A meeting with the client in 10 minutes. The prototypes were all in place, waiting. An empire style bottle in cream porcelain: Intimacy. Mmm. A yellow monstrosity with enormous writing on it: Honey. Whoever had passed that for the client to see? A clear glass bottle shaped like an apple with a picture of Eve on it: Desire. Not much better. A bottle with an octagonal base and a green and grey fern pattern: Secrets. Not bad. A simple blue glass cylinder with a dandelion seed-head: Liberty. She liked it.
Good name for a perfume. Marketable. Didn’t we all want it?
This week’s 100wcgu at Julia’s place: Liberty, Empire, Apple, Yellow, Enormous. I actually dreamt of this challenge. Unfortunately, in my dream the words were different, “emerald” being one.

That was a great interpretation of the prompt. Very imaginative. I could really visualise the bottles of perfume on the table.
Im so glad, as I actually found this challenge quite hard.
Think I would quite like liberty 🙂
Very imaginative and yes, you’ve sold it to me!
At this rate I should start a business. 😉
Really like this; clever use of the words in a way that the prompt words disappear naturally. Liberty would work well as a perfume name too! My ideas so far have been disastrous! Maybe later…
Thanks. I found it very difficult myself.
Very convincing vignette – and the words fit in so smoothly.
Thank-you. I liked your “Empire state”.
A really original take on the prompt, would never have thought of that. Very convincing, well written. Great!
Thanks. The stories surprisingly varied this week, given the prompt is so very much NYC.
I love that musing, reflective tone. and yes, I’d like to check out the scents as well…something about the names with the bottles that intrigues! nicely done~!
Thanks. I’ll let you know when we get in a shipment ;-).
This never even occurred to me. What makes this so readable is that all the words from the prompt disappear into the piece so effortlessly you’ld never know which ones they were. Nothing seems contrived and I enjoyed it. It takes a woman’s touch to think of perfume 😉
Thank-you very much.
This was clever. I really enjoyed it.
How kind of you.
Very neatly done. I like it.
Something a little different, well done. x
Thanks a lot.
