We need to let you in on a little secret.
Promise you won’t tell anyone?
It is quite possible we are going crazy. NUTS. And by this we don’t mean life-is-so-hectic-and-crazy-we-need-a-vacation kind of crazy. Or I’m-cuckoo-for-Cocoa-Puffs kind of crazy. No, this crazy is more like, um, crazy crazy.
Does this scare you? (You’re not alone.)
We’ve deduced that this is a combination of stress, sadness and withdrawals from Jamoca Almond Fudge ice cream.
A little sample of Elizabeth Arden Green Tea Lotus that landed on our doorstep changed our disposition a bit this week.
This fragrance reminds us of being a teenager. Every time we spritz it on, we’re back in high school, living with our dad, driving a white Toyota Tercel hatchback with "Lassa" vanity plates.
For several days now, we’ve tried to figure out the connection—why this fragrance brings us back 20 years—but we’re perplexed.
Could this be similar to the Liz Claiborne triangle bottle that so many of our friends wore back then? It’s been forever since we sniffed that…we hardly remember it. Green Tea Lotus has notes of Cherry Blossom, Blossoming Lotus, Green Tea and White Birch. Our only wish is that Green Tea Lotus had longer staying power. The scent seems to disappear as quickly as it arrives.
Either way, those were happy, carefree days that make us smile remembering them.
**Okay, maybe not psycho crazy. Just crazy crazy.
