Serge Lutens Santal Majascule. This perfume isn’t getting enough love! By far the most accessible and attractive Lutens. The chocolate note is so beautiful.
Jo Malone Red Roses. Because it’s almost Valentine’s Day, and if you don’t wear a rose perfume on Valentine’s Day then the terrorists win.
Hermes Voyage. Parfumieren and Australian Perfume Junkies both recently did really evocative reviews of Voyage, prompting me to break out my adorable mini from Sniffapalooza. It also gives me the perfect excuse to break out my Star Trek: Voyager jokes! (Said “jokes” mostly consist of making fun of Ensign Harry Kim’s dating life. OR LACK THEREOF! OHHHHHHHH! This joke is a lot funnier if you watch Star Trek: Voyager!)
Taupe Eye Shadows. I haven’t owned an eye shadow since the powder blue monstrosity I wore for my bat mitzvah. (IT MATCHED MY DRESS OKAY) But it turns out that taupe is actually hella flattering on ladies with bizarre Mediterranean coloring! Pictured are Laura Mercier Sugar Frost, Urban Decay YDK, Benefit Birthday Suit, and Dior Beige Print.
Lush Charity Pot. The perfect moisturizer. For $5.95, you get an impossibly rich body lotion (I use it as a facial moisturizer because I am a rebel, and my face has never been clearer) and the satisfaction of knowing that 100% of the selling price goes to Lush’s charitable partners. Charity Pot is also vegan and is not tested on animals. I feel really good about this product, y’all.
Tao Lin’s poetry. My favorite so far is his “February”, which begins: “At the bank I felt like I was in Super Mario World.” There should be more poems about video games, I think.
