I believe that one of the senses that is the most neglected in design is smell. We are always concerned about how things look and feel, even how things sound, but when it comes to design, smelling if often forgotten. I am so grateful for the ability to smell. I think there are few things more pleasant in life than hugging someone, or greeting someone with a kiss and sensing the delicious smell of perfume. I love it when I put my hair up in a bun when it is still wet, and hours later let it down and the fragrance from my shampoo is still there. I love how powerful odors can be, and how they can trigger your memory so quickly. I will never forget the smell of my mom's house. Every single time I go there, as soon as I go through the threshold I can smell cleanliness and the sutil perfume of whatever home scent she has plugged in.
Anybody who knows me knows I LOVE food. Now that's an art form that takes smell seriously.
Anyhow, this post is actually about something that combines great design and great scent - perfume!
I love perfume, and never go a day without it. So here is a compilation of some of my favorite designs and all time favorite perfumes!
