After I had announced the crowdfunding project for the upcoming collection from Spanish perfumer Oliver Valverde, I decided to catch up with him and we had a nice conversation over WhatsApp video. Oliver stopped showcasing his perfumes at the niche fragrance shows in Italy a few years ago. And to some this might have sounded like he was retiring. We missed him and his kind presence, as well as his... Read full article: Keeping Up With Oliver Valverde from Fragrantica Perfumes and Colognes Magaz...

Die 6 schönsten DIY-Einrichtungsideen für WG-Küchen

Die Küche ist schon in den meisten WGs das wichtigste Zimmer, denn hier wird sich getroffen, es wird geschnattert und gekocht und bis tief in die Nacht zusammengehockt, wenn es sich nicht grade um eine dieser Zweck-WGs handelt, aber die sind ja eh ulkig, denn zusammen Leben heißt schließlich auch einen Teil des Alltags miteinander zu teilen. In jede WG-Küche gehört demnach ein Tisch, an dem alle Mitbewohner*innen Platz finden, wild zusammengewürfelte Stühle und ein Putzplan, gerne selbstgebaste...

How To Have The Perfect Girls Night In

Nights out are so last year, and if we ignore the fact that is because we have basically been forced to stay inside this year, we can also take into consideration the fact that the nights are getting colder, the darkness is creeping in much earlier than we have been used to, and let’s be honest, there are plenty of winter bugs going around on top of COVID-19 now, which does not make for the best situation when going out to party. 2020 is very much the year of staying in, so, with that i...

Memoire D'Homme Nina Ricci: The Most Pleasant Memories

Today I would like to recall one of my favorite fragrances launched in the beginning of the 21st century, which I bought as soon as I first tried it in the store and wore almost daily for several months. I didn't know anything about its pyramid then; Memoire D'Homme seemed to me a refreshing and very smooth scent. At the time I found a pleasant coffee-licorice sweetness in it, which reminded me o...

Bye-Don: a farewell to the Trump aesthetic

It’s time to reflect on the weaponising of a certain Fox News-adjacent look that dominated his four years in officeThe age of Trump was an ugly one. An ugliness in profound and harrowing senses – racism, lies and callousness – extended into a literal ugliness that, while in no way as significant as the president’s actions, has often made the past four years feel like an assault on the senses. This administration has looked and sounded like no other, just as it has acted like no other. The nastin...

Podcast #660: How Ancient Greek Tragedies Can Heal the Soul

When you think about ancient Greek tragedies, you probably think about people in togas spouting stilted, archaic language — stories written by stuffy playwrights to be watched by snooty audiences. My guest today argues that this common conception of Greek tragedies misses the power of plays that were in fact created by warriors for warriors, and which represent a technology of healing that’s just as relevant today as it was two millennia ago. His name is Bryan Doerries and he’s the author of ...

Bath And Body Works You’re The One: A Review

To my nose, Bath Body Works’ novelties are always worth sniffing out (both candles and fragrances).

The cynical response involves lambasting the inner mechanics of capitalism; another way of ap... Read full article: Bath And Body Works You’re The One: A Review from Fragrantica Perfumes and Col...

Will AI Make You an Addict?

The novel I’m writing is set in the future, tentatively in the year 2047, so it’s roughly one human generation ahead of us. For technology, however, that’s many generations ahead. Consider that the first iPhone shipped in 2007 (13 years ago). If you got an iPhone 4S when it first came out, that was 9 years ago, and the 5S was 7 years ago. The iPad is 10.5 years old. The Apple Watch is 5.5 years old. Look back 27 years to 1993. Back then I was using a 486DX 50mhz computer with a 250MB ha...

Change the game, not the girl: 5 weibliche Coaches machen den Weg zu Sport spielend leicht

Bei uns Frauen gibt es im Teenager-Alter diesen Moment, an dem wir einfach … aufhören aktiv zu sein. Bei manchen von uns sind es Mannschaftssportarten wie Fußball oder Hockey, die wir plötzlich aufgeben, obwohl wir sie immer gerne gespielt haben; oder wir gehen nicht mehr so oft mit unseren Freund*innen schwimmen; einige von uns nutzen sogar vorgetäuschte Kopf- oder Periodenschmerzen, um die Sporthalle zu meiden. Für einige von uns wird Sport einfach irgendwann zur lästigen Pflicht, die Jungs le...
