Most favourite fragrance
I've always had a weak spot for perfumed goods...I hate people that don't smell nice (sorry but I just do)...I think it's a real turn-off when people carry a bad 'odeur'...
Well, weak spot is an understatement - in my case really...you might say I'm obsessed with it.
When some people experience their other senses as foreplay, in my eyes (or must I say nose) 'smell' is number 1.
In the past - when a perfume purchase was on my list (and this is something I need to buy myself, I think it's not so polite to give perfume or soap as a present...) I've always tried to go for that something special, that fragrance that just is not commercialized yet or has a mainstream feel to it.
My alltime favourite was en still is Calandre by Paco Rabanne.
Remember the metal hardware dresses of the 60-ies ? Paco Rabanne was the man behind these wonderful pieces.
I must have been like 16 when I bought my first Calandre bottle. In those days - the flask was a bit more common, nothing special but the divine interior made really up for it.
Today the bottle has a more chique look and is still as good as it was the first time I've ever opened one.
What is your alltime favourite 'smell' ? I does not have to be perfume...candles, lotions, bathsalts whatever tickles your nose...I'd like to know ....
