Making sense of scents Buying fragrance as a gift is a game of chance. Unless you re picking up the same Chanel No. 5 that Mom has worn for the past quarter century, the variables are staggering. Department store, drugstore or boutique? Floral, woody or citrus? Will Moncler Store Uk testing a cologne on your own wrist guarantee that it won t turn sour on your beloved s? Things have only gotten worse in the wake of the celebrity endorsement trend. Depending on taste, a whiff of Michael Jordan s signature scent could either flay your nostrils or attract a come hither smile. Sniffing out the best choice Moncler Polo Shirt requires some expert guidance. An alphabetically organized reference that rates 1,500 fragrances, the book is as fun to read as it is informative, as these two don t mince words about which scents are heavenly and which will really stink up the place. We asked Turin who is working with MIT to develop an electronic nose to share a few of his tips and very aromatic opinions. A For women, though it may be hard to find, Breath of God by B Never Too Busy to Be Beautiful is a really intense floral, but with a smoky cedarwood violet background. Strange and wonderful. For men, the Donna Karan reissue Fuel for Men is lovely, a dry, woody citrus with apple notes, more complicated than the usual men s fragrance. And it makes a great gift because the packaging is gorgeous. Q What s a new celebrity scent you d recommend? A Sean John has one called Unforgivable Woman Black presumably because you wouldn t want to name it Unforgivable Black Woman that s not bad at all, though I think it s a bit masculine. Q How about one you wouldn t? A Kylie Minogue s Sexy Darling is an abomination. Really vile, floral dreck. Q How should one go about choosing a fragrance? A Ask for paper smelling strips, spray them and write down the name on each. Then repair to the nearest Starbucks and read the paper. After half an hour or so, smell them again. Then you can tell how the scent moves, and you won t make an impulse purchase. You don t want the first 15 minutes to be fantastic and then things turn diabolical. Q What do you think of Minnesota based Aveda s fragrances? A Considering the constraints they put their perfumers under, with all natural and organic ingredients, they re quite nice. The chakra line is pleasant medicinal, woody, herbaceous but I m not sure they re truly fragrances rather than just nice smells. You can mix two of them and get something just as nice; they re a bit "faces in the crowd." Q Where should you apply fragrance on the body? A Anywhere you ve got a little cleavage, but not too close to the face. If you prefer a lighter scent, put some on the inside of a cuff or sleeve before you put the garment on. Q What s the place of fragrance in a world where companies are instituting no scent policies due to allergies and sensitivity? A When you wear a strong fragrance, you re ramming it down the throats of whoever s nearby. If you wear a loud one like Angel or Insolence to work, you re asking for trouble. If you really want to upset someone, go for Calvin Klein s Secret Obsession. It s crap. It was composed by a friend of mine who will probably never speak to me Moncler Gilet Men again, but it s rubbish. This doesn t mean you can t wear anything, but try something quiet like Timbuktu by L Artisan Parfumeur, sneaky but with a personality nevertheless. Chanel s Sycamore is another quiet one, technically interesting, the best use in years of vetiver, which is difficult to work with because you either use too much and that s all you smell or too little and it disappears. Fresh top, tremendous sandalwood notes, smoky background, a little medicinal, like Altoids. Utterly beguiling, we give it five stars.
