    Default Describe your favourite scent in two words

    I was thinking about Hermes Vetiver Tonka, and Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille, and how their names seem to be perfect two-word descriptions of the scents themselves. So just for fun - in two words, describe your favourite scent(s) that have non-descriptive names. For bonus points, try to keep the two words based on that scent's notes, since that's what VT & TV do.

    For example:
    Gris Clair = Lavender Tonka
    Dzing! = Burning Rubber
    and so on...
