Get fragrance named after me. Refer to it as my “signature scent”
Rejected because: Bad track record. Every perfume that I’ve ever liked has been discontinued, save for the Body Shop’s White Musk.
Rejected because: Like I’m gonna encourage premature wrinkles. I don’t think so.
Rejected because: Sounds pretty labor intensive. Also, increased risk of wrinkles (see above).

Rejected because: This one I’m keeping.
Rejected because: Yep, this one is a keeper, too.
