A Gasoline Perfume Is Hard To Create Says Christopher Brosius {Fragrant Reading}

No gasoline!

I happened on en entry by perfumer Christopher Brosius of CB I Hate Perfume regarding the difficulty of recreating a gasoline perfume. His is a commentary precisely on Kate Moss's desire to capture the alluring (for many as it turns out) scent of gas.

This made me remember that a certain number of flowers, like tuberose or jasmine, can naturally have top notes smelling like gasoline. Tubéreuse Criminelle by Serge Lutens developed this naturally-occurring facet for example....

according to the internet movie data base, kate moss loves the smell of petrol - otherwise known in america as "gasoline". the article goes on to suggest that miss moss is even interested in doing a gasoline based perfume of her own. well good luck to her.

i can say though from years of experience that she's not at all alone in this seemingly unusual olfactory preference. i've had and continue to get countless requests for exactly that smell.
