How cool is this perfume company? I've wasted hours just reading the descriptions.

From the Wonderlust collection.

BAYOU
A lazy, warm deep green scent with a thick aquatic undertone: Spanish moss, evergreen and cypress with watery blue-green notes and an eddy of hothouse flowers and swamp blooms.

HAVANA
Date palm, dried tobacco, snakeroot, and leather.

PORT-AU-PRINCE
Dark, decadent and incomparably exotic: the rich scent of buttered rum flavored with almond, bay, clove and sassafras.

Or the Illyria Collection, inspired by Shakespeare's plays.

ANTONY
The embodiment of Classic masculinity. A warrior's scent: the green hills and grasses of the battlefields, the resinous incense from the prayers to his Gods [sic], and a touch of the musky leather of his armor. Ambergris and frankincense with sage, and basil.

LADY MACBETH
The essence of ambition, covetousness and manipulation: sweet Bordeaux wine, blood red currant, thyme and wild berries.

OBERON
Orchid, white musk, and bergamot wafting over juniper berries, with a gentle touch of soft, earthy patchouli.

I'm trying very hard to remember that hand-mixed perfumes are not essential to my existence (indeed, up until now I've done very well without them), but I'm not sure I believe it. I do really love perfume. Screw you, asthmatics.

I've now been inventing scents for characters. And myself, of course--I think I'd be sandalwood, olive oil and gardenia. Chase would be lemon, lemon blossom and cloves. Frannie would be sweet pea, lilac, musk and a trace of white pepper.

What would y'all be?
