Prince/Paisley Park scent...

So I've been reading a lot about what Prince and Paisley Park smells like. I only wish I had the experience to know! Assuming he liked his 3121 fragrance and the Salish Winds "Garden of Eden" incense, think its safe to say he liked sandalwood, patchouli, and jasmine floras? They both carrry these scents.

I have my first Garden of Eden waiting in my mailbox today. I can't wait to see what the fuss is about...

I've always been interested in this too. I've read that he wore feminine fragrances but that he loved natural/wood scents as well. A lot of people who met him associate the scent of lavender with him; I guess he wore that scent a lot. We recently learned that he used to clean the local Whole Foods store out of essential oils on a regular basis because he enjoyed mixing and matching the oils to create soothing scents.

I've never smelled his signature fragrance. I wish I could have.

Today there are lots of scented candles around Paisley Park but I dont know if they are the real scented ones that he used. Some of the candles that are there now are not even real candles.

Now I don't know if PP truly smelled like Garden of Eden, but if it did....oh my. This is not a smoky smell, but more of a crisp, light, floral/earthy smell. Simply divine!! Very relaxing. I chose lavender as my free sample scent. The sticks smell heavenly in the bag. I can still pretend that this what Prince smelled at home. I got 3121 off of Amazon for fairly cheap. It is very floral. At first strong, but I would catch light whiffs throughout the day.
