again and again

I am in Idaho again, and that is why I have not been very good about answering my phone.  And we were out boating all day today.



is vacuuming in his underwear right now. I did not even ask him to. Love him.



Still here, sort of. Just thought I would throw this up here because it has been on my mind.

Aromatics Elixir makes me think of a Nubian princess. This scent is very heavy with incense, I imagine this is what it might have smelled like in some ancient Egyptian temple. That doesn't sound appealing to you? You don't want to be mistaken for some one who has been embalmed? Fear not, I do not suggest this because it will make you smell like mothballs or a cedar chest, but because it is unexpectedly wonderful.

Recently I smelled two different women wearing this, how do I know this is what they were wearing? Because I asked them you silly ducks! They smelled so good I had to stop them and ask, what is that glorious scent you are wearing? The first woman layered AE with Clinique Happy Heart, and it sort of smoothed out the ancient temple and tombs smell of AE with the fresher cleaner notes of HH (a fragrance I really don't like on its own, it is too vinegary for my taste, but one I found delightful layered with AE). The second woman said she was just wearing the AE lotion, which was lighter and lovely.

Aromatics Elixir is much like the essential oils and incense that it calls to mind, it mixes well with other fragrances, or is great on it's own.

On a side note, this fragrance makes me think of Mattie Thomas, a sassy, classy, beautiful black woman I met on my mission. She wore this scent and it made her seem at 81, even more regal and sexy. She sort of was a Nubian Queen.
