Daily Fragrance: Atelier Cologne Rose Anonyme. Rose Anonyme is the perfume that convinced me to really start paying attention to Atelier Cologne. Dishy perfumer Jerome Epinette took one of the most common note combinations of the last decade (rose and patchouli) and made a neon rose and hallucinogenic strawberry scent that smells anything but average.

Daily Beauty: L’Oreal Paris Voluminous Miss Manga Mascara. Oh, like you could resist a mascara named “Miss Manga”. The formula is way too clumpy for me personally (my usual mascara is CoverGirl Clump Crusher), but it’s ideal for the spiky anime lash look. Nouveau Cheap has an excellent review.

Daily Book: Sophie Dahl’s The Man With The Dancing Eyes. $7.50 at The Strand! Sophie Dahl is Roald Dahl’s granddaughter, and his influence is obvious in her charming, friendly writing. Dancing Eyes is a short, lovely story about the New York adventures of a young woman and her “loyal mongrel” Froggy. I like Sophie Dahl’s writing so much that I own both of her cookbooks despite not caring much for her recipes (very British, mostly vegetarian).
