A million bucks for whale vomit?

It could be upchuck for megabucks! It's called Ambergris or floating gold. Ambergris, is the vomit of the sperm whale, it comes out almost clear and turns darker over time. It is a very rare substance and could fetch a thousand dollars a pound. The perfume industry covets this natural form of perfume ingredient largely because of it's rarity and because most manufacturers have switched to synthetic versions. If you are strolling the beach and should happend to trip over some you should be abe to find a buyer in the perfume industry no problem. Time to go surfing!
All we can say is good luck findin' some upchuck

Celebrity Fragrances. Our noses feel the pain.

As much as we all love our celebrities and have our favorites, one must stop and wonder… How many more celebrities will come up with their designer fragrance?

Well, let’s just explore the possibilities. Say, we have the newest, hottest fragrance by Sylvester Stallone, Rocky… a punch of this sexy eau de cologne will knock every woman out and you won’t even have to count to 10. Rambo for Him, a powerful cologne that is sure to blow you away, literally! Or, how about the latest perfume by the Octomom...it comes in eight great fragrances.

Now, I’ll have to admit that I get excited about all of the new fragrances out there. It keeps me busy and in business. It’s also great to have the variety so we all smell different – remember those days when there were just a few popular fragrances that everyone wore, at the same time? But, who else will be making the jump into the celebrity fragrance scene? Any ideas? Let us know…

Perfume and cologne: Weapons of Mass Seduction.

With hundreds of new fragrances released every year, perfume and cologne has traditionally been marketed as a way to catch the attention of the opposite sex… Advertising focuses on how atractive you’ll be if you wear the latest perfume by a famous designer, or better, your favorite celebrity.

Now, let’s think about this concept for a minute – yes, the sense of smell is the most powerful of all senses, and fragrances play a roll in stimulating the brain. But is it that the fragrance makes us confident? Is it that your mindset is influenced by the fact that you are wearing a “seductive fragrance”? Sex sells, and is selling lots of perfume and cologne. We have moved from a splash of clean and fresh scent to a spray of seduction. No more talk about how wonderful you will smell.

Now it’s all about how many members of the opposite sex will fall to your feet because of how you smell. Perfume and cologne is about creating an extension of your appearance – one that is only perceived by anyone within an arms reach from you. The fragrance becomes you as it mixes with your body chemistry to create a signature scent that is uniquely yours, and one that some members of the opposite sex will find attractive. However, if you are thinking about knocking every prospect down to their knees because of the fragrance you’re wearing, maybe you need to spend your money wisely!

I say spray it...don't say it!

Fragrance sensitivity is on the rise. Just recently In the Wallingford school system of Connecticut, use of cologne and perfume is prevalent among the students. And why not? After all teens don't shower much and they need to put on those body deodorants to attract the opposite sex...just like the commercials say they do. In Minneapolis, the overuse of products like Axe and Tag in school hallways has gotten to the point that the school district has seen a need for a policy addressing the scents.
The primary concern is that the strong scent would trigger headaches and, for asthmatics, heighten the risk of a respiratory attack., rather than the women attacking the guys as advertised. In the workplace that issue seems to be a topic of discussion. a person emitting a strong, foul scent, whether from perfume or poor hygiene, can often negatively affect the work environment around them. Jacqueline Whitmore, a Polk County native and author of "Business Class: Etiquette Essentials for Success at Work," said it is perfectly acceptable to address a co-worker who wears too much perfume, particularly if others may have a sensitivity to it. Whitmore says the perfume offender will likely understand, since perfume sensitivity is a common problem.
I know that at Scentiments.com we encourage the use of fragrances at work. Wearing fragrance is an expression of one's self, so the determination of your odor and the effects around you must be considered.
We say express yourself until someone complains.

Scentiments on TV!!

If you live in Philadelphia you had the pleasure of watching an informative segment on deals that can be found at Scentiments.com. The interview featured our own CEO, Howard Wyner. He flew in for the day to get interviewed. Flying out at 5am that morning he arrived in Philadelphia to do the interview, grab a Philly cheese steak and escape an ice storm. Amy Buckman of WPVI TV (abc) did the news story. You can see the story about discount perfume. You can read the story below.

By Amy Buckman
February 9, 2009 (WPVI) -- Scentiments.com is a discount perfume website that can save you big bucks

All of Scentiments.com's products sell for less than department store prices.
But their best deals are on testers -- the bottles that manufacturers make for spritzing at cosmetic counters.
These aren't little samples. They're full-size bottles of fragrance. The big difference is the packaging. Some come in plain brown boxes, or bubble wrap or no packaging at all. Others may not have fancy caps.
Sometimes it's hard to distinguish the testers from the regular bottles.
Except when it comes to price. The testers all cost 10 to 50% percent less.
For example, a 4.2-ounce bottle of Curve Kicks retails for about $50. Scentiments sells it for $22. But the tester bottle is just $12.
The discounts aren't as deep on the more exclusive 3.4-ounce Dolce and Gabanna eau de toilette, but there's still a savings. It retails for about $80. Scentiments sells it for $68. And the tester is just $60.
Another example, the 3.3-ounce bottle of Red Door, retails for about $55, it's $24 on the website, and just $19 for the tester.
Shipping is $5.99 for the first five items, but it's free if you order more than $75.
The site doesn't have testers for all of its scents, and they do sell out quickly when they're available.
But if you can snatch one you'll definitely enjoy the sweet smell of savings.
