Nicole Richie’s fragrance, Nicole, is now in stores. It is inspired by Southern ladies from Alabama.
And can I just say that I am sooo sick of the media saying that Lady Gaga’s Fame smells like blood and semen! Stop it!
Oscar de la Renta will launch 6 fragrances by perfumer Calice Becker that will be exclusive to Saks Fifth Avenue.
Ulrich Lang has launched Lightscape with notes of galbanum, lemon, violet leaves, iris, rose, violet flowers, cyclamen, cedar, ambergris, tonka bean, cashmere wood, musk and ambrette. I sniffed it at Elements. It’s a “modern” violet.
Frapin will launch Speakeasy in October. It contains notes of rum, davana, Italian orange, Brazilian lime, mint, geranium, leather accord, ciste, labdanum, styrax, tobacco, immortelle, tonka bean and white musk. And the immortelle killed it for me.
Mugler Angel is the most “popular” perfume among perfume reviewers.
And I’m sure you’ve all heard abotu that little boy in the UK that found a pound of ambergris worth about $63,000. Some 8 year olds have all of the luck!
It’s been a busy week for me. Nothing fun to talk about. Last weekend I cleaned up the house for a broker’s caravan. And this weekend my husband is out of town visiting his family in Ohio. So, it’s me and the frugs wearing Mitsouko, eating pickled beets and watching Ticked-Off Trannies with Knives.
