Sephora’s Disney Jasmine Collection released this week to Beauty Insiders along with the new A Whole New World Eau De Parfum Spray.
Eep! There’s definitely a need to collect ’em all vibe from these collections. If you have Cinderella’s So This is Love Perfume I imagine A Whole New World will make its way into your stash at some point. That is, of course, if you’re as diseased as I am and just need to collect them all!
If you think I’m bad with beauty you should see my with comic books and action figures. WORST!
I didn’t love Cinderella’s scent as I felt it was a little too mature and floral. Jasmine’s is quite soft and delicate and no sadly does not contain her namesake in the notes, sorry about that.
Take a look!
The new Victoria’s Secret Very Sexy Temptation Eau de Parfum is my Valentine’s Day scent of the day. This tantalizing mix of passion flower, Moroccan jasmine, and blushing orchid is positively addicting and has incredible throw and linger on a single spritz.
Wil Wheaton wrote a rather long post about his role as Wesley a few days ago. I swear I spent so much time on Usenet groups, IRC Channels, and Trek forums defending his character to my fellow trekkies it could have been borderline absurd. You know how you think people that fight on Facebook, forums, etc are absolute fools? At some point in my younger Internet life I was that fool, defending Wil Wheaton to the death.
Needless to say his perspective of the character never quite matched up with my own.
I must still be disillusion because no matter how many times I re-watch a Generations episode I still love Wesley. He was a freaking cool character, sorry, but I disagree with the haters (that includes you Wil).
I digress…another one of my fangirl moment stems from the fact Agent Provocateur has introduced a new fragrance. Wil Wheaton, Generations, Star Trek, Agent Provocateur, it’s all fangurlisms to me.
When I was in the 7th grade I fell in love with the Cthulhu. Yeah, that sounded slightly weird and possibly a lead in for a Japanese fan girl hentai moment. Sorry, let me correct that, I fell in love with Lovecraft. It all started out with me being a terrible bookworm you see. I was all about reading R.L. Stine and other supernatural teen rubbish.
My teacher at the time duly noted my odd addiction to trashy supernatural novels and encouraged it by introducing me to some great works of literature. To this day I blame her for my odd love affair with Victor Frankenstein, of course, Sting might have helped a LITTLE bit as well.
7th grade year was also the year she introduced me to many of H.P. Lovecraft’s smaller stories and novels. Being an avid reader of Heavy Metal for over twenty years now you could imagine that H.P. Lovecraft’s “Weird Tales” were terribly appealing to my need for anything horrifying and unusual.
Heck by the time I was of age I was positive I’d be a perfect attendee for Miskatonic University.
Needless to say I’ve grown up a little and at this point in life anything with words on it I’ll pretty much read but I still so adore anything Cthulhu related. From old D&D references to new gaming ones, the Cthulhu Mythos has always had a spot in my heart.
Being terribly romantic I’d say the reintroduction of the Lab’s Cthulhu in Love Perfume Oil is a perfect V-Day treat to tell the one you care about how truly in love you are with them.
Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab, creator of obscure, unique fragrance oils, launched a Fraggle Rock Perfume Oil Collection a few months ago. I’ve been reviewing the collection for you the last several weeks and came across some fond Fraggle-y fragrances in the collection.
I’m old enough to remember when Fraggle Rock was on HBO and quite have fond memories of watching it (as an adult I even have the DVDs, should I admit that? Probably not!).
Red was a Fraggle I loved to hate. On one hand her positive, perky personality was quite inspiring but did you ever notice she had a slight case of bi-polar? Seriously, girlfriend was happy and energetic one minute and sad and dishearten the next. Poor, confused Fraggle.
At least her fragrance isn’t all over the damn scale.
