tempting me!

      • Squirrely says:

        You didn’t ask me, but I’ll chime in – I love MIP, especially the soft tonka notes and the drydown. It reminds of a JCE creation. Also, the bottle is really pretty.

        • johanob says:

          It’s been on my BUY/TRY list for aaaages too.

    • egabbert says:

      I think I will layer some of that over my Rien later.

    • hajusuuri says:

      Hmmm, I have to remember to try this at Bergdorf.

  21. Squirrely says:

    C&E Wisteria. It’s a default work scent for me, especially on Monday (when I also generally default on my work clothes too, and do black dress, bright cardigan, silk scarf – no though required). The Wisteria pretty, easy, low sillage, and gone by the time I’m home, so if I want to really “live it up” and pick a different SOTE, I can.

    • nebbe says:

      Great go-to work outfit! Putting that in my brain files due reference later. Sometimesit is just impossible to get ready with any sort of v efficiency in the morning. Need go-to’s!

  22. flannery says:

    Very cool and wet this morning and I chose Seville a L’aube for the day. I happened to be browsing some youtube reviews this weekend and saw one from Luckyscent for 2013 scents and loved their comments on lovely L’aube so that must have influenced my choice. And I’m glad it did, it is its usual glorious self today :)

  23. Jonette says:

    SOTD yesterday and today has been FM Portrait of a Lady. My little sample is just about empty and I’m debating whether to save up for a fb. My nose is so fickle! I already own the original Agent Provocateur (pink bottle) and recently tried a whole bunch of similar scents, after recommendations here when I said I wanted something like it but with a bit of a punch. I decided on Lady Vengeance and bought a fb. Now I’m regretting that I didn’t go with POAL instead. I thought it was a bit too naughty (cumin?), but now I’m loving it and it’s just what I want. Oh, fickle, fickle nose! You will be the death of my wallet!

    • Merlin says:

      ‘Fickle, fickle, nose’ could be my anthem! If its any consolation I guess POAL is different enough to LV to warrant having both – especially since you do love dark roses. Of course $$$ always puts a damper on things, lol!

  24. GateGirl says:

    SOT(yester)D, Victoria’s Secret Blossoming Romance. Whenever I am feeling a little blue, a good dose of sugar with floral helps to cheer me up.

  25. GateGirl says:

    Re: planning what perfume to wear – I have a little box with the names of all my FBs on little pieces of paper, and then I do the pick-a-name-out-of-the-box thing. Saves me loads of time trying to figure out which scent I should wear that day, since choices are many!

    • Laurels says:

      Fun! I read somewhere that the Parfumo site (IIRC) has a similar online feature, but the low-tech version is often easier and more reliable.

      • bookwyrmsmith says:

        Basenotes has a pick me something random from my wardrobe feature too.

  26. bastet says:

    SOTD is two small sprays of Amouage Gold (woman). I’m in the office today but just wanted to treat myself on this Monday with something powerful and beautiful. I also brought along a small bottle of SSS Nostalgie for touch-ups (I don’t have a travel size of the Gold but thought Nostaglie would blend well with the remnants). But the Gold is still going strong more than 8 hours later so I still don’t know how the experiment will turn out.

  27. lucasai says:

    I’m wearing Entre Naranjos by Ramon Monegal Barcelona today. Love it’s refreshing and lively orange vibe on a warm day like today.

  28. missionista says:

    SOTD is Trefle Pur, since I wanted something different from the stuff I’ve been wearing for the past week. Smells so green and fresh, I love it!

  29. Coumarin says:

    Vintage Emeraude parfum from a lovely swap meet swapper. I love it but it is the only perfume my boyfriend has vetoed out of hand. But he likes MKK and ISM AND L’heure bleue so I can’t complain. Much. ;)

    • Coumarin says:

      I should say, I tried on a single spray of vintage Shalimar EDT at an antique mall which probably ruined anything similar for him.

  30. rebeccat94 says:

    I’m wearing Burberry Brit today.. I just love the almond-y scent!

