In other fragrance-related news, Pharrell is crafting a unisex eau dubbed Girl with Comme des Garçons.

If I’m in a bad mood and I’m in traffic, I’ll stop at McDonald’s and get a strawberry shake and fries and not feel guilty at all, because I deserve it.” As for her slight frame, it’s just the result of “good genes.” [Examiner via Allure]
