Scents of Place

Scents of Place

Perfumers, take note: Before you set out to name your new scent, we have a few pointers.
1) When in doubt, name it after a destination.
2) Don't worry if you've never been there, as long as it sounds enticing.
3) Avoid Paris, Portofino, and New York -- they've been done.
