Right now, your reaction from my statement can be:
- I know, right?
- Girl, what cha talkin' 'bout?
- What's happening to My Makeup Blog lately? That girl has been on a bashing trip.
- Really, I have no idea what you're talking about (preferably, the statement should be spoken with a British accent)
- Dude, I don't care!
Did you mark your choice? Oh, you did? Good, write it down somewhere, ok? Wait, don't tattoo it! I didn't say tattoo, I said write.
While browsing the perfume counter, that realization hit me square in the head. More and more perfume companies have created spin-offs from the greatest or slightly alter the packaging of their best-selling perfumes. I've sniffed a few and needless to say, they are more of the same. Below are the three examples:
|Chanel no. 5 Eau Premiere (source)|
|Tresor in Love (source)|
|Daisy in the Air (source)|
Please notice that these perfumes come from luxurious brands and were not "created" by celebrities. Although some of them are more modern renditions of the old and famous perfumes, I can't help but notice how lackluster they are when compared with the older versions. I guess brands are more focusing on gaining a younger crop of consumer by offering younger smelling scents. However, I don't think that's necessary. Just look at Guerlain Shalimar. Like Chanel no. 5, it is a timeless scent. However, nobody dares to alter it. Shalimar is what it is. Any alteration would smell ridiculous to me.
What do you think about this trend? Would you buy a newer edition of a classic scent or stick with the original? Please let me know. Also, if you wrote down your choice from the above multiple-choice question, please feel free to share.
