This week, I’ve been trying out wearing perfume to bed. Not like, Marilyn Monroe and her infamous Chanel No. 5 perfume to bed sort of way. More like, an aromatherapeutic perfume to bed - specifically Tata Harper’s Aromatic Irritability Treatment. While the directions say that you should rub into your palms during moments of stress, I find that dotting the back of my neck and my wrists is a tremendously soothing nighttime experience. I also have Honey Lavender tea on hand as well, completing this holistic, treat-yo-self bedtime story.
It definitely has that earthy, hippie smell to it, one that most people probably are immediately put off by — one of the notes *is* patchouli. However, my boyfriend says it smells fantastic and even requested to wear it himself last night! I’m not sure what effect this has had on my sleep, so the experiment continues…
I love how fragrances are getting so much run time in video! This one was just uploaded on November 5th; it’s an under-3 minute homage & discussion about Carolina Herrera’s eponymous perfume turning 25. Her branding is so particular, you can see the delicate CH femininity threading its way through this video. Very subtle, super sophisticated. Iconic.

Shame, I thought for sure he did. ;)
One choice is Gatsby in Jicky, which I think would be incredible! I could see Daisy in Shalimar over the others. Well, no, actually, since she’s pretty conventional (and her character is pretty appalling to say the least), just let ‘er have No. 5. She’d want to be like all the originals that wore it, not realizing she’s a phony.
Just a nice fragrance shot, fit to reblog.

Oh dear, this is… over the top. Adweek called it “Bellagio Las Vegas in music-video form.” Just to - y’know - prepare you for this *ahem* feast for the *choking* eyes.
Nicky: (SNIFFS) Your shit smells like Shalimar.
Must have rubbed off when she hugged you goodbye.
What a bitch.
