Tuesday on Now Smell This, Robin wrote “The state of things: a little rant, and a poll.” A topic (the number of new perfume launches) that many of us think about as we’re sampling our way through the perfume world. But more interesting to me were the poll questions, specifically the final question:
What’s the last perfume you absolutely swooned over?
I love reading the comments, because it always interests me to see how many of us are on the same wavelength—I give you a snippet from the comment by KRL:
My last swoon was maybe Carillon pour Ange, but I hardly wear it. For me, there may not be any relationship between swoon and wearability.
I was just telling Olfactoria that I am, at this point, determined to add to my collection only those scents that fulfill both requirements. The cabinet is over-stuffed, and anything new that comes in (bottle or split/decant) had damned well better be highly wearable and swoon worthy!
What say you?
