    Wink Weird California...

    Hey all,

    Some of you net folks may know about a website called Weird US.com, which is sort of a compendium of weird roadside attractions, supposedly-haunted places, and random odd abandoned things to go check out if you feel like something truly off-the-beaten-path.

    One of the entries is here, a tiny desert town whose eccentric mayor (a retired children's author) has proclaimed the center of the world, complete with a plaque and a decorative pyramid. Apparently he makes his money selling a perfume named after his wife.

    Anyone smelled it??? Or even know what it would be called?

    I think we may have evidence of one of the world's most obscure perfumes...

    Mimi gardenia; I emailed the site asking for the notes and cost of the fragrance. I will let you know when/if I receive it.

    Nice one! That's definitely the town.

    To quote: In 1987, now Mayor of Felicity, he appointed a century-old French firm to create the scent for the perfume, "Felicity ."

    I'd guess he probably used Molinard or one of the other old Grasse houses? Back in 1987, pre-internet, you'd have know someone who had been to Grasse as a tourist to even know that there were companies that would design a perfume for you, so it's likely that he would have ended up with one of the houses that's open for tourism.

    It's probably a safe bet that he's still selling his original 1987 stock, too...

    Woo Hoo! I was hoping someone would.

    This has the makings of the ultimate cult fragrance if it smells good...

    Felicity, CA may be the center of the world, but everyone knows that Fremont, a neighborhood in Seattle, is the center of the universe. There's even a sign saying so.
