...Parfummaniac:I can imagine when you got completely hit by music it's really tough to concentrate on a fragrance and so is the other way around too. It also depends on the mood you're in, sometimes it's easier to get lost, no matter in what form of art. Yes , I consider perfume as a form of art, to smell from the outside but it can touch you deep on the inside, just like music.I saw an earlier article about fragrances matched with tea (intended to be worn while enjoying tea), and had to think whether there are fragrances to accompany tasting wines - it somewhat sounds counterproductive, but perhaps it's in the direction of "perfumes that go well with smoke/booze" etc. For music and fragrances, I really wish I could concentrate so much as to delve deeply in both at the same time. However, it doesn't have to be even music but some kind of noise, and I can't concentrate on the smell (or hardly on anything else) :(I also do appreciate fragrances as art, or I tend to be drawn to those that seem to be art (while using 'functional' fragrances for every day), since my love for perfumes started as such (Diorissimo), but then, I wonder if scents of flowers in the nature are 'art' as well, when they can't be reproduced, even when they do not evoke deep or complex feelings inside, but only an instant euphoria? I have a flower especially in mind and haven't found any fragrance containing its smell yet.
