Making Sense of a Scent

Smell is one of the most thought provoking senses, more than vision and touch. And because it is so one should always be scently Overdressed, it completes the look (and the memory).

The market is saturated by mainstream fragrances, however a few of the contemporaries will be making history. Serge Lutens, Frederic Malle and Parfumerie Generale are those who have held their own in a market infiltrated by “celebrity perfume”.

The iconic perfume houses however, hold a special place in Overdressed’s heart. Caron and Chanel (boutique perfumes of course!) have stood the test of time, and have yet to be rivaled by the Tom Fords of today. Mr. Ford, although talented, is a marketing machine (yes we are consumers and fall into that trap occasionally), but just saying…older is better!

To all those who are super particular about their scent, create your own at Le Labo Fragrances-if you’re lucky there will be a counter where you live.
