Trail Blazers - The choice between wearing a scent that introduces itself to strangers and one that's detectable only in an embrace is a very personal one. As April Long discovers, it's all about what you want to leave beghind. ... The fragrance trail -- technically, its sillage -- is perhaps one of the most misunderstood aspects of perfumery. Many people associate its presence with the type of walloping, intrusive fragrances that can turn a crowded cinema into a gas chamber. But it's actually something entirely different, and -- in intention, at least -- thoroughly elegant. The word sillage is French for "wake," like that left by a boat as it moves through water. I like to picture it as the vapor trail of an airplane as it crosses the sky: It's something that hangs in the air intangibly, and just as you begin to get a fix on it, it's gone. ... There are different levels of sillage -- that's why you can smell some people coming before they enter a room but have to lean in for a good wrist-sniff to detect a perfume on others. Some scents have what fragrance bloggers often refer to as "monster sillage" -- which I assume is what I experienced when I sprayed Clive Christian C for Women in my apartment, and even an hour later the smell was so strong I needed to open then doors and windows to let it out -- and some are so low-key they're almost trailless. The desirability of one or the other depends largely upon the personality of the wearer. ...bold sillage has a sort of room-filling 3-D effect, essentially extending the space you take up in the world, it requires a certain level of confidence -- maybe even self-importance -- to pull off.
(Long, April. "Trail Blazers." Elle Nov. 2011: 244-248)
