This summer has been crazy for me and I’ve missed many weeks of Weekly World Fumes. I’m trying to get back in the swing of things. So, here we go. Here’s Weekly World Fumes but without a video.
Leighton Meester is the new face for Vera Wang’s newest scent, Lovestruck Floral Rush (not Floral Rash).
Olympic swimmer, Ryan Lochte, tweeted that his favorite fragrances are by CREED. CREED is really favored by the male Olympians it seems. Wonder how much those promoted tweets cost? 😉
I can’t wait to try Chanel Coco Noir. The bottle is gorgeous. The notes include grapefruit, bergamot, rose, jasmine, narcissus, geranium leaves, tonka beans, patchouli, sandalwood, vanilla and incense. I think I may need this. Have I mentioned that I love that bottle?
Crabtree & Evelyn Blue Himalayan is a fragrance inspired by the mythical “blue poppy” (watch out Coach might sue!). Notes include mandarin, orange leaf, lemon, ginger, rose, champaca, wildflowers, pink pepper, Lapsang Souchong, sandalwood, and patchouli. I’m trying my best to imagine what this one could smell like. Champaca and tea that smells like a country smoked ham?
Isaac Mizrahi launches Fabulous, his first fragrance. It includes notes of mandarin, nectarine, bergamot, jasmine, peony, freesia, tuberose, sandalwood, vanilla and cedar. (Not very fabulous sounding). The bottle is “art deco”. Um, maybe it’s “art deco” for the Claire’s crowd.
Providence Perfume Divine Noir is a “darker” version of the original Divine. It includes notes of bitter orange, coriander, bergamot, orange blossom, neroli, jasmine, rose, oakmoss, angelica, vanilla bean, elemi and aged patchouli. This all-natural perfume sounds good to me. I hope to have a review up soon 🙂
Etat Libre d’Orange will launch Dangerous Complicity in October. This fragrance contains notes of rum, ginger, bay essence, coconut, calamus, osmanthus, jasmine, ylang ylang, lorenox, patchouli, leather accord, sandalwood and cashmere woods.
There’s big money in perfume. $1.2 million worth of Givenchy perfume was stolen in France but recovered. Oh, the perfume mafia!
Samsung patents a mobile phone that sprays perfume. I’m all for this 🙂
This past week my cousin and her girlfriend were in town. That kept me busy doing the entertaining and tourist stuff. Frink is in love with her and her girlfriend. Like seriously, he loves them more than he loves me.
My house was officially listed last week. Nobody is interested in it all and that is slightly depressing. But, I can’t say that I find it surprising.
It seems that every perfume I’ve tested this week is oud based. As if I wasn’t already oud’d out…
The rest of the week I’ve been playing catch up. I’m getting a client’s product ready for NYFW and getting all the fall stuff ready.
And next week I’m off to NYC! Until next time, I’ll smell you later!
