Many thanks to everyone for your kindness last weekend. Mom is feeling better. She's not entirely back to normal, but she's much better. She told me this week her back hurt and that she wished her easy chair had a massage function. I arranged to have a legit massage therapist go to her house this afternoon and give her a real massage. I hope she likes it. I don't think Mom has ever had a professional massage.
This was a very cloudy week. I still have many new beauties to show you. I'm hoping for a sunny weekend. I'd like a chance for a re-do on Guerlain's Pink Punk, and I need to get some good photos of Peach Boy. I caved and bought it. I also want to tell you about the informative Sisley Paris master class I attended last Saturday. Plus, I've got some dynamite new skin care to feature.
There is a new Chanel fragrance being released in August. Coco Noir has been hush-hush, code-named Gold. Here are the notes.
- Top: grapefruit, bergamot, and orange
- Heart: jasmine, rose, red geranium, and Indonesian patchouli
- Base: Brazilian tonka bean, Bourbon vanilla, sandalwood, frankincense, and white musk.
