Cachet by Prince Matchabelli is a very 1970’s does 1920’s fragrance (Prince Matchabelli 1970), especially at first.  It’s unisex, woody, aromatic and a bit heavy.  It begins with a thick, heady burst of strong aldehydes, a bit reminiscent of Chanel No. 5.  And then, as it continues into the drydown it becomes a perfect 70’s, polyester wearing, patchouli, amber, vetiver and musk radiant olfactory disco dance.  In the late drydown it’s a sweet, powdery musk.  Very nice.

Top notes: aldehydes, green grass, spices and galbanum.  Middle notes: patchouli, orris root, jasmine, vetiver and rose. Base notes: are leather, amber, musk, civet and oakmoss.


I’ve started running again.  Last year I was running with the intention of participating in a marathon, but then my heart started beating irregularly.  It was beating irregularly this winter too…  It’s only started being “normal” in the last couple of months.  I’ve been getting more sleep, and while it’s been a crazy spring, I’ve actually been less anxious than this past winter, so my heart is doing well again.  And, thankfully, the irregular beats I do have are benign anyway according to my cardiologist (they’re just scary).

But anyway, I’m feeling comfortable enough to run again.  And this weekend it was glorious to finally be able to do it…

My goal is to lose ten pounds.  That would put me back where I was, roughly, when I was at my healthiest, before I got pregnant, a few years back.  Funny thing, due to the stress of the last month or so I’ve actually lost a good 5-10 lbs. that were stubbornly clinging on already, so I’m feeling optimistic…


I hope you’ve had a pleasant weekend.  🙂
