    Wink Dark Humor: What Fragrance Should I wear to my Funeral?

    Inspired by a post by desmoface, I thought to myself, what would I like to smell of as I lay there in my casket? Passage d'Enfer or Eau Illuminee?

    BAHAHAHAH!!! yeah, blame me..Hey, the way I see it we all will attend at least one funeral in our lifetime, right?? You know, depending on what gets recommended, I may be ordering some more samples. This post inspired me to listen to some Elliott Smith hehe.

    Very interesting thought....

    Not sure what mine would be. Boucheron PH, Tiffany for Men, Chanel PMC. Obviously would need to have some lasting power.......

    Not sure yet, but it will have to be a very long lasting scent since I'd be at the purgatory first, and for how long nobody knows, then I would want to still smell nice when I get to Heaven.

    Anybody knows at what temperature they burn the corpse to ashes? I think that settles the perfume question. But I have a mini bag of oudh chips. In case somebody wants my kidneys, or something, the hospital can use that to fill the cavity.

    "...The group walked around Aswan. The markets were full of spices, and Ellena smelled lotus roots; when macerated in water, the root produces a smell halfway between peony and hyacinth. He also found some jasmin sambac, which is full of indoles, molecules that smell overwhelmingly animalic. Feces are rich with indoles, he explained to Gautier and Dubrule, and so are decomposing bodies. It’s feminine, the smell of death. Calvin Klein’s Eternity is a heavily indolic perfume—the name must have been ironic, he joked. But indoles were not their story, either...."

    Interestingly enough, in Muslim culture the dead body always is washed by close family members, and then attar are applied to the body and garb that the body is wrapped in before it is placed into the grave.

    I would of course like the primal oudh or attar mithi, which is made from some process that involves dirt.

    OMG...one scent that immediately came to mind is IQUITOS!!!

    It's perfect! It already smells like a bouquet of flowers in a funeral home that's about one day past its prime. Decaying roses...gothic and dark, and yet beautiful and inspiring too, which gives rise to the hope that you're going to a better place rather than rotting in the dirt!

    Quorum or Insense Ultramarine---As an act of compassion for the mourners.-- No matter how much they loved me, they'll be glad to close the coffin, fast!

    Havana--- If I'm dumb enough to return to Cuba, and wind up in front of the firing squad.

    Erolfa---------for a Viking funeral. Light the torch!

    Idole de Lubin----------If they can rustle up a pirate ship instead.

    Sandalwood (Any of several high grade)---If I'm going to reincarnate as a bodhisattva.

    Jaipur Homme----If I'm going to heaven.

    Muscs Kublai Khan---If it's Muslim paradise, and the babes are waiting.

    Himalaya ---If I'm going to be canonized.

    Salvador Dali PH----If I'm going to the other place . . .

    Cheers,

    First off, this thread about olfactory choices after our having shuffled off this mortal coil really needs to be re-named, "For whom the smell tolls."

    Second, it (this thread) really struck home for me, as I grew up in the funeral business. Now, it's a little known fact that making jokes (discreetly, of course) about people who've gone on to "cook for the Kennedys" is a big deal in the funeral industry. My brothers and I all grew up talking about "stiffs" and making jokes at their expense. (Naturally, this happened with my brothers and dad only when there were no clients around!) It was far removed from Six Feet Under, yes, but there was definitely a LOT of the black humor.

    But back to the topic itself . . . there are the blatantly obvious choices, of course, such as The Goth Rosary's Crypt, Graveyard, Dead on Chocolate, Funeral Flowers, Nothingness, Passage d'Enfer etc.

    Then there are the less obvious choices -- more imaginative based solely upon the lines of the characters of different frags themselves. (For example, Iquitos, Noir Epices, Magie Noire, Ungaro III etc.)

    And then there are the fun flights of fancy I was laughing so hard at on the board yesterday. Here are a few of my own:

    I want to be buried in a cloud of Crystal oud.
    If they will cremate me, I want them to burn some real oud grains with my body. The smell is so good that will cheer up everybody at the funeral. And also, the smell of oud might remind Jesus of the perfume that Mary (not his mum, another Mary) put on his feet and put him in a better disposition when he'll judge my soul.

    This is hilarious! I would say just something to cover the stench of decomposition!

    My first thought on reading the thread title was Serge Lutens Un Lys, but if By Killian ever makes Straight To Hell or Beyond Caring, they'll have something up my alley.

    Probably nothing or whatever. I don't really care, I'm died.

    Not fabulous timing for me with this thread resurfacing today... my wife and I are saddened by the sudden passing of my wife's Aunt at lunchtime. Both feeling a bit numb, actually.

    Being a Muslim, I was going to inform my fellow basenoters of this religious tradition.

    And Dimitri, I offer you and your wife my deepest condolences, and may God help you through this hard time. Take care.

    I started this thread a while ago. I'm glad that it has gone beyond being a one trick thread. The Muslim burial tradition is quite moving, I'm grateful that it was shared in this thread. And Dimitri, my sympathies to your family.

    Yes, sympathies to Dimitri and wife. Sounds like it was sudden, it will take a while to assimilate and deal with.
    Sincere wishes at this difficult time...

    Ooooooh! What a ghastly thought! Frankly, if anyone stands over my coffin, I would prefer they smell "nothing", because if they do, from then on that fragrance will be associated with....

    Instead, I will prepare a short list of fragrances for St. Peter to have waiting for me at the Pearly Gates: An eternity supply of Jicky; several light years worth of Eau Sauvage; a worm hole or two worth of DV Houbigant; Paloma at quasar strength and last but not least...a quark or two of Tigress for dear old Mom.
