Unless you’ve had your head down a rabbit hole for the last while, you’ll know the current flick that’s exciting emo tweens* is Twilight. The first in a vampire saga that’s really far too similar in a lot of ways to the whole Buffy n Angel thang to claim the originality so many are bestowing on it, and kind of horribly badly written too (not to mention the theatrically appalling Muse being thanked in the credits for each book, shudder), Stephenie Meyer is certainly no Anne Rice. I’ve still read it though – and all three subsequent books. Plus I was strangely looking forward to the film debut, too. Cos I’m a sucker, obviously. Yes, pun intended.
But while none of that is news, this is: there’s now a Twilight fragrance. A glossy red bottle is adorned with silver leaves, and it’s all very pretty indeed. Oh – and rather like something we’ve already seen. Yes, why yes, what it most closely resembles is indeed Nina Ricci’s Nina, (above right) slap-bang down its distinctive shape and shiny adornments.
Man, oh man. Seems originality is really not something closely valued by anyone connected to the Twilight empire, eh?
*emo tweens, no hysterical comments hatin’ on me if you please. I’m allowed to have an opinion contrary to the party line. Oh and Edward is swit swoo, by the way.
