We learn when we’re young that we shouldn’t judge a book by its cover. The idiom holds true for perfume, too.
This month, we start with a cologne. You read that right: a cologne. Sounds like something for a man? Nope. “Cologne” is just what we call a lightly concentrated perfume, no matter what the marketers want you to believe.
Our second choice has “violet” in the name, but don’t look for the flower. This one is all about violet-colored plums.
Our final feature is sweet and charming at first sniff, but the perfumer had a little naughtiness in mind.
Put your preconceptions aside. Let your nose be your guide.
