Fictionary: Mor-Atorium

Fictionary is a column showcasing beauty-related words that don’t exist, but should.



Stop everything. I’m imposing a Mor-atorium on all your bath and body needs—save for, of course, Mor.  Trust me, you’ll be happy I’m making all your [fragranced item] decisions for you, much as Friends‘ Monica did for Rachel. The Aussie brand has created a new collection called Mor Essentials that’s so beautifully scented and packaged, you’d be a fool to outfit your bathroom with anything else.  Read details on the collection…

The collection boasts a Hand Cream ($14), Hand & Body Lotion ($18), Soap Bar ($10), Hand & Body Wash ($16), Candle ($18) and Body Butter ($16). The scents come in Basil & Grape (a DIVINE combo I never knew I couldn’t live without), Neroli Clementine (fresh, bright and crisp), Black Current Iris (a fabulously sophisticated fruity floral), Sugar Rose Tiger Lily (a light twist on rose even traditionalists will want to stock up on) and Honey Nectar (a light, pretty subtle honey infusion).

I’m currently hoarding full sets of the Basil & Grape AND Neroli Clementine iterations. The small gold logos designated for each scent also kill me softly. Specifically Neroli Clemintine’s, as the tiny Asian fan mirrors my BAT MITZVAH theme. Yes, friends. While my contemporaries were opting for themes like Hollywood, rock & roll, magic and beaches, I drew inspiration from geishas, whom I was obsessed with at the time. That gold embossed fan looks just like the one that graced my bat mitzvah invite in 1993.

The Mor Essentials collection is available at morcosmetics.com. Log on and get a little bit mor, a little bit mor, in the sage words of James Lidell.

P.S. To my fellow Jews, share your BAT MITZVAH theme with me in the comments!
