    Default What would Michel Foucault wear?

    Adept of postmodernism, the philosopher whose main books were written on madness, crime and sexuality. What would Michel Foucault wear?

    Interesting question. Maybe Noir Épices (Editions de Parfums Frédéric Malle).

    This Is Not A Pipe by Demeter (in the vein of Sartre and Magritte)
    He'd be more of a non-perfume kind of guy. Something more along the lines of something from CdG Odeur 71 or synthetics series.
    Your nostrils, which will dilate immesurably in unspeakable contentment, in motionless ecstasy, will ask nothing better for space, for they will be full of fragrance, as if perfumes and incense; for they will be glutted with complete happiness, like angels who dwell in the peace and magnificence of pleasent heaven.
    (From Maldoror by Comte de Lautreamont)

    BUMP.

    I was spending a lazy Sunday yesterday flicking through my old critical theory course books from my MA degree years ago and thought this very same question!

    I'm thinking along the lines of something rather conservative and definitively European. There is a wonderful passage in Luca Turin & Tania Sanchez's Perfumes: The Guide about a 'funereally dandified silver-haired German architect' wearing something like Brut to add colour and a crude charm to his overall 'aura'.

    I don't think Foucault would have worn Brut but I wouldn't be surprised if he wore something similarly uncomplicated and asymmetrical to his perceived persona.

    Failing that I think Knize Ten would do.

    Oh, it was very nice to see this old thread again
    I still think it would be Noir Epices or maybe some white floral - Tubereuse Criminelle

    A good and interesting thread to have come back--thats' for sure. I don't think there's much to beat Kevin Guyer's cleverness and idea here, so I'll add a plus one.
    That girl, that bottle, that mattress and me.

    I just got done taking a Prisons and Prisoners class at Rutgers University and my professor was a preacher for Foucalt. Funny that he would show up here. As for what he would wear I would say something with a heavy metallic scent!

    There are still lots of stories going around here in Sweden about when Foucault was a doctoral student at Uppsala University, and cruised around the campus in his bright red cabriolet by day (and the gay cruising parks by night). I would say Delicious Closet Queen by ELdO. Or maybe Jicky.

    Considering the places he used to frequent in SF while teaching at Berkeley, and his activities therein, I'd say Sécrétions Magnifiques.
