    Default A Song For A Perfume

    Well, not actually a game but not a real fragrance discussion either, so I started this in the games forum.

    I sometimes do relate a certain song to a certain perfume and vise versa and I guess I'm not the only one, so I'll give this thread a try...

    ... and start with Encre Noire by Lalique, which in my brain is linked to Type 0 Negative's Black N° 1, especially the line 'her perfume smells like burning leaves'.
    Strange enough I prefere a cover version of the song over the original, so here it is, Black N° 1 in the version of End of Green:



    The synthetic perfume materials are supposed to enhance and support the use of natural raw materials, not to replace them, nor in any way to beat them off the market. The synthetic chemicals present a certain challenge to nature, and the perfumer can assist nature in her fight by utilizing the synthetic materials to the advantage of the natural raw materials. (S. Arctander)

    Fate gives all of us three teachers, three friends, three enemies, and three great loves in our lives. But these twelve are always disguised, and we never know which one is which until we've loved them, left them, or fought them.

    I recall dancing to this played on an old, portable Hi-Fi record player many, many years ago. What fun it was, too!
