I’m back at Yale, thanks to Megabus. The air here is hot but we just had one of those fat-dropped summer rains. This is definitely one of my favorite times of year- if not my favorite holiday (we’re not religious).
But I think the goddess Ostara sounds cool. It amuses me how Christian holidays are always placed over preexisting pagan ones.
I considered not doing a post today at all, because I’m tired and I’m mentally prepping myself for the school week and for lots of ballroom practice ahead of our Spring Show on Friday. And also because my easy option- answering the NST weekend poll– is perfume-based, and I feel guilty writing about perfume two days in a row. Because it’s very much a niche interest of mine. But I at last have decided that a post is better than no post, and if I want to write it I should, rather than worrying about imaginary anonymous displeased people.
Here are the questions:
“Happy Easter, everyone! It’s time to fill your (fantasy) Easter basket:
1. You can pick one perfume, new or old: what is it?
2. And you can have one other scented product (a candle, a body lotion, anything): what is it?
3. Your favorite candy?
4. And any random present you’d like the Easter bunny to bring you.”
Here are my answers:
- Rose de Nuit by Serge Lutens? That’s the most expensive fragrance o my wish list. I think if I were going seasonally I would say Amoureuse by Perfumes DelRae. This is great Amoureuse weather.
- I’ve almost burnt out my embarrassingly basic Bath and Body Works candle (a gift from my uncle). It’s Pumpkin Pecan Waffle. I think I would choose a replacement in the form of Miller Harris’ L’Air de Rien candle- one of my favorite scents.
- I would like to be gifted the next book that I’m going to read and love. I keep getting ahold of a lot of misses and I’d really like to have a brilliant reading experience, because it’s been just a bit too long. I don’t know what book it would be, but it would be the perfect one for the moment.
