“Open a jar of Givenchy’s Skin Drink and inhale. It’s one of the most wonderful scents I’ve ever smelled, the fragrance of a newborn mixed with the scent of a flower still in half bud. It’s an all-but-invisible scent, as beautiful as it is translucently unpalpable. I call Françoise Donche, Givenchy’s olfactologist in Paris, and ask, “C’mon, tell me — who is this?” After a bit, she does. The scent of this cream was created by a perfumer named Pierre Bourdon.” Read the rest of the article about scented skin care by Chandler Burr in New York Times. Thanks to Miriam for the link!
Speaking of scented skin care, if you have not tried Annick Goutal rose scented Crème Splendide, I would highly recommend it. It is simply wonderful on all counts (other than its old-fashioned screw top jar packaging). More information is available from Annick Goutal website.
