Smell Bent has recently launched their limited edition 2010 Holiday Smellies. I’m not a holiday person (I know, something is wrong with me), but I’m loving the inspiration behind these 5 new Smellies:
Dr. Dreidel : “freshly carved hiba wood, spiced with angelica root and pimento leaf” -I’m stoked about this one. Thank you Smell Bent for not be Christmas-centric!
Elf-Fulfilling Prophecy : “a little velvet pocket full of cinnamon sugar cookies, naughty pipe tobacco and toy shop sawdust” – I have no idea what to expect with that list of notes!
The Bi-Polar Express : “a blend of Roman, German, and South African chamomile with honeycomb, blue tansy and smooth mahogany” – OK, I can see how this name can turn some people off . Bipolar disorder is something that many people and families struggle with and I understand that one should be sensitive to that. However, I can see the humor in this name and the calming notes. Hmmm…maybe I’ll send this in a care package to a few of my family members!
Reindeer Games : “French incense bergamot, poplar bud and amber, with templin and douglas fir” – Douglas fir? I’m curious. I love the smell of douglas fir in perfumery!
Sexy Turtleneck : “soft woods, musk, tonka, resins, butter extract and clean patchouli” – I find this name funny since I hate wearing turtlenecks but my husband loves me in them. He says they are so ski-bunny sexy. They just make me feel claustrophobic sexy 🙂
These limited edition perfumes come in an oil which retails for $20 and an EDT spray which retails for $45. Sample sizes are available for purchase too at Smell Bent.
