I am so thirsty for the marvelous that only the marvelous has power over me. Anything I can not transform into something marvelous, I let go. Reality doesn't impress me. I only believe in intoxication, in ecstasy, and when ordinary life shackles me, I escape, one way or another. No more walls.”-Anais Nin

    Talking Re: Which scent would you wear if...

    Tigrushka, it would depend TOTALLY on who did the asking, don't you think?

    Oh well, since I always choose only to please myself , I'll go with (from my limited experience/dream wardrobe):

    a dinner - Mitsouko
    movies - (chick flick) Garcon Manque
    a concert - (chamber music) Apres le Ondee (rock) Poison
    a café - something with chocolate
    a holiday in the sun - Kai
    a trip to London, Paris or any other major city of your choice? (I choose all three in this order!)
    London - Grey; Paris - Champs Elysees; New York - Chanel 19

    When do we leave?!!

    Actually, this depends more on a number of other factors (e.g. mood, weather, others involved). For example, if it were raining and November and I was INdoors in a café, possibly alone or with my sister, I might instead wear MV3, and if I could get my hands on the original Cabochard, it would edge out Zagorsk for formal events.

    But right now, Zagorsk is IT.

    At this moment:

    Dinner - Theorema by Fendi (something that doesn't conflict with the food)
    Movies - Fleurs De The Rose Bulgare by Creed
    Concert: Rock: Black Aoud by Montale. Classic: Coco by Chanel
    Café - Opone by Diptyque
    Holiday in the sun: Popy Moreni
    Trip to a major city (Seattle? That's major for me) - I know this is fudging, but I can't decide: Green by Nanadebary, Alonissos by Antiqua Farmacista, or Spiritus/Land by Miller Et Bertaux (since you'd be around a lot of different people in many different situations, I'd want something kind of light & natural but distinctive, plus since Seattle is a port city, the Alonissos or Spiritus would go with that type of air).

    Thumbs up Re: Which scent would you wear if...

    I do not match a perfume with an event . I choose to wear a perfume at the moment, spontaneously...
    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

    Pretending I'm not limited by my current wardrobe:

    Dinner - Caron Pour Homme
    Movies - Ricci Club Haute
    Concert - Stephen Jones
    Cafe - Sables
    Sunny Holiday - Tubereuse Criminelle
    Miami - Black Orchid

    What an odd list. Oh well.

    Fun thread idea!

    * a dinner? Guerlain Shalimar (for a romantic dinner) or Sarah Jessica Parker Lovely (for a casual dinner with friends)
    * movies? Donna Karan Gold
    * a concert? Van Cleef & Arpels First
    * a café? Estee Lauders Pleasures Delight
    * a holiday in the sun? Dior Escale a Portofino
    * a trip to London, Paris or any other major city of your choice? A trip to Paris - YSL Yvresse

    A dinner? Chergui, subtly.
    Movies? Jil Sander Sun
    A concert? Modern: Eau Parfumée au Thé Rouge. Classical: Parfum Sacré.
    A café? Tam Dao.
    A holiday in the sun? Depends on how hot the sun would be. Nothing, Eau des Merveilles, Philosykos or Moroccan Mint Tea.
    A trip to London, Paris or any other major city of your choice? Kopenhagen or Tallinn, please, and CdG Ouarzazate. I keep that almost exclusively as my travel frag.

    I find it slightly disturbing how I have an immediate answer to all of those, whereas a 18 months ago I would have found the notion of even considering the question ridiculous.


    Edit: 18 months ago and this thread would still have been old... I was wondering how it had gotten so large so quickly.

    It is known that there are an infinite number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near nothing as makes no odds, so the average population of all the planets in the Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that the population of the whole Universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely products of a deranged imagination.

    OK, I'm reading everyone else's and saying 'ooo yeah, that for a concert!' and 'mmm, yes, that would be great for a dinner', so then it messes with what I'd actually choose, so I'm going to write this and then go back an read through the rest of the posts to see what fabulous taste you all have and what great ideas.

    ... someone right now asked you to
    a dinner? Miller Harris' Feuilles de Tabac (I'm trying to work out if it might affect the flavours of the food, but I think it would be OK) or maybe even better: L'Air de Rien. Wear that and it might well end up being dinner and breakfast!
    movies? SJP's Lovely is so utterly polite but lasts well and on me stays freshish
    a concert? I go to the kind of concerts that are sweaty and involve leather and big boots and jumping around. (OK - I USED to go to those and I haven't started going to the Opera in the last 5 years since I became a Mum.) So Dzing! or Opium, because that's what I always used to wear to gigs.
    a café? Borneo 1834 More chocolate cake? Oh go on.
    a holiday in the sun? Les bains du Marais Soleil de Corse or Molinard's Fleur de Figuer - both green green figs with a slight twist to make things interesting.
    a trip to London, Paris or any other major city of your choice? I like the idea I picked up above of L'Heure Bleue in Paris - this is the best time of year to wear it and I like the idea of its wistful beauty in a busy city. Alternatively Bulgari Black - definitely Black if I was in London.

    What a great game!

    This has made me realise how many of my scents are suited for country walk/country pubs and chilling on the sofa!
