Even though I’m more of a Ben Affleck women myself, I love a good mystery. And, I also love anything CHANEL. Stay tuned for the big Brad Pitt reveal on Monday, October 15th…we’re all waiting in suspense!
I just recently wrote about Lady Gaga’s new fragrance, FAME, that come out as a black mist but doesn’t actually appear black on your skin…but look out Gaga, you just got one-upped. WODE by Bouddica actually comes out blue and STAYS BLUE on your skin and clothing. Of course, it quickly fades away but how shocking would that be? The fragance comes in a spray paint-inspired can, naturally, and, according to Refinery29, omits warm notes of juniper, berry, nutmeg, clary sage and angelica root – all in the gorgeous cobalt blue shade. Now you know what to get me for my birthday…
Kiehl’s Nashi Blossom & Pink Grapefruit:When I was sent a bottle of this new fragrance, I was soooo excited to try it. Not only because it’s Kiehl’s (and I LOVE Kiehl’s) but also because the idea of mixing Nashi Blossom and grapefruit just sounded like perfection to me…and it was.
Slatkin & Co. Root Beer Float Candle: A treat that always delights…sweet root beer poured over pure vanilla ice cream, with a touch of nutmeg will literally FLOAT through the room when you light this candle.
Bumble & Bumble Prep: Lately I’ve been all about the prep. I’ve been using a makeup primer and now, I’m also into the hair styling prep. Bumble & Bumble’s products are fantastic so I wasn’t surprised when I started using and loving this prep product.
In short, the new Bottega Veneta Eau de Parfum is fashion in a bottle. When I heard that the Italian fashion house was creating its first fragrance, I was elated…you see, I saw my first Bottega bag when I was studying abroad in Venice, Italy and I instantly fell in love. According to the release, Tomas Maier, the creative force behind Bottega Veneta, conceived the first fragrance as a dream of the Venetian countryside —love. The colors of the bottle are signature BV: a brunito cap and collar, an ebano logo and a skin-colored leather ribbon clipped wth a brunito butterfly (so elegant) and the bottle was inspired by Venetian glasswork and the traditonal Italian carafe.
Looks aside, cause we all know I’m a sucker for pretty packaging, the scent itself evokes the sensuality of the house’s leather goods. The fragrance is what they call a “leathery floral” that marries scents of the Venetian countryside – fresh meadows, mown hay, flowers, earth and wood…I’m flashing back to winter 2003 and summer 2005 in Italia. Sigh.
