Perfume posts are my absolute favorite to write. My other "scents of the week" posts are catalogued here. Obviously, I'm not very consistent with them, but if I smell something too briefly, I'll just tweet about it, instead. I'm not always looking for a new scent, but if I happen to find one, well...serendipity is a thing, right? And no, I'm not talking about that cheesy rom-com. Perfume is true love, man.
These are a handful of more mainstream scents that I've sniffed recently - not enough for a full week, but hey. I kind of liked them all, more than I thought I would, but each of them has something that prevents me from loving them. And with this collection of full bottles (plus CB I Hate Perfume A Memory of Kindness, recently acquired at Arielle Shoshana), it has to be love. Also, I'm getting tired of musk (all of this week's scents were musky). Sometimes it's well done, and sometimes it's like that scratchy itch at the back of your throat.
Sunday: Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue, edt
Sicilian Citron, Bluebell, Granny Smith Apple, Jasmine Sambac, Bamboo, White Rose, Cedarwood, Amber, Musk.

So that was more like "scents of half the week," I guess. But, exploring Arielle's beautiful store has gotten me in the mood again, and when we got to NYC again next month I'm definitely going to stop in CB I Hate Perfume's Brooklyn studio. And Le Labo, in SoHo. If you're interested, I'll do a post on our visit to Arielle Shoshana, and the scents we explored. What scents have you been dabbling in lately? Anything new for the change of seasons? Or, if the seasons don't change where you are, what motivates you to change up your scents?
