Beyonce’s New “Feminist” Fragrance Is Inspired By A Maya Angelou Poem, Smells Like Gold Symphony Orchid And Cashmere

Beyonce Naked, In a Hammock

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 Angelou poem. Perhaps that poem is “Still I Rise,” which includes the line:

Does my sexiness upset you?

Does it come as a surprise

That I dance like I’ve got diamonds

At the meeting of my thighs?

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

Lustworthy Plus Size Perfume Ad

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 series of mock perfume ads for a made-up fragrance called “Lustworthy.” The images have all the trappings of traditional fragrance ads — sexy models lusting for each other, risque positions, an intense physical connection, skimpy lingerie in a snowy forest, etc —  but there’s one major difference: the female model in these ads isn’t tall and skinny, she’s plus-size.

The photos will make you do a double-take and might even make you uncomfortable, but that’s the whole point.  Keep reading »

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 mix? Just in case the idea of smelling like pumpkin pie in public freaks you out, the scent is also available in shower gel form, which is a bit more subtle and perfect for lathering up on Thanksgiving morning. Whip cream-scented lotion optional. [Refinery 29]

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 and getting compliments from drag queens about how good she smells. That really happened! I was so impressed that not only had Ami gotten a compliment from a famous drag queen, but that she even had a signature scent to begin with. I’ve always wanted a signature scent, but when it comes to picking perfumes and applying them every day, I’m a boring-smelling failure. I always come out of the department store perfume section empty-handed, with a pounding headache, smelling like I got attacked by a garden. I’m ready to tackle this perfume thing, but with guidance this time. To continue our grand tradition of giving each other advice about everything from moving across the country to how to dice an onion, I asked perfume master Ami for some tips about how to get started finding my signature scent…

Roar?

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 walked in … I feel like I’m falling, finally, into that woman Freddie painted.” Several weeks later, the ad teaser for Katy’s newest beauty offering is out — and, you know, we kind of see where she’s coming from with this whole “queen” thing. But Queen, on the other hand? Not so much. [The Cut]

nicki minaj new fragrance

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 get over the hideous bottle, which resembles Zombie Nicki Minaj. Why would you do that, Nicki?
