That Smell!

via Daily Prompt: Perfume

I once read that if you change a recipe by one proportion of one ingredient, you have thereby changed the recipe’s integrity and thereby made it your own. The possibilities are endless. which leads me to a small rant on perfume. I have always been amused by the plethora of perfumes in department store foyers. There are the one’s I know about like Chanel, Dior, Ralph Lauren. The newcomers like Opium, Gucci, Boss and others, all stong players. ย And not forgetting the popular supermarket lot, who remembers Charlie? And of course there are men’s and women’s perfumes.

But everyone is doing it. Every celebrity has a perfume, David and Victoria Beckam, Beyonce, Pink, Russell Crowe … 1,300 celebrity perfumes was the last count. that’s a lot of minor variation on parfum and fragrance. It’s like, if you’ve done a show or put out a CD there must be a smell for you to market.

Its all alcohol, fixatives, solvents and frgrances. Is it just me, or is it really just mindless marketing?
