Perfume Chat Room, July 29

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 29, and we are on our way north to New England! I’m eager to have at least some cooler nights, if not days. And the lake we will visit has loons!

I’ve been wearing Hermés’ Un Jardin sur le Nil almost daily; it’s a tonic in the hot humid mugginess where I live. Do you have a fallback fragrance that just works for you in a particular season?

  1. Have a great trip! We are having another party tomorrow – 30+ players and families from western PA who will be freshman football players at Case Western with my son. Then we have 10 days before he moves in and starts camp. Time flies! One of my go-to year round perfumes is Nicolaï Fig-Tea. In the summer I like Atelier Pacific Lime as a dumb reach. But I don’t feel like I repeat a lot – too many choices, I feel like I’m neglecting something else if I repeat.

  2. 4711 splashed on from the fridge recently. Others are not being worn at present. I’m still providing care for my frail, very elderly mum & now DH is being investigated for a lump he found & I don’t want any of my loved scents to be tainted with the memories of this time. I have bought a 50ml bottle of new Clarins Eau Extraordinaire. It’s lightly fruity, lightly floral, lightly herbal & lightly green, you get the idea. It has little sillage, lasts only an hour or two on skin, a little longer on clothing but is totally unobtrusive. If, when these stressors are over, I cannot wear it I can gift it or send it into the wild FTGH.
