Today's poll was suggested by Now Smell This reader Namita. She was inspired by Angela's article The Leather Sisters, in which Christian Dior Diorling, Estée Lauder Azurée, Piguet Bandit, and L’Artisan Dzing! "lived together in a large house in a neighborhood that used to be popular before everyone moved across town to Fruity Floral".
Namita's question: if you were a perfume, which one would you be, and why?
As it happens, this particular Friday is soooo lazy that I'm having trouble deciding on my own answer. My aspirational choice would probably be either Ormonde Jayne Frangipani (drop dead beautiful) or Frederic Malle Le Parfum de Thérèse (sexy and powerful), or maybe even L'Artisan La Chasse aux Papillons (light and bubbly and young). But the reality is probably better expressed by the turpentine and raw wood of Monocle + Comme des Garçons Scent One: Hinoki (straightforward, can be prone to crankiness).
