    Default 1 Person, 1 Perfume

    It's pretty straight-forward, but I thought this could be a fun game:

    Name one well-known person/public figure, then name one perfume you associate with them for whatever reason. Feel free to tell, or not, the reason. Fictional characters are fair game too, I guess.

    Here's me giving it a go:

    Rest easy, it's already done.

    For Julia Dreyfus, I could imagine her in Chloé Fleur de Parfum, especially in this outfit. It's a nice rose fragrance.

    According to some people on Fragrantica, "Exceptional: Because You Are" for Men is perfect for Dora the Explorer or Barbie!

    Would have also associated this fragrance with Proust as well, since the nonfictional Parisian gardens/park/historical site after which the Guerlain fragrance is named is actually one of the settings for this famous novel series, as well as location for one of the film adaptation.

    Then again, any classic Guerlain (particularly thiking of Mouchoir de Monsieur and Jicky) would be a great signature scent for both the writer himself, his characters and an entire historical age he depicted.
