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… READ MORE »

Supermodel and Guess girl Claudia Schiffer revealed that Hermès wished to name a signature handbag after her when she was 22… and she turned them down at her agent’s insistence. Regrets, I’ve had a few… [Telegraph]

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… READ MORE »

“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… READ MORE »

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… READ MORE »

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? READ MORE »

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… READ MORE »

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?) Well, you’re in luck, because Chanel is making your dreams come true (kind of like they always do, then cruelly price… READ MORE »

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,… READ MORE »

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… READ MORE »

If you can successfully collaborate on a… READ MORE »

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 “on edge” READ MORE »

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 new… READ MORE »

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… READ MORE »

Are you a serious bookworm? Do you find the scent of the printed page borderline orgasmic? Are regular perfumes not quite paper-y enough for you?

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… READ MORE »

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. READ MORE »
