Have We Run Out of New Notes in Perfumery?

In the 1980s, the science and strategy of the aroma chemicals industry had fairly evergreen territory ahead of it, with consumer trust in production-line, laboratory-backed innovation fueling olfactory fascination in novel, never-smelled-before smells, both in terms of synthetic fragrance materials and finished blends. The bold and unfamiliar in commercial perfumery communicated the exciting and s... Read full article: Have We Run Out of New Notes in Perfumery? from Fragrantica Perfumes and Col...

Sydney Grace Alyssa & Bailey Lip Creams Reviews & Swatches

Alyssa Sydney Grace Alyssa Lip Cream ($10.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a medium-dark pink with soft, warm undertones and a cream finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage in a single layer, which spread evenly across my lips and didn’t appear streaky. There was a smidgen of product that sank into my deeper lip lines that was visible in the close-up but not in person. The consistency was light-medium in thickness, though not heavy to we...

Life’s Big Ask

Perhaps you have a big ask to make of life. This may include your goals, desires, and intentions. Now what does life indicate that it wants from you? What is life’s big ask of you? One of life’s big asks of me was: I’m gonna inspire you with a bunch of cool ideas about personal growth. Publish them the same day I give them to you. Don’t delay or hesitate, or I’ll send these to someone else. Some ideas will feel edgy. Some will invite criticism. Publish them anyway. You get to publish...

News from J.F. Schwarzlose Berlin: Tradition Quality Since 1856

Most of the news coverage of our favorite brands has been divested of the exhibition reportage that Fragrantica editors siphoned to you in previous years due to the Covid-19 pandemic, but that does not mean that you will be short on information on the brands that rock the fragrance world. One such brand is J.F. Schwarzlose Berlin, established in 1856. The German company J.F. Schwarzlose Söhne ... Read full article: News from J.F.

How to Get Started With Composting

Once upon a time, I figured composting was either for serious gardeners or “zero waste” type folks who spent a lot of time and energy on reducing their carbon footprint. As it turns out, though, composting doesn’t have to be a big, zeal-requiring commitment; you can, in fact, take it slow, experiment, and see if it’s something that works for your life and property, and the benefits extend to people and households of all types. It’s also a practice that fits with all budgets. While you ca...

Was erwartet uns im Sequel des Netflix-Erotikfilms 365 Days?

Achtung: Dieser Artikel enthält Spoiler! Da wir alle hier erwachsen sind, glaube ich, wir können ruhig ehrlich miteinander reden: Niemand von uns schaut Filme wie Fifty Shades of Grey für den Plot! In Erotik-Thrillern zählt doch vor allem, wie viel Sex in der Story verpackt werden kann, ohne daraus gleich einen Porno zu machen – und genau das macht sie so beliebt. Der nächste Hit in dieser Kategorie kommt – wie sollte es auch anders sein – von Netflix. 365 Days heißt das Original und gl...

ScentCulture: A New Project About Perfumery Backstage

MAC Powerglass Plumping Lipgloss Brings Back Some Feel Good Makeup Memories

MAC Powerglass Plumping Lipgloss dropped today but I’m not sure how far we’ll be taking this considering we all have to wear masks for god knows how long. I do wish they pushed these lipglosses to another date but hey, they do bring back some feel good makeup memories. These new glosses are available in six shades and promise a high-shine, non-sticky texture with a “sweet sting” complex that increases stimulation to lips to create volume. Hey, at least they admit the formula stings! Apparently ...

Macht die Pandemie unsere Freundschaften kaputt?

What makes an eyeshadow palette appealing to you?

I love seeing a cohesive color story where I can see several different look ideas pop out at me. I also tend to gravitate toward smoother, more intense shimmers or deeper tones, so rich, jewel-tones always draw me in. — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

How to Use a Clit Vibrator

Every person with a clitoris values this tiny part of their body and tries to make the most out of it due to the impressive pleasure a clitoris can provide. In fact, this small organ serves the most sensitive part of the female genitals and is responsible for orgasm, both clitoral and vaginal since its structure is much more complicated than we think and has a hundred times more power than we would expect. Theoretical backdrop of the question Let’s discuss the theoretical aspect of the questio...

Party On! How to Host a Memorable Socially Distanced Party This Summer

Party On! How to Host a Memorable Socially Distanced Party This Summer I’m going to step outside the budget fashion space for a minute and talk about parties. It’s not too much of a stretch, either.

People escape from stress at parties; they laugh, bond, and create new memories. In this time, when illne...
