It’s “I really shouldn’t have” Friday! Our community project for today: wear a fragrance you shouldn’t have bought, you shouldn’t wear, or shouldn’t ? Thanks go to Katrina for the idea, and I hope I didn’t completely mangle her original concept.
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 Hermès Jour D’Hermès. I really shouldn’t have bought a 50 ml bottle the same day I smelled it. I do like it, very much, and every time I wear it I’m reminded that I ought to wear it more often. But I don’t reach for it (or really, any one perfume) often enough to justify more than a 15 ml travel size, and of course just 2 years later they came out with the Jour D’Hermès Absolu, which would have been my preference.
Reminder: on 5/14 we’re celebrating Stevie Wonder’s birthday (a day late…he turns 71 on Thursday). Tell us your favorite Stevie Wonder song and wear the fragrance to match.
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.
Note: top image shows detail from the Hermès Savana Dance surfboard (yesterday’s image was the longboard) which was $9,350 but is out of stock. It came with “an aroma-infused anti-slip wax, developed by Hermès’ Artistic Director of Perfumes – Christine Nagel. The scent was inspired by the liveliness of the ocean spray with a note of juniper berry and pear granita”). You can still get the pattern in a scarf or shawl.
