Paul Smith presented two new perfumes in spring 2011 - Optimistic for Her and Optimistic for Him. The fragrances are cheerful, content and energetic, as the very names suggest. A positive attitude and good-mood perfumes are needed to bring joy to our everyday life. Despite all the disasters, the youth should cherish an optimistic vision of the future, as it was the case in the 60s. Paul Smith drew the encouragement from this very "flower power" era. Optimistic for Him is an exhilarating and fresh scent of sensual aura and classic manliness. Citrus fruits, pepper and cardamom forcefully open the composition and lead to the aromatic heart of sage and geranium. The base is warm and woody, made of cedar, vetiver and amber. Francoise Caron is the perfumer behind the both compositions. Alan Aboud intended bottles and packaging inspired by tickertape parades of the sixties. Paul Smith is a British designer best known for his menswear assortments. The designer originally hoped for a career as a specialised athlete, but when side-lined by a serious accident, he began to deliberate a career in the world of art and ideas.His interest in the fashion world began with an early job at a clothing warehouse in his native Nottingham. This position led to a management opportunity at a Nottingham boutique, and eventually to his own boutique, opened in 1970. With the help of his girlfriend at the time (and later his wife) Pauline Denyer, then a design student at the Royal College of Art, as well as a few night lessons to improve his tailoring skills, he realized his dream of creating his own fashion line. His first sportswear collection was shown in Paris in 1976.
