It’s Tuesday, and we have a bunch of birthdays: Edgar Allan Poe, Paul Cézanne, Patricia Highsmith, Julian Barnes, Janis Joplin, Edwidge Danticat. Plus a very happy 75th to Dolly Parton! What fragrance are you wearing?
For The Little Red Hen, which made an indelible impression on me as a child in the Little Golden Book edition, I’m wearing Frederic Malle En Passant. (The wheat note in En Passant recalls the bread baked by the little red hen.) Tea at the moment is Upton Zi Xiang Organic.
Reminder: 1/22 will be Fairy Tale Friday. Name a favorite fairy tale or fable, and wear a perfume that fits your choice. Suggested by therabbitsflower. (Wikipedia has a decent list of fairy tales if you need some inspiration; plus see the entry for fables.)
And for those of you who like to plan ahead, see Scent of the day ~ Friday community projects 2021, where I’ll try to always have the next five or six weeks mapped out in advance.
Note: the porcelain Grimms’ Fairy Tales tea set for 4 by Reutter is €65.
