So it is Thursday already, and I have not reported anything for almost a week. Why not?
Well, for one, I’m writing. I mean, srsly. I have one short story going and am still working on Bright As Day (reworking stuff for point of view, in particular).
For two, I’ve been spending time on Youtube, while writing, with all kinds of screaming guitar music like Jonny Lang and Kenny Wayne Shepherd (wait, can there even BE a redneckier name, unless it’s Stevie Ray Vaughn?) and the Black Crowes, plus Gavin Degraw, plus clips from every Tom Hardy movie I can find.
For three, I’ve been cleaning out nooks and crannies in the house and doing laundry.
And for four, writing some more.
So here’s your perfume reportage for the past week, which has contained weather veering wildly from mid-50sF down to thirty degrees cooler than that: Parfums MDCI Promesse de l’Aube (a true floral beauty), MDCI Enlevement au Serail (beautiful and extremely jasmine-skanky, ergo Not Very Me), Vagabond Prince Enchanted Forest (see my review here), Maison Francis Kurkdjian Lumiere Noire pour Femme, L’Arte di Gucci (the longing for L’Arte stemming from the wearing of Lumiere Noire, actually), and scaaaaads of Amouage Memoir Woman (but not all at once, because Bystanders Might Perish – no, spread out over the week with multiple wearings).
