Despite El Niño’s chilly whispers far earlier in the year than usual, the weather turned warmer again last week, which is pretty normal for the Bay Area in October.
Love, if you plan a trip to the San Francisco Bay Area, this is the BEST time to visit. Late September/early October. We get fewer foggy days in the city, and most of the summer tourists have gone, so there’s less traffic and the crowds are smaller.
With this little heatwave we’ve been having (it’s supposed to hit 91 today!), it’s been too hot for really creamy, warm or musky scents for me, so today I’m all about Byredo Parfums Gypsy Water Eau de Parfum ($220 for a 3.3-oz. spray bottle, available now at Neiman Marcus).
I recommend it all the time to friends who really don’t like heavy, cloying scents. I love it for weekends and jeans/t-shirt days.
It starts with crisp bergamot, lemon, pepper and juniper berry notes, then opens into a refreshing, light mix of incense (not too strong), pine needles and orris, and dries down to amber, vanilla and sandalwood.
That name, too — Gypsy Water — like, let’s all call in sick today and just go to Hawaii, yay!
Speaking of that, here’s the other scent I’m also wearing…
LOL! I had to get Hawaii up in my scent mix today. Ain’t no shame in that game. Secret Hawaii Citrus Breeze Antiperspirant/Deodorant ($4.99).
How about you? What scent are you wearing?
