The inspiration behind the comp

Paul Smith has no time for doom and gloom. His unusual – almost childlike – way of looking at things has seen him championed as the British designer who constantly surprises, constantly evolves. He delights in colour and in the unexpected. In design terms, his collections are playful and joyous, full of energy and life. They make you smile. They are never short on optimism.
It was this quality that Paul Smith wished to capture with his new scents: Paul Smith Optimistic.
 “I wanted to create a fragrance that bottled the spirit of optimism – that captured the youthful enthusiasm and energy I see around me every day. It’s about time that someone made a positive statement,” he says.

Paul Smith Optimistic for Her
A feminine fragrance that combines floral tenderness with a fruity top note. It is fun and yet familiar as well – exciting and yet somehow comforting, playful, yet decidedly feminine.
The ingredients are simple and youthful, designed to evoke a feeling of joyful pleasure and elegance.
 Top notes – A colourful fragrance: Optimistic for Her is inspired by pink shades and fuses pink berries, pink grapefruit, juicy litchi and elegant sweet peas.
 Heart notes – An upbeat fragrance: Optimistic for Her features energetic mandarin freshness twisted with the vitamin kick of cranberry and the soft but vibrant raspberry “macaroon” accord.
 Dry down notes – An idiosyncratic fragrance: Optimistic for Her is unusual and full of character with its touch of orris and incorporation of distinctive patchouli.

Paul Smith Optimistic for Him
A masculine fragrance that combines an outdoorsy freshness with a sensuality that appeals to girls. Essentially it is a classic male fragrance in the Fougère (“fern-like”) family of scents, underpinned by a happy, seductive quality. As with the women’s fragrance, the ingredients are simple and youthful, but here they are designed to evoke a feeling of fun, pleasure and seductiveness.
 Top notes – An upbeat fragrance: Optimistic for Him has a vigorous and joyful impact with sparkling citrus and mysterious and exotic pepper and cardamom.
 Heart notes – A fresh fragrance: Optimistic for Him gives an impression of virile marine freshness through its sage and geranium notes.
 Dry down notes – A sensual fragrance: Optimistic for Him has a bottom that is warm, woody and seductive, with cedar, vetiver and amber.

So get snapping and maybe you could be the winner, you just have to be Optimistic! I'm sure you will be able to come up with something, just think of something that gives you hope, makes you laugh. It make be right in front of you, plus if you don't try you will never know.
