Pre-Fall 2022 or September’s most worn, because I dove into my fall scents too early, and I had to dial it back, enjoy the gorgeous weather we had, and wear my fresher scents. September is the worst. There’s a lot going on, not enough rest, so sometimes it’s nice to close my eyes, empty my brain, and just smell my perfume.
I love all of these, and after sampling a million other things, I love them even more!
Chanel Bois des Iles. I know it’s called Bois des Iles, but it’s really the Ylang Ylang that shines for me when I’ve been wearing it this month. The ylang ylang and sandalwood combo really reminds me of my Samsara edt. It didn’t hit me until I wore Samsara the other night, and then wore Bois des Iles the next morning. I like Bois des Iles better for having that Chanel refinement, and a long sandalwood finish.
Serge Lutens Datura Noir. Beach vacation via bitter almond and tuberose, this got me through some long days. I keep putting it away, and then I take it out again to have it in the rotation, and now it’s just staying out.
Guerlain L’Heure Bleue edp. I’ve decided I like it better than the edt because I can use less. I like this bottle design too…
Eau de Jane… my friend Jane Daly’s perfume… I’ve gone through 2 samples, influenced others to get it, and now I have a bottle of my own. Look at the dent I’ve already made. When I wear this, I’m cool, calm, and collected. Nothing can ruffle my feathers. It’s a dewy green rose-carnation-vetiver, fresh and clean.
L’Artisan Parfumeur Coeur de Vetiver Sacre. Green tea that’s also cool. It lived in my work fridge this past month. Of everything I’ve mentioned, this is the one that I’m going to put away for now because I think I’ve had enough of it. Tell me what spoke to you this September… or which one of these you like the best.
