Tommy Hilfiger has released a new fragrance for men and women called Eau de Prep.
The ladies’ version, Tommy Girl Eau de Prep, has a heart of white rose, violet leaf and hawthorn, top notes of Bosc pear, pink pepper and green apple, and bottom notes of sandalwood, patchouli and musk.
I like to think I have the nose of a narcotics canine, but I did not take a whiff and draw those conclusions myself. I copied and pasted that description from the Internets, people.
This weekend I’m making it my mission to sample Prep, though. I have high hopes for this fragrance− probably too high. But I can’t help it. Tommy has come through for me in the past.
As you might know, scent is closely tied to memory (Nerd Alert: In high school, I did a science fair project on this phenomenon…called it “What Your Nose Knows”…got an “A” on that bad boy.) and I have many misty, watercolor memories of the way I was when I wore Tommy Hilfiger Freedom. Mainly, I was young, y’all!
It came out in 1999, when I was just a junior in high school. My classmates were wearing Tommy Girl or Cool Water, but not me. I thought Tommy Girl was way too heavy. And Cool Water was too light. But Freedom, a green floral, was just right.
I like green scents a lot. Over the years I’ve determined not many other women like green scents, though, because they’re always discontinued. Freedom is no exception.
By the time I was a senior in college, Freedom was nearly impossible to find. I moved on. Several times.
I’m faithful in my romantic relationships, but I am a whore when it comes to fragrance. Or, at the very least, a love ‘em and leave ‘em kind of gal.
I go from scent to scent, callously discarding one for another with no warning, in hopes of finding true love. (Tried that, too…True Love by Elizabeth Arden. For me, it was just a fling.)
I do have one scent I keep around. It’s a white floral I’ve worn off and on for years.
Is it “The One”?
Mmm…I think I’ll just know.
