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, August 7, and it is HOT where I live. We alternate between extreme muggy heat and thunderous downpours of rain. I feel lucky, though, as we haven’t had the downed trees and loss of power that many in the Northeast have suffered this week. What fragrances do you wear in this kind of weather? I’m mostly indoors, working from home during the week, but when I step outside, it’s very humid. And oh, the mosquitoes! Today I’m trying Carthusia’s Fiori di Capri, a very pretty, traditional floral scent, with many different notes arranged in a classic pyramid structure. What is your SOTD? Or what do you prefer when the weather swings between heat and thunderstorms?
