Welcome to the Friday 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 7, and my last post (“Notes on Notes: Galbanum“) was the 700th post I’ve made on this blog! It is also Good Friday today, and I’m really looking forward to Easter Sunday. All three of our kids will be home this weekend, and I’ll make our usual festive holiday dinner: midday, after church, with roast lamb, asparagus with Hollandaise sauce, parsnips, potatoes, and some other veg (probably Brussels sprouts or peas). Believe it or not, my children who are all in their 20s have requested Easter baskets again, lol. I’m happy to oblige. Several of my roses have started to bloom, and they smell wonderful.
This weekend also marks our 33rd wedding anniversary! My husband is the best and nicest man I know. I love him dearly, and I feel lucky every day that we found each other.
Happy Easter, to all who celebrate it! We’ll go to church on Sunday morning; I even have a new dress I might wear. I usually wear a hat, too. I haven’t decided on a fragrance yet, but I’ve been enjoying a spring purchase: a tester of Jour d’Hermès parfum. It is just gorgeous, so that may be my SOTD on Easter Sunday. Do you have any plans?
