Axe Body Spray, the company that’s marketed itself as lady catnip for men, has discovered a brand new demographic opportunity: the ladiez. Now women will be afforded the same opportunity to smell like total creeps when Axe launches its women’s collection of body sprays. The first “Eau de Lady D-bag”? It’s titled “Anarchy,” presumably to catch some of the post-Occupy goodwill and revolutionary spirit. Either that, or the execs at Axe know a really hot girl named Ann.

If there’s one thing that compels me to invest in a new perfume, it’s the change of seasons. While my favorite Lancôme Miracle, a unique peppery floral, suits me perfectly throughout most months of the year, I find myself craving a warmer, woodsier scent when the temperature drops. I’ve rounded up a few perfect winter fragrances, both old favorites and new releases — they can’t keep you toasty, but they can make you smell warm. Keep reading »
If you thought the all-star season of “America’s Next Top Model” was indication that the model competition show had jumped the shark, think again. Now Tyra Banks is releasing an ANTM fragrance called Dreams Come True … Uh, that’s not exactly what happens to the winning model on ANTM, but we’ll let Tyra have her delusions. You know, there’s a whole generation of ANTM viewers still willing to give Tyra their ratings and money, and they only have to wait until January when the fragrance will be released. We’re not exactly sure what Dreams Come True will smell like, but Racked has some ideas. And let us know if the idea of an ANTM fragrance entices you. [Racked]
Conceptual artist Cherry Tree has a scent of mystery about her. And the smell of urine. Her urine. And it’s intentional.
For the last five years, Tree, who splits time between Missouri and Spain, has been turning her own urine into perfume.
“I am very much into recycling,” Tree, born Charity Blansit, told AOL Weird News. “And urine is something I’ve thought needs to be recycled, since it’s something that gets eliminated.” Read more… Keep reading »
“Let’s be real, the way a girl smells is very important to a guy! I have such a deep connection with my fans, so creating a fragrance that I personally love is another way I can bring them closer to my world.”
– Justin Bieber explains why he created Someday, a fragrance for women, er, girls. If the music at a Justin Bieber concert doesn’t give you a headache, the smell of every single attendee wearing Someday sure will! [ONTD] Keep reading »
No, this is not how professional dancer Benjamin Millepied, aka Natalie Portman‘s fiance and baby daddy, walks down the street every day. Just once in a while. Like last Friday, when he was photographed in New York, shooting an ad for Yves Saint Laurent newest men’s fragrance. Which makes sense, since his lady is the face of Dior’s Miss Dior Cherie. They must be the best smelling couple on the planet. [People] Keep reading »
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.
Rihanna has a fragrance and I have so many questions. Why does Reb’l Fleur have no “e” in it? What does Reb’l Fleur even mean? How much money did Rihanna spend on this bizarre video that sorta, kinda advertises her new perfume but mostly just showcases how pretty she is? And is it really “fruit-salad scented”? Really?

All you boys and girls who are on the hunt for a new fragrance—your quest ends here. Khloe Kardashian and her hubby Lamar Odom have created a unisex perfume, called Unbreakable, based on the scent of their love. No, it doesn’t smell like his NBA quality sweat or her nail glue and hairspray fumes. It smells like unisex chocolate. Duh! “It took a long time to create what we both wanted and would wear and love, and we found the perfect one,” says Khloe. “Someone just asked me, ‘What are you wearing?’ and I love that I can say, ‘It’s our fragrance!’” Valentine’s Day gifts, solved.

A commercial for Yves Saint Laurent’s Belle D’Opium fragrance has been banned in the U.K. because the ad supposedly shows models “simulating drug use.” The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) “therefore concluded it was irresponsible and unacceptable for broadcast.” In the ad (above), the character of “Belle” runs her finger down her arm and the ASA concluded that action “could be seen to simulate the injection of opiates into the body.” The ASA also felt that Belle’s movements later in the ad, including one in which “her body [seizes] upwards while lying on the floor,” could be viewed as “simulating the effect of drugs on the body.” Personally, I just think she’s dancing like nobody’s watching. Kind of hilariously, the Daily Mail U.K. notes that the ad has already been viewed by 44 million people and that a whopping 96 percent of French women (specifically!) didn’t think there was anything inappropriate about the commercial. So what do you think? Do you side with the crusty old ASA or those hip French ladies? [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
