I Made Out in a European Church Scent Ideas
Do you ever pick up a bottle of perfume and say to yourself, “If I had sex in a pew this would be the memory juice of this time?” These are very Season 2 of Fleabag where she is initially blue-balled by the hot priest while giving confession. I think these are what devotional scents smells like. Kind of incense-y, kind of old wooden benchy—kind of naughty? If you are DTF in the chapel I think these scents are right for you and me. Spray a little holy water to get a little wet. Pay 2 pray, if you will. The range is from Diptyque’s L’eau Trois Eau De Toilette, January Scent Project’s Buruvu, House of Matriarch’s Sex Magic (and literally every other amazing House of Matriarch scent,) and a classic throughback that Iris and Carl Apfel wore throughout their love, Caron’s Yatagan.
As someone who always wanted to be a Catholic school girl but never got the chance and then instead grew up to be a complete fragrance psycho–I have a deep love for these scents. Backstory on the Diptyque, “At the top of Mount Athos, after a long hike, we sought shelter from the burning sun within the walls of a monastery. When we opened the doors, the scent of resinous shrub mingled with the incense and myrrh burned during the service.” Hot.
