40 days and 40 Nights Of Beauty Cult Classics
Day 18 , Child Perfume
It should come as no surprise that Child has made it onto the cult classics list. It is beloved by celebrities and raved over in magazines. Style.com endorsed it as a cult classic fragrance last year.
It became a "sought after scent" when Jennie Garth from Beverly Hills 90210 proclaimed it to be a "man magnet".
It was rumored that the creator hand poured each bottle. I am sure the fuss created by Jennie Garth's comments enabled her to hire a staff or just made the hand pouring 1000 times more enjoyable.
Child is a simple pikake based scent.
There are other notes in the mix such as gardenia, jasmine, and honeysuckle. They manage to make brief appearances through the drydown.
But the center stage is dominated by the pikake note. It is coppertone-like but without the creaminess of Monyette Paris or the fun aspect from Bond's Fire Island.
I am a fan but it is not very complicated or unique.
Child can be purchased in the US at La Creme Beauty for $98
