    Default Memorial Day Fragrance, Whats Your Fragrance Choice

    Hey Fellow Basenoters!

    Memorial day is coming up!
    Just a quick recap of what its all about (Thanks Wikipedia!)

    Memorial Day is a federal holiday observed annually in the United States on the last Monday of May.Formerly known as Decoration Day, it originated after the American Civil War to commemorate the fallen Union soldiers of the Civil War. (Southern ladies organizations and southern schoolchildren had decorated Confederate graves in Richmond and other cities during the Civil War, but each region had its own date. Most dates were in May.) By the 20th century Memorial Day had been extended to honor all Americans who have died in all wars. Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces.[2] As a marker it typically marks the start of the summer vacation season, while Labor Day marks its end.

    Many people visit cemeteries and memorials, particularly to honor those who have died in military service. Many volunteers place an American flag on each grave in national cemeteries.[3]

    By the early 20th century, Memorial Day was an occasion for more general expressions of memory, as people visited the graves of their deceased relatives in church cemeteries, whether they had served in the military or not. It also became a long weekend increasingly devoted to shopping, family gatherings, fireworks, trips to the beach, and national media events such as the Indianapolis 500 auto race, held since 1911 on the Sunday of Memorial Day weekend.

    What fragrance do you think embodies the spirit of Memorial Day?

    My Pick:
    Domenico Caraceni 1913 (old formulation of course!)
    Dark and heavy yet alluring and fun with its citrus and rose overtones

    reflection of a day dedicated to death is also celebrated to live life to the fullest (the shopping and extended weekend)

    Lets hear it!

    Maybe it's the Apple Pie note in there, but Tommy strikes me as being a quintessentially American frag
