I got new samples from my fav indie perfume dealers and there’s been that headcanon thing going around about what characters smell like, so I thought I would do mock-BPAL style descriptions of some Utena characters!
(note: I have no real experience with the creator end of the perfume industry, so most of this is my bullshitting through my past experience of reading online descriptions ^^;)
Prince and Princess (aka roses, roses everywhere)
Dios: Roses gently dissolved in lavender, sage, and rosemary. Sweet spices, soft myrrh, and sandalwood constitute the backbone of this subtly masculine, faintly nostalgic scent.
Akio Ohtori: Dripping in lush roses, this scent is pure Akio, musky sex and spices soaked in sandalwood and leather. In the background, the gentle purr of machine oil calls.
Anthy Himemiya: Sweet, candied roses open a scent that slowly swirls into the darker hints of cardamon and cinnamon before dissolving into brazenly seductive amber and musks, tinged with just the slightest touch of sadness.
Utena Tenjou: Bright lemon, crisp grass, and the softness of fresh roses that gently give way to the clear scent of ozone and softly sweet musk. A clean, lightly feminine scent, almost unisex in its innocence.
When the first sentence of a book is all you need to read
Sam Vimes sighed when he heard the scream, but he finished shaving before he did anything about it.
whenever i’m sad i like to imagine what possible crime Steve Irwin’s ancestor committed to warrant him being sent to Australia like some Victorian gentleman escorting a lady to the zoo past the crocodile enclosure and going “do you see that great wyrm sunning itself there? quite a striking creature, is it not? I do believe I shall engage it in fisticuffs.”
