A is for…Aramis
According to The Big Bang Theory (the show, not the actual theory), Aramis is a cologne only desperate and socially awkward scientists would choose as a “woo” fragrance.
Leonard Hofstadter doused himself in a “dense molecular cloud” of Aramis for a date with neighbour Penny. I bet friend and woo fragrance connoisseur Howard Wolowitz keeps a decant in his well-organized collection of colognes*.
Another scientist, (the NOT desperate and socially awkward) Luca Turin gave four star ratings to Aramis, Aramis 900 and Tuscany per Uomo/per Donna in Perfumes: The A-Z Guide. His word may not be absolute, but if it’s good enough for an experimental physicist, it’s good enough for me.
The Aramis line was created by Estee Lauder in 1964. I love a number of Estee Lauder perfumes, so I could be easily woo-ed by Dr. Hofstadter. Maybe even Wolowitz…
Stay tuned for my impressions!
A is for…Audace
It seems many a lemming was born when I wrote about Rochas Audace for O Tannebaum!. If you can’t live without Audace, then visit The Perfumed Court*. 5 ml decants are on sale!
A is for…Academics
Next week, yours truly will become a student again. I’m only taking one course, but with a full-time job and A.D.D., one is enough for me. I am easily distracted so I won’t be around much during the study term, but I’ll try my best to keep up!
