PERFUMES FOR THE POOR

 

audeoud parfums pauvres perfumes poor

 

In 2011, in the 18th arrondissement of Paris where I live, I bought perfumes called Solitude, La Chute (the fall), Querelle (quarrel), Predator in cheap diy shops. They were the first of my collection 'Perfumes For The Poor' now about 100 pieces rich.

None of them are counterfeits, even if some cleary reference well known bottles andbrands. They are chosen for their name, and their price (around or under 5€). They are meant to contain nice smells and offer a form a well being and pleasure but the words they display vary from weird to extremely violent:
Bishop, British Emotion, Relinquish, Nob-luck, Maniac, Untrue Lies, My Manager, Dispute, Solitude, Tender Stalking, Phobia Men, Dangerous swamp, Expire...
Who came up with such names? Who are they adressed to, if not poor consumers, who don't really understand what they read, or maybe who are just worth it...

Sentences are being written on the shops shelfs and in the installations.


This piece is part of a large serie about 'porter' translated in English by to wear (for clothes and perfumes), to carry a burden (porter une charge), to convey a message (porter un message), to bear his name (porter le nom de son père ou de son mari) to perform a charater (porter un personnage à la scène ou à l’écran (). A voice that carries well, translates well in French.
