What Inspires FragranceNet.com employees...

Posted by Anonymous on Thu, 03/22/2012 - 7:06 PM

Last week, I was surfin' the web and came across an article about how Bobbi Brown got her best idea riding on the back of a camel in the middle of the dessert. This seemed to humor me and at the same time gave me the idea to ask my fellow co-workers, "Where do you get your best ideas?" So I went ahead and sent out a mass email to the entire company in hopes of a response that can top Bobbi Brown's.

So...where do FragranceNet.com employees get their best ideas?

 Patti, Senior Business Development “I get my best ideas while working out! It’s the only time of the day when I am alone and can find time for reflection.”

Brenda, Buyer “During my morning runs. It’s quiet and peaceful and I can let my mind wander.”

Barbara C., Buyer “I do my best thinking, like many, in the morning shower. “

Nick , Web Developer “I get my best ideas when I smoke cigarettes. Each one is a break from reality and allows me to view aspects of my life from a standpoint that is not affected by the common factors that skew perception.”

Barbara P, Chief Technology Officer “Driving in my car to and from work—it’s the 200 minutes or so a week that I am guaranteed to be alone, and can crawl my internal thoughts uninterrupted (except by the occasional bad driver of course.)”

Carole , Creative Director "Ideas come to me when I am not thinking about the problem. Every night I doodle in a sketchbook. My mind wanders and the unexpressed subconscious comes out in ideas on the page."

Assunta, Social Media Coordinator "I guess I get my best ideas while surfing the web, as a result, this very blog post you are reading right here!"




The Future of Beauty

Posted by Anonymous on Wed, 03/21/2012 - 3:18 PM

Is the future of beauty to cover everything up? If you follow beauty, you most likely follow fashion, yes? And you most likely know that Alexander McQueen has this futuristic feel to all of his collections. From the 'claw' pump to the latest Fall/Winter 2012 collection featuring facial visors, does the future of beauty mean covering it all up?

You may be wondering, what the heck is a face visor...well, see for yourself in the video below of Alexander McQueen's latest womenswear fashion show, his Fall/Winter 2012 collection here.

As you can see, you don't see much of the model's face...I'm sure this look featuring a semi-transparent visor over the eyes was quite a change, and certainly a challenge for the makeup artist.That being said, they seemed to stick to this very futuristic feel, with beautiful ivory skin and a whitish-blonde wig. 

So now I sit and ponder, how could we take away from this show and put some trends from runway to everyday... I think I'll pass!

March Madness: The FragranceNet.com Way

Posted by Anonymous on Tue, 03/20/2012 - 1:46 PM

March Madness to you may interpret itself differently from me to you to someone else. One may think of March Madness as the crazy compeition of college basketball, getting down to the knitty gritty of it all to the final teams. However, for me, March Madness is a way for me to 'celebrate' Caear's fragrances.

You may wonder...what the...? How so?

Ok, well here is my concept. In the month of March, the 15th day of March is well known as the Ides of March, also known for the day Julius Caesar was killed. 

In honor of Julius Caesar, I decided to pull the Caesar fragrances and do a little review of what's so great about each!

  • Caesars by Caesar's World for men -- Introduced in 1988, this mens cologne has notes of wood, moss, oak, citrus and sandalwood. This scent is an oldie but a goodie, enough said!
  • Caesars by Caesar's World for women -- Also introduced in 1988, this womens fragrance has notes of range flower, rose, musk and sandalwood. The fragrance is very mod and romantic. It's been often said that once a woman wears this cologne, she forever wears it.
  • Caesars Goddess perfume -- The perfect scent for spring, and will make you smell..well, like a goddess!
  • Caesars Ferentina perfume -- This warm, floral scebt combines orange flower and black currant with jasmine. Light spices and musk complete the tones. Perfect for a night out!

  • Have you heard of Caesar's fragrances? Do you own one yourself?
