Happy Valentine’s Day ya freaks!


January 26th, 2012

With Valentine’s Day approaching, we’re going to switch it up and do For Her and Then He Steals It.

Penhaligon’s Juniper Sling is inspired by London Dry Gin … and let’s all remember: dudes like anything that references drinking, or getting you drunk. It opens with a clean, crisp scent that calls to mind a classic men’s cologne, then warms to soft brown sugar and amber notes.


I think we’re lucky to live in a time where sexuality and gender are increasingly blurred (I believe that’s called freedom … or at least, we’re getting there). I love a fragrance that references cologne - I think it lets your own modern femininity tell a story, rather than laying some outdated idea of “woman” on you.  The same is true were he to steal this … I think the warmer notes would merge so interestingly with a man’s skin to create something really sexy.

But more importantly, it comes with a note that says “Keep Me” - and it’s in a robin’s egg blue box like something else - so basically: you get this, you’re engaged now. In your mind. For 2 minutes. Whatever. Modern woman. Fiancé sounds like a car name. Anyway. [Chugs gin & tonic].

Despite the silver bow, this is definitely a unisex fragrance, so don’t hesitate to pick it up for him yourself, then obviously steal it.
