Thanks to an incredibly helpful comment thread on bois de jasmine I was given a bunch of recommendations for perfumes that Effie Trinket might wear. If you recall, this question is what got me into perfume sampling in the first place (which has been an amazing, if expensive, new hobby). And you know what?

I FINALLY FOUND IT!!!!!!!!

The perfume that I believe Effie would wear is Insolence by Guerlain.

It's classic with a twist of something bright and fruity and the whole thing changes by the minute, but it also has those smells I associate with cosmetics. I feel like it would blend beautifully with her wigs and powders and become something uniquely HER. Perfect blend of BRIGHT BRIGHT BRIGHT but underpinned with other, richer things. In other words, EFFIE!

Here. Have some reviews that describe the scent better than I can.

Oh man, I am SO HAPPY right now! \o/

Yay!

Also experiencing weird dissonance because I don't identify with Effie really at all but Insolence sounds so fascinating that it's going in my Surrender to Chance wishlist. If you don't mind my asking, what makes Effie so significant to you? I'd love a new perspective on her.

ETA: Did you try the EDP, the EDT, or both? (If both, which did you like better?)

Hi! This isn't directly related to this post, I'm afraid, but would it be all right if I added you to my circle?
