Tiger Powers is the face (and other body parts) of Opus Oils. Opus Oils is a shop in Hollywood that I really like; they have a winking, playful thing going on that is backed up by seriously nice scents that come in a range of products from oils to body butters. I’m a big fan of their Dirty Sexy Wilde, and really like a lot of the others, like Jitterbug. Like those, the nose behind this scent is perfumer Kedra Hart.
Star Fu$%er (the name is redacted since this is a family blog) is a decidedly smooth little number with (quoting from the press release)
Key Notes Include: Lime, Green Mandarin, Lemon Essence, Italian Bergamot, Wild Orange, Orange Flower Water Absolute, Lavender Seville, Jasmine, Sandalwood, Iso-E Super, Amber, Vetiver, Black Agar, & Oakmoss
It’s bracing, smooth and quite wonderful in that Eau Sauvage/Acqua di Parma old school good smelling kind of way and I thank them for that. While we were having high 90’s and humidity I was surprised at how long-lasting it is. I wore it to a last-minute garden meeting with some of the locals which involved a lot of cheek-kissing with ladies who move and shake. A couple of them who could be well described as “Doyennes” complemented me on how delightful I smelled. I didn’t offer up anything but thanks, although I’m certain that they’d merely smile at the name. It’s a wink and a nod that you could actually take to a garden party or the company picnic or even to be sentenced and think all the while “I smell like outward respectability, but inside I’m still a Star Fu$%er”
Which makes it perhaps an accurate reflection of the Tiger Powers I’ve met. He’s handsome, intelligent and witty and when he isn’t posing in harness or cowboy drag I’d bet he’d charm the living daylights out of your bosses wife.
Star Fu$%er is available in various sizes and formulations at his website. If you’re in Hollywood, call ahead and visit the shop. It’s always nice to spend time with people who are as talented and genuinely nice as are Kedra and Tiger and their crew.
