Agua Lavanda by Puig
„good for what ails ya!”
So gorgeous, clean, cooling, & calming! In summer, I sometimes just pour it on myself & splash it on my sheets. I've seen bottled waters that were more expensive than this! (On US eBay, it's usually around $11, shipping included, for the jumbo 10 ounce...
I agree w/Missk & Jubliant. It's soooooooo sweet! A shame, because it's well-composed and balanced. Too bad it makes my teeth hurt.+1
Mostly orange blossom, as if a clean French child dressed in white handed you a dandelion stem. Flanker of Candy??? Why?+2
Lovely clean laundry scent, but not too synthetic. Light tang of ginger adds some interest. Good for cozy sleeping. Great price on US eBay.+2
Love: this gentle scent smells like a soothing, pampering cream. Hate: > a dot makes it hard to breathe. Such a soft, pretty poison.+2
Cheery, simple, fruity-floral for a 12-year-old. Incanto Charm, but softer. Cute bottle of blown-glass bubbles. Well-priced on US eBay, too+1
One of the most sweet/synthetic scents I've ever smelled - more than Pink Sugar. It also lasts forever, so it's a bargain if you like it.+1
Bland, synthetic floral. Rose & lily of the valley soap. At 3 hrs, not a trace left, thank goodness.+1
Sables yields only immortelle to me. It feels like a medical experiment - how much of this odd note can one stand? Result: Not much at all.+3
Interesting gourmand notes listed for this, but a quick sniff just gave me a White Flower Punch in the Face. Ouch!+2
It's not the most head-turning scent, nor the most avant-garde, but I keep it at my desk for feeling calm, energetic, comfortable in my skin.+2

Since the rest of the Greek text reads "She's hiding her ears under her hood, for she doesn't want anyone to know that her parents were the first rebels. But deep inside she's proud of herself.", I guess that the part of the story we were never told was probably this one.

Tentations is actually more like eating a juicy pepper-sprinkled peach (enter eccentricity), as a snack accompanying a vodka-quaffing spree, in the middle of a garden laden with intoxicating carnation bushes. And speaking of kitsch, I think that its bottle is the exact opposite, since it would be the perfect movie prop container for holding a potion hanging from an oriental princess' belt.

It depends...Literally speaking, it should be one of these.
But since kitsch and I had always a somewhat hostile stance to each other everytime we met, I think I'll go with this.
And yes I know that one man's aesthetic dream is another man's aesthetic nightmare. Lots of thanks!

In my book, Anaïs Anaïs belongs to a limited genre of fragrances which I call "perf(um)idious" (although the Greek word I use cannot be translated accurately), and which pack a good deal of potential debauchery and oppressed desires beneath their beguilingly innocent looks. The strange thing is that while I love them, they also scare the hell out of me, as I find their mesmerising effect nearly impossible to resist. They mean "business" in a covert and embarassing way, which usually catches me off guard. And speaking of business, since images are the main way in which fragrances speak to me, I'd surely dig this kind of innovation. It would be like a book where you can smell the words and behold the plot. Thanks a lot for dropping by!
