    Default Your mission, should you accept it.....

    Having recieved a small sample of TM Alien in a swap today I realised that there must be some sort of perfume 'mission' sent out to all the perfume houses each year, Bi-annually or maybe every 5 years, *to make and package bottles along a common theme. *:-X

    2004 / 2006 I think the profile read like this:

    Type: Gourmand
    Notes: Almond, Vanilla, Incense
    Packaging: Masks, Aliens
    Colour: Purple

    Now see how many recent perfume releases, you can think of that fit one or all of those (loose) parameters!!! *

    The ones that come to mind immediately for me are:

    TBS Altaro = purple, gourmand, incense
    Lancome Hypnose = purple, gourmand, incense
    Alexander McQueen My Queen = purple, incense
    Annick Goutal Mandragore = purple, incense
    Miss Dior Cherie = gourmand
    Chanel Allure Sensuelle = purple, incense
    TM Alien = purple, gourmand, aliens
    Idole de Lubin = masks, incense
    Bond Street No.9 New Haarlem = purple, gourmand, vanilla

    :

    Any one else see the trend?

    ;D

    Hi there,

    Ohh yeah that one is totally the trend

    The new:

    Lolita Midnight is both a gourmand and purple
    Pure Purple by Hugo Boss is almondy, gourmand and in purplish bottle too....
    then the new Provocative Interlude gourmand and purple...

    *phew!* I am so pleased it is not just me going conspiracy theory crazy 8-)

    I think this definitely shows / proves that many main stream (and niche) perfume companies are about the numbers, trends, and money rather than the joy of releasing orginal, creative blends for the individual's among us. :-/

    It's exactly my point, too!

    I add Armani Code Sheurple, gourmand(orange,jasmin,vanilla,honey)
    Cacharel Promesse: purple but floral
    JetteJoop Jette: purple but floral gourmand?(coriander, pear,pepper,iris, bulg.rose,musk,tonka bean,cedar wood)

    I find it's a pity, everything getting so "global". The new trend! on cost of originality

    I noticed a few red ones on Osmoz recently (Rose Angel, Cartier Delices, Bvlgari Eau Parfumme au The Rouge, Rococo Rouge). * *I think red is the next big color in fragrance *;D

    There are a LOT of purple fragrances in the "new" list though! *I'm glad I've found Carnal Flower. *Nobody could ever mistake this for a "purple" fragrance!

    Purple almondy gourmand is the new pink, light fruity floral... ?
