Everybody and his mother is making a perfume these days, so there is not really a lack of new fragrances or too little launches. But still, who should bring out a perfume?
What brand, label, person or organization should make a perfume bearing their name?
Which scent is missing in Perfumeland?
I love Barbour jackets and one of my very favorite things in fall is being able to take mine out of the closet again. I actually long for those chilly, wet days that make the fabulous properties of a Barbour shine. A Barbour jacket also has a very distinctive smell. The waxed cotton smells strongest when the jacket is new or newly weatherproofed of course, but it never entirely leaves. It also smells of rain, forest, grass, the outdoors.
I’ve always wanted a perfume that complimented the smell of a Barbour jacket and something that comes close is the (obviously!) discontinued Tom Ford Private Blend Moss Breches, although it is not absolutely perfect it is the closest. Other perfumes that go well with the jacket and the mood it conveys are Chanel Sycomore and Serge Lutens Vetiver Oriental. Close, but no cigar.
Do you have any recommendations for me?
Which brand/person do you want to launch an eponymous scent?
