Dolce & Gabbana Go to a Sex Therapist

“If a fragrance is announcing desire, what it’s doing is altering you to pay attention to the potential, for inviting you to experience aspects of your desire.”
Does this make any sense, grammatically or otherwise?

Makes perfect sense. Flows beautifully, too . . . (rolls eyes)

Another case of an Italian house unwilling to hire a professional translator. ("Posso parlare! Posso farlo!" insisted someone on the staff who studied English in high school for a couple of years...)

Cf. Prada's "Infusion d'Homme," which should be the name of Jean-Baptiste Grenouille's signature scent. ;-)

Bryan Ross:

What's even more alarming is Stephen Snyder, M.D., describing the sensual effect of tuberose. He makes it sound like the essential oil version of Rohypnol, or a potion that turns people into submissives.

Heh heh.

Nice conjecture. It would explain the disjointed nature of Dr. Synder's quotes.

Plus, D&G could have hired a more "on point" sex therapist. Too bad Robert Stoller isn't still around; he wrote an entire book on the psychological "scripts" driving sexual excitement.

Of course, if the scent has mouse urine notes, I'm their man . . .
