“Some Like It Hot” and some like it smokin’ hot. I like it smokin’ hot! It’s Valentine’s Day, beautiful, so it’s the perfect time to celebrate one woman who defined smokin’ hot like nobody else…Marilyn Monroe. Juliette Has a Gun created a scented candle, Marilyn, that will help you kick off your own personal celebration of the star. I can’t say anything about Marilyn Monroe that hasn’t already been said. But, to me, she is a perfect image for Valentine’s Day. She inspires femininity and sensuality. By definition, sensuality is the condition of being pleasing or fulfilling to the senses. Marilyn Monroe was exactly that. I’ve never seen a picture of her that I didn’t stare at in awe. The image of Marilyn inspires me to put on my sexiest dress, highest heels, hot red lipstick and celebrate being a woman. Very fitting for Valentine’s Day! Made in France, Juliette Has a Gun made this candle smell like what I’d imagine Marilyn Monroe’s bedroom may have smelled like. I know that sounds silly but once you smell it, I think you’ll agree. Juliette Has a Gun describes this scent as having “powdery lipstick notes” and I completely agree with that description. When I smell the Marilyn candle, it evokes images of a vintage cosmetic bag, red lipstick, a face puff that’s loaded with powder, sexy stockings, and high heels kicked off next to the bed. It’s a very unique smell. The Marilyn candle would make a great and fun gift. The candle itself is very pretty!
Juliette Has a Gun printed the following message on the Marilyn candle and also on the box that the candle comes in:
She wanted to be loved by you…and she was. Marilyn Monroe personified Glamour with her alluring beauty and her voluptuous curves. But Marilyn was more than a 50’s sex goddess. She dominated the age of movie stars to become, without question, the most famous woman of the 20th Century. With it’s powdery lipstick note, this candle is dedicated to her, so that she can live with us a little longer…
Love that! I am absolutely loving Juliette Has a Gun and Marilyn is on my list of their products for you to check out, along with Miss Charming (previously reviewed).
I leave you with the image of Marilyn Monroe in “Some Like It Hot“, singing “I Wanna Be Loved by You”.
I wanna be loved by you
just you and nobody else but you
I wanna be loved by you – alone.
Boo boo bee doo!
Happy Valentine’s Day, beauty’s!
