Mr. Howe and I went mushroom hunting today with some friends, and my major dilemma was the obvious one: “What perfume do I wear for hunting mushrooms?”
Ultimately, I chose La Via del Profumo’s Balsamo della Mecca, because I wanted something that would stand distinct from the lush forest smells, and yet harmonize with them. Smoky incense was the perfect accompaniment to the fresh evergreens, mulchy undergrowth, and nutty-earthy aroma of the mushrooms themselves.
Mr. Howe wore Bvlgari Black, because Mr. Howe wears whatever he wants, whenever he wants.
Between us, we gathered enough mushrooms to fill a paper grocery bag! That’s a lot of mushrooms.
If you have a great recipe for mushrooms, please, please, share it with me! 😉
