Zounds! Just learned that my friend, Lizzie at Running Naked with Scissors leads a sensory perceived existence and that her favorite way to perceive, sensory-wise, is through her olfactory senses. When in comes to perception, Lizzie’s nose knows. Who knew?
So knowing this and the way Lizzie’s mind works, it’s not surprising that she came up with this fun challenge:
Lizzie wants to know what elements you would use to create your very own perfect scent?
Here are the questions:
- What are the traits about yourself that you would like to convey in the Eu de you perfume?
- When you think of these traits, what scents come to mind?
- So give us a formula for your perfect scent.
- What colors do you associate with it?
- What forms would you offer it in?
- How would you package it?
- And very important what would you name it?
Here’s my take on Lizzie’s challenge:
First of all, I would call my perfume, Eu de Linda de Jour. It would convey honesty, loyalty, strength, confidence, and humor! The elements I would use to do this:
Honesty would be conveyed by the smell of honey because there’s nothing fake about honey.
Loyalty would be conveyed by the smell of egg salad because you have to be loyal to stick around for that!
Strength would be conveyed by the smell of horses but only those emanating from the front part of the horse, of course!
Confidence would be conveyed by the scent of the mimeographed paper upon which the quiz I just aced was written!
Humor would be conveyed by generous amounts of puppy breath.
Formula for Eu de Linda du Jour
47 gallons of honey
One dozen Eggs
One Batch of Puppies
Mix all ingredients in the world’s largest blender – haha just kidding- make that the world’s largest cereal bowl.
Strain out horse, mimeograph machine and puppies.
Bottle remaining mixture into perfume bottles shaped like a puppy horse:
OK, then all that’s left is to slap on a Eu de Linda du Jour label with the slogan:
The smell of life; sometimes it smells good and sometimes not so much!
Then sell the formula to Bath and Body Works for elevenity billion dollars.
So there you have it!
