Welcome to the weekly Perfume Chat Room, perfumistas! I envision this chat room as a weekly drop-in spot online, where readers may ask questions, suggest fragrances, tell others their SOTD, comment on new releases or old favorites, and respond to each other. The perennial theme is fragrance, but we can interpret that broadly. This is meant to be a kind space, so please try not to give or take offense, and let’s all agree to disagree when opinions differ. In fragrance as in life, your mileage may vary! YMMV.
Today is April 10, and it is Good Friday, as well as Passover. Easter may be my favorite holiday of the year, maybe even more than Christmas, which I love, because it happens in the spring when all the flowers are blooming and the weather is usually beautiful where I live, and because it just happens, there isn’t a three-month build-up period. Also, I love chocolate and Easter is THE holiday for chocoholics!
Aside from the necessary solemnity of Good Friday and Passover, Easter is a joyous holiday too. Do any of you fragrance lovers have a special fragrance you’re planning to wear to celebrate it? I love my muguet fragrances, and they are in bloom here right now, so I could go with one of my many lilies of the valley, or I could go with an actual lily fragrance, also some of my favorites. The blue iris are also blooming now, so I could choose an iris-centric scent, or I could play to the chocolate theme and go with a gourmand (unlikely, given my love for florals, but still possible!). For me, it’s a little early to go with roses, even though I have a few blooming now. Share your thoughts about Easter or Passover fragrances, or just your thoughts about any aspect of fragrance! And have a wonderful holiday weekend, at a safe distance of course.
