“Fragrance” Tattoo

I don’t have any tattoos, but I’ll admire a good one when I see it. I recently visited the exhibition “Tattooed New York” at the New-York Historical Society (see it if you can!) and thought of all my fellow aromaphiles when I saw this photograph.

The artist is Rose Hardy and the woman wearing this elaborate image is Zoe Brown. The photographer is Nicole Reed.

Fantastic, right?


Covet: Scented Flower Tattoos


I don’t have any tattoos, and I don’t think I ever will. Why not? Many reasons…

But look at these temporary tattoos! They’re based on the botanical illustrations of Vincent Jeannerot, and they’re FRAGRANCED with a scent created by Agilex Fragrances — a blend of fuschia, poppy, ylang ylang, and poplar wood. They’re supposed to last on the skin for 2 to 4 days before wearing away. I think one of these peonies or hydrangea clusters would be a lovely reminder of spring in the depths of winter, even if it were worn secretly under a cozy sweater.

Set of 8 for $18 at Tattly.
