  • discounrt perfume: I was also pleased to pick up a bottle of Calvin Klein Euphoria, a scent that suits me very well.I cannot abide stuff like Calvin Klein Escape for women, Clinique Happy, or Elizabeth Arden Sunflowers, but my favourite scents of the last decade have been Beautiful by Estée Lauder (which my grandmother and best friend also wore, a fact which does not have as much to do with my preference as one might imagine) and Prada’s eponymous scent. I don’t like it when I pass a woman who is wearing either of these, viewing her as a trespasser on sacred ground. I used to wear Kenzo Flower, but found it boring after a couple of days. This is similarly yawnworthy, with strong grapefruit scents (good) accompanied by cedar, musk, and other stuff that sounds like it would smell better than it does. After wearing it for a few hours, I asked Antoine what he thought. “Heavily chemical,” he said, hitting the nail on the head. September 28, 2006 at 5:06am Reply
