Eternity for Women Smells Like Pure Evil
Hashtag not-so-humblebrag alert! This week, I talk about the child-like excitement of winning a contest that FragranceNet hosted, scoring YSL Libre and Maison Margiela's Jazz Club for a steal, and the perfume that knocked Victoria's Secret Rapture out of its spot as the only fragrance I will ever say is objectively bad (spoiler alert: it's in the title). I also review Tenue de Soirée by Annick Goutal, a new startup that aims to take the pretentiousness out of buying fragrance, and a charming op-ed about Flower by Kenzo.  Mentioned in this Episode: Tenue de Soirée (Goutal Paris): https://www.goutalparis.com/collections/tenue-de-soiree/products/tenue-de-soiree-eau-de-parfum?variant=32590048886830 Fragrance startup Snif won’t tell you what their perfumes smell like.

Who the F*** is David Dobrik?
This week, I am asking the tough questions: why didn't I notice the Gucci Guilty my husband wore on our outing the other night? Why does Fragrantica's website look like it was designed by a hyperactive child in 1997? Who the f*** is David Dobrik?
