Welcome to the first ever Weekly World Fumes! This is your weekly update for fragrance news, celeb gossip, new launches and anything else I feel like talking about. This is the beta version, hope to improve soon. Enjoy!
Selena Gomez reveals the bottle of her new fragrance. I like it in a Salvador Dali interprets a perfume bottle designed for a 18 year old pop star.
Madonna is high on perfume stardom and announces that she will be launching a men’s fragrance that will be woodsy, ambery, musky and like whiskey. Yes, please, I want that.
Nicki Minaj announces that she will be launching a perfume this fall. The name is unknown. The bottle is unknown. And the notes, why bother?
Whatever happened to that Lady Gaga perfume? I haven’t heard about it in like forever.
Denise Richards…you haven’t heard that name in a long time, right? She will be launching a beachy fragrance. And it’s rumored that she wears Child.
Jennifer Love Hewitt says her signature fragrance is McCormick’s vanilla extract that one uses for cooking. Men love it, blah, blah. It’s Jennifer Love Hewitt, of course, men love it. They love her. Even my husband crushes on her.
Smell Bent launches Liberty For All. 50% of the proceeds will go to Liberty Wildlife Fund. It has notes of orange blossom, bergamot, ozone, tonka bean, hay + more.
Amouage Beloved Woman will be launched. Go here for more details.
Flirt! Kittenesque is available at Kohl’s. It has notes of orange blossom, raspberry, and vanilla.
Bath and Body Works has Wild Berry Tulips. I hate that name. It has notes of honeysuckle, raspberry and tulip (which doesn’t have a smell in “real” life.
Victoria’s Secret launches another fruity-floral, Love is Heavenly.
NEST Fragrances will have their Beach candle available soon. I’m in love with the packaging.
There’s a fragrance inspired by new Mac books and the media is loving it.
Kerosene Whip and Roses will be available at MiN NY. It’s a rose and leather scent. Whip it good.
Luckyscent has some new stuff. Go check it out.
People are talking about Madonna’s Truth or Dare (haven’t tried it yet) and By Kilian Asian Tales (yawn).
I’m busy with a few new projects this week. I’m always getting myself into something. I’ve been reading Denyse’s of Grain de Musc, The Perfume Lover. I’m hooked. I absolutely love it. I’ve been flirting with fragrance as usual. No new cravings. And strangely, I’ve been wearing more eye makeup and more nude lipstick. What’s happening to me?
And next week on EauMG, it’s Naturals Week. Check it out!
Signing off – Victoria
