Perfume Chat Room, April 30

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, April 30 — the very last day of April! Where I live, the April showers have already brought many flowers, including my beloved David Austin English Roses, which are so very fragrant. They will continue into May. Tomorrow, I plan to renew my annual “May Marathon” series of blog posts! This year, the series will be a “May Melange Marathon” with a focus on the May flowers that April showers famously bring. You can expect posts about some new muguet fragrances, some new (to me, at least) rose fragrances, and my favorite green fragrances. Please join the marathon in the comments!

I should note that a blogging marathon is as close as I will ever get to a marathon other than as a spectator. I really, really don’t like to run, though I do enjoy long walks (and my family says I walk very briskly).

What are your plans for May, fragrant or otherwise?

  1. Will follow your blog marathon. I have a week of staycation ahead, so I am wafting Absolue Pour Le Soir today. We will do a walk later, plus some cooking and I hope to get started on my sewing projects.

    • Ooh, you smell wonderful! I hope you’re doing well. I plan to spend much of this weekend gardening, as the weather should be nice and I have a whole new group of seedlings to plant out, as well as self-sown hellebores and hardy begonias to dig up as a gift for a friend. Enjoy your week!


  2. I will be limping behind you (literally and figuratively speaking): my sciatica was misbehaving recently, so not only no running (or sleeping!) but I’m behind reading blogs from my Reading List or doing my own posts. But I’m getting there! 🙂
