    Default Future SOTD...November 28, 2017

    There've been some tensions 'round these parts lately...lets keep things light & fresh with a little mindless fluff.

    What will you be wearing 10 years from now?

    Will Serge Lutens be on his 75th release...maybe something like Plastique Magnifique with notes of "melted spatula", tuberose, car-tire treads with roadkill, and of course honey and candied-fruit?

    Maybe Hermes' newest release - Helium de Leon, which is so light & transparent it actually lifts you from you chair. Poor JCE floated away during the creative process and hasn't been seen since...

    Jil Sander's latest - Jil-Sander-Man-Sander-Man-Jil-Sander-Man

    Will Frederic Malle start using actual celebrities to create perfumes instead of celebrity-perfumeurs? Britney's masterpiece, 5 years in the making, with notes of "shaving cream, female genitalia, kentucky fried chicken, and a base of valium, zanax and percocet".

    What are your predictions? Or will you still be wearing A*men?

    Chypre de Coty, reissued in all it's glory in the remake of its original bottle in occasion of its 100 years.

    LOL - love your description of the new Hermes scent and the image of JC Ellena floating away on a helium intake.

    I'm predicting I will be wearing something by Comme des Garcons that is equally disturbing, expensive and perhaps entirely innappropriate for someone my age. In another ten years who know what those CdG perfumers will think up of next. I'd love to see them do a Series based upon coffee notes (espresso, latte, mocha, etc.).

    That's quite possible...I was thinking more: Series 25 - Human Excrements. . Although, coffee would smell better. How about a "Metal Series"...tin, steel, aluminium, copper and nickel?

    I love the idea of an anniversary reissue of Chypre...not that I've smelled it. Would we all have to wait to hear Luca Turin's opinion on if it stands up to the original?

    Of course....let's not forget Nada di Gio, Armani's new fragrance that's so light you can't even smell it! Or Versace's Night Terrors....(a clone of Britney's latest and greatest with some Navy for Men added spark).

    I really don't know what I'll be wearing, but I will probably still have some Polo Green in the collection and some Versace Dreamer.

    Here's my predictions for 2017:

    • Acqua di Gio will still be the #1 seller in the USA, but it won't be as strong saleswise as it was 10 years ago.
    • Natural perfumery will become mainstream due to eco-consciousness reaching critical mass.
    • Thierry Mugler's new X*Men will be out (endorsed by Marvel Comics!)
    • Jean Paul Gaultier will have introduced Gaultier To The Power of Three.
    • Sephora (including the Sephora stores insice JCPenney stores that are now in their infancy) will be bigger than Macy's in terms of beauty sales volume.
    • Someone will buy the rights to Hai Karate and rerelease it in its full putrid glory to cash in on the "retro" trend.
    • Neiman Marcus will finally enter reality and start accepting Visa and MasterCard in their stores in addition to American Express due to customer demand.
    • Tommy Hilfiger will be out of the fragrance business in the US (but remain so overseas).
    • Skybus Airlines (the ten seats for $10 on every flight airline) will sell more fragrances than Dillard's or Belk.

    Top 5 for Winter:
    1) Straight to Heaven - By Kilian
    2) Back to Black - By Kilian
    3) M7 (vintage or Oud Absolu) - YSL
    4) Aventus - Creed
    5) John Varvatos Vintage

    ...about as likely as the "amero" becoming the new currency!

    This is what I'll be wearing on this day 10 years from now. It's perfect, because my SOTD is a quite liberal spritzing of Gaultier2 .
