Profumum has launched Vanitas, a new fragrance for women:
Her presence is evident to all
and her scent is diffusing
mingling with colors
of a burning sunset
Everyone is faintly attracted to her
Lucksycent, where Vanitas is available now in 100 ml Eau de Parfum ($230), describes Vanitas as "...what we’re always on the look-out for – a vanilla scent that is sophisticated and complex, but still delicious and comforting". The fragrance notes include vanilla, myrrh, orange blossom and sandalwood. (first quote via profumum, additional information via luckyscent)
Other recent launches from Profumum: Dambrosia.
they already have so many though
I might get a sample of that someday, but its not on top of my “to try” list
It really has grown to be a big line.
I know it's perfume-speak but “Everyone is faintly attracted to her” is HILARIOUS. It has to be a problem with translation, because it's the exact opposite of most descriptions, which promise that the wearer will be irresistible. This one sounds more like, “They glance up at her and are sort of interested, but then they turn back to their cocktails and conversations,” or, to put it in a single word, “Meh.”
Still, you know, it perversely makes me want to smell it, so maybe that's the whole point.
That gave me a good laugh this morning too! I wonder if it's stated in a more compelling way in the original Italian?
I kind of like “everyone is faintly attracted to her,” actually. LOL. Seriously.
I've still been wanting to sample Dambrosia. This sounds interesting too, but I'll probably skip it.
Too. Many. Launches. Ack!
The Italian has “languidamente” — languidly attracted. So they're attracted, but too tired or lazy to do anything about it. P.S. I am not casting aspersions upon those of Italian heritage!
D'Ambrosia was very figgy/coconutty… not my thing. I'm afraid of this new one too – it seems everyone is putting myrrh into their fragrances lately and that note just kills it for me. (Baume du Doge, I'm looking at you in particular…)
Still, that does sound more appealing.
Oh, I love Baume du Doge! But happily (given the prices) have never really fallen for anything from Profumum.
Perhaps it is meant to imply that our hypothetical woman hangs with a rather jaded, over-sophisticated crowd, where even a languid response is high praise, given that they've seen it all.
Maybe they meant something like “everyone is subtly attracted to her”?
Sounds reasonable to me. But get out of there, it's a holiday week!
