Clive Christian Number 1 is the most expensive fragrance for men; but, it is worth it. It makes you smell like someone who can afford 1800 dollars for 30 ml of perfume.

The same perfume can smell completely different depending upon the person. For example: Apply musk to an attractive person and the scent is haunting and mysterious. Apply musk to a plain person and everyone thinks that person works at an animal mortuary.

Archaeologists know that perfumes have been around for at least four thousand years from the ruins of a perfume factory in Cyprus. The solvent used was olive oil. My assumption is that the most popular scent was “Salad Dressing”…

Ambergris, a coveted ingredient in fine perfumes, is found in the vomit of whales. It’s been said that Pinocchio, after leaving the belly of the whale, not only became a real boy, but also had an odor that was both sensual and mysterious…

If whale vomit is not your bag, other ingredients to perfume include deer musk and the contents of a civet cat’s anal glands… because nothing says, “sexy lady” more than smelling like a cat’s butt.

Do not rub your wrists together after applying perfume because it “crushes” the fragrance. Also, if you are Wonder Woman, it might create a shock wave that will destroy all those around you…

The human nose can detect nearly a trillion different possible smells. Of those scents, nearly eighty percent of them can only be found in a New York taxi cab.

To become a professional perfumer, one has to be able to recognize over two hundred and fifty scents. There was a huge graduation scandal, last year, when it turned out one of the students was sniffing another student’s exam.

  1. if the size of the ambergris lump is small, it is ejected as fecal matter, perfume scientists have not established which one smells better the vomit or the fecal variant.
    but whales are current subject of interest, ‘perfume’ however always reminds me of the wonderful novel of the same name.

  2. On a side note… while visiting France we went to the perfume capitol of the world, Grasse. There we met a “Nose”. He worked in an airtight glass office, and because he had perfect olfactory senses, drank no coffee, tea or alcohol. He also wore no deodorant or used any soap. Which might explain why he was in a airtight office.

    1. You liked the Wonder Woman one? I was frantic, this morning, trying to figure out something to replace it. I do NOT know my readers… well, my readers blog so I guess I do know them… somewhat… a lot, actually. I’ll stop talking, now…

      1. Haha – you know it! When I was a kid I used to spend HOURS spinning around transforming into the mighty Wonder Woman. Cracked me up to be taken back. Not too many Wonder Woman references these days 🙂
