I’m waiting for the water for my tea to boil, and I can’t stop smelling my wrist: I’m wearing Reminiscence Patchouli, which is the first good surprise in 2009. I got a sample from Vittoria Profumi with my latest order and I hadn’t tried it yet (they always send me so many good things to try it takes ages to use them up). Maybe I thought it would be too plain, not original enough. Now I’m asking myself if I’ve ever tried patchouli so far. Maybe I have never tried such a lovely patchouli for me, my nose and my skin. It is very sweet at the beginning, then it developes in more “smoky” notes, but still very warm and pleasant.
It makes me feel like wearing a smooth ruffled silk blouse, maybe in a neutral shade such as champagne or mauve, and a soft huge handknit cardigan.
I’m drinking a Twinings Lapsanch Souchong tea, “a golden tea with a distinctive smoky character” in honour of it.
I had some good, satisfactory shopping this week-end and I’m taking pics as soon as possible. There’s also going to be a wedding brainsorming very soon, my bf and I are invited to a wedding in less than 2 months so I need to make up my mind.
