It is rainy season in San Francisco. The April showers are bringing gorgeous flowers, some of which are very fragrant, such as jasmine, wisteria, and orange, lime, and lemon blossoms. Spring is my favorite season. I can't get enough green and flowers and (usually) some sunshine too. I had to run errands in Cole Valley, and I couldn't help but snap some photos. The plants were so vibrant, and the flowers were newly blossomed. The Victorian houses seemed more stunning than I had remembered.
I began to think about the best perfumes for rainy weather (big surprise, right?). There are few perfumes I truly enjoy in rainy weather, but the ones I enjoy most seem to have particular qualities. They are typically musky or contain "sharp" green florals. Definitely hyacinth. I would like to try carnation, as it smells like dusty cloves to my nose. I think musk is really perfect for spring weather because it smells like musty second-skin anyway, and it creates a fluffy soft aura all around you.
Also, I am not a fan of wearing lily-of-the-valley (muguet), but it would work well in rainy weather. Some lily-of-the-valley perfumes that jump out in my mind, in case you are intrigued, are By Kilian's Love and Tears and Oriza L. Legrand's Muguet Fleuri.
