We had friends over the other night for a pre-Christmas party.
Staying in the guest bedroom / perfume office, one of them emerged, while we were watching a film in the other room, so fragrantly resplendent I actually screamed.
OH MY GOD WHAT THE HELL IS THAT? !!! I beseeched.
“I’m not sure.
Let me look again..
“One of them was something called…..
“The other one was – I don’t know, you have so many I just sniffed round and grabbed the ones I liked..
.was it ‘Bubblegum Chic‘?…..?”
OH MY GOD REALLY?
(there had been quite a lot of wine)
You smell INCREDIBLE! !!! I would never have thought of wearing those two together.
You are a genius!
“They DO smell kind of amazing together”.
I would never have picked these up at the same time..
I would have thought them to be dissonant.
One (Antonia by Puredistance), a verdant lush floral: sharp ivy leaf and galbanum over green rose, vanilla and vetiver; pretty, firm; dignified; the other, James Heeley’s Bubblegum Chic (recently rechristened Jasmine OD) an already very exciting unleashed tuberose jasmine sambac; the first gorgeously restrained, the latter unrestrainedly gorgeous – perhaps why they went so unexpectedly well together; the beauty of the initial clash, as the perfumes rose up in the air together nothing less than INSANE.
