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, July 17. The pandemic continues to surge here in the USA, to the alarm and chagrin of most Americans. Not enough, apparently, as we saw too many of our fellow citizens strolling around the beach town we recently visited with few masks in sight. That doesn’t worry me too much outside, in a strong sea breeze and sunlight, but it is very concerning to see older people, who are at more risk, blithely dining indoors with no protection. We were glad to see that virtually all businesses had their staff wearing masks and most had polite signs at least requesting that customers wear “face coverings.” Our state is one of those that won’t allow local governments to mandate masks.
However, we still enjoyed our vacation by the sea, since we were able to avoid almost all people entirely and sit on the beach under our canopy almost all day and well into the evening. I’ve been wearing Amouage’s Beach Hut Woman regularly, and I like it a lot! Has anyone here tried it? How has your week gone? Any particular scents of the day we should discuss? Also, I’m delighted to say that this week marked my fifth anniversary using WordPress, which means that this blog is almost exactly five years old! Wow, how time has flown!
