In an attempt to establish a signature scent, I’ve been exclusively wearing Eau de New York by Bond No. 9 for a couple of years now (I adore it!). But honestly, I’ve been in the mood lately to mix things up scent-wise, maybe add in a few more options. So it was delightful to receive a new bottle to get things going.
Here’s another perfume I read about — it’s tempting me and I’ve never even given it a sniff: Byredo Parfums Gypsy Water. It sounds so Johnny-Depp-in-Chocolat romantic, doesn’t it? A vagabond story in scent…bergamot, juniper, orris, amber, pepper, and sandalwood nestled in pine needles.
I bet it smells like camping! Minus the roasted marshmallows, woodland creatures, and unbathed children. Have you ever chosen a perfume simply for the name without ever smelling it? How did it work out for you? Do you have a favorite scent of the moment?
P.S. — I couldn’t find Cherry Bomb on the Tokyo Milk site, but I did find it here. Also, Rachel and I are working on a series of craft videos. I’m so excited about them!
