What I Wore This Week

img_6388

Hi, everyone! I hope you’re all doing well. It’s Memorial Day weekend here in the US but it definitely doesn’t feel like a holiday weekend. My plans are to get out for a walk and maybe order a Starbucks iced latte, which I haven’t done in two months! Much more low-key than usual.

In fragrance news, I purchased my first full bottle of 2020: Sisley’s Eau de Campagne. Sisley had a sale back in April. I’ve never really known them to offer 20% off, so I jumped on it to purchase Eau de Campagne. It took 3 weeks to arrive due to covid precautions. I had almost forgotten about it! Fortunately, my little bottle arrived safe and sound, and I’m pleased with it! It features a stunning tomato leaf accord, and it really feels like fresh countryside air. It’s exactly what I need right now.

  • Monday & Tuesday: Fidji EDT by Guy Laroche
  • Wednesday: Eau de Campagne by Sisley
  • Thursday: Chanel Cristalle EDT
  • Friday: Timbre EDP by Chris Rusak
  • Saturday: Eau de Campagne again

What did you all wear?

  1. Today I’m wearing Ed Hardy Love and Luck.
    I like the cylindrical box and the illustrations on the box.

  2. I wore Montale White Musk, because I just wanted to smell freshly laundered, but now put MKK over it for something animalic and cosy

  3. I LOVE Eau de Champagne and drained a bottle some time last year…. tomato leaf is an amazing note!! Hooray for a successful purchase!!!
    I finished mowing the lawn and post shower keeping it simple in Neroli essential oil.

    1. Eau de Campagne is lovely! I love my greens 💚

      I’m not wearing anything today but thinking about what I want to wear this week. We’re finally supposed to have really hot weather for the first time this year!

      1. Same here…super hot weather….but I think we are not far from each other ( me in upstate NY).
        Might have already mentioned that my eldest took my Brit parfum. She came yesterday and it smells so good on her. I ordered three more bottles for her ( she still hasn’t grasped the concept of reformulations and discontinuations) for birthday and Christmas presents for the near future.

        1. How nice that she was able to visit! 💛 You’re smart to order backup bottles for her. I hate the current Brit for Her formulation 😩

        2. Hmmm…..now I am wondering if I should have ordered even more back up bottles LOL 🤣
          And I love how autocorrect changed it to eau de Champagne LOL 😂

  4. No I am testing Ava Fleur. Supposed to be a primarily natural perfume. It smells like sweet tuberose. I like it.

    1. I am sick of looking at the word corona right now, so I don’t know if I could wear it at the moment! 😂😩 I hope it smells nice!

      1. Lol!!! I am right there with you!! But I have a box in the basement of random samples and it was the first one I grabbed. Supposed to be an oud scent. Smelled pleasant enough but wore off fast.

  5. Rose oil first thing in the morning. Later will test Fidelis. I have a huge box full of random samples in the basement that need skin time. My summer project is to test all of them LOL 😆

  6. Testing Rose Royale, Hedonist Rose, Pivoine and a sample I can’t quite make out ( Spirit Piccadilly?) which is my favorite of the bunch.

  7. I went a bit crazy testing yesterday. As things faded I tested something new. All in all about twenty samples. I am separating them into different piles to give to family and friends based on everyone’s specific tastes. I didn’t necessarily dislike any but nothing wowed me. I am kind of in a perfume slump I guess. I might just go with my homemade patchouli lotion today post shower. On the plus side my Burberry Brit backups came in. I am saving them in the basement and plan on gifting them to my daughter for her birthday and Christmas. Sorry for the long post…. it’s 1am and I am up with insomnia. Work from home is stressing me out LOL 😂

    1. Wow that is a ton of samples! Lol, we all deal with stress differently. Perfume sampling is a good way coping, I think 😂 It’s Friday so I hope you get some relaxation this weekend!

  8. It’s been very hot again today. I wanted something citrusy and light.
    I wore Guerlain Eau de Cologne Imperiale. Longevity isn’t great but I kept re spraying.

        1. Certainly can. I’ve been looking on All Beauty sale today, can’t remember how much it was !!!!!

  9. I’ve just had another shower and used the new Avon Her Story body lotion and topped off with the perfume on my arms. I got the set of 50mls perfume…body lotion and 10mls handbag size perfume for £12.

      1. Avon are donating over 50% of sales of Her Story to Changing Faces.A UK charity for everyone with a scar,mark or codition that makes them look different . So it’s a worthy cause.

      2. Something seems to have gone wrong with my reply so I will re send it. Maybe it will appear twice…who knows !!!

        1. Lol, typical wordpress!!! 😂😩

          It’s definitely a worthy cause and worth leaving two comments about it 😄

    1. You reminded me that my mom was crazy about His Story. She wore it herself. I found it relatively cheap online. Then it became discontinued and the price skyrocketed. I should have bought back ups.

      1. I’ve only got 3 samles in cute little boxes. It was a special offer, very reasonable price and free postage.
        Violet Ida…. Scherzo…Poiwdered Veil.

        1. It cerainly was. Samantha from I Scent You a Day posted about this offer on her blog. I think it was last year. Not current now though or I would buy another 3.

        2. I love her blog as well. i like that she reviews Avon. I’ve had some good bargains on her reccomendation.
