Great story. I guess it's especially fun to think of scent as a character creating element while so often we think of the character of scents being, office, weekend, club, romance, winter, summer, and all that to help our personal characters fit into day to day life. Very fun to think of it manufacturing a character.
Secretly, I don't think Chaps is bad at all. I get a very Creed vintage Tabarome feeling from it. The same dark, smooth, thick wall-to-wall manly carpeting feeling. Thumbs up on this choice!
