Weekend Poll – Vacation Perfume Packing


I think current week is beating the record of being one of the hottest this summer. There was only one week in June when termometer bar was showing a whopping 38°C. The season in Poland was extremely dry & hotter than usual. Fruit, veggies and cereal products got more expensive due to drying or withering crops. This week though is more violent and unpredictable, with short but intense storms. Increased humidity doesn’t make life easier when it’s so hot so I felt unable to wear anything else than light and refreshing citrus. Sotd included Eau de Neroli Dore, Komorebi, Infusion de Mandarine, Clementine California, and Boy so far.

Speaking of perfume, the date of my vacation trip is fast approaching & I already started preparing some things for my voyage. Of course holiday is a break from everything – work, everyday problems, a bit of an escape from tech world. But it’s not a break from wearing perfume. I just can’t imagine not wearing any fragrance at all at that time (unless I was at the seaside, swimming and sunbathing all day long). My Alpine trip will last 10 days, how many fragrances would you pack for this kind of vacation? I was actually thinking of 10, possibly less but definitely not more. What say you?

    Hopefully the cooler, fresher weather will be on its way from us to you soon. Such a relief to say goodbye to the humidity.

    When I used to travel, I found my nose seemed to behave strangely and nothing seemed to satisfy it! I always wanted the perfumes I left behind …. so in one sense perhaps 10 are not enough, but I also think just a couple might be sufficient if they are the ones you know you really love. Difficult choice. Maybe the mountain air will be best without added scent!

      According to weather forecast tomorrow it’ll be at least 10 degrees cooler.

      I won’t be in the mountains as much as there’ no hiking in the programme. I’ll have to see.

    If I am going to be spending most of the time outdoors I don’t wear any perfumes, since I want to enjoy all the smells that Mother Nature offers. However, I always carry some samples, in case that I have to go out for dinner or any other extra activity. If the trip does not involve to be in touch with Nature I carry 4 or 5 decants and I will be open to any perfume purchase as a souvenir.

      I like the idea of smelling what Mother Nature has to offer. But on the other hand none of my fragrances are so powerful to not let me smell the surroundings.
      I doubt I will be buying any perfume on this trip so I have to be nicely equipped with samples.

    By default because they are in my perfume case inside the regular luggage I use, I have something classic (eh, I have 2 — Chanel No. 5 EDT and Chanel No.19 EDP), something for when it’s hot (Atelier Cologne Cedat Enivrant) and some samples if there was anything I want to try. I think I need to include something in the vanilla family…

    Enjoy your time in the Alps. I had never been and I look forward to your journal when you return!

      So you have some travelling staples to take with you. I will probably select something lighter as in Italy it’ll be still warm. Austria and Switzerland will be cooler so I’ll be able to wear something other than citrus.

    I usually take 3 or 4 fragrances for a fairly long vacation, choices based on weather at my destination. Any more than that and I lose my travel sample vials!
