My brother and family are here for the weekend, and today we also have some relatives from Sweden visiting California. Mom asked if I’d give them a quick peek at the perfume studio and my cottage and garden, so I hope that was fun for them. I enjoyed hearing about their place in Stockholm and hope they’ll email me some photos. My grandpa had eight siblings in Sweden so we have lots of Swedish relatives.
I started the work on Ambre Noir last night to put in the new moss and labdanum; it looks quite doable. As soon as I finish a mod I want to send samples of this and Winter Woods to a few people who love the originals to be sure these seem like very close matches to their noses too.
It is a beautiful sunny day and I have fragrant bouquets of fresh cut roses, sweet peas, and pink jasmine. I’ll spend some nice family time this weekend and hope you will too! I’ve been lucky to have extra special parents that make Mother’s Day and Father’s Day meaningful. Happy Mother’s Day to all the Moms!