  31. songeuse says:

    Un Jardin en Méditerranée, chosen at the last minute… I rarely plan my fragrance ahead unless it’s for a special occasion.

  32. happy888cat says:

    Chanel Jersey Extrait. The sweet lavender and vanilla is so comforting and beautiful. :)

    • galbanumgal says:

      Wore that today as well! It was pretty hot & I’ve been gardening, so it’s long gone now, but lovely while it lasted.

  33. sweetgrass says:

    Wearing Diptyque Volutes EDP today. Yummers.

  34. pyramus says:

    I put on some vintage Parfum d’Hermes extrait early this morning: a couple of hours after that, I showered and put on some Encens Lavande by Compagnie de Provence. Nearly ten hours later, I can still clearly smell the Parfum d’Hermes, which has some ferocious staying power.

  35. Jonette says:

    As for Robin’s question about planning to wear the SOTD or picking it at the last minute: I always wear scent. Every morning, when I wake up, I assess my mood, the weather, my plans and then find the fragrance that fits. It may need to be a comfort scent or something that projects self confidence or the impression of money or just makes me feel beautiful or happy or good-smelling.
    I have a choice of several scents that I wear to sleep, but most often, it’s Lalique Amethyst.

  36. Rappleyea says:

    SOTD: Guerlain L’Heure Bleue (I guess I don’t need to name the brand do I?) I wore a French blue top today and so I *had* to wear L’Heure Bleue. Also, expected to be 90 here and I wanted to see if Mals was right that LHB would work in warm weather. So far so good!

    LOVED the video. Wow! The soundtrack of high school. I hope I’m not the only one here who knew all of the lyrics! :-)

    • perthgirl says:

      I find I only wear LHB in warm weather- it just isn’t the same in the cool, a bit flat on me.

      • Rappleyea says:

        This did bloom nicely in the heat without suffocating me (humid and 90). Vol de Nuit is another that I like when it’s warmer for the bloom. In cold weather, the citrus and green top notes, gorgeous as they are, seem to linger forever.

    • Laurels says:

      I’m in favor of naming the brand. When I first started reading perfume blogs, I often had to do a lot of Googling (which sometimes wasn’t enough, necessitating guessing) to figure out what everyone was talking about. That said, I now sometimes forget to specify the brand.

      • perthgirl says:

        When I first started reading perfume blogs it was a lot of guesswork and google, but it didn’t take tooo long to learn the lingo. I think one of the blogs even had a perfumista translation guide for all those abbreviations and terms like ‘lemming’.. It was a fun education :)

      • Rappleyea says:

        Laurels and Perthgirl – years ago now when I started here, worse than not naming the brand, was all of the initials used, e.g. LHB for L’Heure Bleue. That might be okay for a Guerlain or a Chanel, but all of the smaller niche brands which I had never heard of?!? I still get stumped sometimes.

      • Robin says:

        There is some stuff here, but it’s not been updated lately:

        http://www.nstperfume.com/2008/04/25/a-perfumista-lexicon/

  37. tomate farcie says:

    I don’t plan ever. . .today I’m wearing Bombay Bling and if I do say so myself it was a perfect choice!

    • Laurels says:

      You smell delightful!

  38. perthgirl says:

    I wore Armani Prive Ambre Oriental to work, then Memoir in the evening. No planning involved at all- I had to get up at 4am for work, it was freezing, and amber seemed a good choice. And they were both my first wearings of this winter which helped me decide on them

  39. aimiliona says:

    Osmanthus Oolong, which really does smell like tea. Complete spur-of-the-moment.

  40. Parley says:

    I started out wearing byredo seven veils, which is mildly gag-inducing – at least in the first stage when it’s sweet yet carroty and kinda spicy. Fairly awful. It wears off rather quickly. I got a gang of byredo spray samples at a department store and I have found them all rather nice except this one. Naturally I sprayed with abandon and smelled horrible I’m sure. During lunch I tried on Elizabeth Arden sunflowers. Ghastly. Strident, cheap, in a bad-artificial floral way. Smells like a hand cream my mother used – atrix? And wears like iron, naturally. Does not go away with soap and water. Awful scent day! I’ll wear something objectively lovely tomorrow to make up for smelling like rotten carrots and screechy opaque atrix on steroids. Amouage something? I’ve a couple of samples to try…

    • perthgirl says:

      Amouage will surely make the badness go away :)

    • Rappleyea says:

      Oh, you poor thing! There are only a few fragrances that are totally gag-inducing for me: one is Byredo’s Pulp – beware if you haven’t tried it. From your descriptions, I don’t think you will like it. It traumatized me enough that I never tried another from that house!

