We’ll all seen that text that says that heaven is a place where the police are British, the cooks are French, the mechanics are German, the lovers are Italian, etc. So I started to wonder… what about perfume heaven and what about perfume hell? This is what I came up with :
In perfume heaven…
All chypres are French
All florals are British
All citrus scents/eaux de colognes are German
All woods are Italian
All ambers are Middle Eastern/North African
All fougères are American and
All leathers are Russian.
In perfume hell…
All chypres are British
All florals are Middle Eastern/North African
All citrus scents/eaux de colognes are Russian
All woods are American
All ambers are German
All fougères are French and
All leathers are Italian.
Well… as you can see, it doesn’t really work, particularly for perfume hell, because the French pretty well do everything with perfection. But I thought it was a fun exercise.
Have a nice week everyone!
