How did Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy smell, you ask?
Well maybe you don’t, but I do.
In ANY CASE, today I’m going to be EXTRA creepy & really dissect it for you.
BECAUSE Abdul Kareem Essential Oils Egyptian Musk is the scent.
It comes in a baby bottle & is avail for a cool $16 bucks. That’s right $16 bucks will make you cool as shit just like Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy.
The smell is perfect because it’s not overly perfume-y or cologne-y like that annoying dude in the elevator that *tries* to hit on you. You know the one that’s soaked in cologne head to toe- such an overkill, you know. I always tell Michael: one spray & you’re good, TYSM.
You see with this, you don’t ever have to worry about smelling like a questionable duty-free perfume shop.
But I’ll get back that to that in a sec. If you don’t know who Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy is- WHATTT (?????)— you need to investigate her ASAP. It’s true, I’m a real detective when it comes down to it & had to read every book about John F. Kennedy Jr.’s beautiful, charismatic bride. I’m actually JEALOUS I’m recommending these books to you because you get to read them fresh…Ok so how can you stalk Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy too?
Here’s your CBK homework:
Then read ( TRUST ME THIS BOOK IS SO GOOD YOU WILL NOT PUT IT DOWN ): What Remains: A Memoir of Fate, Friendship, and Love
Recap: first one is about JFK Jr.’s assistant. It will kind of introduce you to the relationship the power couple had. AND then grab What Remains. Overall the author, Carole Radziwill ( that’s right guys, Carole from Real Housewives of New York City ) is just such a good writer- it’s BEAUTIFULLY WRITTEN. Just could not put this one down- the cover could be more creative if we’re being honest here but as they say don’t judge a book by its cover, k? Top it all off with The Other Man. It’s a juicy, JUICY read. One that will have your mouth hanging open. Enjoy every page.
Let’s go back to the OG secret sauce: EGYPTIAN MUSK OIL.
Uh-huh. It really is this secret, magical smelling oil ( swear on my life, guys. It’s that good! ).
Just so you know & full disclosure: it has a musk base & kind of blends in with your skin. You will smell…clean? Ya, clean- that’s how I would describe it. Weird? I know. It’s a day-or-night fragrance & one you can wear alone OR with something stronger. Pick your poison. Kind of a fan of mixing it with this blood orange medley during the day AND then going for Dolce & Gabana mixture at night. But you do you here.
Application is always straight outta the shower- it just stays longer for some reason. Like it sticks right.
Throughout the day I find myself smelling my wrist & smiling. Like I’m in on a real secret.
The trick is where to put it too. For me, I carry it in my purse always & put a dab on my wrist plus a dab on my neck. SEXY. Light but elegant. Chic-est.
The other trick is it has to be THIS specific brand– that’s right folks, THE EXACT ONE CBK wore.
You get my point.
I feel like all TSC readers should walk around smelling like Abdul Kareem Essential Oils Egyptian Musk– kind of a branded TSC-esque scent. Ha! Fun though right? We’re all in on the secret.
Anyway. Where am I going with this? If you’re someone who doesn’t like to smell like a flower shop on crack, you will love this understated, effortless smell. P.S. none of this is sponsored, I just felt like you needed to know that I actively stalk Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy- & you should too…really, there was something so freaking chic about her- the way she carried herself just screamed confidence.
WELL I JUST MADE YOUR WEEKEND PLANS FOR YOU with all these book recs. Really, you won’t be able to put them down AND you’ll want to smell like Carolyn immediately, darling.
