    Default Pick a fragrance for your favorite fictional lady!

    Most threads are based on specific shows/movies so only people who are familiar with those characters can participate. For this post, you can chose whoever you want!
    And since they're fictional, you can't be wrong!

    Do you think what you would chose for the character of your choice is what the character would actually wear? Perhaps the character is from an era other than your choice, maybe you think a niche fragrance would be perfect for her but it is doubtful she'd actually wear niche, or there may be another reason for the disconnect.

    I wanted to go with my namesake, Zeniba from Spirited Away.
    But I really have no idea so I will have to skip that one for now.

    I watched Amélie yesterday. For her I choose Après L'Ondée.
    I think she'd like things like iris, heliotrope, and loukoum-y fragrances.
    Apparently she uses a perfume in the movie (I found a thread on fragrantica trying to figure it out) but I always thought that was a bottle of toner. I think it is possible she would wear a Guerlain.

    For Lilico from Helter Skelter, I say La Fille de Berlin. I think a jammy red rose is perfect for her, and it has been in Japanese magazines so I think she'd know of it and likely wear it. The movie came out a year before the perfume, but she could have purchased a bottle a year after the film's ending.

    But what would her nemesis, Kozue, wear? I say a fresh, green floral. Maybe Diorissimo (the current one).

    I like this idea a lot, so do I just pick a character for my own post or do I try and think of a fragrance for the one you left off at?

    ARGH this is too much pressure :P

    Fine - Ill just pick one: Elizabeth Bennett - French Lime Blossom Jo Malone.

    PS. For Zeniba I suggest Amouage Journey woman OR... Une Rose de Kandahar by Tauer - I liked the movie a lot - not my absolute favourite one by Miyazaki but still.

    Phillippa Somerville, in Dorothy Dunnett's books: Shocking by Schiaparelli. Dorothy says she arrived "in a puff of chypre" and Phillippa did enjoy shocking people.

    Wonderful thread Zeniba!!!

    Lara from Dr. Zhivago - although a movie does exist & is one of my fav movies, it's the book that's an bigger epic imho & from my image of her - for her - sensual, soft, yet bold - but still affordable in cost (considering it was in communist Russia) - released in 1917 - to sort of coincide with the Russian Revolution - Caron's N'aimez que Moi - even the name of the fragrance seems to have been made for Lara & Zhivago - Don't love anyone but me

    I purchased Chanel Cuir de Russie recently, and one of my initial impressions on smelling the EDT was that it evoked the scene in Madame Bovary where Emma first rides into the woods with Rodolphe. Soft luxurious saddle, senses sharpened. At the end of that interlude, he mends her broken bridle with his penknife. I think she would have worn CdR is a reminder, if it had been around when Flaubert conjured her.
