    Default "A Scent to Match the Socialite" NYT article

    For your perusal, here's an article from New York Times today -- in which socialites discuss scent:

    Hmmm, light, fruity, floral, can't be smelt on an elevator? Oh well...
    but I love the “Eau de rehab!” comment!

    I suppose they enjoy life in their little pond. Are they really that vapid, or is it just the way the writer of the article makes them appear? Some things never change. Apologies for the uncharitable remarks, but sheesh! Just my impression.

    I *want* to be smelled in an elevator. I get my best compliments there.

    I remember that book!It was hilarious!!As far as the fragrance is concerned,tuberose is one note that makes my "NO" list-I've actually been recently ridding my wardrobe of any scents in which I can detect it.I don't know why it gets to me so badly lately.I do know that when combined with fruit,it becomes even more evil and migraine-inducing on me!I will not be trying this one.Besides,I don't like this guy's attitude about elevators,either!I'm not saying I need to fill an arena with my fragrance but an elevator is a very enclosed space-surely my perfume is better than some other smells you could encounter there!?!
