Happy Friday and happy Guy Fawkes Day! And a very happy 61st to Tilda Swinton. Our community project for today: wear Like This, or any other Etat Libre d’Orange fragrance, if you have one. If you don’t, or if you’re not in the mood for Etat Libre d’Orange (or if you just wore Like This for the Pumpkin Spice project), do something else. You could listen to Tilda Swinton read the Rumi poem that inspired the fragrance, and choose something based on that?
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 wearing the first Etat Libre d’Orange fragrance I came across this morning, You or Someone Like You. It does not remind me of Tilda Swinton. If it helps anyone, I was just reminded this morning that she wore Penhaligon’s Bluebell for 25 years before she collaborated on Like This.
Reminder: on 11/12 we’re doing Dealer’s Choice, edition 5…propose a theme for a Friday community project, and wear a fragrance that fits your theme.
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.
