Roses de Chloe, A rose by any other name

Roses de Chloe Roses de Chloe, A rose by any other name

What’s in a name? that which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet;

Shakespeare was right. Give the rose any other name and it would smell just as sweet, just as lovely and inspirational. In fact, so inspirational, the fragrance houses keep producing all kinds of beautifully consuming scents, in search for the perfect bottle of rosy liquid charm. Bvlgari did it, with the romantic and sugary Rose Essentielle, adored by women around the globe. Then Valentino, experienced in rocky princesses, honored us with the edgy Rock ’n Rose, making young girls everywhere fight for the last one in the store. And then came Tom Ford with the sexy Café Rose and swept us all off our feet.

So do roses ever go out of style? The perfume masters say no, and we couldn’t agree more. And there are so many different roses around the world, it’s only natural to have so many fragrances.

But then, among all sweet scents, all signature bottles, rises Roses de Chloé, a fragrance so special, it personifies the uniqueness of every woman. An Ode to Roses, if you will. Leave it to the Chloé house to speak to the rose and turn it into something we can be proud to wear. To reveal every secret the rose can hold. And to turn it into a perfume so magical, it matches the rest of Chloé’s elegant variations.

The mastery of Michel Almairac and Mylène Alran brings us this airy, luminous and subtle scent, to remind us of a thousand petals, the sensation of bergamot, gradually joined by a heart of damascene rose essence, modernized with a magnolia accord. And on the skin, a trail of white musk and amber, the signature of the Chloé house.

And because by now, all our feminine sensations are awakened, we can enjoy the cherry on top, which is the beautiful silhouette of the iconic Eau de Parfum by Chloé, the luxury glass bottle, crowned with a silver top and a transparent cap. And all of it enlaced with a blush pink ribbon.

We’re batting our eye-lashes here.

Look how they managed to capture everything Roses de Chloé represents with this beautiful, hypnotic film. Titled The Blowing Roses, it expresses the delicate and feminine side of the Chloé woman through the blooming roses metaphor. Each woman represents a petal, dancing gracefully with the wind’s breeze. As the flowers bloom, the petals multiply and spread to create a kaleidoscope of roses.

Tweet this Giveaway | #Lavender & Oil, @TraderJoes2

Lavender Oil Tweet this Giveaway | #Lavender & Oil, @TraderJoes2 So, I’m a fan of signature scents. I recently discovered these Lavender dryer bags at Trader Joes and use them to create lavender oils for the bath and to put on the skin to layer under designer scents. Lavender is a great deodorant and it’s works well with most notes. I typically steep the lavender in oil and add alcohol later. To flex my crafty muscles and show off my fragrance making skills a bit, I’ve decided to giveaway this jar of Lavender oil, steeped right here at my POSHGLAMorous desk. Lavender can be used for  a number of purposes:

  • Can be put in your lingerie draw as a sachet

  • Can be placed in the dryer for 5-10 cycles

  • Natural month repellant

  • Can be vacuumed up on the floor as a room fragrance

Along with this custom fragrance oil, I’m giving away some lavender sachets. If interested, please do the following:

Yes, I said ash…not to mention paste, incase you didn’t notice, those harsh winter months did a doozie on your patootie and if you pay attention to your skin’s cycles you will notice that most of us have a need to shed some extra cells now and again for the new, vibrant skinny skin to shine through.

There’s more to life than lackluster dermis and if you are looking for a high-quality, no scratch exfoliante, look no further. Cura-C is packed with anti-oxidants and plenty of granular opportunities to buff it smoothe, repair and revitalize your skin. If you are more for a purifying sea-salt jack a Sali Esfoliante into your shower and draw out impurities with Olive & Grape Seed Oils and Pumice. Either you choose, don’t snooze you may want to find those dry spots before your hottie does…

Chris Collins Exclusive: The Categories Men Put Women In, and How You Can Move Between

chris collins Chris Collins Exclusive: The Categories Men Put Women In, and How You Can Move Between

There is a notion that when a man meets a woman, he can immediately put her in a category where he sees that woman playing a role in is life. And I’m here to tell you it’s true….to a certain extent. Now this may seem a bit harsh, but as a man I don’t think we purposely do this. Wait, let me take that back, we completely know that we’re doing when we do this. I just think this is the only way men can make sense out of their relationships with the very intricate and complex, yet magnificent and precious treasure that a woman is. Now that I’ve buttered you up, here’s how it goes.