      Another is Sunflowers. Your description is very apt. Miss Kitty, who used to post here, and I would even label other fragrances which had a similar screechy smell as having the DSN, Dreaded Sunflower Note.

      If I were you, I wouldn’t sample anything new tomorrow; I’d wear my very favorite perfume to make up for your experience today.

  41. Laila says:

    My first pool day this year (nearby park), I am a pool junkie! (as well as a garden, fragrance, library, and baseball junkie). Floating on my back, blue sky above, blue water beneath – weightless! – the essence of freedom for me. Post sun and swim, showered and lotioned with a variety of monoi products, then spritzed with Yves Rocher’s Monoi eau des Vahines edt. I’ve seen comments on reviews of Guerlain’s Terracotta Le Parfum comparing the inexpensive Vahines (tiare, ylang-ylang, coconut, vanilla but no orange blossom) favorably to the beautiful Terracotta, so rather than pursue what appears to be an extremely elusive scent, I shall be content with my Vahines.

    While SOTD depends somewhat upon my mood, it’s also influenced by what-I’m-doing, what-I’m-wearing, what’s-going-on-outside-my-window that day so, yes, I usually do plan my fragrance. For my book groups, I take special delight in wearing a fragrance – and sometimes an article of clothing or an accessory – that subtly reflects the scents (or sense) – of the book we’ve read. Usually, no one notices but, for me, it’s a secret delight!

  42. CM says:

    I’m wearing Fate (again) – I usually try to decide what perfume to put on as I’m doing my hair/makeup. I toggled between Dia and Fate today.

    However, I’m now spritzing L’eau a la folie (Pdn) as I walk out the door!

  43. hajusuuri says:

    SOTD = Prada No. 2 Oeillet (underapplied today but will go over the top tomorrow even though I really want to start practicing for fruity Friday.)

    I do normally plan ahead, at least a day ahead; however, these SOTD polls are making me re-evaluate my advanced choice!

  44. nozknoz says:

    For a while, I had certain outfits reserved for certain strong or long-lasting perfumes, such as Etro Messe de Minuit. Of course, I’d match colors and scents. I like to wear SSS Tabac Aurea with a fuzzy orange and gold sweater, for example. Nothing like that currently, though.

  45. Laurels says:

    I usually plan a day or two ahead, but often change my mind. SOTD is Guerlain Vol de Nuit (thanks to the lovely AnnS for the swap), which was quiet enough for my appointment with my allergist this afternoon, and is now long gone. Still mulling over my SOTN. Phoenix Botanicals Night Bloom? Maybe something heavier while it’s still chilly at night.

  46. bookwyrmsmith says:

    Wore
    EA Green Tea as it’s fairly inoffensive and I had the shower gel in the bathroom . Wanted inoffensive today as first meeting with new incoming management to the store I work at. New head manager and a fifth key holder. They both seem fairly nice, but I probably will have to get a second job or a new one altogether as work hours will likely be few and far between after this week.

      I’m sorry to hear that you might lose your job. I’m sending positive job vibes your way. Are those LDS keys (had not heard the term before)?

        The managers each have a front door key – thus key holder position. All on the management level get priority for hours when making the weekly schedule. Base minimum for the week is 163 hours ,often we’ll get ( or use ) 176-184 but that still doesn’t break down to very many shifts at my level.
        Head manager gets 40, 2 FT managers 35 each, and 2 PT managers will probably get 15-25 each. I’m one of around six associates who’ll have the rest of the hours divied up between us. Likely each of us will get one shift a week or every other week. Unless we are activated on an on call shift.
