    Default Help me pick a party scent!

    I am having a costume party this Friday and I need help picking a scent that will go with my costume. I am going to be Medusa.....my dress is a white grecian style with gold trim, wearing a blond wig with ringlet curls and lots of gold snakes entwined in it, also gold fake eyelashes. Take a look at my wardrobe and help me choose.....what exactly would Medusa smell like?

    Here's a couple of nice scents that would go with a classical theme.
    Hermes Un Jardin sur le Nil. Lovely green citrus notes.
    Goutal's Eau D'Hadrien. If you want something sweeter and richer, try Nuits de Hadrien.
    Cheers!

    From your wardrobe tdi I'd choose Boudoir or Habanita for Medusa. Otherwise I'd go for something by Versace because of the Medusa logo, probably the dramatic, bewitching Crystal Noir. Your costume sounds wonderful!

    For their titles: Lady Vengeance or Madness
    For the scent: Fracas, and lots of it.

    Sounds like SO much fun!

    Well. Wiki says the following about Medusa:

    While ancient Greek vase-painters and relief carvers imagined Medusa and her sisters as beings born of monstrous form, sculptors and vase-painters of the fifth century began to envisage her as a being both beautiful as well as terrifying.
    Therefore I suggest Angel or Fracas!

    Immediately, I thought of POISON! But, from your 'drobe I'd say,

    ANGEL ~ because it is at once, beautiful and terrifying! OR LADY VENGEANCE, for the same reason!!!!!

    Lots of great suggestions! I had not thought of Fracas but it might work.....Angel is always a great choice for me. Mike I always forget about Kingdom because it is the only fragrance I have that makes me feel like it is wearing me. It may just work though. Thanks!

    I second Musc Ravageur.

    I would have said Alien, because I think it's got that exotic/almost scary vibe going on.
    But from your wardrobe: Insolence. Beautiful and Terrifying

    how about Dzing and Iris Poudre? I mean, Medusa is supposed to be a "hot mess"!

    For scary-gorgeous with no obvious darkness, how about Amoureuse? It's overwhelmingly feminine -- l never wear it out because I don't have the nerve.

    For Medusa my first thought was something with a Mediterrainian theme,but it has to be a scent that is rather loud,maybe with a slightly offputtting element to it,sexy and exotic....perhaps salty.Non in your wardrobe quite qualify after those criterias I think,but have to agree that Kingdom and Fracas might work For the loud and beautiful Diva theme maybe Coco?Oh,and maybe if you layer Eau des Merveilles with something it would also be great!
