Apologies to those of you out there who’ve been alienated by our recent New York-centric, high society coverage. We didn’t intend it but sometimes these things happen and before you know it, it’s all “Madison Avenue Maxi,” Brooke Astor and her doxies, and Sexy Beast fragrance for dogs who work near Wall Street.
“If you have a dog sitting on your desk, it’s always better if he has a nice scent,” said Gail Marcus, 60, who brings her dog, an 8½-pound Pomeranian named Nicky, to her office in Long Island City, Queens. (Nicky may have a small body “but he has a lot of coat,” she explained.)
Ms. Marcus sprays him with a scent called Sexy Beast, which she discovered at Henri Bendel’s about a year ago for $65 for a 3.4-ounce bottle. (There is also a limited holiday bling version of Sexy Beast, with encrusted Swarovski crystals, which retails for $850.)
We need a Consumer Reports style test for this to see if it actually works. And, oh yeah, it’s 100% vegan, according to the website.
The bad news is that the author(s) are violating copyright laws like crazy — just grabbing any photos they want and re-using them without permission. Read it while you can because someone may get mad and close ’em down pretty soon. Life with Jamine, our rescue dachshund is the sweet, sweet tale of the slow process of making a once-abused dog whole. Jasmine the Doxie has made a lot of progress but still has a way to go. While she’s bonded with her mistress, we’re still waiting for her to fully accept the man of the house.
