Hello Fellow Fumies,
At APJ we have a Saturday Question. Everyone gets to chime in with an answer, chat with other responders and it’s a fun event each week. Taking sides never means taking offence and everyone keeps it respectful and light, even though we can sometimes trawl the depths.
The idea is you’ll see it on the weekend or chime in through the week. Hopefully you will come back regularly and see if anyone has responded to your comment and you can reply to them. The aim is to generate real conversation and connection even though we are scattered around the globe.
Saturday Question: What perfumes would you pair with characters in books/movies/shows?
Another stellar Brigitte Saturday Question.
Do you think “What would they wear?” while watching movies or TV? I admit to wondering, often. Then I go through my catalogue in my brain till I find the perfect fit. It’s a fun game that keeps me amused long p[ast my watching time.
I’m only going to give one recent male and female Netflix example but you feel free to go to town.
Maeve Wiley from Sex Education
Sex Education was so good I turned around and rewatched the whole two seasons again. It’s amazing what you pick up the second time around. Maeve Wiley (top middle) has bad girl forced upon her by peers. She’s smart, tough and takes no prisoners. Many people would buckle under the onslaught but it forces Maeve to become a diamond. Underneath the tough is a bruised heart, full of love. I like the Black Perfecto bottle. So dark, yet filled with juicy sunshine and sweet happiness for her. I think it signifies her character perfectly. Also, it’s now available widely for excellent prices, Maeve is poor so a 30ml bottle from the discount chemist would probably be her style too.
I seriously loved this series, even though I think Laura Schmidt’s direction of Henry Cavil is flawed. The Witcher is a man made by genetic interference hunter of monsters. All very fantasy fiction. It’s a rollicking good watch. My thoughts on The Witcher’s scent? Costume National has long been considered unconventional. The pack that wears it though is a clique all its own. I starts out saffron, herbs and lavender. It smells like I imagine a calling would in history. The woods, gardens, stone corridors and herbs of religious reclusion. There’s even a whiff of incense, cool, smoky and charred. It gives the image in my mind of someone born for a single minded purpose who manages to discharge their duties and then be peaceful.
