My lips are painfully chapped and swollen from yesterday’s hiking adventure. I’m groggy and tired from staying up too late last night (shopping for, and purchasing, a treadmill). It’s a chilly, grumpy beginning to what is going to be a long week; it’s day one, week one of Winter Term classes (I run a college bookstore), so I’ll be relying on the mood-altering aspect of perfume to get me through… I’m not sure yet which direction to take: Greens to put Spring in my step, or Cashmere Sweater Scents to keep me cozy and warm? Is there something in my vault that is both energizing and comforting? Off to investigate.
