    Default What would you name your own fragrance house?

    If you were an aspiring parfumeur and decided to have your own brand/line, what would you call it?

    Also, I was reading some of the entries for the BN fragrance, and I thought I'd ask you guys what you would name your debut scent(s). Feel free to give details and why.

    Maison Moltening - Established in the kingdom of Siam in 1443 before the fall of Ayutthaya, Maison Moltening is a half-french half-Siamese perfume house that had been commissioned by feudal lords in ancient times exclusively for princes and princesses at that time. 567 years later of remaining exclusive to royal lords and ladies, Maison Moltening had decided to open its doors to everyone globally to embrace the devastating utter superiority that is known as Maison Moltening.

    Patrapoom Boonyavanit is an anciently trained perfumer from the early part of the Pliocene age. He has spent millions of years developing his skills from a series of intermittent smells to the sexy olfactory bullets he creates today. He has created bespoke scents for many celebrities such as Jesus Christ, the burning bush, and Adolf Hitler.

    The first reissue of Maison Moltening's 27,993 fragrance back catalog is "L'eau d'Odyssey," highlighted by the use of calone 400 years before its discovery in 1951. How it had been accomplished is still a mystery to the industry. Rumors say that it is from an ancient formula passed on to Siamese lords by visiting diplomats from the empire of Japan. This whole event was believed to be conceptualized by Doraemon Miyake, great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-grandfather of the current Issey Miyake.

    L'eau d'Odyssey is now on sale at Luckyscent at $450 for the gold-plated crystal bottle with ivory tusk cap laced with Siberian pseudo-platinum in EDP concentration.

    I'm an x-ray technologist, so I would maybe call my debut cologne Rad Man. I see this working as a frag house name as well.

    *EvaneScent* - a line of ethereal show-stopping but short-wearing scents sold by the gallons. Gets better with re-applications, I kid you not. Heh.

    I think I'd give my line my middle name. I like it, it's French, and it's me. Vain? Yes, but as the only kind of perfumery I could possibly picture myself getting into is something very small scale and artisanal, appropriate.

    I'd call it Poeticus, I'd pick peoms that could provide the basis for a scent and while I can hear all the sniggering. The Boy Stood on the Burning Deck........or
    There was a young man from Leeds
    who swallowed a packet of seeds.
    Great tufts of grass
    shot out of his arse
    and his cock was covered in weeds.

    No I'm thinking something more in the line of John Shaw Neilson's,

    The Loving Tree

    Three women walked along a road,
    And the first said airily
    "Of all the trees in all the world,
    Which is the loving Tree?"

    The second said, "My eyes have seen
    No tree that is not fair;
    But the Orange tree is the sweetest tree,
    The loving blood is there."

    And the third said, "In the green time
    I knew a loving tree
    That gave a drink of blood-red milk,
    It was the Mulberry."

    Then the first one said, "Of all the trees,
    No sweetest can I name;
    Ask her who yonder slowly comes-
    That woman lean and lame."

    Grief lick a hideous suckling hung
    Along her hollow breast,
    Pain was upon her as she walked,
    And as she stooped to rest.

    "Why will you question so?" she said,
    "Is it to mock at me?
    For how should I, who walk in hell,
    Know of a loving tree?

    "My eyes are not as woman's eyes,
    They hope not east or west:
    Dull famine my bedmate is,
    And loneliness my guest.

    "Tis not the most delicious flower
    That leaves the scent of Spring,
    Nor is it yet the brightest bird
    That loads his heart to sing.

    "A tree may dance in the white weather
    Or dream in a blue gown,
    A tree may sing as a sweetheart
    To bid the stars come down:

    "Some trees are slim and loveable
    And some are sleek and strong,
    But the tree that has the cripple's heart
    Will know the cripples song.

    The sweetest death is the red death
    That comes up nakedly,
    And the tree that has the foiled heart
    It is the loving tree

    "While ever lip shall seek for lip,
    While everlight shall fall,
    The tree that has the ruined heart
    Is tenderest of all.

    "Oh, ye may have your men to kiss,
    And children warm to hold,
    But the heart that held the hottest love
    Was never yet consoled."

    The women three walked on their way,
    Their shamed eyes could see
    How well the tree with the foiled heart
    Is still the loving tree

    Something pompous and expensive-sounding. Creed, maybe? Is that taken?


    Nah, I'd go even more pompous and not name the company at all, but put some sort of symbol on all the ads and bottles for people to identify.

    I shall call my brand Chi Chi Poo Poo. It shall rival Etat Libre d'Orange's in its fragrance names. And if you think there is a urinal or sweat note it will not be because of cumin or civet and all of you will have it on your wish list.

    LOL! I'd like to start a men's line of scent called Parfums du Paon or "peacock perfumes." Scents for a man unashamed of his virility. Scents--all in the extrait strength--made for a man to strut his stuff...all for the pleasure of his lady. (Think of all a peacock does to catch the attention of his peahen!)

    Several scents: orientals, florals, musks, some heavy on the animalics. All sillage monsters...

    They would come in elegant Art Nouveau/Pre-Raphaelite bottles with peacock motifs, perfect for display on the top of the dressing table or vanity...no pun intended.

    There would be a women's line, too, but they (like the peahen) would not be as pretty... LOL!

    Dunno, most likely, if there were no copyright issues, I'd name it after one of my fave literary or film characters- even without the copyright problems, it will still be a tough choice, since I have so many such characters in my mind and most of them extremely well-groomed and easy to associate with frags
