Firstly, let's get through the boring-ness that is Daisy (Marc Jacobs). I had to re-apply three hours after initial spritz. The slight grapefruit at opening was pleasant, and the mid/base was nicer, but in general this scent is boring, blah, and waste of my test day.
Sel de Vetiver (The Different Company).
This is a perfume I would wear when I looked like this, and the world was my oyster. When I would wear a pomade of bergamot to grease my hair that I found in Woolworths on Euclid Avenue, finding new music, art and literature, and people and lifestyles to explore.
Yesterday in the afternoon, my 21 year old son stopped by. He allowed me to put some of it on him, and when we went shopping together, I would stop and ask him if I could sniff. It was really lovely on him, but alas, he has no interest in scent and given his personality this wouldn't be right for him anyway.
I tested this again this morning - oh how I love this fragrance.
But there's too much sadness in it for me to wear it these days - the emotions it evokes of the loss of youth and my exuberance and naivete.
But, if I only could go back thirty years with this perfume in hand and on body, I would have ruled the world! (can you tell I'm a little PMSy today?)
