Thread: Vacation Scent

  1. #1

    Default Vacation Scent

    Looking for suggestions for a trip to the Maine coast/woods. Was hoping for something out of my summer norm, which for now, is Santa Maria Novella Musk, CDG Vetiver, Penhaligon's Castile, and Costes.

    Anything oceanic/woodsy seems a bit cliche. Maybe something spicy?



    Thoughts?

    Thanks

    If you can, I would still pack the aquas and the piney woods. I find it's wonderful to compare them to the real thing. I found that Bulgari Aqua mixes nicely with Gulf Coast waters, and the similarity of some notes is remarkable. I plan to take Neil Morris Northwoods to the mountains with me.

    But I agree that you need something else. Perhaps you could bring something fresh and envigorating, so that you will have fond memories of that similarly fresh and envigorating location associated with it.

    Maybe you could get your hands on Chêne (Serge Lutens). Has quite a lot to do with the wood-theme.

    Otherwise some Vetiver would do well for both coast and sea. Maybe Vétiver Extraordinaire by Frédéric Malle, or the Vetiver by Lorenzo Villoresi. Have a nice vacation!

    For something a little spicy, but still good for summer, I would suggest YSL Opium pour Homme Eau d'Orient.
