Smoke In Your Bottle: Ancient, and Not What You Think

Such a simple, small word rarely incites such intense reactions. To perfumistas, the word, and smell itself, can be extremely polarizing. To beginners, ‘smoky’ might sound like an aura to avoid altogether, conjuring up images of smoldering campfires and Marlboro-wielding grannies.

A Perfume That Smells Like Aliens: Extra-Terrestrial Scents Part 2

We’ve already covered “eau de space” on Fragrantica, a NASA-inspired Kickstarter project that aimed to evoke the very particular aroma of metal and gunpowder that accompanies astronauts’ spacewalks, but there isn’t much that’s extra-terrestrial about it, as the scented volatiles are caused by radiation and other rays emitted by the sun reacting with human materials.  As fragrance hou...

Why I Tape My Mouth Shut at Night

My bedtime routine for the past month or so has looked like this: Take out contacts. Brush and floss teeth. Say prayers. Read a book.  Tape mouth shut.  *Record scratch* “Tape your mouth shut?

You weirdo.” Yes, it is weird, but there’s a method to my weirdness.  I got the idea from reading Breath: The New Science of a Lost Art , in preparation for interviewing its author, James Nestor, for the podcast.

5 Best Sex Positions for Fat People

Being overweight or obese doesn’t exclude sexual activity. The research made in 2015 showed that men with higher body mass (not lean muscle mass) had had more sexual partners than those who had the usual weight. Why so? No one has the answer to this question. What’s more interesting, though, is that overweight women have less sex than overweight men. At least that’s what the Journal of Sexual Medicine has to say. Sex is a physical activity that presupposes burning fat, spending calories and putt...
