A rhubarb-based perfume? We were initially confused, but one sniff of Nina Ricci 'Ricci Ricci' Eau de Parfum ($80) had us nodding our heads in understanding. The sweet-tart tang of the rhubarb freshens up the otherwise heavy tuberose, rose, and bergamot floral blend for a... [More]

Fragrance wunderkind Jo Malone's newest scent, English Pear & Freesia Cologne ($55-100) was apparently inspired by a walk in an autumnal English orchard. If English orchards really do smell this amazing (Pear, freesia, rose, amber, and patchouli), can we move there tonight? Especially if Colin... [More]

Fragrance doesn't need to be high art all of the time. If blue raspberry ever was your favorite flavor of anything, you'll want to put your adult side off to the side for a minute and try out Ribbon, from Mariah Carey's Lollipop Bling trio... [More]

We're as easily swayed by charming packaging as the next girl, so it's a very good thing that the actual scent of Honore des Pres Love Coco Eau de Parfum ($98) is as lovable as the NYC coffee-cup inspired packaging. Described as a hybrid of... [More]

The crew at smell bent likes their voodoo strong, but we find ourselves most drawn to their lighter (comparatively speaking, folks) offerings. In honor of their first anniversary as a company, they've released ONE, which is a marvelously autumnal blend of old paperback books, vanilla,... [More]

Outblush is reviewing another men's cologne? Well. Yeah! Paco Rabanne's new 1 Million ($53 for the small bottle, $70 for the big one) runs with the mint trend, blending the note with warmer ingredients like amber and cinnamon to make something distinctive and almost candied.... [More]

You'd think we didn't mind overwhelming amounts of pink (see: site design), but occasionally, the frenetic PINKPINKPINK of Victoria's Secret stores gets us a little woozy. On a recent trip to stock up on our fave no-VPL underwear, we got accosted by a salesgirl and... [More]

Do any of you young'ns know what a mix tape is? We suspect that these days, it's all about custom MP3 playlists, so we'll just tell you that's the same - only it's not, 'cause it so doesn't take the same dedication to sit by... [More]

There is something so pleasurable about indulging in simplicity. The Honeymoon Fragrance ($65) by Stephanie Simek is one of our favorite new pleasures. With a fresh all-natural scent boasting of grapefruit and basil, we can wear this daily but still hold on to that honeymoon... [More]

Except if it's not a perfume, why are they charging for it like it is? For better (this office has an open floor plan) and for worse (these flowers have anemia) light scents are extremely popular right now. But light doesn't have to mean lazy.... [More]

A lush, bold floral, new Givenchy Play For Her ($48-80) is not for the perfume timid. Earthy, warm amyris wood base notes ground the almost overpowering floral notes of tiare flower, sweet pea, and bergamot. The scent isn't one we'd recommend for day wear, but... [More]

It's been a while since we featured a perfume oil, rather than a spray fragrance, but those of you who prefer your scents concentrated and without the alcohol should love golden earth's Grace ($20). It's a rose geranium blend that's flowery, green, and not too... [More]

You know how perfume lines often offer special gift-with-purchase sets around the holidays? Well, if Avon puts out a GWP set for Outspoken by Fergie Eau de Toilette Spray ($28) that just happened to include a free Josh Duhamel with every order, we'd be buying... [More]

Our beloved Kate Spade. She can do no wrong. Last week the guru of fashion accessories unveiled her latest and greatest: Twirl eau de parfum ($80). It's 3.4 ounces of fresh, bubbly perfection. The top notes boast of pink watermelon, blackberry, and red currents, and... [More]

If there's a Bliss Spa product out there we haven't loved, well, then, kittens, we haven't met it yet. They celebrate femininity without going overboard on the cutesy, or making us feel bad about our problem areas. It's little wonder, then, that all of that... [More]

So you've done the gourmands. You've done the big aldehydes and the big orientals. You've done the white florals and the fruity florals - and you're still looking for a scent that makes you feel sexy and grown-up and unique. And Outblush is seriously recommending... [More]

Always wanted a custom-blended perfume, but can't afford to hire a professional nose (perfumer)? Do the work yourself! Melange Solid Perfume Blending Palettes ($28 each) are floppy disk-sized palettes that look for all the world like yellow concealer, but are actually single-note scents you can... [More]

The makers of the fabulous Angel and Alien are taking our noses in a different direction with the new Thierry Mugler Womanity ($58-98). As opposed to their traditional dark, sensual scents, Womanity is sweet and savory and built around the fig fruit, a symbol of... [More]

Until a couple of weeks ago, marshmallows weren't exactly on our radar as a fancy treat. The only kind we were really familiar with were the kind you buy in bulk for s'mores and promptly forget about in your pantry.
But Viveltre Marsmallows aren't that kind of marshmallows - these are the kind you hide from the rest of your family so you can eat them all yourself... or the kind you could give as a gift if you're feeling generous. They come in an array of decadent flavors like Red Velvet and Bacon Bourbon.
If your mouth isn't watering yet - what's wrong with you? But we're here to offer some relief; Viveltre is offering 3 dozen marshmallows in flavors of your choice to one lucky Outblush reader! See the giveaway form below to enter, and good luck!
