Smells Like Bond Girl
A new fragrance called 007 girl is being advertised by Avon. Yes, Avon. Fleming must be spinning in his grave. It is advertised with a strangely over-made-up shot of Strawberry Fields/Gemma Arterton, and smells of orchid, vanilla, cashmere, orange blossom, jasmine, freesia, amber, patchouli and musk. Um, wow. I would rate this one, sight unseen (or scent unsmelled), "possible to resist".
To me the scent of a bond girl would be simple, sexy and have something to do with the franchise, like:
1) Honey (Honey Ryder/Ursula Andress)
2) Roses (Rosa Klebb/
3) and, um, fresh cut hay.... (Pussy Galore/Honor Blackman)
