More limited edition collector fragrance bottles, with the usual disclaimers: in most of these cases, the juice is unchanged, just the bottle is “special” (or not, as the case may be), and some of these may not be available in the US. Today’s post includes solid perfume compacts and jewelry from Estee Lauder, collector bottles from Zadig et Voltaire, and a new collector case for Thierry Mugler Angel.
From Estee Lauder’s latest collection of limited edition solid perfume compacts by luxury jewelry designer Monica Rich Kosann, the Beautiful Sea Goddess Perfume Compact. $250 at Neiman Marcus…
Earlier this month, Marie Claire did a listicle on 10 Cheap Perfumes Beauty Insiders Love. I have no real objection to their list1 other than the inclusion of a $76 perfume and an $82 body oil — beauty insiders apparently have a different definition of “cheap” than I do, possibly because they don’t have to fork over cash for their beauty products — but I did note on Twitter that I did not love any of their picks. I’ll also add that none of their 10 show up very often in our daily scent of the day polls. So, here is a list of my own. I couldn’t make myself narrow down to fewer than 11, and of course I’ve cheated even more by adding alternatives. As always, do include your own picks in the comments!
Marie Claire included the old standby 4711. I know some of you probably love 4711, and I can’t scoff at it — it’s possibly one of the better fragrances on their list. Still, my old-school drugstore choice would be the venerable spicy carnation, Old Spice…

Is it summer yet? My most-used Bronze Goddess product is actually not the spray fragrance, but the fantastic (and highly-scented) Whipped Body Creme, introduced in 2014. This year, they've added a Body Salt Scrub ("This luxurious scrub with mineral-rich salt crystals gently smooths and exfoliates for sensual, luminous skin. Decadent oils help soften and nourish with the seductive, sun-kissed Bronze Goddess Eau Fraîche fragrance.") $55. I am tempted. If anyone has tried it already, do comment!
