My interest in perfume has been chronicled extensively on this blog (there's even a tag for it, which should make finding my perfume-related posts a little easier--UPDATE: alas, those posts were on my defunct Vox blog). About a year ago, I began to consider a baseball and perfume pairing that I call "Vida Blue." Here are my notes for three "Vida Blue" fragrances:
Grass and Loam
Cocoa, Star anise, Sandalwood
"Spring Training" is promising, the other two not so much. But in my perfumista fantasy, Minka Kelly and Derek Jeter are the models and spokespeople for "Vida Blue" (although Jeter has his own line and would probably consider this a conflict of interest).
While I'm in the mood for sharing, here's my recipe for "Thistles," a fragrance inspired by the poetry of Esther Raab.
Lily or Rose
