TV in a Bottle

We all have our favorite TV shows. Admit it, sometimes we even dress like our favorite characters or sport their haircuts (remember Charlie's Angels' feathers and the "Rachel"?). But did it ever occur to you that you might want to smell like your favorite TV show? I don't mean smell like a celebrity - celeb scents are a well-discussed topic - I mean scents inspired by the show itself. Read on.

Although this trend is reaching never-before-seen proportions, it seems to have begun in the 80s, with Dynasty. Oh yes - the hit show marketed a fragrance called Forever Krystal for women, based on the the character played by Linda Evans. Carrington channeled the sexy Blake Carrington, played by John Forsythe. You can still obtain bottles of these decades-old scents!

Another soap opera followed the trend - with the launch of several scents from All My Children. Enchantment perfume promises you can "be a part of the glamorous life and join the story." Their second fragrance launch was Fusion, a spirited and spontaneous fruity floral. Both were developed and launched as part of the show's storyline!

In February, Apothia launched a fragrance simply called "L" which is inspired by Showtime's hit drama about lesbians living in L.A., The L Word. The development process included getting input from 7,500 L Word fans who submitted surveys describing what they would like in the fragrance. According to PlanetOut, The "L Word" perfume is billed as embodying the show's essence, with a scent that is "deeply feminine and sexy while exuding a very confident and powerful edginess and independence."

American Idol fans can feel part of the drama by spritzing on American Idol Moments for women or American Idol Spirit for men. Kimberly Caldwell, former contestant, is now the fragrance spokeswoman. She said,
"I have been traveling all over America to the different JCPenney department stores, promoting the new fragrances. It gives people the opportunity to take home a piece of the show. The fans are the biggest part of the show's success, so this gives them something to enjoy from the show."

For me, when I think of the show, I imagine the smell of fear, sweating under the lights and getting humilated in front of the world. No thanks!

The biggest and most recent news is that Desperate Housewives is launching a scent of its own, called Forbidden Fruit (thanks to Now Smell This for relaying the news). The scent will be "as complex, beautiful and sexy as the women of Wisteria Lane" and will be released as a Macy's exclusive this September. Reportedly, the fragrance is a fruity floriental, including notes of crisp Rome apples orange flowers and juicy peaches, a heart of wisteria (natch) and a drydown is of cedarwood, sandalwood, vanilla and tonka bean.

If you enjoy mixing entertainment and fragrance, keep your eyes out for the movie, Perfume: The Story of a Murderer, which stars Dustin Hoffman and is to be released this holiday season. It's based on the book by Patrick Süskind, which I highly recommend!

Ooh la love. This really is interesting... Does everyone and their mother and their mom's sister regularly buy three types of perfume? I thought the market was already swamped with plain celebrity scents, little did I know.

Wow, who knew they could tie so many TV shows to a smell? I'm totally waiting for "Lost: the fragrance" which smells of fear, sweat and Dharma brand peanut butter, with an undernote of polar bear. Or "Grey's Anatomy: Odor of OR" with top notes of betadine and coffee with just a whiff of spermicide.

LOL! I'm addicted to LOST, too! My other addiction is Alias. What might that smell like? Perhaps silicone, gunpowder and baby formula?

BC, this is PRICELESS! Oh to smell like 80s prime time drama!

(And American Idol? Does it come with Simon saying "You make me wish I had no sense of smell.")

Common Breast Cancer Myths

The first myth pertaining to this disease is that it only affects women.

Second myth that is associated with this disease is that if one has found a lump during an examination, it is cancer.

Third is that it is solely hereditary

The next myth associated with breast cancer is downright ridiculous. Would you believe, that in this day and age, some individuals still think that breast cancer is contagious?

Conversely, some individuals foolishly believe that breast size determines whether or not one gets cancer.

Finally, another myth that is associated with this disease is that it only affects older people. This is not so. Although the chance of getting breast cancer increases with age, women as young as 18 have been diagnosed with the disease.
