  8. Perfume + Body Chemistry (designed to change on everyone)

    A long time ago, I remember once hearing about a fragrance, basic in design, that's specifically made to smell different on each person. While I want to say it was a body spray, I'm not sure about...

    Re: "L" by Lolita Lempicka.
