You name it...Part 3

Imaginary namesakes.

They sort of creating the illusion of a fragrance being made especially for you. After all there are plenty of Marias, Sophias and Ritas out there. One of my aunts was called Loulou for her entire life, although she was christened Theodora. Don't ask, I'm still struggling to find any connections too. A very impressive woman in her prime, she could surely handle Loulou if Cacharel was around during the '50s. And I don't mean the beguiling Loulou playing tender and

Cherished addictions.

It takes guts to name a fragrance after a drug the way Yves Saint Laurent and Veejaga did with their Opium and Hascish respectively back in the days. Opium even started a public uproar in some cities, due to "condoning drug use". I agree. Opium was highly intoxicating, especially if someone drunk it. It also aroused some political based complaints, but a perfume blog is not the right place to deal with this kind of things. What's funny however is that

Perfumes are some of the most potent image generators out there. And I believe that a good deal of this potence lies in the way they were christened. As William S. Burroughs allegedly used to say, language is a virus from outer space. And the most effective one ever I might add, since it has infected us all. Being a glossology enthusiast, perfume names never cease to intrigue me, or even force me into autosuggestion in some cases.
I don't know how a perfume's name is decided and I don't know

Mind the (generation) gap...

2015 had been a very successful year, offering me way more things than I could have probably asked for. During this unforgettable Earth's frolic stroll around the Sun, I managed to get my vintage perfumed paws on a gothic house and a swimming pool! The tiny detail that all this occured because of a fire in the place I live and a flood in my little seashore house, shouldn't avert me from being grateful to the conspiring fortuity that the universe has thrown my way, should it? I always believed that

Cheap thrills and ritzy pleasures Part 2

​1) Counterfeits

They're the proverbial swindlers lurking in the dark corners of the internet and waiting for their unsuspecting victims to be lured. They're the nightmares that every perfume afficionado wishes (s)he never ever encounters and have her/his bank account thinned out. They're things like this bunch of Chanels and they feed on your expectation than you might be lucky once in your life for a change and get your paws on a real online bargain. You shall not. "Online"
