Hypnotic Poison (Dior 1998) is spicy, sensual and modern. It’s quite amazing actually… It’s fresh and clean, yet warm, enveloping and sweet. There’s also a delightful sharpness that melts into a hot, fascinating almond glow in the drydown. I quite like it…
Top notes: apricot, plum and coconut. Middle notes: tuberose, jasmine, lily-of-the-valley, rose, Brazilian rosewood, and caraway. Base notes: sandalwood, almond, vanilla and musk.
Yesterday was lovely. After a family memorial on Saturday and a difficult last week I was fortunate enough to spend yesterday hiking through a forest and on bluffs overlooking the Puget Sound with my first cousin, his wonderful wife, their great little son, my husband and a good friend of my cousin’s from college. It was absolutely delightful to spend time with them all. They’re very loving, charming and authentic people.
When we walked through the forest there was one spot that had this minty, mossy green scent. It’s so different than what you’d find in Minnesota. It was romantic, elegant and a very pleasant discovery. I love being outside in nature out here.
More on Wednesday, as usual… Sorry about last week.
