parisienne is a the latest perfume by YSL, and they have enlisted some well known stylish people (joanna goddard amongst them) to blog for them:

YSL is sending five renowned bloggers on a journey around the country to discover and reveal their very own PARISIENNE experiences in New York City, Miami, Chicago, San Francisco and Los Angeles. YSL has chosen an ensemble of women with passions for beauty, art, design, music, fashion and food to create a travel diary of their trip. Stay tuned here to read articles, see photos and follow the women on their journey.

i like the concept because there’s isn’t heavy product placement in the stories (which would have ultimately made the bloggers look like sell-outs and the ‘experience’ a bit fake).

(ps: one of my favourite perfumes that i use often is YSL elle – so if parisienne is even vaguely similar, it’s probably amazing.  i am very partial to darker/rich scents like viktor & rolf’s flowerbomb, kate moss’ fragrance etc)

the smell of ad-venture

i caught an old jonathon ross interview of ewan mcgregor this weekend (swoon), but was astounded to see that he had attached his name to a manly man fragrance – and actually went as far as making this ridiculously cheesy advert for it:

now, i love ewan mcgregor and i love bikers & people who go on adventures AND i love men who smell nice and wear leather jackets, but…. come on! super cheese. though i must admit i watched the ad a couple of times (i’m only a woman)

ewan-davidoff

he does look pretty cool though, eh? yes the scarf is a bit gay… plus, what kind of biker wears cologne?

anyway, invariably i found this, which made me feel better:

the scent of adventure in the air…. haha.
