Demeter Is Now Making A Perfume That Smells Like A Baby’s Head

Demeter Fragrance is known for making one note scents that smell like pretty much anything you can think of, from pizza to dirt to a gin and tonic. I have an enduring love for their Honeysuckle fragrance, and have spent more time than I'd like to admit in front of their displays at my local…

Beyonce's not done, y'all. In addition to blessing the world with the best Christmas gift ever just a week ago, Bey -- or should we call her Yonce now? -- is releasing her third fragrance, called Rise, inspired by her favorite Maya…

What If A Perfume Ad Featured A Woman Who Was Bold, Sexy, Desirable, And Also Fat?

Jes Baker of The Militant Baker has done some really powerful, creative projects in the name of body positivity and fat acceptance, but her most recent undertaking might be her best one yet. Jes teamed up with photographer Liora K to produce a…

Life Dream Status: Pumpkin Pie Perfume

I've been on the hunt for my signature scent ever since Ami became my perfume mentor, and I think I just found it: Pumpkin Pie Cologne from Demeter Fragrance Library. I know I like fragrances with vanilla undertones -- why not toss some cinnamon, nutmeg, and pumpkin puree into the…

Perfume Q&A: How Do I Find My Signature Scent?

Something you may not know about Ami is that she is a perfume junkie. When she's rich enough to have a vanity career someday (a girl can dream!) she will move to Paris and become a Nose -- a certified, smell expert. Until then, she is content spending all her disposable income on fancy perfume…

Check Out The Ad Teaser For Katy Perry’s New (Queen-Inspired?) Fragrance

Straight from the kitty's mouth: Katy Perry told WWD back in July that her third fragrance, Killer Queen, drew inspiration from none other than Queen frontman Freddie Mercury. "[He] painted the lyrics of this woman who I wanted to be. She seemed very powerful, and she captivated a room when she…

This Is The Terrifying New Fragrance From Nicki Minaj

What does Nicki Minaj smell like? Pizza, coconuts, daisies and sunshine, we bet. Whatever the smell, Nicki's gone and unleashed a new perfume on us. She announced the new fragrance over Twitter; it's called Minajesty, and it supposedly "speaks directly to the sumptuous, confident side of Nicki’s ever-changing and dynamic personality." But whatever, we can't…

A Fragrance That’s Floral & Fancy Free!

As someone who suffers from migraine headaches, I have to be careful about what fragrances I choose to wear. To sweet and cloying, and a headache can pop up in minutes. Too floral, and my head starts pounding. For a long time, I've been searching for a fragrance that feels more grown up, but doesn't…

Wes Anderson And Roman Coppola Make Short Films For Prada

Wes Anderson and Roman Coppola are something of a movie-making dream team, and they've taken their quirky, manic-pixie-dream-film aesthetic and lent it to Prada for a series of advertorial vignettes. Their collaborative campaign for the fashion house's latest perfume, Candy L'eau, stars French actress Lea Seydoux as the titular Candy, a baby bangs-wearing ingenue trapped…

The Scent Of Despair

I wouldn't mind smelling like I sat around in a Paris cafe chain smoking, drinking coffee and wine and writing the most important novel of the century. If only the most brilliant writers knew their work was great. Not a chance. The best writers spend most of the day wallowing in self-loathing. Dead Writers Perfume…

Is This Keira Knightley Chanel Ad Unfit For The Eyes Of Children?

The British Advertising Standards Authority strikes again! The ad censorship watchdog, responsible for putting the kibosh on everything from scummy American Apparel ads to a photo of an underage Dakota Fanning holding a perfume bottle between her legs for Marc Jacobs, is cracking down on another campaign. Next up on the chopping block…

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…

Diptyque’s Solid Perfumes Are Divine

I'll be entirely honest: I treasure the finer things in life, and by "finer things" I mean "expensive stuff and anything with a French name." This is precisely how I became infatuated with Paris-based candle-crafter and parfumeur (ooh, I just love that word) Diptyque. A cult favorite of fashion people and impossibly chic trust fund…

Kelly Osbourne’s Friends Smell Her Before They See Her

"It's called L'Artisan Parfumeur's Mûre et Musc and I've been wearing it since I was 12. My dad wouldn't let me wear makeup. 'No daughter of mine is going to look like a whore!' So my mom compromised with me by letting me get perfume. I got it because the bottle was purple and I…

Please Give Me A Bottle Of Eau De Pizza Hut, Thanks

Dear Universe, if you'd be ever so kind as to procure me a bottle of Pizza Hut perfume, I'd be eternally grateful. According to the press release, the Eau De Pizza Hut is "a brand new fragrance from Pizza Hut Canada boasting top notes of freshly baked, hand-tossed dough." Ugh, could you even imagine how…

Must Haves: 8 Toke-ns For The Pothead In All Of Us

Hey stoners, guess what? That's right: in Washington and Colorado, marijuana is now completely legal for recreational use by legal adults (that means anyone over the age of 21). You jealous? I am, but I guess I'll get over it. While we wait for the other 48 states to come around (or is it 49?

Rooty Tooty Fresh And Fruity Perfume

I just ran out of the perfume I'd grown attached to -- but thankfully this Fresh Hesperides Grapefruit Eau de Parfum arrived in my postal box. Combining top notes of mandarin, Italian lemon, and grapefruit, this perfume is the scented equivalent of a fresh glass of juice. Which, I know, kind of sounds revolting (a…
