Quick post-ski thoughts

First day after a vacation is always filled with so many different things to do, so I'll just give you a quick rundown of what I wore while skiing, hot it behaved and some photos of the mountains.

Even though I thought skiing in March will prove to be a sunny, warm activity, I was quite wrong. On those days when it was actually sunny, it was still cold and windy and although not as cold as on non-sunny days, cold enough not to mistake the weather for spring.

Bal d'Afrique is definitely something cold cannot kill. :) And 3 spritzes of it are too much. It got trapped between my layers of clothing and I could smell it all day. A large plus for it. The same goes for Alamut which managed to reveal new facets in the cold (wet and rose-smelling). That one is strange - I'm not sure what I think of it.

I had high hopes for Sushi Imperiale but they were dashed by the coldest day I ever experienced. I don't think I was ever that cold in my life (it was a windy -15 degrees Celsius). The cold killed the Sushi Imperiale. The same happened to Vetyver Vanilla by Gutsatz house.

On one of the sunny days I wore Keiko Mecheri Iris Pourpre which turned quite sweet in the sunny cold.

In the evening I mostly kept to my new discovery - Nuxe dry oil for body which has a lovely smell that combines great with By Kilian Back to Black (and feels great on skin).

That's all for today - here are some photos:

The last one is me of course. :)


  1. Oh, no! Sushi failed you!

    I'm sure that it will try to make it up to you.

  2. All that beautiful snow--whee!

    Sorry-- not a Susho fan, but I just bought a bottle of that Lorenzo V's musk you sent me a sample of-- yum and double-yum! Keeps me warm all night...

  3. CF, I'm sure it will at a better chosen moment. :)

  4. Aha! I'm really glad to hear that. Btw, does that count as enabling? ;)
    I hope you're having the greatest time!
