Michael Jackson 最愛的香水....
以下是來自Karen Faye(MJ長期專屬的化妝師，從Thriller就開始合作)的訊息。Karen也有提到 『Black Orchid』，就像我們聽到的。所以有可能MJ有許多喜好，不清楚，也許你可加入Karen "Facebook"成為好友以得到更清楚的訊息。
"I have had many requests. Like music, our sense of smell activates our memories. Michael and I discovered many years ago (30) we shared a favorite scent. Those who were able to share the same space with Michael, BAL A VERSAILLES, by Jean Desprez, will remind you of him."
"Neither Obsession or Joop were a favorite. They may have been a quick buy from his security guards because BAV was not always easy to find."
"I ordered it online. I bought many bottles for him for London..."
"Michael treated the bottles of this scent like gold. He was always so thrilled to have it. He loved the big fancy bottle, and he liked to carry the tiny little bottles in his pocket. Michael Bush wasn't always so pleased when they leaked in his pocket."
Michael Bush(MJ長期的服裝造型師) 總是在香水溢漏在他口袋的時候不是很高興。
"He was wearing Black Orchid, but that was because it was easy to get. He switched immediately, when I found him BAV. He would ask me everyday if it had arrived after I told him I had ordered it."
"He was wearing BAV in the last weeks of his life."
"Michael and I shared the love of this scent before we even met. It was something we discovered about each other. It wasn't one of those perfumes you find at the department store, so I was always hunting for it for him. Michael Bush would search also. When we found a bottle it was like striking gold. Now with the internet, it makes it easier to track down, but back then it was a miracle to find!
The scent was created in 1962."
"Just GOOGLE it....many sites come up."
"in the video..it looks like ETERNITY." THIS VIDEO - Michael sprays himself w/ LOTS of perfume!!! Someone asked Karen about the perfume MJ was spraying on himself.
"There are many "notes" to BAV. the ones that I love and linger on me are the earthy ones, amber and vanilla."
"I bought a lot for Michael...I hope I left some for all of you."
"it is best to get the smallest bottle of perfume. Perfume smells different on everyone...and the eau de toilette spray bottles seem to leak and don't smell as good as the perfume."
最好是使用小瓶的perfume。Perfume用在每個人身上都有不同味道，瓶裝的"eau de toilette spray"似乎會滲漏，而且聞起來也沒有perfume這麼好。
"We never cared if a scent was made for a man or women. Michael didn't think it was fair we got all the good smells. LOL"
"if you should order it....get the smallest bottle of PERFUME not the eau de toilette. The perfume smells better."
如果妳要購買，建議從小瓶的perfume著手，不要從eau de tolitte開始。Perfume聞起來味道比較好。

The Differences Between Perfume, Eau De Parfum, Eau De Toillette and Body Splash
So, there is a difference between perfume, eau de parfum, eau de toilette, and body splash. This is one of those cases where you get what you pay for - perfume may be expensive but a little will go a longer way than the same amount of body splash.
