The Sweetest Thing

Remember when I told you guys about my dandruff OF THE FACE?

Dandruff OF THE FACE is caused by a species of yeast that feeds on lipids, aka oils, aka fats. After an in-depth consultation with Dr. WebMD, I decided that cutting out delicious fatty foods for a few weeks was clearly the solution. (It is terrible and joyless and my skin looks exactly the same and I am stopping immediately.) During these fat-free weeks, I found myself compensating with sweeter perfume choices (lots and lots of L de Lolita Lempicka). That got me thinking: what’s the sweetest perfume I know?

Upon careful consideration, I think it’s a tie between Mancera Roses Vanille and Tauerville Rose Flash. Roses Vanille is much lighter, but both evoke literal sugar cubes marinated in rosewater. Even though just thinking about them gives me cavities, I actually enjoy smelling them on others. I know a lumberjack who wears Rose Flash, and I love the idea of him smelling like rosewater sugar cubes while swinging his axe. Very Monty Python!


Okay, your turn! What’s the most toothachingly sweet fragrance you’ve ever tried?
