Here is a second version of my new Scent Diary feature, with a different format from the first. Please let me know which one you prefer!
Wearing: Botrytis Ginestet. The combination of warm honey and bright white floral notes has been perfectly matched to this recent slew of sunny-but-freezing winter days.
Reading: Springiette, the cutest webcomic about a lady-ninja and her pet sushi ever. The fact that it is most likely the only webcomic about a lady-ninja and her pet sushi does not in any way detract from its cuteness.
Watching: Star Trek: The Original Series Season 2, now that my beloved little brother Buzz has finally gotten Netflix working on his Wii. Last night’s episode was “Obsession”, in which Kirk goes all Captain Ahab up in here and starts tracking a gaseous cloud that smells like honey. Buzz and I agree that this honey cloud is quite possibly the lamest villain of all time, with the possible exception of Team Rocket.
Lusting After: Some CB I Hate Perfume Burning Leaves, which is on sale at The Crushed Violet. I’ve never tried it before, but I love smelling burnt anything (coffee, marshmallows, halloumi cheese). I would also cut a distant relative for this “Bros” shirt, which depicts the epic bromance between authors Jules Vernes and Edgar Allen Poe.
Cheering For: My fabulous reader breathesgelatin, who is getting her brand new perfume blog up and running this weekend! I’ll update this post with a link as soon as she’s ready.
