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.
I’m hoping Escada Cherry In the Air is more cherry than cherry blossom because if it is, I’ll be in heaven!
Launching for Spring this new limited edition fragrance is inspired by the cherry blossom tree in full bloom.
Couture La La Eau de Parfum is the latest release from Juicy Couture for Spring 2013. I know, the name is weird but the blushing pink color of the fragrance looks very pretty….
The notes however could provide a little similiar to the original Juicy Couture Fragrance.
P.S. A book rec after the jump perhaps?!
Once upon a time, back in the 90′s, when it seemed like Jean Rochefort was much younger by not a lot, he starred in one of my favorite French films, The Hairdresser’s Husband.
As with many French films I’ve watched, The Hairdresser’s Husband contains its fair deal of sex, passion, romance, love, and some sadness.
The story revolves around a 12 year old version of Jean Rochefort’s character who falls in love with his hairdresser. Later on in life he romances and marries a similiar such hairdresser. Obviously his wet dreams about his childhood crush have carried well into his adult ones. And so begins an odd romance….!
Without giving too much away there’s a scene in the movie that showcases the characters having a drink of cologne and aftershave because they don’t have any liquor. It’s morbid, comical, and it always made me laugh.
Funny enough, leave it to Lush, to create a perfume based on this foreign film and dub it the Hairdresser’s Husband. I’m surprised that Lush didn’t make it edible as well so we could wear it and drink it as well.
But sorry, no reenacting fabulously memorable movie moments here, this is simply for wearing not drinking.
I admit I stuffed my own stocking with Fortune Cook Soap Solid Smell Good in Candy Cane Fluff this year. What? A girl gotta spoil herself sometimes.
I’ve been very pleased with Fortune Cookie Soap’s offerings lately so I ordered a few goodies from their Christmas Collection. One of those items was their Solid Smell Good.
Take a look!
