Behold the scent of Kim Kardashian. With her booming reality TV career, it was only a matter of seconds before Kim decided to launch her first fragrance.

Eau de Jizz? French Perfume Company’s Got Some Wack Scents

The French have some weird ideas when it comes to personal odors. To wit, what I like to call the “French Shower,” is where you don’t bathe for three days and douse yourself with deodorant and perfume. Which is why it doesn’t surprise me that French perfume company, L’Etat Libre d’Orange, produces a range of…

Would You Like To Try … Urin?

What is this? I don’t know. I don’t know if I even want to know. At first, I thought it was an ad for a real or fake product. (You never know, these days.) A perfume. Called … Urin. Then, I thought it was a music video. Which I guess it is. By…

Crave: Crazylibellule And The Poppies Les Garçonnes Perfume (Win It!)

We’re pretty low-maintenance in the perfume department and tend not to bother with spritzing our pressure points before running out the door in the morning. But we like to smell nice, so Crazylibellule and the Poppies’ CrazySticks solid perfume sticks have found a home in our handbags. The sticks, which look like chunky ChapStick tubes,…

Abercrombie & Fitch’s Battle Over Beyoncé’s Fragrance Is Getting Fierce

Poor Beyoncé is having a rough week! First, everyone thought she was involved in some kind of conspiracy with Kanye West and Taylor Swift at the VMAs. Now Abercrombie & Fitch is suing to stop the diva from naming her forthcoming fragrance “Sasha Fierce,” for which Beyoncé filed a letter of intent with the U.S.

Has Perfume Gone Out Of Style?

The other day I came across this article about organic perfume, and I thought the following statistic was somewhat surprising: Apparently, a recent survey revealed that 74 percent of women will at some point in their lifetime have an allergic reaction to at least one fragrance. This seems like a pretty steep percentage, no? I…

The Original Supermodels Get Naked For D&G’s Anthology

To promote the release of the latest additions to D&G’s Anthology fragrance line, the designers have released a series of sexy ads featuring the original supermodels stripping off their clothes: Claudia Schiffer, Naomi Campbell, and Eva Herzigova, among others. With George Michael’s “Freedom” blaring in the background, it’s the ’90s all over again!

Etsy Find Of The Week: Sierra Solid Gold Botanical Perfume Mini

If you’ve ever made the grave mistake of plopping a small bottle of perfume in your bag and thinking you can get away with it not spilling … well, let’s just say we doubt you’ll make that mistake again. But when you’re running around from work to play and back to work again, it’s nice…

Catfight! Stella McCartney Versus Bono’s Wife

Apparently, Bono’s wife, Ali Hewson, isn’t as charitable a soul as her husband. The UK’s Daily Mail is reporting that the claws have come out—and Stella McCartney is the target! Ali and her business partner, Bryan Meehan, have a company called Nude Skincare and are feeling cranky about the name of Stella’s new fragrance, “Stella…

Woman Sends 34 Co-Workers To The Hospital By Spraying Stank Perfume

Okay, this makes no sense, but here goes. At a call bank center in Texas, 34 people were hospitalized after a woman gave herself a spritz of perfume. At first, a few people started complaining about feeling dizzy and short of breath. Pretty soon, a ton of people were feeling sick. Fire officials were called…

Want To Smell Like Amy Winehouse?

Ummm, not sure if anyone’s in the market to smell like Amy Winehouse, but if so, you may be in luck. Rumor has it that a perfumer has offered the troubled star close to a million dollars to launch a 1950s-inspired fragrance. There’s no word yet on the name, but can we take a gue…

Summer Scents You Can Spritz On The Go!

Summer can be the busiest time of year for many of us. Three months of vacation, travel, weekend excursions, surprise visits and spontaneous road trips! All those days at the beach, evening concerts and other balmy night activities sure are fun, but keep us busy and running all around! What is the best way to…

It’s One Thing To Eat Play-Doh, It’s Another To Smell Like Play-Doh

I have never really been into cologne. They all more or less smell the same to me, i.e. “ugh, way too much cologne.” That being said, my blase reaction to cologne is probably partially due to the fact that I have yet to run into a dude wearing a cologne by Demeter. Calling Demeter’s scent…

Swiss Army Wants You To Smell Like Efficiency

Victorinox, purveyors of Swiss Army knives and all manners of utilitarian items, is no longer content with being confined to outdoorsy devices. They’ve moved into the scent market with the recent release of Swiss Unlimited, an eau de toilette that smells like “Swiss essence with notes of wooded silver fir, alpine herbs, and absinthe.” So…

New Opera Stinks, Literally

Ever wonder what music smells like? Just ask Christophe Laudamiel and Stewart Matthew, perfumers who are at work creating a “scent opera” called “Green Aria.” Except in this case, there are no singers or actors; fragrances serve as the characters. As the listener takes in the original score composed by Valgeir Sigurdsson and Nico Muhly,…

Crave: Lily Pulitzer “Beachy” Fragrance

You don’t need to get sandy to experience the beach. Lilly Pulitzer’s new Beachy fragrance smells as yummy the real thing. If you’re a fan of watermelon, citrus, and jasmine blossoms, you’re bound to become a fan. The delicious scent will set you back $48, but the delicate blue bottle it comes in (and adorable…

Crave: Bath & Body Works Japanese Cherry Blossom Eau De Toilette

We discovered the Japanese Cherry Blossom shower gel back in December and were instantly hooked. So we’re totally psyched that Bath & Body Works now offers the scent, a combo of Asian pear, mimosa petals, Kyoto rose and Himalayan cedarwood, in an eau de toilette. The scent lingers on the skin, but isn’t overpowering. At…

Style Buzz: “Top Model” Returns Tonight!

Tyra Banks is making a “comeback” of sorts: “America’s Next Top Model,” cycle 12, is back on the air tonight. I wonder what over-the-top schtick Ty-Ty will go for this year? [The CW]
He’s not MY choice for sexiest royal, but whatever…”Esquire” voted Prince Charles, second in line to England’s throne, as one of their…
