Michael 最喜歡使用的香水 到底是哪一款呢 ? (←左側文字點下去有連結)
眾說紛紜，來聽聽看他貼身的化妝師 Karen Faye 的說法 ~
以下 Michael Jackson 中譯 迈克尔
Michael and I discovered many years ago (30) we shared a favorite scent.
Those who were able to share the same space with Michael, BAL A VERSAILLES, by Jean Desprez, will remind you of him."
Jean Desprez 的 BAL A VERSAILLES 會讓你想起Michael。
Neither Obsession or Joop were a favorite.
They may have been a quick buy from his security guards because BAV was not always easy to find."
Obsession 和 Joop 都不是他的最爱。他也許會讓保鏢買一些帶在身邊，因为BAV不是那么容易找到的.
"Michael treated the bottles of this scent like gold. He was always so thrilled to have it.
Michael 對待BAV 像是對待最珍貴的物品一樣。當他拿到BAV時總是非常興奮、激動。
He loved the big fancy bottle, and he liked to carry the tiny little bottles in his pocket.
Michael Bush wasn't always so pleased when they leaked in his pocket."
香水漏在Michael口袋裡時，Michael Bush 總是不怎麼高興。
"He was wearing Black Orchid, but that was because it was easy to get.
He switched immediately, when I found him BAV. He would ask me everyday if it had arrived after I told him I had ordered it."
當我幫 Michael 找到BAV 時，他立刻就會更換掉。在我預訂了BAV之後，Michael 就会每天詢問是否已經收到BAV了。
"He was wearing BAV in the last weeks of his life." 他在生命的最後幾周内都用的是BAV.
"There are many "notes" to BAV. The ones that I love and linger on me are the earthy ones, amber and vanilla."
"it is best to get the smallest bottle of perfume. 最好是買最小瓶的那種香水。
Perfume smells different on everyone...and the eau de toilette spray bottles seem to leak and don't smell as good as the perfume."
香水在每個人身上聞起來都不同…… EDT 噴瓶 (eau de toilette spray) 容易漏，而且聞起來沒有香精那麼好聞.
"We never cared if a scent was made for a man or women.
Michael didn't think it was fair we got all the good smells. LOL"
"if you should order it....get the smallest bottle of PERFUME not the eau de toilette. The perfume smells better."
最好是買最小瓶的那種香水。而不是買eau de toilette等級噴瓶的那一種。香精 (perfume) 聞起來味道比較好。
●Michael 最喜歡 ~ 優雅的..... BAL A VERSAILLES For Women by Jean Desprez
以下先貼 Bal a Versailles 的原文介紹，中譯候補。
Bal a Versailles by Jean Desprez is a oriental fragrance for women.
Bal a Versailles was launched in 1962. ( 這是一瓶老牌的香水 )
↓↓↓ 這是 MJ 用的 BAV PERFUME ( 香精)。最大容量 0.9 OZ ( 約30ML) 。
↓↓↓ 這是 BAV 的 EDT 噴瓶 (eau de toilette spray) 淡香水包裝。最大容量 3.4 OZ ( 約 100ML) 。
Bal A Versailles Parfum is a classic women's perfume that is rich, dark and powerful.

Top notes are rosemary, orange blossom, mandarin orange, cassia, jasmine, rose, neroli, bergamot, bulgarian rose and lemon;
Middle notes are sandalwood, patchouli, lilac, orris root, vetiver, ylang-ylang and lily-of-the-valley;
Base notes are tolu balsam, amber, musk, benzoin, civet, vanilla, cedar and resins.
An understated, subtly lasting bulgarian, turkish and may rose notes are wrapped by the jasmine note to emit a medley of florals that is indulgent and nourishing to heart!
A quite but wild sex appeal is the gifted exoneration from the innocence, an innocence entry into transgression.
Bal A Versailles perfume for women, at any age? A confidence that complements the woman inside every women.
This seductive, sexy perfume is offered in bala versailles parfum, eau de toilette spray, cologne spray, parfum de toilette as well as body lotion and shower gel.
An oriental floral, TABU without the sin, Shalimar without the demanding appeal?
Maybe a French Madam in a sexy dress, showing a little of her treasurous skin, her hunger for love and intimacy apparent though she is a chocolate maker? the Chocolat? yes that woman? Juliette Binoche?
●Michael 也喜歡 ~ 香甜的Black Orchid.
但是，找到的 Black Orchid 有兩款，
Keren Faye 也沒有特別說明是哪一款，所以就將2款的資料都貼上來，請您自行判斷。
2006 ( 我有買這一款，推測 MJ 用的是這一款 )
Black Orchid was created by perfume creators of fragrance company Givaudan in 2006. It was announced as oriental chypre.
The top notes are French jasmine, black truffle, ylang-ylang, black currant and effervescent citrus,Patchouli, Sandalwood, Truffle, Dark Chocolate, Ylang-Ylang, Black Currant, Bergamot, Orchid, Fruity Notes, Incense and Vanilla.
In the floral-spicy heart, dwells the Tom Ford'sblack orchid, imaginary more than real, and the base combines woodsy notes (patchouli and sandalwood), dark chocolate, incense, amber, vetiver, vanilla and balsam.
"Black Orchid is opulent, classically dark; its fragrance is in line with the best creations of the best perfume houses.
Luxurious and sensual fragrance with rich dark trace of black orchid and spices, modern and timeless. "
It remains to be said that Black Orchid is long lasting and with wide spread aura.
"This is not about an ordinary orchid, it's about something a little more strange and rare. I wanted the blackest orchid, and those aren't easy to find."
The attention is captured by a sensuous blend of Black Truffle and Ylang mingled with fresh Bergamot and delectable Black Currant.
A dramatic signature unfolds with the custom-made Tom Ford Black Orchid blended with dark, tempting florals and rich fruit accords. The heart is deepened with the intoxicating Lotus Wood.
The decadent Noir Gourmand accord is balanced by Patchouli, Incense and Vetiver. Vanilla Tears add a fluid creaminess to warm Balsam and smooth Sandalwood.

2007 ( 我有買這一款 )
Black Orchid Voile de Fleur follows eau de perfume Black Orchid. Dark, dense and creamy original with an exquisite note of black truffle, got its new floral, lighter version.
The precursor is fatal and sexy, while Black Orchid Voile de Fleur is romantic, light and bubbly.
It is gardenia, spicy lily, black orchid, blackcurrant, black pepper, black plum, black truffle, ylang ylang, bergamot and lotus wood.
It kept black truffle and the other top notes.
The composition is reined by the white flowers: honeysuckle, gardenia and lily; but it also has its “black” side being a Tom Ford fragrance: black orchid, black plum and black pepper.
Oriental notes are soft and sensuous: warm milk, cinnamon, vanilla, patchouli and sandalwood.
It was designed by David Apel.
