TRUTH OR DARE – MADONNA’S NEW FRAGRANCE

Posted by 03.20.12

Who would have guessed that for her very first fragrance Madonna, queen of the extreme, would have taken the traditional route? Traditional yet bold would be my way of describing Truth of Dare, the scent she will be launching next month in partnership with Coty.

Described as a robust signature white floral, Truth or Dare starts with classic gardenia and tuberose notes and reinvents them to create a contemporary and sexy fragrance.

GINGERLY SPEAKING

Posted by 11.01.11

With the aroma of gingerbread men in the air, now is a good time to round up some beauty products made with this lovely smelling plant.

They can be steeped in boiling water to make ginger tea – a common folk remedy for colds – as well as ginger ale and ginger beer for stomach settlers. Because of its aromatic properties, ginger is found in a variety of fragrant and delightful beauty products like those listed below.

OLIVE OIL – NATURE AND BEAUTY’S GOLD

Posted by 10.11.11

Years ago, when I was a single mom and too poor to buy a traditional hot oil hair treatment, I warmed some olive oil in a saucepan and poured it over my head. Olive oil has been used for thousands of years for a variety of purposes. Ancient Greeks not only cooked with it, they knew of its healing and beautifying properties.

To make the oil – called nature’s gold – olives are gathered and cleaned, then washed to remove pesticides and ground into paste. The paste is heated and the oil is separated from the water in a centrifuge and stored for use in cooking or commercial products. Here’s a roundup of beauty items made with this all-natural product.
