    I can already see a great Guerlain-ish ad for this. A beautiful woman with six wings placing a glowing ember on the mouth of a man.

    Wonder what the bottle design would be like? I imagine the juice color being very very bright and ambery - like SMN Muschio Oro.

    Good one - I like it. I think the market needs to cycle back to that kind of classiness, but it will definitely happen. Right now, the poser fragrance Top Kat - promising civet but delivering calone - is more like what we would expect.

    I love the French names, they simply roll off the tongue, so gracefully fluid. Unfortunately for me, I don't know french. I also love to read the translated meanings, they fascinate me! The names that come to my little brain are more like OPI nail polish colors, which are usually a sort of clever or fun play on words.

    Great names and inspirations up there! I'd go with names from Roman or Greek mythology - how cool would it be to name a perfume Terpsichore or Aurora or even Eris? Alternatively, I would just pick my favourite words. I'm obsessive like that, flipping through a dictionary and seeking out words that I like for how they sound or look.
    It is known that there are an infinite number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near nothing as makes no odds, so the average population of all the planets in the Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that the population of the whole Universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely products of a deranged imagination.

    In general, I'd like a greater diversity of language names. I'm sure there are some good words that aren't French or English!

    By the by, xXjEnNyXx, have you ever read Good Omens by Neil Gayman and Terry Pratchett? The main character's name is Anathema Device.
