The Scent of Departure

This is pretty cool. As a huge fan of traveling, but not on perfumes in general, this is making me reconsider!

The Scent of Departure concocted by Globetrotter perfumer Gérald Ghislain and Magali Sénéquier (designer), captures each city’s smell, although I am sure they made it a lot more romantic than literal ‘smells of the city’ (e.g. NYC has sparkling and sourish notes of apple instead the smell of car exhaust fumes and pee).

I’d be interested in smelling these, if I ever came across them. What a smart idea of marketing perfume!

Sherry of Save. Spend. Splurge.

Am my own Sugar Daddy. Am a millionaire at 36 after getting out of $60K of student debt in 18 months, a little over a decade earlier, using I have worked 50% of my career (taking 1-2 year breaks), and quadrupled my income within 2 years of graduating, going from $65K to $260K with an average lifetime savings rate of 50%. I have 11 side incomes that are on track in 2020 to make me $50K - $75K. I could retire today if I wanted, but love my work-life balance as a freelancing consultant in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). I am all about balance - between time and money, and also enjoying my money. I also post daily on Instagram @saverspender.

    Very interesting!!! If I saw something like that I’d definitely want it as a remembrance.. I love associating scents with memories.

    When I was younger I remember having this lotion that I used to smell when I was obsessed with Justin Timberlake. I somehow ended up thinking that JT smelled like that. I was in teeny-bopper heaven!

    1. Mochi & Macarons

      Hahah! That is awesome.

      I’m really not a fan of perfumes but I am curious about these.

      I tend to lean towards essential oils. Lavender mostly…

    oh I like that! When I was in Amsterdam I was like, “what is that smell??” and then I realized it was flowers haha. Flowers EVERYWHERE. Brussels smelled like french fries and waffles. Frankfurt smells like… money.
