    Default What fragrance would you where to your funeral?

    Ok, I know this quite odd and some may say morbid...but if this were to be the last scent for you to be remembered by..what would you choose?

    Brings to mind this glorious Angel review by user FruitDiet that ends with:

    "One of my best friends who happens to be a mortician told me an amazing and frightening story. While preparing a corpse for its funeral, she was handed a bottle of Angel and instructed to spray it all in and around the coffin because it was the deceased's favorite scent. Angel, which already smells of death, follows its wearers TO THE GRAVE."

    Hope that story wasn't hyperbolic. Talk about exquisite corpse, hmm...

    It seems fitting that the whole room-burial site-day should smell like Fracas during my funeral, so everyone can be a bit uplifted but kind of disturbed too by that off-the-rails I Don't Believe in An Afterlife and beautiful decay quality tuberose communicates.

    For me its not the place for fragrance...its a funeral not a club. Fragrance makes me happy...so thats not the best place to wear it for me. But thats my opinion.

    Default Re: What fragrance would you where to your funeral?

    Well if your dead...its kinda past the point of feelings like being happy...but I get what you're saying.

    When you go to funeral people are suited up and groomed and even the dead...so I thought why not? They even put make up on so why not fragrance...meh, guess it ain't for everybody.

    Well, being dead and all, I probably wouldn't care. To be honest, when I'm gone, I'm gone. I'd rather just get donated to science or cremated or whatever's most convenient. No funerals where people are forced to look at or, worse, smell me. They should all just go to a pub and eat a nice meal!

    To be honest, I just realized I miss raid the question. But I still think I wouldn't want them to spray anything.

    Just pour everything I have in my collection after I die into the casket, and that will probably be a gallon or more! Anyone that wants to view the corpse will get what they deserve...

    Nothing, the adjacent, flower sprays should supply the desired ambience.

    I haven't thought about it, yet... I guess my view is quite epicurean, when I'm here (enjoying perfumes- that's me, not Epicure), death's not, when there's death, there's not me (enjoying perfumes, again), so... I don't know if I care.
    Slightly off topic: I pay attention to fragrances I wear to funerals, trying to make some sense. At my granma's, Fleur de Liane, to reflect the dangerous swamp that my childhood with my family was; at an old friend's- an intelligent, sharp and very straightforward, almost rough journalist and writer- I wore Bornčo..
