Friday scent of the day 10/15 :: Now Smell This


Happy Friday and happy Global Handwashing Day! It’s also Sir Pelham Grenville Wodehouse‘s birthday. Our community project for today: wear a perfume for Jeeves OR Wooster. If you have never seen or read anything about Jeeves and Wooster, pick a favorite comic character from any medium, and scent that character.

What fragrance did you pick? As always, do chime in with your scent of the day even if you’re not participating in the community project.

I’m in Astier de Villatte Commune de Paris 1871, which doesn’t really address the cp proper — I’m not assigning it to Jeeves or Wooster in particular — but if you ignore the name, it’s a decent way to conjure up the series as a whole, maybe even the entire Wodehouse universe, covering what Kevin called…

…a lovely scented mix of country-walk (lemon and bergamot leading to lavender-coumarin-moss) and cozy parlor — a smooth benzoin-patchouli accord combining with scents I’ll describe as “candy dish” and powder puff.

Reminder: on 10/22, wear a fragrance that evokes one of Pantone’s picks for the Autumn/Winter 2021/2022 NYFW Color Palette. (If you like, click through to the article and pick your fragrance based on the color name or description rather than the color itself, as in “Leprechaun is a wondrous green hue emblematic of the mythical imps featured in Irish folklore” or “Friendly and joyful, an optimistic yellow offering the promise of a sunny day.”)

And for those of you who like to plan ahead, see Scent of the day ~ Friday community projects 2021, where I’ll try to always have the next five or six weeks mapped out in advance.
