It's been a busy week here, with me doing some long overdue Spring Cleaning, that involved realizing that I have to spend a few weekends seriously downsizing. I have got too much crap. Of course, I did rediscover a bunch of things I hadn't smelled in a while in a while that will give me a bunch of future "from the closet" posts. But for this week between cleaning and racking up miles in a Chevy Volt I was lucky enough to test (LOVED IT) my sniffage was more cleaning products and air..
The newer cleaning products that are supposed to be environmentally friendly are less scented than the old ones. They will however, if mixed incorrectly (like bleach and dishwashing soap) still create poison gasses. Avoid poison gasses. Really.
So, random smells. The ones for this week were jasmine and rosemary from the bushes in the neighborhood now that the heat wave has somewhat migrated to LA. The smell of sea air as I drove up the coast to Santa Barbara, a drive I love. The smell of the bottle of Bvlgari Blv I broke while cleaning and love a lot less, and thankfully won't be living with long. I hope.
But the big one for this week was passing a guy on Ocean Avenue who'd clearly been surfing or something involving exercise in the Pacific. As we passed closed I could smell him and it was divinely sexy: salty ocean and fresh man musk. Twenty minutes later and I would have held my nose and paid to send him through a car wash, but at that moment I was all Mrs. Robinson..
So what have you been smelling this week?
