I know, I know. Every one and their Aunt May has done a top five/desert island scent poll— and we probably don’t need another. But this is totally different! I want to know which bottle (or bottles), you’d throw into your backpack when facing the end of the world (as we know it).
My husband loves post-apocalyptic films, and I love thinking about which tent/sleeping bags/survival gear I’ll grab if Zombies come a ‘knockin. Which got me thinking… Perfume will become the kind of commodity that we trade in spritzes, and which ones should I bring along? There isn’t much space in a backpack (this is obviously a scenario where loading the trunk of your car is not an option, people!), so please limit yourself to what you could realistically (yeah, I know) carry on your person.
My surviving-the-apocalypse scents are:
1. Memoir Woman, which I’ll hoard for myself.
2. Amber Fetiche, because it has astounding lasting power, and both men and women will trade me salt and other goods for it,
3. Estee Lauder Beautiful, because it’s the most “perfumy” thing in my collection, and I think would service nicely as currency among the largest number of apocalypse survivors.
Now it’s time to share in my crazy— what would you pack?
