Snicker Doodles


Thanks to Miss Magnolia, I can once again smell something like fresh baked Snicker Doodles cookies. My vintage bottle of Eau Fresh by Jovan (discontinued) arrived in the mail this week. I am happy to report that it was sent promptly, was received in good condition, and it smells divine. I've already bid on another bottle - wish me luck!

Thank you, Miss Magnolia, for helping me to reconnect with the essence of my past!

Darling, I'm thrilled to bits that it arrived intact, you'll be the most fragrant person in the office come Monday.

Now we really have to work on Pax's scent, we had cocktails last week, she smelled like someone dumped a bottle of "Charlie" in an over heated, high school gym locker, add that to her usual cheap bourbon and moth ball aroma and I was having vapours before the first round arrived.

Now darling, you know I just adore Paxina but I think it's time we staged an intervention and told her that bathing, unlike having your photo taken, will not steal part of her soul.

Merci said...

Miss Magnolia-
Rumor has it that Pax has a birthday coming up soon. Perhaps a gift set of a lovely fraqrance with soap-on-a-rope and after bath talc is in order.

Thanks once again. Not only do I have my long lost scent, but I'm learning to bid on ebay!

Darling, I'm well aware Pax's birthday will soon be upon us, this very moment I'm scouring the better Toronto dollar stores for just the right thing, it's not east buying for the man who has nothing, it's a chore that occupies the better part of my days. I'll be sending it to Miss Rose, who will no doubt pass it on.

You'd be suprised what you can find on e-bay, I've been selling on it, steady for 6 years, if you should ever need any tips or have any queeries, don't hesitate.

Merci said...

Miss Magnolia-
I'm sure Pax will be quite surprised and impressed!

I could get into trouble on ebay ;)

reconnecting with old scents but not old friends?

Merci said...

Joe-
Who knows - maybe one will lead to the other!

Merci,
Wow, I can't wait to smell you on Monday...err, that is, well you know what I meant.

Mag's kids, but I love her. She has the distinct odor of old money (sort of a combination of stale cigar smoke and mold), but on her, it works!

Merci said...

Pax-
I'll be sure to wear it tomorrow.

Miss Magnolia is always a fresh breeze around here!

Now I want a Snicker Doodle.

Glad you found a long-lost perfume, that always makes for a happy day!

Now if Pax could find his long lost youth, the world would be a better place! ;)

Merci said...

Virginia Gal-
Too bad I don't have any Snicker Doodles to offer! I used to make them every July 4th when I was a kid. Maybe I'll make some this weekend. Coming to Jersey any time soon?

Miss Magnolia-
I know firsthand, Pax is hot, youth or no ;)

Virginia Gal said...

Merci - no plans yet for a Jersey trip, but am thinking that before I leave for school, we should plan something, so I can finally meet a lot of my blog friends!

Merci said...

Virginia Gal-
That would be excellent!
