smith’s rosebud salve

http://i33.tinypic.com/2nurmm1.jpg

have you tried smith’s rosebud salve? i got a tin for my birthday – it smells like roses and flying dreams and puppies and baby powder, not to mention how radical it makes your lips feel

it was formulated in 1892 and contains a secret blend of essential oils & cottonseed oil in a special petrolatum base. an all purpose skin preparation that’s good for relieving chapped lips & skin, diaper rash, blemishes, detergent burns, rough cuticles & softening rough hands.

you can pick it up for R99 at any Melissa’s (it’s really worth it as it lasts forever, i haven’t even made a dent in mine – cute tin is a bonus.) definitely beats 8 hour cream by a mile. get some! and if you’re a dude: get some for your girlfriend, she’ll love you (more).

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.
