One Tree Hill Grows Up, Scents-ually Speaking

Posted by Anonymous on Thu, 04/05/2012 - 6:49 PM

It may have been tough for some of you One Tree Hill finatics to say goodbye to the gang after a nine season show! But while some of you were thinking about the end of the show, the finale, and what not...I sit here thinking, what fragrance may they have worn 9 years a go on set...and what they may be wearing today. 

Let's take a step back, down memory lane and have fun with my favorite characters, Brooke Davis (played by Sophia Bush) and Nathan Scott (played by James Lafferty).

In my opinion, Brooke has grown the most over the course of the nine series. At the beginning, she was the seductive, crazy girl who loved to party and didn't have a care in the world. Now, look at her 8 seasons later as a mother and a wife, owning her own, not to mention super successful business, and I love that she always finds a way to follow her instinct with her heart. I think, she may have worn Escada Sexy Graffiti perfume, because, well she had that careless attitude, and lived her life minute by minute. Nowadays, I'd love to think she wears Versace's Bright Crystal perfume

Now, Nathan...he made himself out to be quite the athlete, and I can't imagine him wearing anything but something like the NBA Knicks cologne by Air Val International. Over the season's series, he had obtained many obstacles and struggled, I feel he still remained strong even through his accident, his annoying father, alchoholic mom, and the list goes on and on. I'd like to think that he uses Escape by Calvin Klein, or even CK Free by Calvin Klein. They say scent is the most powerful sense, and with what's going on in this characters life, he needs a good escape and to free his mind. 

Who were your fave One Tree Hill characters and what fragrances do you think they used?

Bizarre Beauty: A Pill To Turn Sweat into Perfume

Posted by Anonymous on Fri, 03/16/2012 - 2:28 PM

Earlier this week, we asked our Facebook fans if they would take a pill that turns sweat into perfume. 88% of the fans said! and 12% said YES!

This is surely a bizarre beauty 'technology' to look forward to in the near future, but for now, it has our attention and we just had to share!
Early this week, during one of our company meetings, the topic of a new pill that turns sweat into perfume is now in research mode and this really stirred things up for us! Really, how bizarre!

Let's break it down...a pill, to swallow before you head out on a hot day or to pump some iron at the gym, to have your sweat smell like your favorite designer fragrance or floral scent. 

Amazing! Strange! And brings up lots of questions. How does the pill work exactly? How do you choose a scent? What does it do to your body internally? Is it safe? Does the pill leave a taste in your mouth before swallowing? 
We don't know, and we'll just have to wait to find out more. What we do know is that the swallowable parfum is being developed by an artist based in the Netherlands and was inspired by computer engineer Ray Kurzweil, who wrote lots of books on how manchines can, and will shape the future.

From what we understand, the future of beauty may be in pill form, and that is just...bizarre beauty. From sunscreen protection through a pill, and anti-grey supplements, maybe this parfum pill will be the next technologic beauty advancement.

Would you take this pill?
