Long before there were cosmetic brands for men like Myego and Menaji (1973 to be precise) there was this wonderful “unisex mascara” from the legendary Alice Cooper. Can’t, for the life of me, imagine why it never took off. Not entirely sure about the BacoFoil boob tube either to be honest.
I’m not normally one to name drop. In my career as a journalist I’ve met lots of famous types and non-famous types and the latter are generally by far the most interesting. But when it’s fragrance-related, I can’t resist sharing. And I hope she doesn’t mind the indiscretion (and I can live with the naffness of divulging).
Last night some pals and I got talking to actress Anna Friel in a restaurant and at the end of the evening she briefly came over to our table to share with us her current favourite fragrance, one she’d recently purchased from Liberty.
One of my favourite fragrances, this unisex delight is instantly recognisable and possibly one of the longest-lasting fragrances I’ve ever come across (as my pal observed for himself this morning).
