Ricky’s NYC has a new collection of home products, RickyHome, consisting of Scented Candles, Soap on a Rope and Hair, There Every-wear Mist. The collection is right on time for the holiday season and would make the perfect little gifts. There are five fragrance groups Walk of Shame, Banker Husband, Taco Tuesday, Street Meat and Drunk Brunch. The fragrance names are just downright hilarious and truly catches the essence of us “New Yawkers”. I mean Walk of Shame? In the city that never sleeps you are sure to experience this at least once, if not a walk then definitely some form of a ride whether it be a cab, subway or drive. Drunk Brunch? Day parties are quite the rage here and with unlimited Mimosas and Caipirinhas it can quickly become a drunken affair. Yes this is New York City… at it’s not so finest hour lol.
I was sent over a candle and a mist to try out. Let’s start with the Walk of Shame scented candle…
The scented candles comes packaged in an outer box with a story about the origin of the name, and a scratch and sniff patch to sample the fragrance beforehand. The Walk of Shame candle fragrance notes include White Peach, Pineapple, Linen Accord, Jasmine, Sweet Violet, Orris, Sandalwood and White Musk.
The scent is very light, extremely light. Although pleasant, I could barely smell it except for in the direct vicinity of the area that I had the candle burning. I prefer a slightly stronger scent, preferably one that will fill my apartment or at least my living room. The candles retail for $24.
The Hair, There, Every-wear mist can be used on the body, hair and as a room spray. It is truly the multitasker. I found Banker Husband to be the most hilarious name in the group. “What’s the hottest accessory a girl can have? A Birkin bag? Louboutin heels? A Fendi fur? No no…it’s a Banker Husband of course! He’s got to have an MBA for you to get your MRS.” Not entirely ideal, coveted or a reality for all of us in the Big Apple but funny nonetheless.
Banker Husband Hair, There, Every-wear mist has fragrance notes of Petit grain, Cardamom, Lemon Drop, Fir Needle, Orange Flower, Violet Leaf, Rosewood, White Vetiver, Oakmoss, Musk and Sandalwood. It’s not too overpowering and won’t offend anyone on the subway but will have your home smelling nice. I’ve tried it on my body and in the bathroom but haven’t been brave enough to put in my hair yet. With glycerin, proteins and aloe it sounds like it would be a nice hair mist though. The mist retails at $16.
The RickyHome Collection is quite cute but just a tad bit overpriced for me. Still I am curious to try more products in the other fragrance choices. You can purchase the products online at rickysnyc.com or in a Ricky’s NYC store near you.
