There's just one rule I try to live by – if you're going to give your perfume a name that's a little edge, then make what's inside edgy or at least interesting. The Pink room's Darkly Audacious is a perfectly fine florgourchouli with notes of lemon, bergamot, and rosewood; heart notes of...

(no, you can't have them!) I'll fall in love again, come June. Armand Assante. It's just ridiculous. He's only getting sexier and hottier. He's the Helen Mirren of (male) Actors – we're talking age/hot-quotient here, not talent. Okay! On to perfume. Folks are always surprised that I love...

and it's time like that that I wonder if I'm in love with perfume or the collecting of perfume. This isn't a judgement call, btw – I think there is room for any number of reasons why folks collect. But reading that paragraph made me wonder about why people collect – and what they do with their...

Time to choose a perfume about love. It's easy to grab a bottle of Jean Patou Joy or a pretty soliflore, but we're real perfume enthusiasts here. There are at least a hundred kinds of love — shouldn't there be more than one type of Valentine's Day fragrance? First, let's consider the love...

Everyone ready? I'm sending perfumed hugs out to all of you lovely Posse peeps. In lieu of a perfume-centric post, I'm going with something (nearly) equally dear to my heart — lipstick. I don't wear much makeup these day, except for special occasions, but I do love a great lipstick,...

By this, I do not mean "perfume etiquette" – e.g., whether it's polite to offgas Dior Poison at the opera, although frankly I find people slowly unwrapping cough drops and hard candies far more annoying in that situation (crinkle crinkle criiinklle). No, I'm talking about the myriad ways...

Clémence Poésy attended the launch of Chloe's new perfume 'Love Story' held at the Institut du Monde Arabe on Wednesday (July 2) in Paris, France. The French actress wore a Chloe Fall 2014 layered dress in a light-pink hue, rendered with a charming colourful print and lace inserts, which had...

" descended over me, along with the gobsmacking beauty of the perfume, of course. The ever-patient Lydia. le sigh. How she keeps from just slapping me is a mystery. This Is Perfume. Old School Perfume. Nicknamed 'The Plum" by Roudnistka's circle of perfume pros, it is comprised of many...
