I had the SS 2014 classic black cropped blazer in size 44 that I would wear to art shows all the time, always got lots of compliments on it. I kinda miss it but it was super constrictive on me when I started working out at the gym again so I gave it to a friend.Super cool blazers Bryan. I'll see if I can snap a few picks of my SLP blazer assemblage. They're a lot of fun, and I went TTS (44). They definitely have high armholes, not overly long sleeves, cropped rather short, and sometimes I have them taken in a touch at the waist for a little more of that Dior definition if you recall the hourglass aesthetic.
I do think that's interesting. The people who would wear Hedi fragrances can be broken down into 2 broad groups.These are just caricatures of who I would imagine to wear these fragrances.
This is what kind of feeling I think his Celine fragrances adds to an outfit.Although we think of taste as a separate sense to smell, the two are closely intertwined when it comes to food, and most of the subtle flavors we experience when we eat are detected by the nose. Taking this onboard, the AROMAFORK is an aroma-emitting device that enables chefs to serve up more complicated flavors than they can get from food alone.
I don't get how anybody could say Nightclubbing smells like cigarettes, cigarettes smell disgusting.I do think that's interesting. The people who would wear Hedi fragrances can be broken down into 2 broad groups.
However, for both groups, I feel like his fragrances really help complete an outfit. Or rather, his fragrances, like his other pieces, are "incomplete" until it is worn by someone. His fragrances add another layer/dimension to something that would otherwise be a purely visual experience for the audience. It is like those 4D theatres that enrich the movie by adding extra layers to the experience. I feel like when you're very meticulous with your presentation, you're transforming yourself into a performance art piece. I think when you live according to the narrative that you give yourself, you beautify both your body and mind.
- Hedi fans
- No knowledge of Hedi
- Just want a designer branded item from Dior/Celine
- Fragrance enthusiast who treats the fragrance as a standalone item
This image of molecular gastronomy is what I relate to when I think about someone who wears a fragrance with an outfit that is presented to an audience as a complete work of art to be consumed.

This is what kind of feeling I think his Celine fragrances adds to an outfit.
Parade - The drydown reminds me of a spa and the smell of hot clean towels. The clean bright citrus combined with the drydown gives off a very calm and composed feeling. This individual takes care of their body and soul. This scent can enhance an individual's approachability and trustworthiness.
Saint-Germain-des-Prés - The slight greeness in the opening invokes the feeling of the Jardin du Luxembourg abstractly. You get a sense of that you're surrounded by sweet flowers and you're smelling that feeling the powdery pollen. Hedi describes the sweetness as like marshmallow or a puff of icing sugar. The slight bitter greenness juxtaposed with the sweetness imparts a very subtle dangerousness to the wearer which creates a very alluring feeling. It draws people in, but they're also on their toes a bit, as if they were flies attracted to a Venus flytrap.
Cologne Française - Powdery, slightly smokey, fig tree scent. The powdery orris butter gives off a sophisticated elegant feeling. It doesn't smell like an old man thanks to the slight fruitiness from the fig in the opening, and due to the light-handed approach towards the composition. Hedi describes it as deceptively understated. This fragrances imparts a very slight introverted and aloof feeling to the wearer.
Dans Paris - The sweet cozy scent in the collection. Easily gives off a feeling of ease and comfort.
Eau de Californie - Smokey woods and clean delicate leather gives off an effortless casual vibe that leans a bit edgy. There is a sensual rawness that is tempered by the delicate powdery patina. It gives off a feeling of someone who is sexy without even trying.
La Peau Nue - most girly but leans sophisticated, not my cup of tea so I didn't really dissect it
Reptile - Dangerous but addictive. Leans masculine, but there is this delicate vulnerability present which helps give complexity and prevents someone from seeming one dimensional. Although the there is this edginess, it can't help drawing people in closer to want to understand this individual. Someone with layers and depth to be discovered. The stardust and glitter, as described by Hedi is beautiful.
Black Tie - There is sweetness from vanilla that is anchored by woods and moss that gives it some severity and seriousness, but still there is an approachability thanks to the vanilla. It gives off a feeling of competence without being hardheaded.
Nightclubbing - Smokey cigarette smell that dries down to this powdery sweet suede scent. It almost gives off an impression of being the least approachable, but those who dare to approach will find subtle vulnerability. This is almost olfactory armour in modern anti-smoking society. This is probably the most introverted feeling scent in the collection. However, context matters. For those who enjoy smelling secondhand smoke, I can see how comforting and sensual this can be. Cigarettes after sex.
