Stink Bombs


Not what you think.

From Monika Anderson's item in yesterday's Wall Street Journal: "The first gift Napoleon bestowed on his son was a Cire Trudon candle. And indeed, every offering from the 367-year-old candle maker, scented and otherwise, is fit for an emperor. Now the French company is bringing its cult-favorite goods to its first store outside of Paris, at 54 Bond St. in New York, and going online as of Monday. The New York opening coincides with the release of perfumed Stink Bombs [top]: petite glass vials that, when broken, will sweeten the atmosphere for hours."

I guess you have to be supremely confident about what you have to offer to give your product a name like "Stink Bombs."

Not widely known is that Elton John and Bernie Taupin wrote "Candle in the Wind" in 1973

as a tribute to Marilyn Monroe, who had died 11 years earlier.

Marilyn was the most gorgeous woman of all time. Femininity at it's utmost.
