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 make my head want to explode. Jour d’Hermès–yup, the same guys that make those scarves–if light, floral and mature, without being stuffy. From noted perfumier Jean-Claude Ellena, Jour d’Hermès is leafy and fresh, floral and fragrant. Explains perfume blogger Now Smell This, “the base is a pale woody musk finished in warm, sunny tones, slightly earthy, slightly vegetal.” Translation: It’s a pleasing, softly floral fragrance that won’t overwhelm you or your delicate nose.

“Everything” Perfume Is The Perfect Scent For Indecisive People

Have you tried shopping for perfume lately? The selection is so extensive it can be a daunting process. To make things easier for you, Dutch artists Lenert and Sander have created a new scent called “Everything,” which is a mixture of every single one of the 1,400 perfumes that were released last year. Apparently it smells exactly as you’d expect: “We think Everything smells of your average fragrance department store — that wall of smell that hits you when you enter it,” the duo explains. Well, that sounds like my worst nightmare. “Everything” is making the rounds at perfumeries and art shows, and isn’t available for purchase, but perhaps you could whip up your own version by boiling down a bunch of magazine perfume samples into a pulpy, musky soup?

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 in a love triangle that she doesn’t seem to be too mad about — in fact, it’s quite saccharine. Get it? The campaign kicks off with three 12-second clips, with three longer teasers to follow and then a final full-length spot. Oh, and they’re all in French with English subtitles. Because of course. Watch the first minute-long teaser above, and the three clips after the jump! [Fashionista, Popsop] Keep reading »

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 evokes literary genius with a blend tobacco, vetiver, black tea, musk and vanilla. Now people will smell your despair the moment you enter a room. But you wouldn’t have it any other way. [Etsy]

"Lock the door..."

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 is a Chanel Coco Mademoiselle fragrance commercial starring Keira Knightley. Keep reading »
