Weekly World Fumes – August 23, 2012

Here’s the August 23, 2012 edition of Weekly World Fumes. Enjoy!

Nicki Minaj perfume bottle

Celeb Gossip:

Nikki Minaj shares with the world the perfume bottle for her new fragrance, Pink Friday. And I almost love this Schiaparelli-ish bottle. I would love it, if the bust was a solid color. I think this would make the bottle look less flea market and more like art.

Taylor Swift will  launch Enchanted Wonderstruck. I’m sure it will be some musky berry sweet woodsy thing.

Mugler the Leather Collection

New Launches:

INeKe has launched 2 perfumes. One is Sweet William which is in the Floral Curioustities Collection that is exclusive to Anthropologie. It includes notes of peach, cinnamon, clove, cumin, cedarwood, sandalwood, patchouli and Bourbon vanilla. It sounds like it could be dirty, but I don’t think INeKe can make anything dirty. It retails for $68 and will be available in October. There will also be Hothouse Flower in the Alphabetical Collection. It will include notes of Earl Grey tea, galbanum, fig, cypress, absinthe, frankincense, guaiacwood and cornsilk. Is absinthe a chic accord again?

Parfumerie Generale will  launch No.22 DjHenné next month with notes of gray lavender, spearmint, lilac, leather, blue cedar, myrrh, wheat and cocoa essence.

And I’m sure you’ve all heard by now that Mugler will have The Fragrances of Leather Collection which are all your favorite Muglers with the addition of leather. I can’t wait.

And Jovan has jumped on the “Westernized Oud” trend by launching three new scents: Silky Rose, Secret Amber and Intense Oud. Jovan is back to their psuedo-headshop “oil” trend that made them so famous. Jovan Intense Oud, keeping American men sexy.

Creed Spring Flower perfume

Perfumes News:

CREED spent a lot of money to find out their packaging for Spring Flower is cheap and tacky looking. Why don’t they read blogs? They freely give out this information for free.

EauMG Etc.:

I’m back from NYC and I had a great time while I was there. However, I came back feeling a bit ill but I find that is usually a sign of a good trip. While I was there, I sniffed tons of new things and caught up on sniffing things that I should have been sniffing. I should have Elements re-caps up next week so stop by and check those out.

Victoria signing off.
