WORD OF THE DAY #5
Dziś lekcja perfumowego angielskiego wieczorową porą. Mam dla Was mały dialog, w którym powtórzymy i utrwalimy poznane słówka i wyrażenia oraz poznamy nowe. Zatem zaczynamy. Powiedzmy, że Susan i Maggie spotykają się na kawie i tak sobie gaworzą...
S: So, what have you been up to recently?
M: I've been snowed under with this huge project at work for a couple of weeks but thanks god it's over now. I think I need to get myself a treat.
S: Like what?
M: New perfume, of course!
S: Sure! Silly me! So what did you have in mind?
M: I've been thinking of this new one from Elie Saab - Girl of Now. Have you tried it yet?
S: No. What's it like?
M: It smells ambrosial - sweet almonds, pistachio nuts, tonka beans... but I'm in two minds about getting a full bottle.
S: Why? It sounds like your kind of scent a lot - sweet and girlish. And the bottle is easy on the eye, too.
M: I know, I know but there are longevity issues on my skin. It's gone in under two hours.
S: But you can always reapply, can't you?
M: Sure can but I just want it to last longer. It's so scrumptious!
S: Well, let me know if you decide to get it. I might want a small decant, you know.
M: I'll decide once I've used up the sample they gave me with my last purchase. It's gonna be my SOTN tonight.
S: That's right. You bought Angel Muse as a retail therapy a month ago or so. Are you sure you need another candy scent?
M: Oh, c'mon!
