Things to Love

slow your roll

When it’s time to slow your roll.

It might be because I kinda lost interest in fashion magazines last year, or maybe it’s that I’m perpetually trying to cut extraneous expenses, but somehow I missed the beginning of this roll on perfume thing.

I think it’s always been around, but I only caught on this last birthday when I was gifted a tube of Live in Love by a dear friend. It’s amazing but has gotten even more lovely lately as spring rolls in. The scent is like green trapped in a bottle – three quarters  fresh new leaves and the rest thick syrupy floral – and it’s become an absolute favorite.

I also recently acquired French Lilac from Pacifica in a tube. As a Florida girl, I knew lilac only as a color. It turns out that it’s the most wonderful and fleeting flower of spring. There are no less than five lilac trees that bloom in our neighborhood and you had better believe that I plan my walks around them when they bloom. It’s feminine and exotic (to me) and the blossoms only last a few weeks. It doesn’t quite capture the beauty of a fresh bloom, but since it’s available the other 50ish weeks of the year, I’ll take this version happily.

Portable, changeable and, perhaps best of all, small enough to work as a sample for something you might not want a whole bottle of all make roll on fragrance my new thing to love.

I imbibe words and consume past minds. As a result, I often awake next to strange sentences and forgotten meanings.
