Perfume and Other Scents

Studio Girl Cosmetics


Original ad here.

Everyone knows Avon and Mary Kay. But few recall "Studio Girl Cosmetics," although they endured for decades.

Here's a site dedicated to their memory, maintained by a descendant of the founder.

What I find most intriguing is that they appeared to have had a sideline of vinyl albums as well. Music to paint your face by?

Scratch ‘n’ Sniff Holy Card

Back in 2009, I posted about The Pope's Cologne, a fragrance supposedly identical to that worn by Pope Pius IX. But I failed to mention what is perhaps the cologne's most interesting feature. It comes with a scratch 'n' sniff holy card. So if you ever need a little papal pick-me-up, just scratch the card and inhale the scent of Pope Pius.

Smells Like Harvey Comics

Now that DreamWorks has acquired the rights to the Harvey Comics characters, surely they will zealously protect properties such as Little Dot and issue a lawsuit against such blatant ripoffs as Dot Perfume.
