Random Seattle Perfumes Revealed
Here are the perfumes I packed for our trip:
Karma by Lush
Vintage Patchouly by DSH
Dune by Dior
Black Aoud by Montale
Iris Silver Mist by Serge Lutens
Notre Flore Iris by L'Occitane
Trish McEvoy Sexy 4
We're only in Seattle for three days, and so far, I haven't worn any of them. Suddenly, it seems morally wrong to wear perfume on the plane. And interrupting the smells of the city with a frantic application of perfume once I get here just feels...stupid. Who would want to miss the sillage of fish, brats and pasta mixed with the smell of the freshly cut flowers at Pike Place Market, which results in the aroma of piss? Once I understood its components, the scent was suddenly charming.
As always, I am delighted to be here and the same thought floods my mind each time I fly into the city, right before we land: 'This is where I belong.'
Tomorrow, we will celebrate the Fourth of July in Seattle (if you also celebrate this holiday, I wish you a wonderful day, too). Which perfume do you recommend?
