    Default ELdO fragrance pair?

    Hot on the heels of Skinny Broad, a gin-soaked chypre, comes ELdO's first fragrance pair: Paper Boy and Bad Soccer Mom. The first opens with Axe accord, giving way to a heart benzoyl peroxide and Mountain Dew absolute, with base notes of vetiver and Bazooka gum. BSM answers with top notes of grapefruit and Valium accord, heart notes of dried Enfamil, muguet, and Tareytons, then dries down to a skin scent evocative of chewed fingernails. Release date forthcoming.

    Cute jujy, cute! Just what I'd expect from Rustbeltistan.
    Skinny Broad sounds pretty good, though!

    Wonderful ideas! ELdO should truly take note for their next conceptual thing!

    Somehow, I've always associated Jo Malones with suburban soccer moms, some of which, I must say, could pass for the description above... Or perhaps the Jo Malones are the good soccer moms...

    ^Yes, I think ELdO needs to consider jujy for their creative team!

    I agree with Schilling! You had me going for a sec with Skinny Broad; really wanted to try it! Dang.

    Exactly, cacio, bad Soccer Moms are the ones who are home when the paper boy stops by to collect while the kids are at the soccer practice she skipped. SHe's wearing yesterday's mascara and wouldn't know a Hoover if it ran over her 3" spiked heel mules. SHe once mistook her hair conditioner for Amaretto, thank goodness for EMS....(to be continued?)

    Seriously, Shilling, a gin-soaked chypre wouldn't be all bad.

    Does she look like this?

    Actually that looks more like Skinny Broad. Bad Soccer Mom wears yoga pants and pulls her hair back with a scrunchie. Some BSMs are SBs who finally got married, and some SBs are empty nest BSMs who tart up for a night out "with the girls" while their once handsome hubby watches Fox News in his skivvies.* It's complicated.

    The old lady flanker to Skinny Broad, who is after all, an old lady in waiting, is Where the Hell are my Keys?, redolent of aldehydes, Metamucil, vinyl purse accord, squashed lipstick, and whatever it is that's used to clean cheap motel rooms. And jasmine.

    *Hubby's scent SanzaBeltissimo, is a gas station fougère with a Black Label (the beer, not Johnnie Walker) top note, a heart of cedar and Lifebuoy accord, and a drydown old sneaker, orris root, and mint dental floss (waxed). You could try layering it with Skinny Broad, but it will never work out.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Just wanted to add that scrunchies are a facelift. Sort of.

    My idea is perhaps colored by the type of people I see approaching the Jo malone counter at Saks near Bethesda (an upscale suburb of DC). Middle aged women, in good shape, usually blondish, jeans, simple blouse, no makeup. I didn't notice when they leave, but I assume they'll drive off in their spacious SUV. The slightly older, once trophy wives, wealthy looking types in bright colored tailleurs, coiffed and made up tend to gravitate towards the Chanel or Dior make up counters (for makeup, not for perfumes - it is very unclear what perfumes they wear).

    Hedonist:
    You could then explain the Arabian types.... I read somewhere that even in Saudi Arabia, with the strictly enforced dress code, it is possible to distinguish class, census, and what else.

    Come think of it, ELDO could also create some new frags for the Arabian market. Evening of a spoiled princess, eau de foreign trophy wife, etc etc


    Jujy:
    correct! One of said moms once explained to me the harrowing experience of having to sit in surprise traffic (in her SUV, ca va sans dire) for 1.5 hrs while carrying her daughter to the local soccer game.

    Great, now I want to smell Skinny Broad and Where the Hell are my Keys?! Pay attention, ELdO.

    Agree, that pic of Annie Lennox is definitely more Skinny Broad! Just love her.

    Skinny Broad and Fat Electrician

    Next up -- 'Who moved my I-Phone?'

    Actually, I think ELdO want to get serious with us all now-- no more funny names and no more 50ml (what a shame).

    It occurred to me that my ELdO finds need the perfect spokesmodel. Imagine:

    I will definitely be buying both of these fragrances! Oh wait. I already smell like dance mom! Will my natural skin chemistry clash with soccer mom?