There are four main categories that men place women in upon meeting them. There is the Girlfriend, the Sex Partner, the Best Friend, and last but not least the once in lifetime, love at first site, myth I’ve only read about in books or seen in movies but I think is completely probable…..the Wife. Now I’m sure there are thousands of sub-categories within the four I’ve mentioned, but to keep this as simple as possible we’ll just stick with these. Oh and there’s another point I need to make.  I’m assuming that the men I’m speaking about are single. If a man is married or in a relationship, well let’s just say that that’s a whole other fish to fry. This as you know can get extremely complicated.

Men are very animalistic in nature. Think of them as animals in the wild. If they see something that attracts them, they either want to kill it and eat it, or love it. Let’s just call this natural selection. Now unless this guy is a cannibal or a nut case, he will in most cases want to love it.  This brings me to my first category, the Sex Partner. Man and woman were created for each other for a sole purpose, and that is to mate and reproduce. And trust me when a man sees a woman from across the room or at a bar and says to himself, wow she’s hot, his headmost instinct is to grab her, rip her clothes off and mate. It could be her beauty, her smile, her style, etc. But whatever it is, that initial allure has sex written all over it. So even before you meet, before you say single word to each other, you have already been categorized as a sex partner.

Now at some point he will muster up the courage to come and talk to you about his plan to have sex with you until you both pass out from exhaustion. And at this point, here is where the real game begins. Within moments he will know if you will stay in that category of you being his sex partner for a little while. Or will there be something that happens during your interaction that suddenly moves you into another? That depends. It will be the difference between him saying, “So do you want to come to my place for a drink tonight” or, “can I have your number so I can take you to lunch tomorrow”. Her are the different scenarios that can ensue.

So now you meet, and he sees that you are just like him, maybe too much like him and maybe he wasn’t as into you as much as he thought he would be. He realizes you both love sports, cats, watching documentaries about veganism or whatever. You laugh and joke all night wondering how the time passed. And all of a sudden he forgets about how bad he wanted to jump your bones, and realizes how cool you are. All he wants to do is hang out with you, grab a beer or do something together that you both have in common. You my dear have now been put in the category of a Best Friend. But hold on, before we go any further. I have a theory about men and women being “best friends”. If one or both of the participants in this friendship is attractive, this friendship will never work. Especially since you two met initially through that attraction. It will always end up one day with one of you crying and confessing how you always loved the other person for years and couldn’t hold it in anymore. Or after a fun night of drinking a laugh turns into a kiss and you both wake up the next morning in bed wondering what the hell just happened. In that case either the friendship ends or you slip effortlessly into the category of either the sex partner, the girlfriend and maybe even one day his wife!! That’ll be a funny story for a wedding speech.

Ok, back the point. Let’s rewind a bit and talk about that initial interaction again. So now when you meet, you blow him away with your wit and your charm. He realizes you are smart and funny with good values, great career, etc. Every box on his continuously changing punch list is checked. This makes you even more beautiful than he thought. He sees, that at least from your initial meeting that you are the girl that he’s been waiting to meet in is unsuccessful quest for companionship. You are now in the category of Girl Friend.  Your goin home to momma!!

And last but not least, the category of Wife. As legend has it, there are some encounters that are Godly and upon meeting a woman you know in that second that she is your wife. I’ve never experienced this yet, but I’m assuming that this is what it would feel like. “When I meet you everything in the room disappears. There is a glow around you, and my heart feels like it’s going to beat out of my chest. Every word you say, sounds like a symphony of Mozart. I look into your eyes and I see your soul. I feel you. You ask, “why are you staring at me like that”, and I’m thinking because all I can do is imagine you playing with our children in our yard. I’m already checking the ring of  your first name with my last. I completely lose time. I’ve known you all my life. You are my Wife”. Wow, what an image!

One very important thing to keep in mind, is that it is very easy to slip in and out and back and forth between these categories. What you imagined in the beginning may not be. Life is funny in the way things turn out sometime. The woman you believed to be your wife may end up being the girlfriend you let get away. Or the sex partner you imagined became the best friend because the your sexual connection was terrible. But trust me, they do exist. You just never know which one you will start or where you will ultimately end up.
