    That is a great one, so great that Alexandra de Markoff has a scent named this. Are you in marketing, it could be a new career calling.

    For me, I would like;

    Le Baiser d'Amour = (The Kiss of Love)

    Mes Nuits de Solitude (My secluded nights)

    L'Ange de mes nuits (Angel of my nights)

    I could go on forever.

    Les larmes des Anges = Angels' tears - Brielle, did I translate it and spell it correctly?

    Oh and I guess also

    Les larmes de joie = tears of joy. That would be a nice one.

    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.

    With all the different kinds of voices out there, I'd have no idea what to expect... Ella Fitzgerald would sound/smell glorious but Bob Dylan would be challenging...

    Congrats on your first perfumes!!

    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.

    To celebrate the Golden Age of Greece by introducing a line of fragrances named after the gods of Olympus and the heroic mortals of the age. What fragrance is all about, romance.

    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!

    That being said, I'd like to see two incense fragrances - Eau Noh and Eau My God.

    Well, if I was to do the same, picking up words that I like, one would be called 'Anathema.' Love that word! And another: 'Asthenic'

    Anathema *is* good. As is enigma, and the above mentioned prism is very nice too!

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