hello, @wilddark9!

i think it was something ash himself adopted bc he was constantly being compared to an wild, dangerous but beautiful animal — the lynx.

fishu-banana:

this probably has been said before but i wanna leave this here but….

the reason why ash’s heart has two different color is bc half is eiji’s (blue, bc the color blue can means reliability and is a calming color) and the other ash’s (red, which means seduction, violence, danger). this reenforcing the fact that they’re soulmates uwu

but also can mean the two faces of ash — aslan callenreese (blue) and ash lynx (red).

or it was something dino choose because of the same reason.

@wilddark9 i guess dino never actually adopted ash, he was planning to but it never happened bc ash was taken by eiji and sing before dino could do it. dino was, instead, a “”“”“”“guardian”“”“”“, if you know what i mean. (correct me if i’m wrong)

if dino was the one who choose to change aslan’s name, was to make ash his own. turn aslan into ash lynx, the perfect boy/doll created by dino. dino would adopt ash to make him officially his. (sorry if it’s confusing)

Banana Fish boys and signature scent - some options

Hey, so I asked about the scents for the characters because I’m really into perfume and wanted to do a post like this based on your opinions of what the characters would smell like.

So, here’s what I think:

Eiji: You said “the sweetest scent. he smells like marshmallow and orange blossom + his hair smells like lemons”

I couldn’t quite find marshmallow and those citrus scents in a fragrance I thought would be fitting, but what I could come up with was:

Chanel Les Eaux de Chanel Paris-Deauville which is a fairly recent unisex release from Chanel in an eau de cologne style. It kinda of features all those citrus notes you mentioned (though it’s certainly more orangey than lemoney) and has some nice sweetness from jasmine. It’s also on a base of neutral, soothing woods that smells like a very typical type of fragrance that was very popular in Japan in the 90s, the kind of “Zen” fragrance (this is just the base, though, that gives it some heft and keeps it from being too sheer like most eaux de colognes; the fragrance as a whole is not woody and is much more a sweet-citrus-aromatic). All in all I’d say the key notes for me in this are (in order from most to least noticeable): sicilian orange, bergamot, lime, lemon, jasmine, hedione, assorted greens and petitgrain. If Eiji’s hair smells significantly more lemony, I would suggest he might wear Paris-Deauville on his skin, and spray a light mist of Chanel Cristalle Eau Verte on his hair, or to walk through. Not a cheap combination, though! 

Hermès Le Jardin de Monsieur Li is another citrus-sweet watery unisex fragrance with slight Zen undertones (though without any of the slight woodiness of the base of Paris-Deauville). The burst of citrus here is not due to a combination of oranges and lemons but to juicy kumquat, which is a very distinct citrus smell, and pretty great for someone looking for a distinct signature scent. Like in Paris-Deauville, the sweetness here is largerly thanks to jasmine (a flower, which, like, say, tuberose, is categorized as a “white floral,” a catergory of perfumery quite known for sweetness to say the least). I think this is probably the more Eiji-like fragrance of the two, or at least the one I can more easily imagine him wearing, even though I think Paris-Deauville is more on par with your description. The reasons why aren’t many, but I think this one skews generally more traditionally masculine than Paris-Deauville (which is a very blank unisex, in terms of traditional gender norms in perfumery), is probably easier to find (I think the Les Eaux de Chanel range is an in-house exclusive?), cheaper (you can find some good deals on this online, generally), has less of an overall “pretty veneer” than Paris-Deauville (Le Jardin de M. Li is still a masterful fragrance, but it is less “cute” than P-D, which I think Eiji would appreciate, as he is generally self-conscious of being thought of/seen as too cute), and is a more faint, discreet smell. And I mean faint. All of the fragrances in the Hermès Le Jardin series are very watery and sheer, but really, none more so than this one. If you’re in the market for a bright, tart, citrus scent, many of the fragrances in the Le Jardin series deliver (particularly as a top note), and, in fact, many of the fragrances Jean-Claude Ellena made for Hermès in general during his time as in-house perfumer there could be appealing. Ellena stepped down from his post in 2016, but many of the scents he made feature a tart, fizzy, bright, effervescent grapefruit top note, which became something of a signature for him, and is a very, very citrusy smell (though this particular grapefruit accord is not present in Jardin de M. Li). 

The marshmallow note is tricky. You can find it in fragrances, but those generally skew very feminine, young (both of those as far as traditional gender norms in perfumery go; I truly don’t feel scent has gender, but I do think we have become used to certain norms in smells as regard gender and age) and loud in register (big projection and longevity, which I don’t think is something Eiji would seek out or be comfortable with). The best ones I can recommend if you have an interest in fragrances with this note are Demeter Fragrance Marshmallow (aptly named) and Etat Libre d'Orange Divin'Enfant, though none of those fragrances register as Eiji to me, and they only fit your bill insofar as the marshmallow note goes. 

Some other ideas for Eiji, in order I find from most to least applicable:   Le Labo Fleur d'Oranger 27Louis Vuitton Sun SongHiram Green Dilettante, Hermès Concentre d'Orange Verte.

