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. Now, thanks to a collaboration between a group of artists and the scent scientists at Air Aroma, that intoxicating Apple product smell has been recreated and bottled as a perfume. Here’s the description from Air Aroma’s blog: “The scent encompasses the smell of the plastic wrap covering the box, printed ink on the cardboard, the smell of paper and plastic components within the box and of course the aluminum laptop.” The perfume will be showcased as part of an art exhibit in Melbourne, Australia, but if it ever becomes available for purchase, I’m sure there would be a line around the block to buy it. Plus, they could come out with a slightly different scent every year that rendered the previous scent irrelevant. Genius! [Gothamist]

“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 how it goes: if men like it, it must be good! [Us Weekly]

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 like rocks. It is then sold for around $10K, making it a factor in whale hunting; fragrance companies use ambergris in their perfumes to prevent scents from dissipating. Keep reading »

Unattainable Womanhood, As Explained By This Old Bill Blass Perfume Ad

Sexist Ads
Not all advertising campaigns are sexist and offensive. Read More »

She’s supposed to “get gorgeously dressed in 15 minutes flat,” but not worry about her hair getting wet in the rain. She’s supposed to love a good laugh, but can’t gossip. She’s a big eater, but doesn’t drink white wine. And on, and on, and on. According to this old ad for Bill Blass Perfume, finding your soul mate is just like ordering up a burger … only more obnoxiously specific. [The Hairpin]

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 of my childhood memories are steeped in scent, so much so that whenever I catch a whiff of the Yves Saint Laurent Paris perfume my mother wore when I was small, I’m suddenly five years old again.

Apparently, Walsh plans to add a new fragrance to the line every Valentine’s Day.

The original Boyfriend fragrance was released last year and, as Walsh now explains, was inspired by a split with a significant other. Keep reading »
