Xerjoff Number 10 - Kitchen of the Poisoners
The other day at Xerjoff headquarters, in product development...
Lorenzo: Hey Mattheo, the boss has a new order for us !
Mattheo: Again ? We just created a new fragrance last week.
Lorenzo: You know him, he makes so much amore with his fragrances and the 200 mark in the number of creations doesn't come by itself.
Mattheo: Now don't tell us to do anything with Overdose again...
Lorenzo: You can rest assured, it's supposed to be something for the Join the Club line.
Mattheo: So again mix something wild together and hope that something decent comes out of it, as usual?
Lorenzo: Haha, no we take our craft seriously and compose a fragrance that will be unforgettable.
Mattheo: Ok, so again mix wildly together and see what comes out.
Lorenzo: Don't let the boss hear that, otherwise he'll get the idea of doing it better himself.
Mattheo: Exactly, because we are the professionals, sometimes more or less...
Mattheo: Tell me Lorenzo, how should it actually smell in the end or what should it be called?
Lorenzo: I don't know how it's supposed to smell, I think it's supposed to be worn in one of those newfangled clubs. So in any case sweet. How it should be called, the boss said, Ivory Route.
Matthew: Ivory Route? Tell me, have you been drinking?
Lorenzo: I never drink on the job, apart from the five, six vodka.
Mattheo: What am I supposed to think? Hmmm, the name sounds a bit like Ivory Coast, so Africa. We could make something that comes across as animalistic, leathery and warm.
Lorenzo: The smell of a Land Rover Defender, where a lion shit in it? Mattheo: Lorenzo, how much have you had already ? Who should wear something like this ? It should i club wearable.
Lorenzo: A Land Rover Defender on the dance floor where a lion shit in it? Mattheo: I think you rest for now, the smells in here must have got into your head too much.
Mattheo: I imagine a warm resinous scent which captures the warmth and humidity of Africa. Plus spices, which is supposed to mimic flora, and some smokiness, which isn't supposed to bring in animalicness, but an animalic touch.
Lorenzo: What a fantasy, which one of us has been drinking now?
Mattheo: In the end, it sounds a little like the competitor product Grand Soir by MFK with a little smoke, but it sounds pretty cool. But the fragrance will be able to show its full power through the spice and the smoke. It will radiate beautifully from the skin and also last for what feels like an eternity. I am a genius.
Lorenzo: Let's do it that way then, we'll have to toast to that, hicks.....
