Ask Babe: Scent-ual

Hey Babe,

I’m on the hunt for the perfect perfume so I was wondering, what’s your favorite/signature scent?

Psycho for Life,

V*******

 

Scent-less Psycho,

It’s sooooooooo important to have a fragrance story for every occasion. I can’t stress that enough. What you project (scent-wise) at your cousin’s graduation from fat camp should be very different from what you project at your ex-boyfriend’s wedding to his new girlfriend.

I’m going to go ahead and give you a break-down of the scents you need in your cute little life. Bronze Goddess by Estee Lauder is a must. I know you probably think that’s basic as fuck, but it smells like youth/summer in a bottle. I’m talking sunscreen, handjobs, sunscreen handjobs and coconuts. So amazing. It’s a great daytime scent to use for the next four or so months. Another incredible scent is Irene Neuwirth’s Sol 2. It’s an eau de parfum she created specifically for Barneys and it smells like how a yacht in the South of France feels. In the evenings, I like something sexier, so I’ll usually flip flop between Tom Ford’s Santal Blush (if it’s date night) or Le Labo Santal 33 (if it’s gay date night).

Another staple scent that I always have around is Gypsy Water by Byredo. I originally bought it to piss off my Tai Tai, but it smells so good that I always end up going back to it sooner or later. Sometimes if I’m feeling free/poetic/have been on a bender I like to experiment with scented oils, like Egyptian Musk Oil or Kiehl’s Musk Essence Oil, but that only happens every once in awhile. And if I’m feeling dark and dangerous, I’ll go really intense and wear Tuscan Leather by Tom Ford. It smells like coke so…you get the picture.

LOVE YOU. MEAN IT.

Sunday Prayers With Babe Walker

So today is something that the people around me like to call “Mother’s Day.” I can’t say I’ve ever been totally clear on what this is about, because I never really had a mom until like, 3 years ago (wanna know more?!), but I can say that I like any holiday that doesn’t involve making some ridiculous huge meal and forcing it down your family’s and friend’s throats. So here’s to chic moms around the world. And here’s to my mom, Donna Valeo, possibly the chicest woman on earth and also possibly the worst mother on earth.

Here are some of my fave moms, just in case you were interested:

Jacqui Getty!

Lisa Marie Presley!

Daryl Hannah! She doesn’t have any kids but love her.

Diane Lane!

Bjork!

You know her fucking name.

Bye.

LOVE YOU. MEAN IT.
