SOTD: Parfum Sacre and Osmanthe Yunnan

And no that is not some sort of crazy layering you are reading up above; I started the day in Parfum Sacre and now in the heat of the late evening I am reaching for Osmanthe Yunnan. But the best part of this heat is that I am enjoying cold slices of sweet honeyed melon, this is one of the true pleasures of summer, nothing more refreshing that cold melon in the heat. Sometimes I forget though that melon is one of my favorite fruits until the hit heats and all I want is melon. You get caught in the stone fruit frenzy of the summer, but in the end I always come back to melon, maybe because on a hot summer day it can be such restorative medicine.

Watermelon is probably the fruit that gives me the most pleasure. It will probably sound totally disgusting, but in Greece where I spend my summer vacation, most people eat watermelon with feta cheese! I prefer to eat it as is, of course, but when I tried the combo it wasn't bad at all actually :P A bit like eating the more conventional combos of grapes & pears with cheese.

Lotsa hugs!

Divina,
Actually that doesn't sound to peculiar to me (I've heard of the watermelon and feta combo before). I actually enjoy my watermelon Mexican style, which is: a sprinkle of salt, a sprinkle of chili powder, and a spritz of lime. In the US it is pretty common to eat it with salt and I read somewhere that in Sicily they enjoy it with a sprinkle of salt and fennel seeds (or was it aniseeds?). Still you are a lucky girl spending your summers in Greece.
