The week that was

Hello, fellow perfume lovers. It was a busy week for me, one in which I wore perfume, but none particularly stood out, possibly because I was too distracted by other matters to focus fully on the fumes.

I am excited because my sister is coming to stay with us for three weeks. She is flying in on Sunday, and I haven't seen her for two years. It's easy to take family for granted sometimes, but in my case, the fact that I only get to see some of my family so infrequently helps me to appreciate what and who I have got, most of the time.

So on the perfume front I tried two Miller Harris perfumes new to Fenwick in Tunbridge Wells, Fleurs de Sel and Terre d'Iris, and new to me too. I found both of them interesting enough that I want to try them again when I am more focused. Fleurs de Sel in particular struck me as being unusual, in a good way. Herbal, slightly leathery, with a hint of moss, suffused with a hint of salty, slightly humid air. I also wore Kingston Ferry, by Olympic Orchids, which I've written about before, I think. Like most of the other perfumes I've tried by this house, it too is somewhat unusual and certainly like nothing else I've tried elsewhere.

The week after next I have a holiday coming out, which will be spent with my sister and my family. Nothing major planned, but will aim to relax and spend time with loved ones.

Have a good weekend, friends in fumes, and let me know what you've been doing this week, if you have the time or inclination.

  1. So happy that you are able to have some time w/family!

    Mid-week, I returned from driving my son and his gf back from Rhode Island (they don't drive) in a 26 ft U Haul truck. What an adventure. Glad to be home, and back to my regular routine, and so pleased that my son is now back in town.

  2. Wonderful that you get to see your sister. I'm very close with my brother, and it's always a treat when we get to spend some time together. I hope you have a great time!

  3. Enjoy your sister's visit! And it is interesting that you have mentioned Fleurs de Sel, as I was thinking of that just the other day in connection with Brittany and how I really should try it again.
