Book Me a Stay on Lemon Island: Reviewing Atelier Cologne’s Latest Fragrance

Immaculately recreating citrus fruit in perfumery – never mind a recreation which lasts on the skin for more than 20 minutes – is no small feat. Still, Atelier Cologne has made a name for themselves in the niche fragrance scene for their lifelike citrus scents which use high doses of natural materials. Much of the buzz this house receives online centers around two hits: Orange Sanguine, which... Read full article: Book Me a Stay on Lemon Island: Reviewing Atelier Cologne’s Latest Fragrance fro...

How to Write a Love Letter

Editor’s note:  This article was originally published in 2009. We’ve updated it. We’ve previously discussed the idea that every man should strive to be a romantic lover, and how the date is one of a man’s best tools for wooing a lady. A man’s other major tool in the romance department is the love letter. As long as love (and writing utensils) has existed, so has the love letter. It has been the go-to way for millions of men throughout history to confess or reiterate their feelings of love for a...

Mugler Angel Nova Eau de Parfum Arrives Just In Time for Valentine’s Day

Ahhhh Angel! I have such a love hate relationship with you! Perhaps the new Mugler Angel Nova will help me to love more and hate a little less. Angel can be an overwhelming scent experience due the heavy dose of patchouli. That patchouli has a seriously hard kick and when you present it to someone like me who likes sweet gourmands it can be a really hard pill to swallow. Honestly, I’d rather bath in Flowerbomb than mist myself down with Angel. It’s just too harsh! Too loud! Too HEY HERE ...

What Wong Taught Me About Showing Up, Grinding It Out, And Working Hard

New Post From The Franchise King® Immediately after I came up with the title of this post, I did a search for the definition of “grinding it out.” I’m embarrassed to tell you that one of the things that appeared was the title of a book written by Ray Kroc. Yes, that Ray Kroc. The founder* of McDonald’s. My bad. I should have read that book a long time ago. *Kroc was not really the founder of McDonald’s. The McDonald brothers were. Ray was the guy who turned the business into the fran...

Cauliflower rice can be a bit bland without some proper seasoning so here’s a little something that can make yours a little yummier!

You Really Don’t Need Valentine’s Day To Make Someone Feel Loved But Romance Is Alive This Month

February is here! A time for love, romance, and for a chonky little groundhog to tell us if we’ll be suffering more Winter or if Spring will arrive soon. I decorated yesterday for Valentine’s Day!

How Covid Upended the Lipstick Index With A Self Care Revolution

The economy is in pretty bad shape which means the lipstick index should be going up but in 2020 COVID upended the Lipstick Index and started a self-care revolution. Makeup sales plunged and what came out of it? A rally of skincare! Skincare sales were up 24% last year alone and are sure to go up even further as more and more people stay home and ditch their makeup bags. I haven’t quite reached the stage I’m ditching my makeup bag just yet. This morning I woke up, hopped on my treadmill for...

Whatever Happened to Urban Decay: A Case of Formula Changes

Whatever happened to Urban Decay? Their formulas sure has changed over the last decade hasn’t it? This weekend Christine (Temptalia) did a poll on Instagram asking which brands don’t interest you anymore and I didn’t even hesitate with my reply. Right away my fingers few over my Iphone to type out “Urban Decay”. Urban Decay hasn’t rallied since 2012 when it was purchased by L’Oreal for the sum of 300-400 million (the amount was never disclosed). Maybe they should have held out for the big ...
