this is what i see when i log onto my ebay account. it creeped me out a little, then made me giggle. these would all be great for dotditwell day-2008!!!
something else: i've been obsessed with fragrances and perfumes for years. my sense of smell is legendary. when my little sister was a baby, i could tell when she had a dirty diaper from the other side of the house. i still can! (lmao.) i was called "eagle nose" for years. pre-poopy baby sister, my parents would put me to bed and then covertly order a pizza. i'd wake up and smell it, and sneak out of my room to demand they share.
one perfume line i've loved is demeter. they had a "fizzy ginger ale" scent that really smelled fizzy! the most popular scent they make it "dirt" (brad pitt wears it!) this website has a list of every fragrance. i'd love to try play-doh, paperback, snow, & wet garden.
this interview amazed me. it's the guy who created the demeter company, but left to start his a new company called "i hate perfume." he takes the philosphy behind demeter a step further, with scents like "in the library", and "wild hunt" (Wild Hunt is the scent of an ancient forest in the heat of a summer afternoon. It is a blend of Torn Leaves, Crushed Twigs, Flowing Sap, Fallen Branches, Old Leaves, Green Moss, Fir, Pine and Tiny Mushrooms)
i guess besides being a music geek, horror movie nerd, & architecture dork, i'm now a perfume dweeb!
ok, props to my poopy diaper sister for my blogging inspiration today....
