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)

With just a hint of sea-saltiness (Octopussy).

Bond will still smell like smokey casinos and vodka, but that can't be helped.

Funny... white trash morons also smell like smokey casinos and vodka.
