Honestly, I’m only writing this one up because it’s the last in the gift set and I need closure. And the photo turned out cute and I have some time to kill while waiting to get my COVID-19 booster vax.
Incanto Bloom might be the most heinous of the collection. (No, lady giving me the stink-eye for sneezing, I’m not contagious.)
So this mess goes on with grapefruit rind and curried sawdust, then delivers a bouquet of artificial roses before dying a sad musky death. Luckily, it doesn’t last long.
The disconnect between Ferragamo’s clothing and footwear design standards (their boots are marvelous) and this entire Incanto line of fragrances is hard to understand. The house knows what quality is, they’ve just chosen not to produce it.
(Get your booster shot, yeah? This crap isn’t over yet.)
Maroon 5’s hit came out in 2010 too–doesn’t last long either, but it’s more fun.
Fruity bubble bath and Cinnamon Toast Crunch breakfast cereal. I would have loved this when I was ten.
Mom was the hippest of hippies, Dad a classical musician, and at ten years old I was a bloodthirsty little punk, so of course Judy Collins’ cover of Pirate Jenny from Threepenny Opera was my protest song when asked to help with the housework. Nina Simone covered it best, but I really like this recent one from Shilpa Ray with Nick Cave and Warren Ellis.
Incanto Charms is a party store French maid costume.
Opens with spring floral dishwasher pods, then cleans out fruit peelings left overnight in a Dispose-All, and finishes with vacuum cleaner dust musk. Complete the look with fishnets and rubber cleaning gloves.
Maid-core is a real cosplay thing, and some of those outfits are absolutely amazing. (This song by Samantha Rochford is delightful.)
