Christina Aguilera Named Her New Perfume “Royal Desire”

There are a lot of things I think about when I think about Christina Aguilera: power ballads, blonde hair extensions, synchronized choreography -- did I mention extensions? But I can honestly say I've never once put Aguilera's name in the same sentence with "royal." And yet, Ms. "What A Girl Wants" has named her new…

Land Yourself A Big Strapping Man With This Perfume

Leave it to a Harvard guy to figure out a way to market male attraction to women. That's exactly what Ivy League grad Shaan Hathiramani and his team of "researchers" did by creating a new fragrance called Eau Flirt, which they claim will do all the work of attracting men. "We've also conducted kind of…

Jimmy Fallon Is The Future Of Justin Bieber

I'm pretty sure Jimmy Fallon collaborates with Justin Bieber just so he can wear the fake Bieber hair. Watch his Present Bieber meets Future Bieber perfume ad to see the pair at work.

Quickies: Justin Bieber’s New Perfume Bottle Is Vaginal & Lenny Kravitz Cast In “The Hunger Games”

Oh my word. The top of Justin Bieber's perfume bottle for Someday, his new women's fragrance, looks like the lips of a vagina. Or a Georgia O'Keefe painting. [OK! Magazine] Hollywood is remaking "Romeo & Juliet" again? At least we have hot Ed Westwick to look at this time — he's playing cousi…

A Rose By Any Other Name Would Not Smell As Sweet

One whiff of Andy Tauer's scent creation, Incense Rose, and I knew I never wanted to smell like anything else. This perfume is a contradiction, contrasting the darkly seductive and masculine scent of incense with the feminine sensuality of rose. It contains notes of clementine, bergamot, Bulgarian rose, orris, cedarwood, incense, myrrh, patchouli, and amber.

Guy Makes Perfume Out Of His Own Poop

See this guy? Isn't his expression just the definition of a s**t-eating grin? That's because he's invented a perfume. Made from human poop. His name is Jammie, and he was able to create a perfume distilled from his own fecal matter. He's selling the perfume, dubbed Surplus, for around $75 dollars a pop.

Kirsten Dunst Poses Nakey With A Lion

Kirsten Dunst's new ad for Bulgari's Mon Jasmir Noir perfume looks kinda like an outtake from "Marie Antoinette." Only nuder and with a lion. [Sassy Bella]…

Lady Gaga Clarifies That Her Perfume Actually Smells Like An Expensive Hooker

"No, no, no. Actually the perfume smells like an expensive hooker ... I wanted to extract sort of the feeling and sense of blood and semen from molecular structures, so that's where [the rumors] came from and that is in the perfume but it doesn't smell like that."-- Lady Gaga clarifies that despite report…

Natalie Portman’s Miss Dior Cherie Commercial Is Super-Cheesy

When I think of "Natalie Portman" or "Dior," I don't think "epic cheesiness." But the creative director for Nat's Miss Dior Cherie perfume commercial had a different thought process. Yikes, this is a little embarrassing. [YouTube]…

Rihanna’s Arty Video For Reb’l Fleur Perfume Is Here

Rihanna has a fragrance and I have so many questions. Why does Reb'l Fleur have no "e" in it? What does Reb'l Fleur even mean? How much money did Rihanna spend on this bizarre video that sorta, kinda advertises her new perfume but mostly just showcases how pretty she is? And is it…

Lady Gaga Wants You To Smell Like Period Sex

There's going to come a point in this sabbatical of mine where I am really going to miss having sex. And when that time comes, how to fight the urge? Perhaps by titillating the senses that are stimulated by having sex, I can give myself a little "taste," so to speak, without participating i…

Natalie Portman Dons A Headband — And Nothing Else — For Miss Dior

Looking very much like Blair Waldorf (but in a topless pose Blair would never be caught dead in), Natalie Portman models for Christian Dior's Miss Dior Cherie perfume. I never thought I'd see the day when Natalie Portman posed nude, sort of. [Celebuzz]…

Rihanna’s Reb’l Fleur Fragrance Ad

Even though Rihanna looks beautiful, the ad for her much-anticipated Reb'l Fleur fragrance doesn't exactly say fragrance to me. I'm also surprised she wore that rebellious red hair, but I guess that was the point.

Taylor Momsen For John Galliano’s Parlez Moi D’Amour Fragrance

Dare I say Taylor Momsen actually looks sexy in this ad for John Galliano's Parlez Moi D'Amour fragrance? She has on her usual stockings and short dress, but that Galliano flavor just makes her more sultry and believable. [Design Scene]…

Our Fall Scent Selections

I was a child when I first learned that fragrance holds a very important role in the life of a woman. My aunt, a designer at Tiffany and Co., always wore Givenchy’s Amarige, and to this day every time I have a whiff of it she is immediately next to me. The scent that one…

This Is What You Get When You Combine Perfume And The Sartorialist

How very dapper: Penhaligon's new fragrance recalls tailored men's fashion. We hope they're sending bow tie champion Mr. Brad Goreski a bottle or two. [Lovely Package]…

Lanvin’s “Marry Me!” Fragrance Skips Subtle Marketing Tactics

You can thank the "Mad Men" episode about Pond's Cold Cream for reminding us of an era when advertising appealed directly to a stereotyped female psyche. As Freddy says about Pond's: "If young girls started using it, maybe they'd find a husband and they wouldn't be so angry ... if you use Pond's you'll…

Genius: The Perfumed Court Offers Expensive Scents In Little Doses

One of life's little pleasures: spritzing yourself with your perfume, the one that you've really adopted as your smell. The problem with this is that perfumes are generally expensive (unless you somehow enjoy dousing yourself in Eau de Britney each day). After wearing the relatively affordable Ralph by Ralph Lauren scent since my teenage…
