What initially looks like a wheat paste ad for Wear a Mask perfume is actually a street art project from real-life perfume company D.S. & Durga. But is it really just an ad, or is it an artsy public service announcement? The burning question being: Is Wear a Mask eau de parfum a thing that exists? I can’t get a straight answer on that.
Spotted outside a boarded-up tapas restaurant, the ad copy describes the scent as embodying:
Notes of 70% reduction in transmission, peace lily, and caring about other people.
Popular D.S. & Durga scents include Burning Barbershop and Mississippi Medicine, so this could be real, but it almost doesn’t matter, because the message is clear. The brand has a brick-and-mortar store located in Greenwich Village, Manhattan (currently closed due to the pandemic), but their perfumes and other body products are also sold online, and through high-end retailers such as Nordstrom.
The end of summer is always bitter-sweet. *Sigh*. So, let’s liven the mood a bit with this a softly rocking tune from Atlanta-based garage rockers, The Coathangers, who are making an encore appearance on this here rad blog with their thematically seductive video for “Perfume.”
As the beguiling Coathanger ladies lounge and frolic on the beach, or cruise leisurely down an inlet canal, the lyrics, “Summer stole the perfume from my eyes” tells you all you need to know about the seasonal transition that leaves us all feeling a bit wistful. The Coathangers have been descirbed as Stiff Little Fingers on Diazepam, meets the Pixies, meets the Dandy Warhols. I cant really do better than that, so let’s just let that smoldering ember sit a bit, and cool off. Hit me!
“Perfume” can be found on the band’s latest EP, Parasite, which is out now on Suicide Squeeze Records! Enjoy!
As proof that One Direction Mania has infiltrated all corners of the world, I took the above photo while vacationing in Hamilton, Bermuda. So, there really is no escaping it. There actually appear to be two separate fragrances: That Moment and Our Moment. A little sleuthing on my part reveals that That Moment is actually an updated version of Our Moment. Blah Blah Blah. I hate knowing that this perfume exists.
And just what does a women’s fragrance from One Direction smell like, you ask? Let’s find out. According to Frangrantica Dot Com, “Our Moment by One Direction is a Floral Fruity fragrance for women. Top notes are pink grapefruit, forest fruits and red currant; middle notes are freesia, jasmine and frangipani; base notes are woodsy notes, patchouli and musk.”
What the hell are “Forest Fruits”? I ask yez.
Anyway, the user reviews are hilarious and my favorite is this one:
“Smells exactly like Britney Spears Circus Fantasy. Nothing special about it. A typical celeb perfume.”
Britney Spears Circus Fantasy? I don’t even want to know what that smells like.

There are Three Golden Rules with regard to Sex on the Beach:
1. Pick a position and stick to it: Too much switching and swapping results in two bodies entirely coated in beach sand.
2. Bring a towel or blanket: Sand in your underwear is both uncomfortable and hard to explain.
3. Proceed with caution: that stretch of golden sand is always less secluded than you think.
Of course, you don’t need to pay these rules any mind if you’ve simply chosen to spray your skin lightly with Demeter Fragrance Library’sSex On The Beach cologne spray – an inviting combination of Vodka, unsweetened Pineapple Juice, a touch of Raspberry liquor, a hint of Melon liquor and a splash of Cranberry that’s intoxicating on an entirely new level!
