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...

So no perfume review for this week. I will review the gel: very effective in delivering heat with a "nice clean" smell that's an eye-watering eucalyptus. But as I mentioned, I can stand upright and use the clutch on the car without whimpering. I hope by the weekend to be back in the...

The nice folks at Coty Prestige – makers of Bottega Veneta's new perfume and Balenciaga L'Essence – sent me a press release, I of course do what I always do, — er, asked for samples for me and however many of you I could get them for, and they sent me generous amounts of both scents that...

The repeating perfume bottle problem should be fixed. I uploaded it, it wouldn't show up in Firefox, so I thought I screwed it up. Had no idea another browser was displaying it. IE should be showing the correct format now, it didn't like flexible page width. Who knew?!?!? Chrome seems to be...

And I've already done my other New Year's ritual, old fogey that I am – going through my checkbook (does anyone else still have one of these?) and writing 2012 in the date line for about the first 20 checks or so. Old habits die hard, dontcha know? So share with us what you did to ring in...

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...

Warning for anyone looking for a perfume post, this isn't it exactly. It will touch on smell, but only as it relates to my New Health Kick. So skippity skip skip if you're wanting something more perfumey today. I'm the resident topic changer. About a month ago I was introduced to my new...

" 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...

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,...

Perfume Posse and I are not responsible or liable. Patty wrote this in a post this week, I'm pasting it here: "The best rule I have, make sure the entire swap is complete and both parties say they are happy before you open and start using. If you swap for a fragrance and for some reason the
