New Releases for JULY 2015!

Recommended Posts

Fun stuff! What great labels Mara, as always. :) I love all the vintage labels you find, but Ms. Norma Jean Baker and Bettie Page? Whoo! And Lobster people??? :lol: I'm so excited about these new releases - my first in a few months! I guess that means I'll have to get the sampler. Hee!

I'm chomping at the bit for notes, but I know Luna has been busy! (Thank you, Luna! :D )

Oh wow!! New releases are here!! They all look fantastic!

 

I promise, Summer Crush does not smell like seafood.

 

 

 

Ha ha, "Lobster babes" had me thinking of Old Bay seasoning. ;)

QG - that one is totally a "you" kind of scent, I think.

It certainly seems to be my kind of scent and I am sure I will love it. Just the name made me smile. Plus women in bikinis, ughhh. :D

 

On a side note, I saw in the news where the roof of a record store collapsed under the weight of all the vinyl they had stored upstairs. I better keep my collection of scents on the ground floor although I know I have nowhere near the collection you or some of the other ladies have.

The LP pineapple variant sounds so exciting. I wonder if how different it is from LP Sunfire?

Yes, there's only a few groups of images of her that are pub domain. Her likeness and rights of publicity are now pub domain as of 2 years ago, but the photographers still hold copyrights. The available ones are general studio shots that were not renewed, stills from certain movies - as the movies were renewed but not the stills, and pix taken by the federal government...the ones used for the war effort of her as a teen with airplane parts. Very interesting stuff.

That's so intresting. I know various parts of her estate were under siege a few times. I have to see the war time "airplane" photos. I knew a photographer many years ago (1990) who was one of a few who photographed her pre MM days. I don't know if he ever released them. Of all the photos I've seen I have not seen those.

Even though she looks very different you can still see the Marilyn behind the eyes.

Here's the wartime photo:

Tyvey. Do we get a hint, or is that a question I shouldn't be asking...? :kiss43:

 

And as for Marilyn! Since I do not refrain from asking dumb questions--as you all know by now :):):):heart: --is that Marylin in both Kissed by the Sun and H2O Oh Oh??? The H2O chick actually reminds me of Shirley Temple as a teenager, but I don't think she would ever have posed so sexy... :Emoticons0424:

 

And MARA!!! Are you going to do a Sniffathon at the store for every set of NRs??? Gonna have to bear that in mind, if so... B)

 

 

P.S. I WANT A LOBSTER COSTUME.

*gigglesnort*

*scuttles off making lobstery pincer-hands*

 

ETA: Actually, my younger daughter and I have this thing we do saying "crab crab crab" in Japanese and dancing around like crabs...a lobster costume would sorta slide right in there...

Today, I almost wish I were a guy because it would be so much easier to shop for FBs from this set of NRs. I want them all. My question is when they do a set and there are 12 (yes 12) new releases, how do they pick 10 for the monthly sampler? I don't think I will get any sleep tonight pondering that mystery.

I'm still trying to figure out how you carry a tray of food whilst wearing lobster claws.

 

Can't wait to see the notes. What a lovely collection!

Quick question regarding the ambrosia: how much patchouli tended to come through in previous batches. It makes me crazy, but I tend to amp patchouli. I so want to be able to wear this.

Well I can only speak for the 2012 batch but honestly I didn't even remember there was patch in it so it must not reveal itself too much. I love patch and am usually quite aware of when it comes out and lingers....also I could be wrong but I don't think Hearts likes patch too much and she loves Ambrosia...so that might be a good sign for you.

I'd like to know how those lobster people carry stuff too! I can't imagine having to wear that to work! LOL! I can hardly carry a tray as it is...

 

EOSP, it's Milo Aukerman, the singer for the Descendents, way back in the 80s. I love this shot of him - so intense! And nice legs! :lol: Wish I could have seen them back then! Descendents, not the legs!

Yeah I saw that - it happened in San Diego! Not a store I've ever been to, though.

My question is when they do a set and there are 12 (yes 12) new releases, how do they pick 10 for the monthly sampler?

A monthly sampler is usually 10-12 scents, so none are omitted in that case. it's only when it's a bigger set that it happens.

 

And for my last dumb question...

You mean "lobster babes" wasn't enough of a hint?! :P

I had no idea what "lobster babes" was but I did envision retro posters so it all made sense in the end. I'm really curious about the scent. Is it aquatic or a popular drink the lobster babes would have served :lol:.

 

How did they wait tables in those costumes?

Summer Crush is obviously lobster roll (lobster, a buttered roll, a shake of old bay. and coleslaw) plus corn on the cob

It's an indoor refrigerated scent only. Don't wear out in the heat. :) Now I'm hungry for seafood.

 

I can't imagine how hot those ladies were in the summer Atlantic City heat. Maybe it's Lobster Babe sweat?

WOW!!! The NRs look fabulous!!! Of course there are a few already calling my name..;) Can't wait to read the notes on these and get my sampler!!! I am not usually one for relying on the internet for information which I consider valid, but this morning I was looking up Hedione to find out a little more about it...I came across this article which had some intruiging info on how it relates to pheromones...(moderators-if you find this article has incorrect information and need to delete the link, please do so..:))

H2000 is someone different.

 

YES! Sniffathon every month if we can, that's the plan!

Another plan, when you can, is to have you up here for a First Friday to display your sigils and talk about your artwork. The FF events are all about artists!

thanks, Luna..:) I hadn't even checked to see if there was a thread about it... Can the potions with Hedione be boosted just the same? If so, would having the Hedione in there with the pheros give it an extra "oomph" (for lack of a better word)?

A bit of drawn butter and a lemon wedge -- it's what all the sophisticated ladies smell of come summer.

I would imagine, but then again it might negate the purported effect of Hedione to do so.
