Today I donned Maître Parfumeur BAHIANA without knowing where I'd be going, but the answer emerged swiftly enough: a Caribbean island!
The scene is the beach: a slight touch of coconut mixed in with fresh citrus and a salty edge all wafting about in the warm afternoon wind on a sunny day by the water's edge. Half reading a book, half falling asleep, I lie on a chaise longue under a big umbrella covered with bright red, yellow, and blue balloons, counting my blessings that I'm not freezing in Boston.
It worked: I stayed in today and traveled to the Caribbean rather than braving the wintry elements in Boston, thanks to BAHIANA, a quintessential vacation scent. This creation conveys the same general spirit as Bond no 9 CONEY ISLAND and Creed VIRGIN ISLAND WATER. It also reminds me a bit of Histoires de Parfums 1873.
It's carefree and simple and naturally smelling. I like it!
