Tuesday scent of the day 5/3

coffee beans

Tuesday, and where I live, the umpteenth grey drizzly day in a row. I’m getting a little cranky about Spring 2016. Hope it’s nicer where you are, and do tell us what fragrance you’re wearing.

I’m not wearing any proper fragrance at the moment, but I am wearing Alba Botanica Kona Coffee After-Sun Lotion. Mmmm, coffee. I’m drinking tea, though — Harney’s Genmaicha.

Reminder: on 5/6, wear a fragrance from Tom Ford, if you have one…

Monday scent of the day 5/2

violet

Ack, it’s another Monday! This week is special for me because I’m celebrating two anniversaries: ten years ago this week, Angela and Kevin joined Now Smell This, with Searching for the Holy Grail (Angie) and Nile Lily candle by Pacifica ~ home fragrance report (Kevin). Since I could not possibly keep Now Smell This going without them, I hope you’ll join me in thanking them for sticking around all these years! And do tell us what fragrance you’re wearing.

I’m in Lush Kerbside Violet, which I (finally) purchased at the local meetup we had at King of Prussia mall on Saturday. There were ten of us, and yes, we did a little damage at Hermès as well. We’ll have another meetup poll in September, by the way.

Lazy weekend poll ~ Sense of Smell Day & May Day 2016

lotv-2s

It’s Sense of Smell Day (and Alice B Toklas‘ birthday) on Saturday and May Day (don’t forget to wear lily of the valley!) on Sunday. We are celebrating with 5 questions. As always, answer as many or as few as you like, or just talk about something else entirely.

1. What fragrance are you wearing today?

2. What’s your favorite smell in nature?

3. What’s your favorite man-made (but not perfume) smell?

4. What do you think is the best fragrance released so far in 2016?

5. Tell us about some wonderful thing you’ve discovered this year. It can be anything: a movie, a beauty product, a time-saving device, a fitness program, a book — really, anything…

Friday scent of the day 4/29

Thierry Mugler Spring 2016

Ah, Friday! Our community project for this week: wear one of your “top 10 of spring” fragrances (unless it’s fall where you are, in which case wear one of your “top 10 of fall” scents).

What fragrance did you pick? As always, do chime in with your scent of the day even if you’re not participating in the community project.

I went with Thierry Mugler Oriental Express, from Erin’s Top 10 list. It’s perfect for the almost-but-not-quite-spring weather we’re having here today.

Reminder: on 5/6, wear a fragrance from Tom Ford, if you have one…
