Some super interesting scent choices in this Astro-Perfume article. I’m not so sure on the astro-matches but its tres fragrance-erudite.
Girl clearly KNOWS her Guerlains, which my Moon in Libra respects.
HOWEVER: after a life-long love affair, i am totally torn re scents of late and here’s why…every time i look at an eco style book/post/article, i am informed that contempo fragrance is just basically shitloads of potentially hideous chemicals. Weirdest thing i read: that Eternity is neurotoxic. Honestly, w.t.f, how weird does that sound?
That’s Eternity as in the Calvin Klein frag. Angel copped it in the same article along with a host of others. So carcinogenic & neurotoxic but at least one smells sensational, right?! Well not necessarily. I completely loathe to admit this but the best “results” i get from my pongs (and i have a suite of them) is when i am just wearing some sort of hippy body lotion.
Certain types of other women or gay guys will be like, wow is that Carnal Flower because they get it but males seem to like scents such as organic vanilla body lotion. Straight men hate synthetic or scents that smell like you’re ‘working’ but they love natural, foodie scents. Hence, i.m.o., the perpetual man-trappage potential of the spicy-vanilla reeking Coco even though it is not some artisan masterpiece.
And then, when you think about it, the perfume industry began in the days when people had a lot of shit to disguise – plague, not having washed for a year, a nice flowery smell to distract you from the lice crawling out of their wig…You know?
Or am i just being neurotic? Has Mars in Virgo/my Saturn transit taken over my brain? Thoughts please.
Oh and another thing: WHY is there no fragrance called Pluto? It would be earthy, all organic obviously and top notes of sulphur, bergamot, frankincense, leather, ozone and crushed violets. Fuq knows where you would wear it to.