Ash: You said “rosemary” is his signature scent. So, this is what I came up with:

Chanel Platinum Égoiste, which is actually a very popular masculine aromatic (basically lots of herbs and spices) flanker of the older Chanel classic Égoïste (which I wouldn’t recommend for Ash by the way, at least not on your brief. Flankers are basically new scents that piggyback on more established names from a perfume house’s stable. Some bear a very close resemblance to the original, and with some it’s just more of a marketing ploy that suggests to the public that a classic fragrance they probably have heard about has been “updated for the now” - Cristalle Eau Verte, for instance, that I recommended for Eiji as a hair mist above, is a flanker of the original 1970s Cristalle, which, by the way, is so good, though off-topic). Anyway, Platinum Égoïste, which skews warm-spicy with slight woody undertones in the base (therefore creating a slight connection with Eiji’s scent, if Eiji were to wear Paris-Deauville - which would also mean they’re both fragrances from the same house!), and which sells like hot-cakes in France, has a very interesting and quite delicious rosemary note (it definitely is the kind of fragrance to make you swoon if you smell it on someone - specially someone you already fancy), and is done in a very kind of traditionally masculine formulation. It feels kind of tough or a bit butch on the outside, but is kept from being simplistic or overly-macho in a cartoonish way by a deceptive quiet sophistication and harmony in the notes (I recommend letting this one breathe a bit; not applying just as you’re out the door). I think Ash would really dig this one, and I think Eiji would probably dig it even more on him. To my nose, the notes that play the most significant part in the composition of this are (from most perceptible to least): geranium (which is a very interesting floral in perfumery that rarerly registers as what we generally think of as floral; it’s quite warm, spicy, a bit powdery, and clean, though paradoxically quite earthy), that gorgeous rosemary note, lavender, oakmoss, clary sage, petitgrain, cedar, sandalwood and amber. One last thing to mention about this is one is the slightly woodsy base, which while it doesn’t make me think of Cape Cod in the summer, does bring to mind notions of being outdoors in upstate New York, just as summer is turning to autumn. Overall, this has an easy sophistication that feels very Ash, and is also quite a comforting scent to smell on someone. Eiji would go bananas.

Other than this, probably the most prominent rosemary note in perfurmery comes courtesy of the very inexpensive and oft-overlooked Clarins Eau Dynamisante. This is a very fresh-spicy aromatic citrus, and interestingly, though there are a lot of really well-placed notes playing off each other here, the two key players really are rosemary and… lemon! Which in a way makes me think it is the perfect scent for Ash, because, as per your description, Ash’s signature scent is rosemary, and Eiji’s hair smells of lemons. So there you go! I think there’s something really touching and sweet about Ash’s signature fragrance carrying overtones from and sharing commonalities with Eiji’s signature scent, as if never really wanting to be away from Eiji, and subconsciously compensating for that with a fragrance that both manages to remind him of Eiji and remind Eiji of him when he smells it. Eau Dynamisante is often marketed as aromatherapy water, specially in France (and is actually often used as  a layer topper-upper - something people might spray on top of other fragrances to create a more unique scent), and is often used that way. That theory definitely holds water: just spritz it and you are likely to feel both more perky and somehow soothed. I mean, it’s crazy to think you can get that effect from a bottle, but you can, and for this reason, it’s usually something I like to recommend to people. It’s also a fairly inexpensive scent, and one that has fallen a little out of fashion with younger consumers these days. A lot of people also ignore it on account of it coming in a non-fancy plastic bottle, but I think to do so is a mistake. Truly, this is one of the more sophisticated scents out there, and you can get it for almost nothing, and smell like almost no one else. Be advised though that this is very faint, and stays very much a skin-scent - people will smell it if they are close to you, which is probably something I think Ash would prefer. I don’t see him wanting to wear something very loud, specially if he’s only just recently been getting into perfumes, and might still be worried about leaving a trace.

Now, all of the other ones I’m going to mention feature prominent rosemary notes to some degree, but in neither of them is it as much of a key player as it is in the previous two: Christian Dior Eau Sauvage (a very classic “barbershop” kind of fragrance, but quite appealing - I mean, the middle and latter developments of this are quite sexy, in a wow kind of way. Definitely more of a summery scent, with again some citrus notes to throw it back to Eiji. Strangely enough I could also see Blanca wearing this as a signature.); Giorgio Armani Acqua di Gio (which most people have probably smelled, and which is a more aquatic, more “sporty,” more stoic, less old-school classic and less sexy take on some of the ideas in Eau Sauvage); Tommy Hilfiger Endless Blue and Yves Saint Laurent M7 (by far the least prominent rosemary note here, and one that is quite butch in a big and burly way that makes me think it might be more suitable to Blanca. I think this scent is probably more representative of other people’s ideas of Ash than of Ash himself. Though released in the 2000s, it is done in a very 80s action hero kind of way that Ash was sometimes portrayed externally as). These are in order of what I think Ash would be most to least likely to wear. 

Okay! So, that’s pretty much it. Let me know if you like it, and I can make a Part 2 with Sing, Shorter and Yut-Lung. My picks for them are much more straight-forward.

Oh wow! This is amazing!!! Thank you so much for taking time writing this. I’d like to read more about it, if you wouldn’t mind, of course.

What do you think the signature scents of Ash, Eiji, Sing, Shorter and Yut-Lung would be?

ash probably doesn’t have a signature scent bc he wants to go unnoticed most of the time (that time where he’s at the hospital and that woman goes there to kill him; he tells max that she doesn’t smell so that she doesn’t leave a trail behind). but when he’s with dino he probably has some kind of scent that gives a vibe of innocence (like fresh fruit) but still smells awful bc it’s expensive.

eiji has the sweetest scent. he smells like marshmallow and orange blossom + his hair smells like lemons. eiji makes ash use his perfume when they go to live together until ash finds his signature scent: rosemary (which eiji loves and whenever he hugs ash he can’t help but sniff his neck)

sing is a vanilla guy. boring, i know but vanilla smells really good and it gives me a impression that only babie boys would use.

shorter smells like food. he doesn’t wear perfume bc he forgets to put it every morning, but the scent he brings from the restaurant pleases everyone and he just turns more into a snack + his mohawk has the scent of cotton candy bc eiji bought him a bottle ^^

yut-lung smells expensive. he’d buy the most expensive floral perfumes so that when he enters a room everyone will know that yut-lung lee has arrived. i believe he’d go with jasmine.
