Speculation Alert! Iím trying to put myself inside my dongís head, to understand how she understands the world through smell. This is mostly an act of imagination. Iíve lived with dogs for the last 30 years. Iíve read about how much better their sense of smell is than ours. Yet Iíve noticed that Lisl has no interest in any of the fragrances my wife and I wear. Why, I wonder?
Well today was fun! I got a lot of college work done.. and got to go to Sephora's again I also found out I'm going to King of Prussia (Nordstrom's AND Bloomingdale's are there) as well as Rockaway Mall which has Perfumania. Today I sampled Deseo for Men, Givenchy Play, Dior Homme, Prada Amber Pour Homme, Kenzo Power, Gucci Pour Homme, Versace Pour Homme, La Nuit De L' Homme and I bought 100ml Gucci Pour Homme II. I'll do some quick reviews:
Deseo for Men: Well.. the sample was
- Chypre (sweet green scents, fresh, guess no oakmoss/vetiver?)
- Santal (a bit harsh at first, then settlels down on skin quickly, very soft and just like the sandlewood soap I used in my childhood)
on the way...
- Espace / parfum
- Sandrine / parfum
will review the Cheramy two later
Well, I've moved my family from the UK midlands to leafy Hertfordshire, but it's going to be around ten days or so before we're going to get connected to the internet...
So I'm writing this on my Mac being tethered to my phone. Its a bit kludgy but it might do the job in the meantime.
Hopefully we'll be back on track again soon..
I've some pics of the BN Lunch to upload too...
In a sense, they're all celebrity fragrances. At one extreme, giants like Chanel no.5 - brands so big, they're measured not in one celebrity, or multiple celebrities, but multiple celebrities over time. Think of the iconic no.5 as having a celebrity bandwidth of 10 Paris Hilton units. At the other extreme, a niche perfumer like Goutal, or a perfumer-wrangler
