Three years after our last round of Filibuster Fragrances, courtesy of then-Senator Wendy Davis, yesterday’s Senate filibuster gives us another chance to brainstorm! Which fragrance would you choose to carry you through a filibuster?
Lasting power is obviously a major consideration (the longest filibuster on record was over 24 hours). So maybe a powerhouse like Angel or Aromatics Elixir? Would you opt for something with energizing notes, like coffee (Jo Malone Black Vetyver Cafe, L’Artisan Parfumeur Noir Exquis) or yerba maté (Annick Goutal Duel, Project Renegades Geza Schoen)? You could even keep it topical with some Juliette Has A Gun. Me, I think I’d go for something like Chanel Cristalle, a green chypre with lots of backbone. Might be a little too fleeting, though.
As always, please chime in regardless of your stance on the bill under debate. Disrespectful comments of any nature toward other commenters will be severely side-eyed.
