Edible perfume.. Yep, you heard!


What kind of deodorant do you use? Roll on? Spray? A balm? 

FORGET THAT! – Now you can swallow a sweet and it will keep you smelling fresh for up to SIX hours! 

Created by an American company ‘Beneo’ with help from Bulgarian confectioner Alpi – this is unfortunately not available in the UK – but i really wish it was – just to experiment – EVEN at $10 a pop!

It may be more expensive than a can of Sure, but you can’t EAT that can you!

Oh and it’s sugar-free – EVEN BETTER!

I wonder what would happen if you ate too many? 

What do you think?

E-scent-ually slimming..?

What’s your diet secret?

We’ve had slimming trainers, books that make you thin and ‘skinny patches’.

Well, here we go again!

France have beaten the rest of the world to it and designed their very own product that promises to suppress appetite and help you lose weight, AND it has a 6000 person waiting list in the UK!

‘What is it?!’ You ask with pure anticipation, that’s if your excitable eyes haven’t already skipped down the page to sneak the answer first.

It’s perfume of course!

The world’s ‘first weight loss fragrance’ is designed to slim with pleasure and is based on ‘extensive aroma-therapeutic research’ – so, well, it must work!

So how does it suppress your appetite?

Does it smell like a bin?

Surprisingly, no. 

The instructions are to spray it generously in the morning and re-apply when you feel the need to snack and any cravings occur. It focuses on a ‘pleasurable experience’ rather than attach itself to the negative connotations of being hungry. The ‘slimming complex’ formulated with caffeine, carnitine and spirulina extract activates the two key enzymes directly involved in lipolysis (or in normal-speak: fat degradation).

There are top notes of bergamot, mandarin and grapefruit – which obviously combine to create a very fruity and fresh scent. [Perhaps it’s smells so sweet it puts you off anything, ever.?]

It’s called Prends Moi and if you want it, like I said, you’ll have to get in line behind the 6,000 optimistic people of the UK. It is £29.99 and can be found in The Fragrance Shop. So, what are you waiting for?

Results have shown that 75% of people it was tested on ‘felt the perfume limited the need to snack’, while 73% ‘felt a feeling of pleasure’.

So, it must be right… right?

Well, until we get a whiff of it for ourselves, we’ll never know.

What do you think?

50 Shades of Grey: The stuff that really makes you happy

While I recognise you might have clicked on this for a review of the book that spread faster than a cold in an office; you’re sadly mistaken. However, this is the stuff that creates genuine screams and squeals, real excitement and a feeling of pure happiness; why I’m talking about makeup of course.

 But in true dedication to the cheeky literature by E. L. James, I’ve chosen items from the amazing www.thelondonperfumecompany.com website and I’m sharing the real pieces of Grey you want to experience.

 Just look!

So there’s my must-have shades of grey. Not quite 50, but I reckon 10 is enough to keep you satisfied.

I love www.thelondonperfumecompany.com because 99.9% of the products are always cheaper than what’s on the high-street. Why would I leave the comfort of my own home to get something double the price when I can get bargains at the click of my finger!? Their products are always so professional (and their delivery is soooo fast) so I never have to wait long!

The Perfume Bottle: Stash or Trash?

Perfume! Whether sweet, woody, fruity or musky – everyone has a favourite. People today use perfumes like an accessory. You’ve got your hair done; clothes smart and jewellery present… what tops it off? A good squirt of your favourite fragrance of course!

Perfume has become ‘wearable art’ – just like clothes and jewellery – it takes careful consideration to choose the perfect product.

So with this in mind I was clearing out my apartment as I had way too much clutter for my own good. Out went the stacks of magazines that were piled so high they were taller than my 2 year old nephew and out went the makeup cases that have been empty for years (but because they cost me a small fortune I couldn’t bear to dispose of them). Anyway slight tangent but it brings me to my question…

Have you ever kept hold of your old perfume even though it’s run out simply because the bottle is so beautiful?

Yep, me too..

It got me thinking as to just how many people took part in, what can only be described as, ‘unnecessary hoarding’ .. and I was pleasantly surprised that it’s not a totally crazy thing to do.

So here are a few bottles that I fell in love with and not only would keep if they were mine, but I want them anyway! Enjoy.
