Perfuming A Video and GIVEAWAY

Hey Hey Stink Junkies,

I have this great blog girlfriend in the USA who writes a blog called Sweet Mother about her amusing and often amazing life as a lesbian comedienne in love. She offers a raw and funny, sometimes inspirational and usually thought provoking blog almost every day. The other day she added this video that you may have seen; OK Go- Here It Goes Again. A rocking little tune that will definitely make your feet tap, head nod etc but the guys in the video and the video itself are hilarious and I thought we could fragrance them for fun.

Pink Pants Guy: To my mind this guy is fearless and unrestrained (come on, Pink Skinny Jeans) and I think he’s probably pretty boundary pushing so I am giving him a choice between Annick Goutal Sables and Opium by YSL, both loud and fearless, and LOUD.
Purple Vest Guy: Looks a little more restrained and maybe even a bit old fashioned so I am giving him Christian Dior’s Eau Sauvage but he’s a musician so the Fraicher Cuir flanker that I think is endearing because it is a soft, leathery and sexy masculine frag but so old fashioned.
Black Blazer Guy: This guy is the most regularly dressed, like he put his foot down saying, “No stupid, weirdo, freaky crap clothes for me thanks.” I’m thinking conservative but a rare memory find like Caron’s Royal Bain de Caron.
Pink Shirt, Check Vest Guy: This guy is a sex mad lothario, I don’t know why I think it but there you have it. He is probably sporting Kouros by YSL or Givenchy Gentlemen or maybe Rocobar by Hermes. Maybe this is the perfumista of the crew and he is wearing an Olympic Orchid or Aftelier?

    Oh Portia ! Being a fitness instructor I found this video clever , funny and extremely well choreographed ! I simply love the creative use of a treadmill and never once do they trip or fall ! I love the part where they jump between treadmills , I wonder how many takes it took to film this clip ,
    I’m going to be really cheeky and douse pink pants with jovan musk sex appeal

    OMG, baby! I LOVED this! Black blazer guy reminded me of that scene in 2 1/2 Men where Alan and Charlie are at the bar, dancing with the hot babes? And Alan, bless his heart, is parsing the steps out loud (andturn, and turn, andturnandturnanddipandsliiide)…you can just feeel Bb guy counting the steps, which is actually sweet. He needs some hips. I would put him in D&G Light Blue. Purple vest guy is old(er) and I can feel his pain. You see him thinking ‘fuck. I have to GET DOWN ON THE FUCKING FLOOR AND NOT FALL OFF THIS STINKIN’ TREADMILL. Should’ve done yoga this morning” But he’s game and I love him for it! I would put him in…….Carnal Flower Hair Mist. Yeah, he doesn’t have ‘hair’ per se. Ask him if he gives a shit. He is a Sex Scandal waiting to happen, baby!!!

    CheckMan. “oh, CheckMan. I think I love you most of all”….he has a “joie de sqoo it” that delights my cranky soul. I am putting him in Beloved. Yes. Beloved on a man with some ‘tude? Lawd help a gal. Really swoony.

    Pink pants is skinny, silly and cute as a whippet. He wants to be Totally Fab but he’s trying not to fall off those treadmills so his inner nerd is coming through, as he plots the points so he can hit his mark. Feelin’ your pain, bruddah. Feelin’ your pain. So I am going to put you in Uncle Serge’s Cranky Carnation!

    Evil Auntie Anita loves you ALL!

    What a funny them to perfume those guys and enter the giveaway. Here I come.

    Pink Pants Guy – if he can sport pink pants he can do some Pretty Fruity by Montale. He risks in fashion so let him risk wearing a ladies perfume

    Purple Vest Guy – a musician huh? Well, maybe Lyric Man, or Ramon Monegal Cuirelle? Who knows what kind of music plays in his soul.

    Black Blazer Guy – the most regular one… Do you think he would do OK in some vintage Vol de Nuit? I bet he would rock it!

    Pink Shirt, Check Vest Guy – how about L’Artisan Voleurs de Rose, or Chanel Bois des Iles?

    I follow by WordPress 🙂

    That was so much fun! OK, here goes….

    Pink pants has that slightly goofy vibe of Bones, Wild Thing #1, so he needs something fun and not too serious, he’d have a blast in Byredo’s Pulp.
    Pink shirt/check vest is chock-full of personality, and belongs in something by Etat Libre d’Orange. Secretions Magnifique is kind of obvious, so instead let’s go for Vierges and Toreros. If anyone can pull off leather and tuberose, it’d be this guy.
    Black blazer is not quite as conservative as he initially appears (seriously, check out his shoes), so I say intellectual with a wicked sense of humor…. Le Labo’s Iris 39.
    And purple vest is my type as I’m a spaz who’s attracted to the mellow men, and still waters do run deep. I put him in Sycomore, just because it’s so fantastic on The Engineer and purple vest guy reminds me of my other half.

    That video is so much fun and made my day! I can’t imagine the hours it took to choreograph and practice til it looked so smooth!
    I have a hard enough time deciding what scent I should wear each day, so I’m not even going to attempt scenting these talented guys.
    Thanks for the pick-me-up!!

  7. Penny Cascio says:

    OH HYSTERICAL!!! I’ve seen that one before, and i must say, soooo cleverly done!
    I’ve read some of the comments, and seen that others (including you gorg) have given them delicious scents, but I found it such a comical 70’s retro skit, that I feel they actually deserve comedic, retro 70’s smells…. I’m thinking BLUE STRATOS… Oh yes….. And BRUT 33…. know where I’m coming from??….. How about OLD SPICE?? Yeah baby yeah… Do I make you horny baby YEAH!!!
    Love you Portia, what a giggly start to a rainy Friday xxxxxx

  8. Kandice says:

    This was a blast! I’m new to the whole world of perfume obsession, so I can’t even begin to pick fragrances for these guys. Just wanted to say thanks Portia for brightening my day. You always make me smile, no matter what kind of day I’m having. (BTW did anyone else notice that the checked vest guy with pink shirt is the only one singing?! The others just seem to be trying to not fall off!) BTW, just started following via email 🙂

    That was so much fun!
    Okay here goes.

    Pink Pants Guy: Oh yes he adores J’Adore by Dior. Shut the Dior he is no bore!

    Purple Vest Guy: Yes old fashioned but he also reads Luca Turin so he is yearnin’ for some classic old Grey Flannel. No wait don’t change the channel.

    Black Blazer Guy: Don’t let that blazer fool ya. He has a closet filled with Guerlain lady scents and his favorite flavor of the day is that sassy Samsara, but when the lights are low he gets jiggy with Jicky. Now things are going to get icky.

    Pink Shirt, Check Vest Guy: Yes he is a sex-a-maniac and his frag is down right nasty pants. He dares to wear Secretions Magnifiques! Call the paramedics I think I am gonna be Sique!
