The Scent of a Woman

The Scent of a Woman

“…a woman not yet seen, but whose perfume accumulates on the horizon like a storm cloud.” ~ Fernand Dumont, région du cœur et autres textes

The Scent of a Woman

My favorite perfume in college was Opium. And then Eau de Givenchy. Two very different scents—one cloying and sticky with richness and spice, the other very floral and fresh. Some time after that I wore Romance from Ralph Lauren. Now I wear Noa, a huge bottle of which I got in the Charles de Gaulle airport duty free when I was on layover from Berlin because I could no longer find it in the US. (Now I can get it online but I bought a barrel of it so I am still set for a while.)

The problem with virtual living is the problem of the other senses. Many people suggest touch is missing but I think it’s scent that is missing even more. The scent of a lovely lady walking by in a long gown, such as this one by Synjari Myriam. I bought the “Cream,” which is more of a taupe to me. I love the flutter cap sleeves and the wrapped front on the bodice. Synjari has managed to give this a richness and sheen with her deft texturing.

Gianni Broda (who goes by various display names I can’t keep track of) issued this gorgeously rich skin a few days ago, which he is selling at Fi*Fridays with hand and feet appliers. I think it’s gorgeous, especially with this side-tied hair from Truth Hawks, who just released a bunch of new gorgeous ‘dos. Bracelets are from one of my favorite jewelry makers, AvaGardner Kungler. My necklace and shoes came from Collabor88—Maxi Gossamer and Darling Monday. Some gorgeous finds there this month!

“The question that women casually shopping for perfume ask more than any other is this: “What scent drives men wild?” After years of intense research, we know the definitive answer. It is bacon. Now, on to the far more interesting subject of perfume.” ~ Tania Sanchez
