NOT A DINER BATHROOM: Rose

20 Mar

I think rose scented things are simply divine. Wait, no, let me rephrase that: GOOD rose smelling things rock. Bad rose smells like the air refreshers in Greek diner bathrooms or old people houses. I don’t like “dainty” rose smells either…especially those packaged to look like it came from some English something like a garden or the Queen Mum herself. Nah. I like a heavy, full bodied, sexy rose.

This smell in particular:

Anthropologie had the candle in stock for like a nanosecond in 2009. Unless you’re in Thailand, this candle is not the easiest thing to get which blows (ged it?)

That candle really did a number on me because now I can’t pass anything labeled “rose” without sticking my big nose into it and huffing. Although I most likely will never find anything that comes remotely close to that gorgeous candle (my first high), here’s some other nice smelly things:

Heritage Store has a lot of rose stuff. They even sell a gallon of rose water for 86 bucks. Imagine that! But back to the normal people products.

Not only can you use this spritz

Rose Petals Rosewater 4 oz  w/atomizer

as a hair/body/pet/home/whatever refresher (which I do) but you can also use it as a salad spritzer! The label says so! The smell is light but has body. When I haven’t showered I splash this stuff on because it makes me “feel clean” and can pH any bad stench lingering in my hair up up and away. When I do shower, I slather this afterwards:

Rose Aura Glow 8 oz

I use it for everything. As a makeup remover, as a moisturizer, to pat my frizzies down. I just haven’t tried it as an alternative oil base for salad dressings.

Another oil that smells a bit more “mature” (in a good way!) and works just as well is Weleda’s Wild Rose Body Oil.

This Claus Porto soap

is a hefty chunk of delicious, and the packaging is gorgeous. I haven’t gotten my ravaged hands on the candle version yet but I bet it smells just as lovely as the soap.

Speaking about soap and packaging, shout out to Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soap, the Rose Edition.

Rose Liquid Soap - 16 oz.

This is what I actually shower with before I slather on the Aura Glow potion. (You all know about the wacky writing on the label, but this shit can really be used in 18 million different ways. Back when I was a broke college kid and I ran out of detergent, I would use this. The gross dryer smell totally killed it so my undies never smelled fresh as a rose though.)

Moving right along to make up, the only one I can think of at the moment isYSL mascara. I have a feral-like-crazy love to/for these glob sticks. It is da best in the world. It knocks mascara out of the park. Not only does it smell great (like…dare I say…roses?) it also makes your lashes look 1000000000000000x better. Seriously. You’ll get laid wearing this.

And now, the most perfect rose base perfume I have huffed. The one, the only

STELLLAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!

I have found that this stuff works like freaking catnip, for either gender. I was turned on to it after my friend Sammy wore it. Once, this guy I was seeing thought that my Chanel Mademoiselle smelled too much “like Macy’s” and so the next day I tested this spritz to only have him attached to my neck. To test this theory I have held it under unsuspecting guy friends’ noses, moving it around like a witch with her potion. 5/5 of my victims perked up and asked “what is that??? let me sniff it again!” This is good stuff.

So this is just a sample list of some of my favorite rose scented stuff. Holler down below if you know of any others!


 

Note:

Although I may jokingly refer to huffing here, huffing is not a good thing and can be very dangerous to your health!! DUH!!! Not only can you get bumps all along your nose and mouth (TRUE STORY, saw it on Criminal Minds so there) but you can also end up looking like this guy)
