I love it when celebrities get interviewed about their fragrances. What is there to say about a fragrance, ever? Usually: very little. This time? So much.
IKEA, a shopping experience so miserable that it should only be undertaken with blood relatives, is releasing a home fragrance line which aims to, in small part, turn the IKEA environment into Proustian memory.

Rihanna stopped at Macy’s in New York Monday to promote her brand new fragrance, RiRi, a fruity floral with top notes of “mandarin, cassis, rum and passion fruit” according to Fragrantica, aka The Bible. Her in-store look was somewhere between ‘80s Madonna and Marie-Antoinette, and clearly she’s got the hand-model…
Amid the back and forth between Nicki Minaj and untouchable music deity Taylor Swift, Rihanna snuck in and announced her new fragrance with this perfume ad for RiRi by Rihanna.
You already know this, but your sense of smell is linked to your memory. For me, the smell of Folgers coffee will always remind me of my grandmother’s kitchen. I’ve been obsessed with perfume, and cosmetics in general, since I was a kid, even though I’m a horrific, slovenly dresser with many a bad hair day.
Diddy is back in the celebrity fragrance game, and everyone needs to pay attention, dammit! On May 6, Sean “Diddy” Combs is launching 3AM, which he named thusly because, according to a recent Style.com interview, it’s “a very one-on-one time” of night.
Drew Barrymore is coming out with three new scents as part of her makeup line Flower Beauty: Radiant, Cherished and Sultry. She's still a normal, however, who has to deal with bad smells on mass transit like the rest of us.

That's right: At a new pop-up shop, you will "pay" for Marc Jacobs fragrances with tweets.
It was a few years ago when I was the editor of a women's pop culture website that I started writing about perfume on my blog, YesterdaysPerfume.com. Trying to be discreet in the middle of an open office, I'd pop open a tiny one-milliliter vial of the decanted perfume du jour and dab it on my wrist with its plastic…
The oh-so-fun lads of One Direction took the time to sniff a bunch of chemicals and "create" a fragrance — Our Moment — and in the UK, the scent has been on sale at Harrod's for a week and has already raked in £360,000 — which is $560,00 — as in over HALF A MILLION. In one week. This number includes pre-orders, aka…
The man lies, fully clothed, impeccably dressed, in a a bathtub. His chiseled jaw is set. Square. Granite. He takes a deep drag from an almost-finished cigarette. She removes it from his lips, finishes it off. The apartment isn't his. Or hers, for that matter. But he thought it would be fun. To sneak in, hang out,…
Today in Are You Fucking Kidding Me, there's a new scent coinciding with the release of Smurfs 2. It is a SMURFUME. The target audience? Children between the ages of 5 and 10. FIVE.
Did you know that nearly 1400 fragrances were launched in 2012? Do we really need that many new artificial scents added to a market already saturated in stink? It's ridiculous and also kind of gross. As a comment on that, Dutch artists Lernert and Sander have collected samples of those fragrances and combined them to…
If the big, bad EU lawmakers in Brussels — glutted with government-issued waffles and chocolate — have their way, perfumed Europeans might have to wait until they swaddle themselves in a blanket of tree moss during a jaunt in the Dolomites before they realize that they have skin-scourging allergy to tree moss. That's…
