Scented Tattly – The Perennial Set

scented tattoos

I can barely contain my excitement over the launch of Tattly’s first scented tattoos. The Perennial Set launched yesterday, featuring sumptuous florals by French watercolor artist Vincent Jeannerot.

Their unique fragrance was created in collaboration with Agilex Fragrances, and includes notes of Dewy Fuchsia Petals, Pink Poppies, Ylang Ylang, and Poplar Wood. Next time, instead of a bouquet of flowers for that special someone, bring a Perennial Set instead.

Work at a fragrance house or beauty company? We also do custom tattoos with fragrance.

Challenged

“I know that I’m not the easiest person to live with. The challenge I put on myself is so great that the person I live with feels himself challenged. I bring a lot to bear, and I don’t know how not to.”
– Maya Angelou

Solitude

“Our capacity for what psychoanalyst Adam Phillips has termed “fertile solitude” is absolutely essential not only for our creativity but for the basic fabric of our happiness — without time and space unburdened from external input and social strain, we’d be unable to fully inhabit our interior life, which is the raw material of all art.”

Change

“Even when change is elective, it will disorient you. You may go through anxiety. You will miss aspects of your former life. It doesn’t matter. The trick is to know in advance of making any big change that you’re going to be thrown off your feet by it. So you prepare for this inevitable disorientation and steady yourself to get through it. Then you take the challenge, make the change, and achieve your dream.” 

– Harvey Mackay

(I have posted this quote before, years ago. Always coming back to this one when I go through phases of massive change. Deep breaths.)

Design Matters with Amanda Palmer

“We think that we’re all very connected, we think that we’re all very communicative. But when you actually strip it down, there’s a lot wrong. And the proof is in the pudding — you have a whole society of people who are depressed and insecure and anxious and paranoid and worried … and, fundamentally, feeling very unseen… Maybe we’ve constructed culture in a way that people are not feeling recognized, loved, accepted, happy with their place in society… What have we done to create such unhappiness?”

Mysterious Stacks of Books

Shaheryar Malik has left stacks of books from his own library at popular destinations all over New York City. He doesn’t stick around to see if anyone takes one of his books, nor does he re-visit his stacks. Instead he leaves a bookmark with his email address printed on it inside each book, in the hopes that he’ll hear back from whomever decided to pick that book up.

Beautifully absurd.
