Update: we'll be taking entries through Tuesday, November 27.
One of the joys of posting about new fragrances is the chance to quote all the gloriously over-the-top ad copy. My own personal favorite from the past year is still By Kilian's "Beneath the pseudoinnocence displayed by Bergamot from Calabria...". Can you do better? Several commenters over the past year have suggested that we run a contest to find out. So, in the spirit of the Bulwer-Lytton Fiction Contest, we will. We're still working out the details, but essentially entrants will be be asked to write a couple of paragraphs introducing their new perfume house and its debut fragrance.
But first, we need a name. So, the pre-contest contest: suggest the winning name for our creative fragrance writing contest, and win a 99.9% full bottle of the celebrity fragrance with the most ironic tag line of 2007*. You can post your suggestion below, or send it to nowsmellthis at comcast dot net.
*Sorry, but I am not going to pay to ship this thing out of the United States, so if the winner is not a US resident, s/he will just win our undying admiration.
