Tom’s post last week about Madonna’s new Truth or Dare (which I actually tried and liked — sort of) got me thinking about celebrity scents over the past few years and the few that I’ve wanted to try.
One that came to mind was the Demi Moore-fronted Helena Rubinstein scent Wanted from a while back. It sounded at least a little interesting, and as I’m always happy to see a woman older than 40 in the fragrance spotlight, I thought I’d give it a go. But when I went to find it, it wasn’t anywhere to be found. So what happened? Did it come and go like lightning in stores and if you blinked, you missed it? Or did it just not appear at all here in the U.S.?
This happened more recently with the Atelier Cologne line. It had been at Neiman Marcus since its inception, but several months ago when I went to try its latest, Ambre Nue, I searched the fragrance department high and low to no avail. I finally asked about it and was told that the store no longer carried the line. (It is, however, available on their Web site.) Guess I’ll have to go online and buy a sample.
Is there a fragrance that you wanted to try, only to find that it was long gone with the wind?
