I'm back! I'm back because the beloved husband has now left for the Big-D (And I DO mean Dallas!) for work for three weeks. Save travels Al! (This also gives me an excuse to post the AWESOMENESS which is the opening credits of Dallas.)
Anyway...onto a completely different TV show: Glee! Two weeks ago, No Disassemble Charlie No. 5 kicked off Scenting Glee: Part 1 by finding scents for Mr. Schuester, Miss Pillsbury, Rachel Berry, Finn Hudson and Sue Sylvester. Today we'll scent five more. Let's begin!
|Which I now now is Marc by Marc Jacobs...|
Black Violet lad. It's floral without going into garden-bomb territory. Jammy, pulpy fruit to sweeten it up, some citrus for sparkle and light and wood and oakmoss for depth. Clearly I must equate violets with Kurt!
Jade by Olivier Durbano. It's clean and fresh with a spine. It smells a little barber shop-y to me. (An exceedingly posh and expensive barber shop.) I PROMISE to do a full review on it soon, as I find it to be positively glorious. Many thanks to EauMG for steering me in Durbano's direction! (BTW - He's a jeweler too, how cool it THAT!?!)
Enough about me...back to Blaine. He's going to get a Tom Ford as well! I was going to go with Tobacco Vanille, but I decided not to: 1) giving any HS kid a fragrance with Tobacco in the name seamed way too irresponsible and 2) I thought it might read just a little two dark for Blaine. Maybe in 10 or 15 years. Instead, I decided to go with Tuscan Leather; leather, raspberry & saffron...YUM! It just seams to fit. Oh! The $$$ thing! Yeah, I know these are pretty price-y scents, but I have the feeling that Blaine's family is rather well off. I've concocted this story where Blaine's father is a lawyer and his mother is a either a journalist or teaches something like English at a nearby college. After all, they COULD afford Dalton for him for quite some time.
If you'll remember, Trouty Mouth commented on how good Mercedes smelled in an episode not too long ago. It is my belief that Mercedes is a Mugler gal! I was GOING to give her Womanity, but it seamed a LITTLE too mature for her (maybe in 5 years), plus it didn't seam to be the type of thing that would make Sam Evans go weak in the knees. I decided for day-time Mercedes it would have to be Mugler's Innoocent. "Effervescent berries, black current jam, pralines, sugared almonds" just seam to scream Mercedes!
Angel all the way!

Well...the more I think about it, the lyrics really don't fit & I DOUBT the creators of the show would let it fly, but it would be HELLA funny!
