Saturday Poll: What Do You Think of Celebuscents?

Due to my recent mini-hiatus there was no Saturday Poll last week but if you can cast your mind back to the week before you will remember that we focused on a ‘clash of the titans’ question – Guerlain vs Chanel.

Guerlain were the runaway winners, gaining two whole thirds of the vote. The success of Guerlain in the poll seemed to be down to their variety of styles and Chanel appeared to suffer due to their relatively consistent signature, if you love it – great, if you don’t – poor you!

On to this week’s poll…

The Poll

Yesterday I review Madonna’s first perfume ‘Truth or Dare‘ and it got me thinking about celebuscents and what the general perfume-loving population’s opinion of them is. I can probably figure out the answer but my readers have been known to surprise me and of course there is nothing quite like a good discussion involving celebrities…

So, how do you feel about celebuscents? Do you love them? Loathe them? Or do you not give two hoots? Register your vote and let me know your thoughts in the comments box below!

My Answer

I opted for “some are good but the majority can ‘do one'” simply because I would be lying if I said all were bad, or on the flip-side I couldn’t bring myself to say that all are good either. The truth is, or my truth is should I say, that the majority are uninspired, insipid cash cows for quasi-celebrities whose status as an icon of some sort is questionable to say the least.

There are of course the goodies, specifically offerings from; Tilda Swinton, Rossy de Palma, Madonna, Sarah Jessica Parker, J Lo (the earlier ones) and Daphne Guinness, and maybe there are others that I haven’t mentioned or tried that are also worthy of our noses. So yes, some are good but the majority are hideous.
