Adam Levine Launches Eponymous Fragrance Line, Boldly Compares Himself To Tom Ford

Say what you will about him, but Adam Levine has always given me a crippling case of the skeeves. I know I am in the minority because even my mom thinks he’s sexy, and her idea of a sex symbol is, like, Gregory Peck. Also, he totally serial-dates Victoria’s Secret models with a rapidity rivaled…

Beauty Test Drive: Celine Dion’s Perfume Collection

Last Tuesday at around 11AM I heard a knock on the door. I wasn’t expecting a package and the last time I opened the door for a random visitor it was two religious guys wearing shiny white pants who told me they had definitive proof that God was a fish, so I ignored it…

10 Perfume Bottles That Look Like Sex Toys

The other day, I clicked on a perfume ad and left the room for a second. When I came back I thought for sure my computer had been redirected to a sex toy site, because wow, the majority of women’s fragrances these days seem to be packaged in a vibrator or hollowed-out dildo. To prove…

A Michael Jackson Perfume And Cologne?!?! No!

I have never had a desire to smell like Britney Spears, Paris Hilton, or Mariah Carey—so I know I am not the target market for celebrity perfumes. Celebrity colognes make even less sense to me—I just can’t imagine wanting to smell like George Clooney, Tim McGraw, or Antonio Banderas. Apparently, I don’t know what I…

Bring The Tropics Home

The other day, I was at a friend’s house and excused myself to use her loo. A minute later — I’m a quick pee-er — I emerged with one question: “What is that smell?” I meant it in a positive way — I was completely intoxicated by the vaguely fruity odor of her lavatory. I…

Beauty Test Drive: Kate Walsh’s Boyfriend Fragrance

I know what you’re thinking: “Does the world really need another celebrity fragrance?” I have to admit I thought the same thing when I was invited to the launch of Kate Walsh’s Boyfriend fragrance at Sephora. But instead of paying attention to the celebrity behind the new scent and the packaging that looks way too…

Hey, Did You Know Mariah Carey Is Pregnant?

Rich over at fourfour created this awesome cut of Mariah Carey on the Home Shopping Network yesterday talking about being pregnant about 4,000 times, about perfume about 3,567 times, and generally reclining like the Queen of Sheba on a sofa as co-hosts get treated like the lowly subjects they are about 789 times.

Does The Bottle For Katy Perry’s Perfume Make You Want To Purr?

So unless you’ve been under a rock or don’t understand the evolution of celebrity branding, the fact that Katy Perry is releasing a fragrance shouldn’t be news to you. (We even showed you the extremely sexy and playful ad here.) But now, we’re getting a glimpse at the fragrance bottle, and we have to say…

Beauty Test Drive: Kate Spade’s New Eau De Parfum, Twirl

Watermelon wouldn’t be our first choice for an eau de parfum. Who shops for fragrances thinking, “Hey, I’d really like to smell like a watermelon today?” To be more accurate, the official scents in Kate Spade’s new eau de parfum Twirl are “pink watermelon, blackberry and red current with additional notes of orange blossom, star…

Beauty Test Drive: Calvin Klein Beauty Fragrance

It’s not every day I come across a fragrance that can be worn year round, but Calvin Klein Beauty is appropriate for summer, fall, and whenever feels right. With notes of jasmine and neo-lily (a new interpretation of a lily), Beauty has a floral essence we’ve all come to identify with summer. But the to…

Quotable: Marc Jacobs Explains Why He Was Naked For Bang Ad

“I’m not Tom Ford in terms of the grooming and the knowledge of clothes and the precision and perfection of getting dressed. There’s nothing I can wear in this ad that isn’t going to look ridiculous. At one point, I tried jeans and a shirt, and it didn’t work. So then Juergen said, ‘Take off…

Thierry Mugler’s New Fragrance, Womanity, Is Awesome

There are a lot of great perks that come with working for The Frisky. The hot tub cubicle. The male courtesans. The shirtless video messages from the Old Spice guy. Previously, I’ve written here about Thierry Mugler fragrances, of which I am a fan, so when a Mugler rep emailed me, asking, “Ca…

Ashley Greene Isn’t The Only Big Thing Happening At Avon

Your Avon Mark catalog will no longer arrive with fresh-faced Lauren Conrad on the cover because “Twilight” star Ashley Greene is the new ambassador of the Mark brand. If you’re not familiar with Mark, then maybe Ashley will convince you to try the affordable cosmetics when her TV and prints ads launch this fall. But…

Paris Hilton Releases New Fragrance. Will You Buy It?

Paris Hilton has unleashed a new fragrance upon the world: Tease. Did you know this is her tenth fragrance? I am not lying when I tell you that I had not even registered that she had any eau de Paris on the shelves. I must have skipped that aisle at Wal-Mart. (For the record, that…

How Many Chemicals Are In Your Perfume?

My perfume routine varies. Some days I’ll spritz a fragrance in the air and walk through it for a slight essence, and on other days I’ll dab my wrists for a longer-lasting scent. Thanks to a new report from the Environmental Working Group, however, I’m going to have to double think my perfume routine –…
