    Default Best Name for a Perfume HOUSE?

    We've discussed the best and worst names for individual perfumes, but what, in your opinion, are some of the best and worst names for a perfume line? Any thoughts on what you'd call your perfumes if you started your own line?

    Best:
    Slumberhouse- love this name, but I have yet to try a a fragrance because reviews say they tend to be medicinal?
    Lostmarch- disappointed in the quality of the fragrances I've tried from this line, but love the name
    Indult- hated Tihota, love the name, probably because it reminds me of "cult?"
    People of the Labyrinths- and extra points for coming out with a fragrance called A*Maze
    Diptyque- Once I pronounced it right, I found it cute and fun

    Worst:
    biehl parfumkunstwerke- I can't hear this name without picture Jessica Biel wandering through Ikea. But I'm strange.
    By Kilian- "This is Love by By Kilian." Kilian is a cool name. Why the by?
    The Different Company- eh, something a bit pretentious about the name, along the same line as "Untitled" but without the tongue-in-cheek charm of "I Hate Perfume"

    If I could name a perfume line, I would choose "Luster" or "Linger." Sort of boring and probably already taken, but I like the feel of them rolling off my tongue.

    Isn't everything sexy when said by a sexy Frenchman? Perhaps even "Grossmith."

    I've wondered about the origins of Etat Libre d'Orange. It is French for "Orange Free State," which is where the Boers went when the British took over Cape Town Colony. Then the British took over that as well. A rather notorious part of South Africa.

    The French have a terrible time trying to pronounce my last name. Just awful. I always have to spell it for them.

    Personal note to self: speak like a Frenchman but do not adopt the French bravado...
