In the Pink: smell bent the pink party...and a Draw

By Tom

It is well known to you, Tonstant Weader, that I am a fan of LA based perfumer smell bent. They put out scents that manage to be cheeky, fun and cheap as chips, but are also really well done. I have several creations by Brent Leonesio on hand that I reach for whenever I'm going to be facing a trying day. He has teamed with über-chic Pacific-Palisades based Elyse Walker to create a scent for her annual Pink Party, which has raised over 5.5 million dollars for the Cedars-Sinai Women's Cancer Program at the Samuel Oschin Comprehensive Cancer Institute.

The scent itself is all about pink grapefruit, peel, pith and pulp. I adore pink grapefruit on my plate as well as in a scent when it's done well, and here it is. There's also sugar cane adding a bit of brûlée to the party, what I swear is a hint of jasmine and a soupçon of musk adding a final flirty, drrty skirt flick to the scent. I think when another Pivot Table or PowerPoint gets plopped into my lap with a deadline attached I'll have another scent in the arsenal that will take me to my happy-place..

The scent is available at the smell bent website, $55 for a 15ML roll-on with free shipping. Best of all, all proceeds go to benefit those affected by gynecologic, breast and other women's cancers.

smell bent has provided a generously sized 5ML sample for one lucky reader. Please leave a comment if you would like to be in the draw. Please note that I can only ship inside the 48 United States; sorry kids, this is on my dime. The draw will be open until 5pm Pacific Time on Sunday, June 19th.

my tester was provided by the perfumer

I'd love to try this! Brent is my favorite - recently I discovered that my Smell Bent collection outnumbers my Guerlain collection. I'll probably buy this regardless but I always like to sniff first if I can.

Oh, this draw sounds like fun, and for a wonderful cause. I read recently that the smell of grapefruit on a person makes that person appear younger. Bring it on!

An aquarium is a modified environment for marine creatures to call home. It is also a venue for people to witness the beauty of the waters and all the creatures therein. Selecting the best tank for your aquarium should be based on these two concepts.

Many people love to buy discontinued perfumes. It makes them feel good knowing that they have a scent that is very precious and perfect for special occasions.
