Smell Bent Lobster Cellphone EDT Perfume Review

Smell Bent Lobster Cellphone EDT Fragrance Review

Smell Bent Lobster Cellphone is in the Radio Dada collection. A limited edition 2011 spring fragrance collection inspired by surrealism and dadaist art. Lobster Cellphone is obviously a perfume based on Dali’s Lobster Telephone and surrealist objects. Has a bit of a Schiaparelli feel, no?

Lobster Cellphone opens up as a sparkling pink grapefruit juice and the smell of its peel. It’s very refreshing. After a few minutes, I do detect a tangy green tomato leaf. I love this. It was… Continue reading | 8 Comments

Elf-Fulfilling Prophecy, in my opinion, is the bottled essence of dysfunctional family Christmases from the past, present, and even… the future. Upon first whiff, I knew if I was to ever present National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation in the glorious realm of Smell-o-vision, that I’d have to purchase gallons of Elf-Fulfilling Prophecy.

Smell Bent Holiday 2010 Dr. Dreidel EDT Perfume Review

Smell Bent Dr. Dreidel perfume review

Happy Hanukkah! Thank you Smell Bent for not forgetting the Heebs! For Holiday 2010, Smell Bent has launched 5 limited edition scents. Dr. Dreidel is one of them. Dr. Dreidel is a spicy “green” scent. It’s heavy on angelica and clove-like pimento. It summons up the ancient spirit of...Drakkar Noir.

I’m going to be blunt. I really don’t care for Dr. Dreidel. It’s a spicy, clove-like scent with “wet” cedar woods. It’s very masculine and a bit old-school. It’s hot and cold… Continue reading | 10 Comments
