My friend T. just sent me a link to an article about the latest development in LUSH’s lawsuit against Amazon UK. It hinges on Amazon’s refusal to stop selling products by a company called Bomb Cosmetics. The products themselves are complete rip-offs of LUSH products. See for yourself:

I was flipping through the latest issue of Lucky magazine and I stopped to snicker over this trend piece about perfumes that take their inspiration from—wait for it—flowers!! Whatever will they think of next?
Then I lingered longer on the page, because this new Maison Martin Margiela fragrance, Beach Walk, made me think. It’s a citrusy tropical floral designed to evoke “Sun kissed salty skin” in “Calvi, 1972.” (Calvi is located on the island of Corsica. I had to look that up.)
