SOTD: Fifi Chachnil edt

Somedays you need that glamourous scent that has a million layers, my answer to that is what I think was one of the great surprises in the perfume world: Fifi Chachnil. When I put it on two images always pop into my head 1) The heavily kohled eyes of female stars in the 1960's and 2) one of my favorite color combos pale pink with black. What amazes me about Fifi is that it is so feminine and flirty but does not the usual cupcake fruity floral note to get the effect, instead it is smokey, powdery, ambered, with hints of greenery, rose, and citrus. It is highly addictive scent.

And now more song re-interpretations (going along with the whole 1960's theme):
The Original Led Zeppelin version of Dancing Days:

And the better version by The Stone Temple Pilots (I know I am sacriligious, but many agree):

I had tried Fifi in the middle of summer. Must give a fall test drive...though methinks I'll have both "Dancing Days" wandering through my "headspace" on this next go-round. ;)

I love how you are in a music immersion period...

Daily, Try it! I think you will enjoy it a lot.

Scentscelf, I have always enjoyed music but lately well I have been having the music bug. Fifi is definately not a summer scent; must try in fall.
