Hey, Stinky - There's Hope Yet For You With A New Fragrance Pill

March 19, 2008 by SheFindsCatesby
shefinds |

A team of Brazilian scientists is currently working on an ingestible perfume that would keep you smelling like lavender…permanently.

The FiberSense pill, like the odiferous edibles that inspired the product (garlic, curry, and asparagus), discharges its pleasing scent through sweat and urine, meaning that your once-stinky bodily excretions might soon take the place of deodorants, perfumes, and other frangrant products. SheFinds will let you know when this miracle product gets FDA approval. Until that day, however, here are some new takes on traditional ways to stay smelling great:

1) Antiperspirant Deodorants. I used to live in Argentina, where underarm odor control was either anti-sweat or anti-smell, but never both. Let me be the first to say that I need all the help I can get, and that Argentina's delicate deodorants didn't really help my, ahem, excessive perspiration. Luckily, here in the U.S. we double-up the power, and my current anti-pit-stain fave is Secret Clinical Strength ($6.99), because some of us don't perspire. Or glisten. We sweat. That's the admirable motto for this powerful deodorant, which combines prescription-strength wetness protection with skin-soothing lotions and odor-fighting capsules. You're guaranteed to stay drier, longer.

2) Perfumes. Despite a recent New York Times article about how women are wearing less fragrance these days, some well-applied perfume can be a savior on the day when there's no hot water and you can't shower, or an aphrodisiac on that crucial third-date dinner. You can't go wrong with Chanel Chance Eau de Toilette ($92), a decidedly young, floral scent, or the seductive Nina by Nina Ricci ($69). Both are finalists for Best Fragrance of 2008 from the Fragrance Foundation, which will choose a winner in May. Check out the other nominees here.

As for men's fragrances, Tom Ford is making news with his 12 new artisanal scents, like Amber Absolute, Tobacco Vanille, and NOIR DE NOIR, the sweet, floral best-seller of the line. The perfumes will run around $90-$165, but aren't available just yet. Until they come out this spring, you can't go wrong with the scent that Ford has tweeked and tweeked until perfection, Black Orchid Voile de Fluer ($90).

3) Body Wash. I for one don't like a highly scented body wash. Instead, I like something that smells clean–but subtly so. Right now I'm really enjoying Shea Terra Organics Lavender of the Khoisan Indigenous Silk and Shea Butter shower elixir ($18).

Sheaterra

As the name indicates, it smells great, but not so great that my smell wafts into a room before I do. And the silk and shea butter ingredients make this body wash highly moisturizing, which is crucial for someone with dry skin like mine. And, of course, it's organic–a plus that, in this day and age, we dare not undervalue anymore (Want to do your teeniest-tiniest part to help salvage what's left of the earth? Just go organic where possible. It couldn't be easier!).
