How I Fell Back In Love With An Old Perfume

If "what is your strongest scent memory?" was a category on Family Feud, the number one answer would probably be "my mother's perfume." It's the anecdote you hear time and time again. But while I certainly remember my mom's signature scent—it was Cartier in my childhood and heavy on the vanilla—it's my own perfumes of years' past that instantly transport me back in time. After all, I've had quite the love affair with fragrance—and the collection to prove it. The first perfume I ever had was Cacharel's Anais Anais, which was released in 1978 and smelled like it. But oh how I loved that bottle. It was tiny and short, ivory-and-pink, and covered in girlish flowers. Although I never liked the powdery scent, I...

Imaginary Best Friend Kate Moss Is Obsessed With Secret Gardens And ‘Gilmore Girls’


Kate Moss's ascent to supermodel stardom began in 1993 with Calvin Klein Obsession, a fragrance that traffics in the singular feeling of infatuation. Rather than replicate young romance in a studio, Klein sent an 18-year-old Moss and then boyfriend, 20-year-old photographer Mario Sorrenti, to Jost Van Dyke in the British Virgin Islands for 10 days. The couple returned from their trip with hundreds of black and white images, the making of one of Calvin Klein's most iconic campaigns to date.

"I would take pictures of her all of the time, and sometimes it drove her crazy, and other times she loved to be part of it. We had really good times. We were young, and I was...

Le Labo’s Rare “City” Scents Will Be Available Worldwide For 1 Month Only

In our hyper-globalized, digitized, and increasingly connected world, the idea of going to a store to pick up pretty much anything, from grocery items to fall wardrobe staples, seems like an analog endeavor. There are apps, same-day messenger services, and overnight international delivery options for that. But these modes of convenient consumption have just made the in-store exclusive that much more coveted, a retail tactic that Soho’s Le Labo perfumery is plenty familiar with. The fan-favorite niche fragrance house, known for compounding and pouring its 15 über-original perfume blends on-site, has a second collection of “city exclusive” scents that are sold only at their 11 international retail outlets. You may have heard of them as one hears of urban legends—a gaiac wood scent...

Bloom serves as Alessandro Michele's first women's scent for the label.

After much anticipation following a New York City launch event back in May, the campaign for Gucci Bloom, Alessandro Michele's first women's scent for the label, is finally here — and damn, does it deliver. The series of dreamy photos, which the Italian house rolled out on Instagram on Tuesday, depict Dakota Johnson, Hari Nef and Petra Collins (What. A. Trio.) standing serenely in a lush garden and wearing head-to-toe Gucci florals, of course.

"It's a surreal idea of wearing a garden." In...

How To Wear The Right Perfume For Your Skin Type


Orange blossoms and the scent of ocean waves anchored in warm tropical coconut oil.
We’re all aware of the importance of picking the right skincare for your skin type, and the right clothes for your body shape, but have you ever thought about matching your fragrance to your skin type? The type of skin you have on your face stays largely the same for the rest of your body. The larger pores and more active sebum glands that characterise oily skin are found on the body as well as the face. In the same way, dryness or sensitivity are rarely limited to just the face. So when picking your signature scent, take your skin into consideration! Along with your diet, hormones, skin chemistry, microbiome, and body temperature, the type of skin you have also plays a...

The Simple Elegance of Linda Rodin’s Namesake Beauty Brand

Who? Those familiar with our particular proclivities at AnOther Magazine will be au fait with Linda Rodin – a woman whose approach to self-presentation and cosmetics alike have firmly established her as one of our favourites. 67 years old and almost impossibly chic, the former model-slash-stylist's namesake skincare line, Rodin Olio Lusso, is as remarkably appealing as she is herself. A simple series of oil-based products which not only come in our favourite packaging but work with impressive vigour, Rodin explains that “my tag line is 'there is beauty in simplicity,” and thus, each incarnation exists without all of the bizarre bells and whistles that are so often extraneous to a product's efficacy. “I only make products that I personally want, need and use,” she says. Essentially, it's an...
