Monday Randomness: Lookalikes and a Prize Draw
It is not that I haven't managed to write a review over the weekend...it is just that I want to start the week on a fun note... And that is my story and I am sticking to it. Anyhow, here are some funny and at times startling similarities between perfume bottles, other perfume bottles and some unexpected objects. (Another post about bottle lookalikes can be found here.)
The Pebble / Computer Mouse Trend: Nicky Verfaillie Grain de Folie (1982) VS Donna Karan Black Cashmere (2002) VS IUNX L'Ether (2003)
The Sunny Side Up / Eye of Sauron Trend: Pierre Cardin Paradoxe (1983) VS Paloma Picasso Mon Parfum (perfume concentration) (1984)
The Home Improvement Trend: L'Artisan's new packaging (2006) VS Yves Saint Laurent L'Homme (2006) VS A Bolt
Guerlain Shalimar (1925) VS Fragonard Billet Doux (2006 reissue of an old scent, which, given that Fragonard was established in 1926, still would have come later than Shalimar). Imitation is the best form of flattery, no?
Revillon Carnet du Bal (1937) VS Apricot Preserve
Caron Urn VS Samovar
Francesco Smalto Full Choke (2004)
(Gasps in the audience...Would she really dare to...?)
Car Shift Stick. What did you think it looked like, eh? Tsk tsk tsk.
Speaking of IUNX, if you would like to be entered in a prize draw for a sample of one of the scents from this sadly defunct line, very summery No. 07 Eau Latine, let me know in your comment.
Have a great week, everybody!
