A week from now I’ll be off to France for a week of skiing. I cannot describe how much I am looking forward to a week of some energetic activity, sun, snow and no work. 🙂 I really think I’ve earned my vacation this year.
Anyway, I realized I have a bit of a problem. I have no ide what to take with me (perfume-wise). I know I will take Jo Malone Nutmeg and Ginger because that is my light scent for pretty much every occasion and I think will work great during my snow activities.
But, it will be March and it won’t be that cold (approximately from -3 to 3 degrees Celsius) so now my winter scents are not going to be appropriate because first, they are not designed for strenuous activity (I don’t see most of them in that light anyway) and secondly, they make me feel warm and cuddly and that is not exactly what I will need them to do. I mean, the sun will be shining and it’s going to be pretty warm (in ski terms) and the cuddly needs no explanation. 🙂
But I don’t think my summer scents are appropriate either. I don’t want citrusy light variants for skiing, they somehow feel like they are going to clash with snow. I would like either something sporty, something cristalline-like or white (ChickenF, are you going to suggest Cristalle? – which btw, I still don’t know what it smells like) or something springlike. I’m thinking of taking Santal Blanc as well (it has the white part, besides it’s not too wintery so it might work). Any suggestion will be most welcome. 🙂
I also plan to take something to seduce my boyfriend in the evening 😉 but that is a much easier choice (my Amoureuse and Lyric samples are coming with me – probably some others as well, but I haven’t yet decided which).
And while I’m waiting for the week to pass, some pictures from last year (Les 2 Alpes). That’s me in light blue.
