It’s the day after St George’s Day so I have a year to gather ideas, build a design and make it ready to release a fragrance for St George’s Day 2013.
This idea started when a friend of mine bemoaned the fact that St George’s Day isn’t much celebrated and wondered whether corporate sponsorship might change that . . . I rather flippantly asked if, failing a big corporation, a tiny one-man firm would do.
Soon we got to wondering what a dragon might smell like at which point I thought the discussion belonged here and made this post.
Here is what we collected on Facebook:
More from Facebook, this time it’s Kate with the good ideas:
something with the fragrance of a cox apple perhaps
rose and apple might just work
with english oak as a base if that’s possible!
Me: Rose and apple I can certainly do – English Oak I’m pretty sure isn’t available as a natural oil, but I might well be able to create a convincing scent using other woods. Nice idea!
On the dragon idea – you could add something fiery or spicy
Me: I was thinking smoky, but I could also give it a touch of chilli – even a little of that tends to make everyone nearby sneeze though . . .
