Readers of my blog will probably have fathomed by now that I am not naturally a gregarious party animal. However, I do enjoy socialising with close friends, and last night was spent with some good friends of ours.
There were about five couples, all with young kids of similar ages, and the evening was great fun. We played a murder mystery game, which was hilariously confusing, yet fun, and our host served us plate after plate of lovely food, including canapes, oysters, foie gras, spicy chicken and a lovely traditional new year French tart. I think we got to bed after 3am, and this includes our children, who were totally shattered today!
It was a lovely way to end the old year and start the new one. I wore Enchanted Forest, which felt quite appropriate, as when we arrived at our friends, we were served champagne with cassis. Cassis, as most of you will know, is the French word for blackcurrant, one of the primary notes in Enchanted Forest. I don't quite know what to make of the perfume yet. I do know that on my skin, particularly the first hour of development, the blackcurrant notes are very prominent and realistic. I need to wear the perfume more to gain a proper impression, particularly out of party mode, when I can think about, sniff and gauge the development in a calmer setting.
