This was the question posed to me by adidas fragrances.
Surely I was already born wasn’t I? I mean, I’m writing this post.
Turns out what they wanted to find out, is when do I feel as though I have been born again. When is my creative rebirth? What is it that leaves me feeling as though I am a new person? As though I have been born original. This was the inspiration behind the new adidas born original fragrance duo, an explosive mix of contrasting notes. For her it’s a cocktail of bright citrus and exotic notes while for him it’s a juxtapositioning of oriental and amber citrus with spicy black pepper and orange oil. It doesn’t stop at the fragrance either, even the bottle is a mix of fluid organic shapes and rough industrial elements.
So when was I born? At first I thought it’s when I dress up. You know, when everything feels as though it fits perfectly and all the patterns and details are in place? But then I realised I dress up so often, that it no longer really counts, does it? There is however, one time when I dress up (and it’s not often, in fact it’s months apart) but when the occasion calls for it and I get to where a tux. Thats right folks, black tie.
