Behind The Lyrics

This song is about a suburban girl who’s tired of the same routine. She loves her simple life but feels there’s something more she wants out of life. She decides to move to the city and try something new. Her first weekend out she locks eyes with a man and it seems to be love at first sight. Her naturally sarcastic and hard to get personality is contagious and inviting. He loves what he can't have so this made her love feel so vibrant and addictive like a drug. Their honeymoon love flourishes but she still plays hard to get which makes him want to be with her even more. She feels more vibrant than golden hour and they both decide to just go with it and live life to the fullest.

This song is not influenced by this movie at all but I thought this movie paired well with the meaning behind "Perfume". If you haven't seen this movie, give it a watch and let me know if you see the resemblance lol.

Lyrics

She dress in all black

And got two moods

She wear it like a perfume

She head for the city

And got no clue 

Her boys just old news

 

She’s got that shine on her face yea

Yea so sweet just like a perfume

She’s so high I need a taste yea

She’ll be the light to your silver spoon

 

We’ll make some stories we can never tell

Breaking hearts yea you put them right through hell

Close your eyes

And we can pretend

Yea she broke your heart again

 

Yea you drive me insane

When you move like you do oh

I like the way

You're so sarcastic when you say 

Yea we’re cool but I’m not yours

 

You speak like a dance

I’m tongue tied over you

She floats just like a perfume

She plays hard to get

I’m so into you

Yea babe you look so cool

 

She’s got that soft touch embrace 

Got that glow yea like LA

Bring the color out in malibu

Yea you know just how we do

 

We’ll make some stories we can never tell

Breaking hearts yea you put them right through hell

Close your eyes

And we can pretend

Yea she broke your heart again

 

Yea you drive me insane

When you move like you do oh

I like the way

You're so sarcastic when you say 

Yea we’re cool but I’m not yours

Here are a few other variations I had for the album art. "Perfume" is used to describe the sweet and niceness of the girl in the story, so that is where the name came from. And that then inspired the album art. I wanted to get a nice photo of a perfume bottle with a vibrant sunset in the back to emphasize the girls presence.

These are the first demos of Perfume. Hope you enjoy!
