I should start my own perfume line. It will be based on Persian cooking, mostly. There will be “Kabob Koobideh“, which smells like it just came off of the grill, “Persian rice”, which has the fragrant aroma of rice and saffron, and of course “Rosewater&Honey”, since that is how all Persian desserts are flavored. There will be more fragrances as the line expands, of course, but those will be the original products.
My target market is women, especially those who want to attract a man who is looking for a wife who has some of the more…traditional…skills. He doesn’t have to know that she ordered that ghormeh sabzi, rice, and faludeh from the local Persian restaurant. She will smell like she has been working in the kitchen all day. The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, right?
I will also target individuals who love Persian food but have not quite gotten the hang of making it correctly, college students who are away from home and miss their mother’s cooking, and people who really wish that they were Persian.
I’ll make a fortune.
