New Study Says Men Need Cologne for Self-Confidence; Robert Pattinson Chops Locks

By

FRAGRANCE
• Fragrance is less about the scent and more about how it makes you feel, says a new University of Liverpool study. And then there's this: Men need to first attract themselves before they're able to attract a woman: "When a man changes his natural body odor, it can alter his self-confidence to such an extent that it also changes how attractive women find him." Hear that, boys? Get your spritz on. [Economist via Now Smell This]

• Burger King's Flame fragrance is sold out at all Ricky's NYC. Seriously. [Racked]

HAIR
• Robert Pattinson cut off his greasy long locks in favor of a crew cut. We stared at the picture for a while before realizing that this man's sexiness need not rely on his haircut. [Off the Rack/People]

PLASTIC SURGERY
• British writer Sue Carroll asked Santa for a new face, and he gave it to her in the form of a non-surgical face-lift using the injectable gel Juvederm Ultra. The before-and-after shots look like the past twenty years never happened. Way to go, Santa. [Mirror UK]

SKIN
• The spa Body by Brooklyn is taking These Economic Times into consideration, changing their menu to offer a "recession special," offering couples private rooms for $200, including a bottle of champagne. Relaxing. [NYP]
