I haven't been much of a perfume wearer.
Except for that one year in 1982 when I couldn't stop spritzing
some sort of pink bottled baby something or other all over my room.
I think I walked through it one too many times
and that explains most of the memory loss I experience today.
with a little help of course, from some anti-perspirant which I don't feel I need to keep a "Secret".
That is...until I came across this little beauty, fresh Hesperides, thanks to my Cool Sister in Toronto.
This is not a floral scent.
I hate florals.
I seldom use the word hate.
It's just so strong.
But this is one time I can tell you I do hate them.
I'm usually a musky oil kind of gal.
I'm not talking your lumberjack special,
but rather a sexy, spicy, soft overtone.
That's why this little bottle has surprised me more than I can say.
It is the scent of grapefruit.
And I can't get enough of it.
It just makes me feel so darn fresh,
and bright eyed,
and bushy tailed.
When I found it at Sephora, the perfume was all sold out.
The only thing I could purchase was the gift pack.
Isn't it pretty?
So pretty I can't bear to unwrap it.
I may have to be buried with it.
The picture does look a little coffin like doesn't it?
There that's better.
It just says it all.
I have to admit when I wear this,
I feel younger.
As though I've been freshly squeezed.
A little citrus pick me up is a great way to start your morning.
That is... unless you really hate grapefruit, which I would understand.
See above information concerning florals.
I wish this screen could be a scratch and sniff.
because if it were?
You would be a believer... and perhaps, have a strong urge to move to Florida.
Unfortunately I can't send you all a beautiful bottle of this sweet scent,
so the best I can do is tell you to:
Go and rub a big old grapefruit behind your ears and knees, and along your wrists,
and if you want to go crazy? Under your arms too (our little Secret I promise).
And just see how it makes you feel.
Have I ever steered you wrong?
PS This post is strictly between you and me.
fresh and their grapefruit lovely ways,
have no idea that the womenfolk over at Bungalow'56 are citrus-ly inclined : )
PSS Thought I would try my hand at some product style photography for Sweet Shot Tuesday. I was happy with the photos seeing as how they were taken at night, under terrible fluorescent lighting.
