It’s been over 100 F three days in a row, and today’s peak was 106 F on my outdoor porch thermometer. We always have a few of these heat waves each summer.
I worked a bit on Lieu de Reves yesterday and Gardenia Musk today. I spent several months working on each of these last winter but didn’t finish. I’ll give more details as I get closer to the end and am ready to send out some testers. I’ve had quite a few inquiries about Reves so I want to finish that one before fall.
One of the traveling musk packages will be on its way to the third person on Wed. The other has already stalled so if you’re in line for that one I may need to switch you over to the one that’s making progress. Will do my best.
On the gardenia theme, I tried a squirt of Tom Ford’s Velvet Gardenia today. People seem to love or hate this scent, either finding it the most accurate gardenia they’ve ever smelled or saying it’s a scrubber that smells harsh. I’m afraid it was too harsh to my nose. I think some people may be more sensitive to and/or just averse to some of the stronger floral chems in this. I didn’t need to scrub it off but won’t need to retry it as it just isn’t right for me. We’re all unique though and I’m sure it works for many people.
Back to my gardenia project, which is a softer, creamier version with gardenia, jasmine, soft creamy woods, and musk…
