This is a post about perfume. Sort of.
A couple of years ago I adopted, as my regular perfume, Daisy by Marc Jacobs, on the principle that if someone makes a perfume specifically for you, it would simply be rude not to wear it. As it happens, Daisy smells exactly like the sort of perfume I would wear, and it’s in a bottle that looks just like the sort of thing I would own.
So it all works out very well. But now I have a conundrum.
You see, Marc Jacobs has come out with a new perfume, Lola:
Lola is not my name. But I wonder, if I wear Daisy, and I am Daisy, then if I wear Lola, will I become Lola? And what kind of Lola would I be? Personally, for a preference, it would be this one:
I’m not totally sure who she is, exactly, but I bet she wears some absolutely killer boots.
Besides, I always said that one day I would buy some perfume strictly on the basis of a cool bottle.
