Here’s Weekly World Fumes for April 4th, 2013:
Armani paid Cate Blanchett $10 million USD to be the face of Armani fragrances or maybe it’s an Armani fragrance. Who cares?
Marc Jacobs will launch Honey with such notes of fruit punch, orange blossom, honeysuckle, honey and vanilla. The bottle is a very twee bee.
BPAL is launching a collection of perfumes inspired by the artwork of preschoolers. Proceeds will be donated to First Book, an organization that distributes books to programs and schools that serve low-income children in the U.S. and Canada.
Thirdman has launched Eau Nomade. It’s an eau de cologne with notes of cardamom, lemon and blood orange. I smelled this in January. It’s a really sheer green cardamom.
Comptoir Sud Pacifique will launch the Voyages en Orient collection that features five perfumes: Jasmin Poudré, Épices Sultanes, Bois Royal, Oudh Sensuel, y Oudh Intense.
Eau d’Italie has launched Acqua Decima with notes of lemon, mandarin, mint leaves, neroli, petitgrain, hedione, white wood and vetiver. Is “aqua” back?
Olfatif is a new monthly perfume subscription program that launched this week. It’s $18 for three samples. The April box contained L’Artisan Parfumeur Voleur de Rose, Imaginary Authors Soft Lawn and Sonoma Scent Studio Fig Tree.
Creative director, Nicola Formichetti, is no longer with Mugler. Listen up, Womanity was not that bad.
Oh, Olfactive Studio has launched in the U.S. and is available at Bergdorf.
It’s been a busy week for me. My house is proof of that.
My sister had her baby last Sunday. She finally named him days later. She did not name him Mario Lopez. Disappointing.
I’m going to a Dina Martina show tonight. That should be the best thing that happened to me all week…other than the nephew being born and stuff.
This week I’ve been craving La Nouvelle Vague-ish heavy eyeliner paired with big hair, black botija olives, powdery perfumes and embarrassingly cheesy French disco. Have a great weekend!
This is Victoria signing off and until next time, I’ll smell ya later!
