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 Friday, June 26. The best thing I’ve been able to do in the past week was to visit a botanical garden, suitably masked and socially distancing, where they have an expanded exhibition of gigantic topiaries featuring characters from “Alice in Wonderland”. It was so nice to get outside to an actual destination space, beyond my usual walks around the neighborhood. The topiaries were amazing and I plan to share some photos when I do my overdue review of 4160 Tuesdays’ Red Queen, as she is one of the new topiary pieces.
Have you been able to take part in any new activity this week, within safety parameters? Or have you done or acquired anything new related to fragrance? My SOTD is semi-vintage Coty Emeraude, handed down from my late mother-in-law. It’s not the really old vintage, it’s the tall slender bottle with a green band on the neck and a crown-shaped top. What’s your SOTD?
