So I used to work for this guy named Olaf Breuning. One of the first projects he had me work on involved trying to get small, plastic, water-filled boobs (which, yes, me and another female assistant had to carry boxes of from Chinatown through Little Italy to his studio) to sit on plastic shelving. Let’s just say it was as difficult and wrought with glue gun mishaps (mad respect for Tyra Sanchez) as you’d imagine.
OK, I could not find one. single. image. of Episode 5, Season 2 of RuPaul’s Drag Race, Here Comes the Bride, where Tyra Sanchez infamously hot glue guns white lace appliqué TO HER LEGS and then gets called out on her insane, bitchy, slightly violent ways by pretty much everyone in front of panel
Aaaaaanyway, I was perusing the Six Scents Series Three videos and happened upon Boobs and Flowers. (First thought: Heeeey! He used the boobs after all!) The video was “inspired by a feeling [Breuning] had as teenager, life was full of wonderful new things and the newest of all was sexuality,” and, in true Olaf Breuning style, this simple idea is transformed into something hilarious, gorgeous and pretty genius. I mean I’ve never personally been a straight teenage male, but from both personal encounters and what I’ve heard, this video is incredibly accurate. But then there’s also a distinctly female vibe going on, which reflects this video about teenage sexuality being made not by someone currently living it, but rather an older (ha – If you read this, Olaf, I kid!) man reflecting upon his youth. With this video, Breuning has managed to create a completely new genre, Beavis-&-Butthead-meets-Sofia-Coppola, and it’s way better than I ever could have imagined.
Watch more Six Scents Parfums video collaborations here, and get your favorite scent from Series 2 and 3 at our store and online. The one I’m currently wearing is No. 1 Beau Bow by Alexis Mabille & Rodrigo Flores-Roux, but I’m thinking of giving N.Hoolywood & Stephen Nilsen’s No. 5 #087 a chance next.
