    Default What would Cruella De Vil wear?

    From 101 Dalmatians? Think about the original Cruella De Vil from the book and, in my opinion the best and only adaptation that counts, the 1961 film.

    The book is from 1956, and the film is from 1961, and from the look of the film it seems Cruella lives in the 1950's, so that is the time frame.

    Understand, then I'd change it to Sheer Madness by Prince Matchabelli from 1959!

    I probably need to explain this to the OP. Normally these threads are done with the intent of eliciting fragrance knowledge, campy humor, and witty or intelligent responses. Matching the fragrance style or name to the personality of the subject in a smart or humorous way counts more than historical accuracy - particularly for people who didn't actually exist!

    I take it that you're actually interested in historical accuracy - a fragrance from that time that a real person with a similar personality might wear?

    I would probably ruin the story by making her surprising and give her a humorously innocent side. White Shoulders - because it was cheap and sold with the image of a certain sort of Middle-American naivete and purity. One could probably make a lot of fun with that!

    Sorry, I didn't make the thread to be humorous. Cruella De Vil is an iconic character and everyone pretty much knows about her and her character, I would like to know opinions as to what she would wear if she was a real person.

    Someone suggested me she would've worn Zibeline by Weil, which I agree with and think is a clever choice. So what else would she have worn? It doesn't have to be a joke, and people don't need to participate if they don't want to. I was asking for real.

    Behemoth cut a slice of pineapple, salted it, peppered it, ate it, and then tossed off a second glass of alcohol so dashingly that everyone applauded.

    Anything dark, classic and heavy- by the way, love the Deneuve pic. But what actual fragrance can this be? Possibly some of the most civet-laden Guerlains, they seem to somehow fit (at least in my opinion) what this character makes me think of, something shamelessly leathery, animalic and somber.

    Since the villainess likes to indulge in the cruelty of real fur coats, how about something by Weil? Zibeline?
