Fairchild by Anya's Garden

By Tom

Anyone who thinks that natural perfumes aren't as rich, as lush or as transportive as ones made with commercial synthetics have never tried scents like the ones created by Anya McCoy. There several of hers that I really love. Fairchild is one of them, even if it isn't really me.

Fairchild is all about the tropics: a technicolor tropics straight out of an MGM musical, one of those lush ones with Dorothy Lamour in a sarong. It's all lush jasmine and citrus blooms and salty waves. Unlike some other scents that try to do the south-seas vibe, there's no cliché coconut, no eau de Coppertone. What there is there is an incredible richness that makes me think of a 40's scent, but not with a lot of throw. You have to lean into this one. Trust me, you'll want to.

Maybe this is me after all..

$100 for 15ML. I sampled from her website ($7 for .5ML)

Dear Tom, everyone:

Thank you for your lovely comments. I had considered retiring Fairchild, but it has a cult following, and I have reconsidered. It is a floral/citrus/salty/chypre and yes, one of a kind.

I adore that men find Fairchild appealing and interesting.
