The Sweet Smell Of Happiness

Aside from being a very sound-sensitive person, I'm also pretty scentsitive, if you catch my drift. And since we work in an open plan office, and can't control the noises and smells around us, I've discovered a helpful little tool to make my workspace as calming and peaceful as possible. Aircraft ScentSticks come in 12…

Swallowable Perfume That Makes Your Sweat Sweet

I watched this video like five times trying to understand what's going on here.  Apparently, Swallowable Parfum is a real product that's being developed by Aussies Lucy McCrae and Sheref Mansy. The digestible, scented caplet, once absorbed into the system, is supposed to enable the skin to act as a perfume atomizer, allowing fragrance to…

10 Movies We’d Like To See In Smell-O-Vision

Don't be confused. "Spy Kids: All the Time in the World," starring Jessica Alba and Joel McHale, is not a 3D movie—it's actually 4D. Director Robert Rodriguez is bringing it to you in "Aroma-Scope."

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…

The world was just recently introduced to scented nail polish, and now one brand decided to throw a little odor onto their eyeglasses. Les Opticie…

Revlon Offers Nail Polish You Can Sniff

When I was a kid, I loved those smelly markers so much that I refused to color with them for fear they would run out of scent. Obviously, they eventually dried up, but not before I forgot about them and moved on to a different obsession. Revlon hasn't forgotten how much girls like scented product…

Eva Longoria Parker’s Fragrance Won’t Make You Sneeze

Confession time: I'm a huge Eva Longoria Parker fan. Every Sunday during "Desperate Housewives," my girl crush on Gabrielle Solis gets just a little bit bigger. But when I heard the news that she's joining the celeb-turned-designer brigade and creating her very own perfume, I was a little disheartened. Unlike some actresses who turn to…

Don’t Read Your Magazine, Smell It

Personally, I loathe perfume ads in magazines. It's impossible to tell what the scent actually smells like, because after languishing on the glossy page between a hundred other fragrances, the original essence is gone. But the magazine mono.kultur #23 decided that I'm wrong, and chose to create their latest issue entirely out of smells, a…

You’re One With His Odor

Most women have heard that body odors play a role in sexual attraction. I mean, why else would we spend money on pheromone-laced oils? Oh, maybe that was just me. Anyway, did you realize that being in love affects our perception and processing of body odors? According to a study performed in Montreal, women who…
