theNotice’s favourite online magazine article of 2011 | Journey to the Heart of Fragrance

Wednesday, January 4, 2012

Um, am I allowed to take a moment to shamelessly throw link love at just one article? Because if I am — I’m totally going to do it.

Neil T. Sternberg’s Journey to the Heart of Fragrance has been by & far my favourite piece on the fragrance industry since… well, ever. It’s a recounting of Sternberg’s tour through IFF’s Creative Laboratory in New York, a building which essentially represents my dream education: if money was no object, and I didn’t have to think about my future, and I wasn’t chronically ill (ack, that’s a lot of “what if”s!), I’d be begging their perfumery school to take me.

It’s a long article, but for a fragrance addict, it’s definitely worth a read. I’ll leave you now with a few links, for further reading in relation to the article.

As far as my favourite online mag articles of 2011 go, Marc Ambinder’s Inside the Secret Service was a great one, too. In the end, I decided that an article from Perfume Magazine would be more fitting for a beauty blog than an article on political security from the Atlantic, though both were very compelling reads!

(In other news, if your magazine is online, is it still “in”? Or is it “on”?)

A bit of Saturday link love

Saturday, December 10, 2011

Posting is going to be a bit patchy over the next few days – sorry!! There is so much that I’m dying to cover, but between finals and massive upper body flares (who knew that elbows could be so susceptible to inflammatory arthritis?!), I’m a bit short on free time.

Anyhow. For now, here are three gorgeous spreads that inspired ours!

Vanity Fair / BEAUTEZINE / Glitter Geek

In other news…

My drawing pad is finally working again! Here’s a rough sketch what our “get ornamental” spread was supposed to look like, before the pad decided to stop working on me. Do we love it? Do we hate it? It makes me think of candy canes :D

(I had filched Jessica’s gorgeous headline style in the meantime, because have you tried handwriting on a magic trackpad? It’s ridiculous. Ironically, all I had to do was unplug, reboot, and re-plug, and it’s working just fine again.)

(Oh, technology. Remind me never to go the refurbished route ever again.)

I’ve completely fallen for the blue eyeliner recently, and I love it even more with the gold glitter — they really make each other pop!
