Summer is here! I’m not excited (I do not like hot weather) – just stating the fact. Suddenly I do not know what to wear, clothes- or perfume-wise. My cat Rusty, on the other hand (paw?), isn’t confused: he knows what NOT to wear – his fur. He’s shedding everywhere!
I do not have any practical use for that amount of Guerlain’s Muguet but it’s such a beautiful scent and I really like this year’s bottle! Please somebody tell me I shouldn’t be ordering it! Thanks for tempting me go to Robin (Now Smell This).
I think everybody has read this already but if somehow you missed it read semi-final of Prix Eau Faux 2012 at Now Smell This. It’s hilarious! My favorite is Rhapsody by United Airlines for the print copy and Fairleigh Fanged by Fairleigh Lowd for the TV commercial (I know it wasn’t a category but I just “saw” it while reading).
Natalie (Another Perfume Blog) published an extremely captivating fiction story to accompany her review of Chanel‘s Bois des Iles: In my college film class, we studied ‘Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.’ I think this was largely so my professor, a man who styled himself a feminist but managed to conduct the whole lecture without mentioning Anita Loos, could share his theories about Marilyn Monroe. (UPD: APB is closed now)
Ron (Notable Scents) reviewed my favorite Ineke’s perfume: Field Notes From Paris is an orange blossom fragrance that is full-bodied but not overpowering. This would be a great office scent as it feels like a classic masculine with a modern twist.
Jo Loves – Jo Malone‘s new brand, – finally offers samples from their site. You can order two free samples. It says on the site that they ship perfumes to the U.K. only but my samples order went through, I got a confirmation in e-mail, so you can also try if you’re interested in the line.
