*Currently Listening: I'm Addicted by Madonna
Oh Mrs. Draper 2.0, how marriage and way to long hiatus between seasons has changed you! Actually, I don't think it's changed you, you're just showing your true colors and letting your freak flag fly; but they were right (who ever it was that said it) you really are a good actress!
Here's what I thought of the future, now Mrs. Draper 2.0 a few days before the Season 5 premiere:
"I like Megan and I think she's good for Don. She's most assuredly not the bumbling moron that we thought she was at the beginning (OK I thought the was kind of a ding-bat at first) of her time on the show. I thought Faye was good for Don though....and look how well that worked out! I'm pretty sure that Megan is going to get crushed by a rogue Street Vendor Cart or is actually a Russian spy or something like that; but for now she's making Don happy and his kids are quite fond of her as well, so she gets something full of sunshine, warmth and light - yet still chic and sophisticated. I'm thinking Parfum d'Empire's Osmanthus Interdite."
Then this happened.....
|Megan "Zou Bisou Bisou" Draper|
If you didn't get to watch it, you "zou bisou-bi-should"! Here it is, you know you heard SOMEONE talking about it!
Hey cool! Mrs. Draper 2.0 and I almost have the same haircut!
Yeah...sunshine, warmth, light, chic, sophisticated....those all need to be spun in another way. Then there was this.....
Clearly from this Megan is either A) Bat-SH%T crazy or B) her and Don have the best role-play EVER! Whatever it is, I like to reward both crazy and kinky. Mrs. Zou Bisou-Bisou-"All-You-Get-To-Do-Is-Watch" is going to get some AWESOME perfumes!
Megan has several facets, so I'm going to give her a mini fragrance wardrobe.
- For the office: Zeta by Andy Tauer (This is my second Tauer to give serious skin time to and I think I'm becoming a Tauer-Fan-Girl.) I had originally given Megan Parfum D'Empire's Osmanthus Interdite, I think Zeta takes that sparkling feeling and deepens it. Gives it some substance with the neroli, linden and honeyed yellow rose, plus a richness with the buttery orris, light-handed sandalwood and vanilla.
- Days off / out with friends: Womanity by Thierry Mugler. Salty-figgy-savory-sweet. I'm a big fan of Womanity: as you can read here. If just seams to fit Megan. It's just "un-frilly" enough. (Note to self...why don't you own a bottle of Womanity...you like it enough for a bottle!)
- Business dinners out with Don (AKA Mrs. Draper 2.0): Nuits de Noho by Bond No. 9. She still wants to be polite and fit into social codes, but she does want to stand out a bit. I was going to give her Angel, but I wanted something a bit quieter, and I like Nuits de Noho icy-ness that wears quite closer to the skin. Nuits de Noho isn't a screamer.
- "Date Night" with Don (AKA Mrs. Zou Bisou-Bisou-"All-You-Get-To-Do-Is-Watch"): Lust by LUSH's Gorilla Perfumes. This is sex on a stick jasmine. The website puts it best, "Unabashedly sexy, Lust stirs an inexplicable carnal yearning. Resistance is futile." Need I say more?
