One whiff of Andy Tauer’s scent creation, Incense Rose, and I knew I never wanted to smell like anything else. This perfume is a contradiction, contrasting the darkly seductive and masculine scent of incense with the feminine sensuality of rose. It contains notes of clementine, bergamot, Bulgarian rose, orris, cedarwood, incense, myrrh, patchouli, and amber. Just a tiny spritz will send you out into the world a sexy and mysterious creature.
Usually if any woman besides the bride dared to show up at a wedding wearing white (or cream or ivory or eggshell or ecru), she’d be kicked out before the ceremony began. But no one seemed to mind that Pippa Middleton, younger sister of the bride and her maid of honor, escorted Kate to her wedding to Prince William dressed in an ivory dress that could very well have been a bridal gown. Obviously, not an ounce of proper etiquette could have been overlooked at the royal wedding and the dress was designed specifically for Pippa by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen (who also did Kate’s wedding gown), so I assume wearing white(ish) passed muster. But I wonder if anyone expected some to say she managed to outshine her sister? “It was supposed to be Kate Middleton’s big day — but her younger sister Pippa made heads turn,” said The New York Daily News. Will “Pippa-ed” become the new way to say “stole the spotlight”? One person who seemed to notice how lovely Pippa looked was Prince Hot Ginge, I mean Harry, who stole a couple glances during the ceremony. But alas, he’s out of luck — Pippa has been dating some former cricket star for some time. [NY Daily News] Keep reading »
