Talisman eau Transparente


Unisex, bold and serene, Talisman (Balenciaga 1996) is an airy ylang-ylang and osmanthus.  Litchi and freesia are present but not warm or particularly engaging.  This is the sort of scent best worn on a hot day when ice cubes are little luxuries.  It’s beautiful but chilly…

Notes: litchi, freesia, osmanthus and ylang-ylang.

I don’t know what to say about today particularly.  There were moments when it was bright and then at times I wondered where so many things were headed.

I wish I could sit with The Handsome Gentleman (now abbreviated as Handsome) somewhere quiet, alone and absorb the moment…  I wonder if that’s even possible.  I have this dream of resting on some shady green lawn, and just staring up at the sky with him.  I know that sounds so cliche and sappy, but wouldn’t that be wonderful?  Well, it would be for me anyway.

And, did the world used to feel so much more real and alive years and years ago?  I remember when I was a kid the summers were more supple and everything felt grounded to an unchangeable, solid core.  I don’t think it was just an illusion of childhood, although I suppose that could be part of it.

I remember, around this time of the year, being outside with the sound of crickets and the humid air, imagining myself all grown-up with some beautiful man having a romance of some sort.  It seemed like it would take forever to be old enough to do anything exciting.  Yet sadly, of course, what all those adults said back then was true.  Growing older is a rather fast process actually.  And now, in my 30’s, I wish I could go back for just a short while.  It would be amazing to be with my parents when they were young again and remember things I’ve forgotten.   But, I’m still hoping for those moments I imagined years ago to come true someday…

Anyway, I bought more perfume.  La Petit Robe Noire Couture is being discontinued soon so I purchased a small bottle of that.  I also am considering other various fragrances…

And, I feel like I should mention, my son is doing a lot better right now.  He’s such an amazing little person…
