    There's no such thing as bad publicity, as Ivanka Trump is discovering. The president's daughter was caught up in a row this month when Nordstrom said it would stop selling the her brand of products. Although the upmarket department store said the decision was simply down to poor sales, Donald Trump accused the company of treating his daughter "so unfairly". His senior adviser, Kellyanne Conway, was then "counselled" by the White House after urging the president’s supporters to buy Ivanka's line of products, which includes clothing, jewellery, handbags and other goods. The encouragement may have paid off as her perfume...

    Hot, cheesy and fresh out of the oven — exactly how a girl wants to smell, right? Demeter’s new Pizza perfume re-creates the sensation of diving into a slice of ’za, with a strong scent of dough mixed with notes of tomato sauce, mozzarella and oregano. In testing, Daily News olfactory workers deemed it “intoxicating and a little off-putting,”“as romantic as a cheese slice at 2 a.m.” and “great, if you want to smell like garlic.” The most dangerous side effect for your diet: “It makes you constantly think about pizza,” said one tester. The good news: The fragrance isn’t...

    Zombie-scented perfumes make you smell less attractive to the undead Usually a person dabs on a bit of perfume in hopes of attracting someone else's attention, but could a zombie-scented perfume repel the affections of the flesh-craving dead? Demeter Fragrance Library, purveyors of all sorts of offbeat scents, have come up with a pair of undead-themed perfumes that could come in handy during the zombie apocalypse. No, the perfume doesn't smell like decaying flesh. Instead, Zombie for Him combines dried leaves, mushrooms, mildew, moss and earth, while Zombie for Her is a more feminine version, adding "a touch of Dregs...

    Pizza Hut may have discovered a new route to a man’s heart — through his nose. The chain is releasing the limited-edition scent, which smells of “freshly baked, hand-tossed dough,” in response to an Internet joke that began last August. According to a company news release, Pizza Hut Canada’s marketing firm, Grip Ltd., asked the chain’s Facebook fans what they would name a perfume that smelled like “a box of Pizza Hut pizza being opened.” When the post went viral — earning more than 300 frenzied comments — they decided to make good on the gag.

    SNIPPET: "New York City is the center of a public uproar as Internet blogger Pamela Gellar rises with an “anti-jihad” ad campaign." SNIPPET: "Gellar and her group are protesting the Jihad, which in definition is the religious duty of Muslims. According to the Dictionary of Islam, jihad is defined as “A religious war with those who are unbelievers in the mission of Muhammad . . . enjoined especially for the purpose of advancing Islam and repelling evil from Muslims.” The literal meaning of jihad, according to the British Broadcasting Network, “is struggle or effort, and it means much more than...

    SNIPPET - quote: Mohammed Abu Hasnath, 19,  of Blair Street E14, has been jailed at the Old Bailey for 14 months after he admitted being in possession of Al Qaeda’s on-line terrorist magazine “Inspire.” The young perfume salesman was arrested by detectives from the Metropolitan Police’s Counter Terrorism Command on October 13 last year as he was cycling along the East India Dock Road. Hasnath pleaded guilty to four charges of having copies of the magazine on his computer memory USB stick. The Central Criminal Court heard that he had also painted burqas on scantily clad women featured on advertising posters in the local area. As...

    Taking a break from all the screaming, yelling, and gnashing of teeth that the Obamacare Health Illusion has generated, I chanced upon this while I was looking at an article on another site. It seems some 'enterprising' business (pun very intended) has manufactured not one but THREE perfumes and colognes for fans of the "Star Trek" universe.

    Beijing officials hope spraying perfume from 100 high-pressure nozzles around a major landfill can temporarily end complaints about the stink. City officials also promise to cover the Asuwei dump with more layers of plastic, The Guardian reports. People living near the landfill say the smell is almost unbearable when the wind is blowing from the dump. Getting rid of the trash generated by China's growing economy and prosperity is a difficult problem, especially in Beijing, where 17 million people live. Photographer Wang Jiuliang has spent a year taking pictures of the 200 landfills circling the city in what he calls...

    In 2008, a city planner filed a lawsuit claiming a co-worker's perfume made it challenging for her to do her job. Susan McBride filed her lawsuit under the American with Disabilities Act, because she said he co-workers' fragrances made it hard for her to breath. She was awarded $100,000. "One of the things the city is going to have to figure out is how they enforce the policy they've agreed to," said attorney John Holmquist. "The city is going to have to get involved in hygiene, I'd guess you'd say, which no employer wants to get involved in." A notice...

    We've all been there, a restaurant, church, classroom, shopping aisle and yes a bar, when someone will walk in and the place turns to weeping eyes and sneezing. How well do you think people take it when asked to "remove" their perfume? But due to stories like the people above who fell ill due to someone's perfume I believe people are starting to look at perfume as the next cigarette.

    PORTLAND — A former Washington state Transportation Department engineer yesterday has found himself, his imam and his mosque swept into an unfolding investigation by Portland's joint terrorism force led by the FBI. Farid Adlouni, a civil engineer and U.S. citizen who once worked out of the Vancouver office, was profiled in The Oregonian newspaper yesterday as a man with business ties to a top Osama bin Laden aide and who has attracted FBI scrutiny. Adlouni, 38, yesterday said he had "done nothing wrong." The imam, Mohammad Abdirahman Kariye, also a U.S. citizen, was recently charged with two felony counts of...

    Archaeologists have discovered vases of perfumed ointment which may have been used by Mary Magdalene to anoint the feet of Jesus. The Italian team have been digging for several months at the ancient Palestinian town of Magdala – from where Mary gets her name. The archaeologists of the Franciscan academic society Studium Biblicum Franciscanum found the unopened vases dating to the first century AD conserved in mud at the bottom of a swimming pool in Magdala's thermal complex. The town is on the western shore of the Sea of Galilee and Mary Magdalene is mentioned several times throughout the Bible....

    DETROIT—A federal judge says a Detroit city employee can proceed with a civil suit claiming she couldn't work because of a co-worker's strong perfume. The Detroit News says U.S. District Judge Lawrence Zatkoff determined Susan McBride has a potential claim under the Americans with Disabilities Act. The city is asking to have the suit dismissed. McBride says she's severely sensitive to perfumes and other cosmetics. She says the perfume worn by a co-worker in the city's Planning Department made it difficult for her to breathe. She says the co-worker also used a plugged in room deodorizer. The suit says the...

    Still in Control Pervez Musharraf was calm, confident and—despite a flurry of rumors—not about to announce his resignation. Instead, the Pakistani president's "concession" to his troubled nation was an announcement that he would allow Britain's Scotland Yard to help local law enforcement agencies with their investigation into last week's assassination of former prime minister Benazir Bhutto. Speaking in a nationally televised address two hours after Pakistan's election commission announced the postponement of the ballot to Feb. 18, six weeks later than had been scheduled, Musharraf was notably deferential in his remarks about Bhutto, often invoking her "martyrdom" and extolling...

The sense of smell appears to be impaired in people with the condition meaning they use more scent. Smell is already known to have a profound effect on mood and memory with shops and retailers using aromas to induce shoppers to buy certain products. But a team at Tel Aviv University have found that certain diseases cause the body to attack the olfactory system which governs the ability to detect...
