What’s The Mystery That Has Brad Pitt Banished To The Corner?

Have you ever wished you could hear Brad Pitt whisper sweet nothings to you, or anyone really, just once? (I would totally listen to a taping of Brad and Angelina's pillow talk, wouldn't you?)

The Fragrance Of Forgiveness

Contradictory combinations often end up making the most sense. My nose was initially confused by OLO's Violet/Leather perfume oil. Inspired by the Mark Twain quote, “Forgiveness is the fragrance that the violet sheds on the heel that has crushed it,” as the company describes the scent, "It smells like violet, it smells like leather." Indeed,…

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 and…

Feeling Irritable? Let Tata Harper Ease Your Troubled Mind

I've been known to get a touch irritable from time to time. Wait, let me rephrase that: I am a generally irritable human being. (More often than not, my irritability stems from an overriding sense of hanger, which kind of goes without saying given that I am forever hungry.) I had previously accepted "o…

“Weight Loss” Perfume Sounds Just About As Legitimate As Any “Weight Loss” Anything

There is no shortage of bizarre products and tools claiming mystical weight loss properties that will have you dropping pounds as if the basic rites of diet and exercise never existed. My personal favorite pitch thus far is that of SlimScents, which urges you to, and I quote, "harness the POWER of an EXCITING…

Kristen Stewart Bares Her High-Fashion Chops For Balenciaga’s New Fragrance

The reception of Kristen Stewart's fashion presence mimics that of her reception on-screen: people who like her really love her, warts and all, and those who don't just… don't. I tolerate her, even like her a little bit, but even so it has to be said that she's certainly no Charlize, who's a natural both…

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…

Bad Ideas: A Fragrance Reality TV Show

People, I will watch a reality TV show about pretty much anything, because I like to see strangers competing. I also like to hear people arguing and I love the ubiquitous phrase "throw me under the bus." But even that will not get me to watch a show about people competing to make a perfume.

There are beautiful smells like vanilla, lavender, jasmine, and rose, and then there is the most beautiful smell of all: the scent of a freshly purchased MacBook Pro.

Jennifer Love Hewitt Uses Vanilla Extract As Perfume

"I carry McCormick's Pure Vanilla Extract -- the baking kind -- and dab it on my neck. Men are attracted to the scent! One time, I put it on and four different guys were like, 'You smell amazing!'" — I'm so not surprised that this absurdity came from the mouth of Jennifer Love Hewitt. You know…

Whale Vomit Won’t Be In Your Perfume Much Longer

Whale vomit is not just the name of my terrible new band. It's also an ingredient in high-end perfumes that could soon be going extinct. Ambergris, or whale vomit, is expelled from the mouths of sperm* whales to keep sharp objects out of their tummies; the ambergris interacts with saltwater and eventually washes ashore looking…

Your Guide To Finding A Signature Scent

Perfume may not be for everyone, but those of us who love it really love it. I have a hyper-sensitive sense of smell — I smell things before anyone else does, and I can often identify them instantly. I can smell a new perfume offhand and rattle off the most dominant notes in it. Many…

Holiday Gift Guide: 10 Gifts For The Francophile Girl

Confession: I'm a little bit obsessed with blogs written by American girls living in Paris. Their style, their food, their apartments, their men ... ooh la la!  My favorite is Making Magique, but I also like Badaude, the group blog HipParis and Dead Fleurette (who lives i…

Iggy Pop Might Be the Next Supermodel

When you think of somebody who is sexy and cool and the picture of health, wellness and aspirational cool, you think of Iggy Pop, don't you? Wait, you don't? You don't think of a dessicated '70s punk rocker? You don't think, "I would really like to smell that guy's smell, and perhaps smell like him"?

Swallowable Perfume That Makes Your Sweat Sweet

I watched this video like five times trying to understand what's going on here.  Apparently, Swallowable Parfum is a real product that's being developed by Aussies Lucy McCrae and Sheref Mansy. The digestible, scented caplet, once absorbed into the system, is supposed to enable the skin to act as a perfume atomizer, allowing fragrance to…
