    One perfume that embodies classicism and one that embodies romanticism. Go.

    For me, Diorella and L'Heure Bleue, respectively.

    Vent Vert (vintage extrait) for Classicism and Baghari (vintage) for Romanticism. My initial thought on the latter was Shalimar, but I think Baghari transports a bit more of this specific exaltation that was latent in romantic expressions.
    Shalimar would possibly be Baroque.

    I think this kind of mapping perfumes with eras/art styles/... is really fun. How about a little game? For example treeman says L'Heure Bleue. My association would be Eric Satie - Gnossiennes. I say Perfume xy and the next one says: Cubism! And gives a new perfume. And the association could be anything, from food to dance steps, architecture, a city, a single painting, a song. Or would some limitation be better? Some academical strictness? What do you guys think?

    In an earlier thread, I expressed my skepticism regarding exact parallels between perfume and other art forms. I think a more fun approach would be, as you suggested, to link perfumes with places or feelings or ideas. Why can't we have a bit of subjectivity here, a little fun? I'll make a new thread.
