Thread: scent allusions

  1. #1

    Default scent allusions

    the olfactory senses are powerfully linked to memory

    either smells from daily life allude one's mind to a certain fragrance or memory
    or
    a fragrance alludes to a certain memory or object (an event happened when you wore that scent )

    here are some of mine:
    bois d'argent vs under-ripe banana + a splash of honey
    fahrenheit 32 - my perfect visit to versailles- perfect spring day
    any opium fragrances - my mom's black chest/ trunk set with ornate "oriental" designs
    odeur 53 - colette in paris
    l'homme - ysl - my friend andy
    kelly calèche - my favorite cashmere sweater
    mugler cologne - golf course visits
    tom ford for men - his sweaty hairy chest
    gucci pour homme II - a glass of iced tea for cinco de mayo
    tumulte - pencils = scantron testing


    let's avoid demeter now
    wishlist:
    Chanel - Cuire de Ruissie and Eau de Cologne
    Penhaligons - Quercus, Castille, and Raquets
    Dior -Eau Noire, Dior Homme Cologne, Dior Homme Intense, and Dior Sweet Sun
    Frédéric Malle - Angelique sous la pluie and Eau d'Hiver
    L'Artisan - l'eau de l'artisan and bois farine
    Hermès - Elixir des Merveilles, Jardin sur Nil, and Hermessence Confret.

    Azzaro SilverBlack - A dark cabin made out of wood at the back of my grandparents' house.. they had mostly wooden junk stored in there, all damp and mossy from the seeping rainwater.. giving some of the wood in there this strangely addictive smell.

    Encre Noire - A bottle of dark blue ink I used to use for my ink pen as a kid.. the ink smelled exactly like EN, without the vetiver maybe.

    Pack Rabanne Black XS - Strawberry Milkshake with Icecream.

    cK Euphoria (Top notes) - Smells similar to slices of various fruit, cut into little pieces and served on a plate to buyers outside many railway stations here. I think the suede note strongly resembles papaya fruit for a little bit.


    PVC and Leather. A Chain and a feather
