What does Freedom smell like? Old Spice Deodorant. What does Old Spice Deodorant smell like? Freedom. Really. It says so right on the bottle. They’ve isolated the scent of independence. That should transcend gender. And that’s why I’m wearing it … More
Hallowed French perfumier Jean-Paul Guerlain made an extremely terrible gaffe Friday on French television. While describing the process of designing an early fragrance, he said the following: “And for once I started working like a [N-----]. I don’t know if [N-----] ever worked that hard,” he said.
Wow. Okay, so, let’s set that aside for a moment. Guerlain, who was the last “master” at the family-owned perfumery before LVMH’s acquisition of the company in 1994, is famous for creating (among others)Vétiver and Habit Rouge (he is now also famous for being a racist). More
In case Beverly Hills hasn’t gotten enough hype in the past 20 years, here’s another way to celebrate the infamous 90210 zip code: the city of Beverly Hills, in conjunction with JT Brands of Long Beach, will be releasing a “souvenir fragrance line” guaranteed to make you smell like a 90201 gal. Pam Danziger, a marketing expert, said, “When I think of Beverly Hills, I think of ground zero in conspicuous consumption lifestyle. Every city has souvenirs, so for Beverly Hills, why not some perfume? It makes sense.” Though not connected, this is reminiscent of Bond No. 9, which designs fragrances inspired by different New York City neighborhoods. More
I went to high school in a fairly small community where there weren’t a lot of stores. Every girl in my high school selected ‘her’ Bath and Body Works fragrance and wore it constantly in body spray, lotion, and bath gel form. The locker room smelled like a basket of wax fruit every day after gym class. But I just couldn’t settle on which scent was going to be mine: I didn’t want to smell like a country apple or a sun-ripened raspberry, as much as I would have enjoyed eating either of those things. Ultimately, it was a men’s scent that drew me in: cool spring, which smelled like musk and rainwater. The woman at the counter asked me if I was getting a gift for my boyfriend, and, feeling ashamed, I said yes. But I loved every drop of the scent and wore it until I couldn’t squeeze any more out of the bottle. Since then, it has been men’s – and the occasional unisex – fragrances all the way. Recently, I got my hands on a sample of Calvin Klein’s Eternity Aqua for Men, and I’ve sported it every day since then. More
Coffee breath is gross. I don’t know why, but the scent of coffee from a mug or a freshly brewed pot is way different than when it comes from someone’s dirty, germy mouth. But apparently I’m the odd girl out, because according to a study conducted by AXE and the Smell & Taste Treatment and Research Foundation (such a place does exist), the women of New York City are most allured to the aroma of coffee no matter where it is coming from. Soon, men all across Manhattan will be drinking as much coffee as the Swedes just to attract more girls’ attentions (I say that because I’m tremendously addicted to Steig Larsson’s Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series and am amazed by how much caffeine Swedish people drink on a daily basis in the book. Also, if you haven’t read any of the books, do it … now). More
When Axe made its initial push, I was in high school. I have this vivid memory, particularly through olfaction, of my friends flooding the locker room with the body spray after soccer practices, concocting an overwhelming chemical imbalance of sweat, … More
