Mmmm. Let’s take a beauty pause for a minute. Ah. So. Perfume.
I have to have my perfume. I truly do feel naked without it. Call it prissy, I don’t give a damn. I love perfume.
I did learn something that year studying in France after all.
Currently, I go back and forth between two steady beau-s: Marc Jacob’s Signature Scent (mmm… gardenias!) and YSL’s Parisienne (mmm… Kate Moss).
Prada’s Infusion d’Iris came very close…
… I almost bought some not too long ago (and still might), but then Balenciaga’s newest, Paris Eau de Parfum (and we all know how I feel about Balenciaga’s own and Mr. Ghesquière), waltzed in my life brimming with violet and savory pepper notes… and now…
… now, I just don’t know what to think or feel. I love them both!
What can I say, I want it all.
In the end, I’m sure I’ll fall victim to ingenious advertising.
Does it hurt that Paris was inspired by la magnifique Charlotte Gainsbourg (also featured in the ad campaign)?
No. No, it does not. Do I want to be her? Well, yes, yes I do. So smelling like her will probably do for now.
Paris vs. Parisienne? Now there’s a brawl I’d like to see. But I’m sure I’ll find a way to reserve for them both a très special place in my heart.
Oooh, here’s a question for ya: Who would you rather smell like, Charlotte or Kate?
Dang, might be a toss up! ♥
