Scent Times Two

Scent Times Two

Fragrance is very personal. 

Scents have the ability to stir powerful memories (good and bad, ha) and really play on how we respond to people. There can be something very cool about a signature fragrance, owning that smell and people coming to know you by it… A little of Marilyn Monroe and her Chanel No.5

So, we’re not completely sure how we feel about coordinating a scent with our significant other. Couples’ fragrances are having a moment and, just so you know, they’re when two scents (one feminine, one masculine) are sold as a pair. And when you’re near a couple (third wheels of the world, holler!), they work in tandem to create a blended scent. It’s a little like couple tattoos in the way that you put it on your skin, but way less permanent ;)

What do you think? Too much? Or kind of adorable?

Perfumes, Coolife.

  • Scents are somewhat different, depending on the individual’s chemistry, so I’m not sure how well this concept would work. Someone was bound to come up with the idea though!

  • I’m not sure matching scent with your partner works (personally also not so into the idea of matching tattoos). The idea sounds interesting though and sure can sell if advertised to the right people.

  • Scents are so personal. I wore Elizabeth Arden Red Door for years so much so that people identified the scent with me and a boyfriend after our breakup suffered horribly when he found his mother wore that same scent. I loved it but suddenly it seemed young somehow unfitting.
    My mom as if magically knowing returned from a trip with a Chanel fragrance. I now go between three from Chanel and while they haven’t had the effect of Red Door I do love them when I wear them for various events and situations.

    As for couples so cute but so difficult to match.

  • I’m not a fan of defining scents as “masculine” or “feminine”. This is too predictable. The result is that most women wear similar floral/citrus scents and men wear musky scents. How boring if we all smell alike! I like unisex fragrances like those of Le Labo and Aesop.

  • Coordonner je ne sais pas mais il se trouve que le parfum de mon homme Avant-Garde de Lanvin est sur lui totalement irrésistible, il l’a choisi lui-même c’est un peu différent de ce qu’il choisit d’habitude. Et j’ai été surprise car il est exactement ce que j’ai envie de porter, moi !
