Pentachord Verdant is the most real "green" synthetic fragrance I've ever had the pleasure of smelling! I think that's where the bulk of its' charm is. I picked the "Alice in Wonderland" scene because of how deep and well....VERDANT all the lush forest background is! FORGET THE FLOWERS! They don't smell like flowers any way! You see...magical singing flowers loose their smell. They're actually cursed. The more they sing, they loose their smell, and given by how in tune and in balance the buds are, not smelling like anything. They sing, they dance, the give Alice a strange time, but THEY DON'T SMELL LIKE A THING! It's the damp, dense, chlorophyll filled background that is the olfactory star of this music video!
And then there's Prince Eric.... "Why Prince Eric?", you ask... BECAUSE I THINK HE'S THE MOST HANDSOME OF ALL THE DISNEY PRINCES & THIS IS MY BLOG, THAT'S WHY!!! Besides, Price E has such astonishing oral hygiene that me just MUST smell like mint, and I had to get the mint in there somehow. (There's mint in this fragrance...MINT I SAY!) Plus, I'm sure that there is some a bit off the smell of tobacco on him from his "old money" upbringing!
Pentachord Verdant is the most real yet still synthetic green fragrance that I've ever had the pleasure of smelling. And THAT, dear readers, is where the magic of the scent happens for me! It's just like the magic of animation, we marvel in the "unreal realness" of what the animators can create. It's like visual and olfactory twilight. That glorious space between sleeping and waking. Otherworldly, yet rooted in some bit or reality. Yup, I just said an animated crab was otherworldly: DEAL WITH IT!
In all honestly, Pentachord Verdant was one of those "love at first sniff" fragrances for me. When that happens, it's very hard for me to "accurately" describe it, so I have to describe it....umm...."poetically".
