Fragrance Friday – 3121 by Prince

Today, like many other fans, I’m mourning Prince’s death. I was a big fan – I’d seen him in concert five times. And if I’m totally honest, that purple is my favorite color is from Prince’s influence on my young life.

Prince at the Forum in 2011
Here he is at the Forum in 2011. I went to three of those shows while he was there for the week. Each performance was different and amazing. This was before the Forum got popular again; Prince was there to save what he deemed an important musical venue.

So to honor his memory, today I’m wearing 3121, named after his 2006 album (favorite track is Beautiful, Loved, and Blessed. Black Sweat is a good workout song, too).

3121 smells how you’d expect a Prince fragrance to smell… Like sex. I would not wear this to work. In fact, I’ve hardly worn it at all in the years I’ve owned it; it seems inappropriate for most occasions. It’s listed as a white floral, but I really sniff out the animalic and woodsy scents.

Basically, 3121 is as brash and sexy as Prince himself was.

RIP Prince and thanks for the music.

What was your favorite Prince song? Mine are A Case of U and If I Was Your Girlfriend.


Sunday Social

Oh yes, it’s time for the weekly Sunday Social!
Social Sunday, A Complete Waste of Makeup
1. What is your favorite genre of music?
Too many to choose!
I do love the Latin heartthrobs of my youth, and I love the way their music has changed with their ages. I’ve seen them both Luis Miguel and Alejandro Fernandez in concert several times and they never fail to disappoint.
Luis Miguel, Alejandro Fernandez
Also from my youth are the 80s pop idols who have turned out to be more than pretty faces with flashy MTV videos. I’ve seen both of these guys in concert several times in the last couple of years, and they are seriously talented entertainers.
Prince, George Michael
But the artists with the most plays on my iPod are both British chanteuses. I saw Corinne Bailey Rae in concert once and she’s just as awesome live as she is on her CDs. Amy Winehouse live probably would have pissed me off and made me ask for my money back.

2. What is your favorite genre of movies?
I don’t think I really have a favorite. I don’t like gory movies or slasher flicks.
3. Do you watch reality TV? If so what was the first show you remember watching?
I love HGTV shows! The first reality TV show I remember watching was Frontier House on PBS.
4. Who is an actress you’d want to be BFFs with?
Jennifer Aniston would be a good BFF – she’d give you all of her grooming and beauty tips.
5. Who is an actor you’d be happy to be stuck on an island with?
Ross Kemp seems like a good choice – he’s been in plenty of tough situations and would know how to get off the island. Or he might have a satellite phone to call for help.

What are you listening to lately? Have a great week!
