If You Have Hair, The Wet Brush is a Must Have


For years, I have used an oversized wide-tooth comb to detangle my notoriously impossible to detangle post-shampoo hair. The amount of hair that would get caught in the teeth was somewhat alarming. But I chalked it up to the fact that I only wash my hair once a week - so maybe the hair loss really wasn't all that CONTINUE READING

Reunited And It Smells So Good: Michel Germain Deauville

Posted on by daneen in Fragrance, Spoiled Pretty family | 3 Comments

michel+germaine+deauville Reunited And It Smells So Good: Michel Germain Deauville
Ten years ago, in a perfume shop in the Bahamas, my father and I fell in love with the same fragrance – Deauville pour Homme by Michel Germain. We were smitten at first scent, but the price tag seemed a little inflated. So when we re-boarded our cruise ship, we searched the duty free store. No luck. When we returned to Philadelphia, my dad left no department store unturned – but he always left empty-handed.

Apparently, the Bahamian saleswoman hadn’t exaggerated Deauville’s hard-to-find status. So Dad and I cursed our inner bargain hunters, until he discovered Deauville during a routine trip to Bloomingdale’s a year later. Dad snatched it up, not caring how much it cost. I, on the other hand, was a poor college student. I barely had the funds to keep my gas tank filled, so I hit up my typically generous mom for a loan. She refused, not understanding why a 21-year-old girl would want to wear men’s cologne. So I was forced to satisfy my Deauville cravings by stealing a spritz from my dad when I happened to be home from school.

For the past nine years, a bottle of Deauville has been perched atop my dad’s dresser. You’d be hard pressed to find a bigger fan of the fragrance than Papa Spoiled Pretty. And while I have always had a soft spot for the crisp clementine, spicy white pepper, French white thyme, pipe tobacco and amber oak moss notes – over the years, Deauville sorta regressed to the recesses of my mind. Until a few weeks ago, that is.

While bargain hunting at TJ Maxx with Mama Spoiled Pretty, I spotted several bottles of Deauville pour Homme on a display right by the registers. You know, the shelves full of goodies that beckon to you – their siren song impossible to ignore? Anyway, I picked up the Deauville box, examined the familiar packaging, and the price tag said…$9.99! Does it get any better?

Since then, Deauville has been perched atop my dresser (like dad, like Daneen). Mr. Spoiled Pretty is a little weirded out by my affinity for men’s cologne (he calls it “nasty”), so I was excited to learn that Deauville pour Homme has a lady counterpart, Deauville French Spa. I’m not sure how French Spa’s Italian Bergamot, black currant, gardenia, lotus, white wood and musky notes relate to the cologne, but I’m eager to find out.

Kenzo Parfums is celebrating 20 years in the biz by re-launching their website, kenzousa.com. Today, the newly re-designed website is unveiled to the public – and to mark the occasion, they’re hosting their first ever Friends and Family Anniversary Event! Now through November 24th, get 20% off your entire purchase at kenzousa.com.

 Kenzo Friends & Family
And just in time for the Friends and Family promotion, Kenzo debuts a rich and spicy new fragrance for her – KenzoAmour Le Parfum. The perfect scent for cooler weather, KenzoAmour Le Parfum is a woody oriental evocative of a slow, sensuous journey through the exotic landscapes of Asia. The richness of benzoin balm and amber combines with the softness of frangipani blossom and vanilla to bring forth a new story in Kenzo’s Asian voyage. Inspired by the ethereal shrines of the East, designer Karim Rashid’s original bottle design has been dipped in a matte gold finish, reminiscent of the precious offerings made to the deities as thanks for the good fortune bestowed.

Actress and new Bond Girl Olga Kurylenko is the face of the fragrance, which launched this past weekend – coinciding with the national release of Quantum of Solace.

KenzoAmour Le Parfum is available in 1 oz and 1.7 oz ($52/$68 with the 20% discount, $65/$85 without).
