French Scents

*sniff* *sniff* Hmmmmmmm smells like France. Ummm okay, I tried to make this sound normal but I’ll admit, this is a weird post. However, I was thinking about the five senses, and if possible, I want to try to evoke all five of them. Let’s try it and see where it goes.

I already mentioned how the French are known for their fashion so of course we need to talk about perfume/cologne. In France, the perfume/cologne you wear defines you so choose wisely. I would love to be able to try to explain what the different perfumes/colognes smell like but honestly, expensive perfume/cologne all smells the same to me. I’ll list the top five most mentioned brands and if you want, you can watch some commercials for that brand (I personally love to watch their commercials; they’re so over the top). The first two are clearly the most popular brands and everything after that I’m less certain of.

#1 Chanel

First you get the ad I would expect from Chanel:

Next, they have an inspirational video:

And they even have one for people that enjoy Kristen Stewart (yes, that Kristen Stewart) going crazy!:

#2 Dior

I read the biggest difference between Chanel and Dior is that Chanel was more formal and Dior caters more to a younger audience. You can see that in their commercials:

But they also have the more stereotypical ad too:

#3 Guerlain

#4 Chloe

#5 Yves Saint Laurent

Finally, an ad featuring a guy (I promise I’m trying to make my male readers feel included too)

If you’re interested in the psychology of perfume (I don’t know how accurate it is but it was interesting none the less):

And for you chefs and foodies out there, he’s a list of traditional French spices:

And then of course, statistically, a little more than twice the amount of people smoke cigarettes in France versus the United States. With the most popular brand being Gauloises.
