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

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.

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!

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 scents… More »

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.

Sofia Coppola Makes Me Want To Soak Myself In Dior Perfume

Sofia Coppola’s a busy lady these days. Not only has she been designing bags for Louis Vuitton, but Coppola also directed a commercial for Dior’s Miss Dior Cherie fragrance. It has a jealousy inducing I’m-fabulous-and-live-in-Paris-in-the-’60s vibe to it. If this is the kind of life I’d live if I wore the perfume, I’ll… More »
